Someone wished to know if it were a good custom to wear a symbol, as, for
instance, a cross. He said: You wear the cross for remembrance, it
concentrates your thoughts; it has no magical power. Baha'is often wear a
stone with the greatest name engraved on it: there is no magical influence
in the stone; it is a reminder, and companion. If you are about to do some
selfish or hasty action, and your glance falls on the ring on your hand,
you will remember and change your intention.
