Abdu’l-Bahá’s last address:

He is God! This is our last day and my last meeting with you. In a few minutes our steamer will leave these shores
and this is my last exhortation to you. I have repeatedly spoken to you and invited you to realize the oneness of
humanity. I have impressed upon you that all human beings are the servants of the same God and God is kind to all; He provides for all and gives life to all. In the presence of God all are His servants and His bounties are equally distributed among all. We must also be kind to the people of the world and forget all religious, racial, patriotic and political prejudices. The whole earth is one globe. All nations are one family. All are the servants of one God.”
— Mahmud’s Diary, 429-430.
