The inscription on the reverse reads:

“I love my neighbour because loving is such a soft, pleasing feeling of well being; unlike the irritating, aggravating frayed nerves of hatred and wrath. Love is a tonic. Makes me feel good. But often I find my neighbour has drunk the poison of hate and prejudice.

I don’t belong to any school: I am not a fish.”
