Human beings are born with a caring heart. The power of love soothes minds, nourishes and enriches life, and brings stability and peace to society and the world. To show the nature of a heart that cares, to highlight its importance, and to trigger the compassion and kindness hidden deep within everyone's hearts, this company on behalf of the ROC is issuing a set of four stamps featuring (1) the "Love for Society" revealed by volunteers who care for the elderly and the physically-challenged, (2) the "Love between Parents and Children" that brings warmth to a family, (3) the "Love for the Earth" with which we treasure our planet and maintain the majesty of our mountains and waters, and (4) the "Love for Animals" that calls for respecting life and caring for animals.
Love starts near and spreads far, starts small and grows large, and starts within and then moves beyond. Love doesn't differentiate among species and races. Each individual is a center point where love gradually expands to the relatives, plants, society, and country around him and finally to even the land that we all live on.
