Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.
1 JOHN 4:7 NKJV

William Penn (1644 to 1718), an English Quaker and an early advocate of democracy and religious freedom, founded the city of Philadelphia in 1682 to serve as capital of the Pennsylvania Colony. Penn named the city Philadelphia, which is Greek for "brotherly love," derived from the Ancient Greek terms φίλος phílos (beloved, dear) and ἀδελφός adelphós (brother, brotherly). As a Quaker, Penn had experienced religious persecution and wanted his colony to be a place where anyone could worship freely. (Wikipedia.org)
