Beware lest ye give ear to the words of those from whom the foul smell of malice and envy can be discerned; pay no heed to them, and stand ye for righteousness.
(Bahá’u’lláh, The Summons of the Lord of Hosts, p. 199)
For malice is a grievous malady which depriveth man from recognizing the Great Being, and debarreth him from the splendors of the sun of certitude. We pray and hope that through the grace and mercy of God He may remove this mighty obstacle. He, verily, is the Potent, the All-Subduing, the Almighty.
(Bahá’u’lláh, Epistle to the Son of the Wolf, p. 96)
Purge thy heart from malice and … enter the divine court of holiness.
(Bahá’u’lláh, The Persian Hidden Words 42)
