The better friends you are, the straighter you can talk, but while you're on nodding terms, be slow to scold. ~ St.Francis Xavier
Give up yourself and you will find your real self. Lose life and you will save it. Submit to death, death of your ambitions and favorite wishes every day, and death of your whole body in the end: Submit with every fiber of your being and you will find eternal life. Keep nothing back. Nothing that you have not given away will ever really be yours. Nothing that has not died will ever be raised from the dead. Look for yourself, and you will find, in the long run, only hatred, loneliness, despair, rage, ruin and decay. But look for Christ and you will find him, and with him everything else thrown in. ~ C.S.Lewis
September 12. 1869. At 11:30 in the morning, the Lord granted me the grace of love for my enemies. I felt it in my heart. ~ St.Anthony Mary Claret
The more I examine the universe and the details of its architecture, the more evidence I find that the universe in some sense must have known we were coming. ~ Freeman Dyson
