Leo Tolstoy. Maybe found the truth in the last 20 years. From the book, Gandhi Tolstoy letters.

The Law of Violence and the Law of Love, and in his essay, “The only Commandment,” written a few years before his death, Tolstoy discusses the reasons why educated people, and even those who claim to be religious, ignore this eternal, all embracing law of love. Tolstoy asserts that love purifies the individual and is the essence of life. The fruit of love is happiness. Happiness comes not because man loves his fellowmen but because he loves the source of all, namely God. God dwells in all of us and therefore man recognizes God in himself through love and extends this love to all men. Man needs to let love in and squeeze out hatred, guile and vengeance from his being.
