Speak to each person with the language of love.
Do not raise your voice.
Do not swear.
Do not hurt anyone.
Do not provoke tears.
Be reassuring and show goodness.

The mural was created as part of the Big Book Festival. It was inspired by the title of Gabriel García Márquez’s novel “Love in the Time of Cholera” and a sentence from it: “There is nothing more difficult in this world than love”.
