May Maxwell's tribute to Lua Getsinger

Lua Getsinger
Great and wonderful were her qualities - in her own person she bore the sins and weaknesses of us all, and redeeming herself she redeemed us. She broke the path through the untrod forest; she cast her soul and body into the stream and perished making the bridge by which we cross... The passion of Divine love that consumed her heart shall light the hearts of mankind forever and forever. 
- May Maxwell  (Quoted in the 'In-Memoriam' section of 'The Baha’i World 1938-1940')
