Loneliness and the feeling of being uncared for and unwanted are the greatest poverty.
We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean…
But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.
If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one.
We can do no great things, only small things with great love.
Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within the reach of every hand.
Duty is a very personal thing.. It is what comes from knowing the need to take action and not just a need to urge others to do something.
I see God in every human being.
Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
If you judge people, you have no time to love them.
Intense love does not measure, it just gives.
Profound joy of the heart is like a magnet that indicates the path of life.
If you can’t do great things, do little things with great love.
If you can’t do them with great love, do them with a little love.
If you can’t do them with a little love, do them anyway.
Love grows when people serve.
Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier.. Be the living expression of God’s kindness.. kindness in your face, in your eyes, in your smile.
Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.
I know God won’t give me anything I can’t handle.. I just wish he didn’t trust me so much.
Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.
God doesn’t require us to succeed, He only requires that you try.
Live simply so others may simply live.
Prayer is not asking.. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at His disposition, and listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts.
I can do things you cannot, you can do things I cannot.. together we can do great things.
A life not lived for others is not a life.
I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.
I am not sure exactly what heaven will be like, but I know that when we die and it comes time for God to judge us, He will not ask, ‘How many good things have you done in your life ?’ rather He will ask, ‘How much love did you put into what you did ?’
If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.
If you are humble nothing will touch you, neither praise nor disgrace, because you know what you are.
I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God, who is sending a love letter to the world.
One of the greatest diseases is to be nobody to anybody.
Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.
A joyful heart is the inevitable result of a heart burning with love.
It is a kingly act to assist the fallen.
I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.
Do not think that love in order to be genuine has to be extraordinary.
What we need is to love without getting tired.
Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.
Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody.. I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow.. Do good anyway.
When you don’t have anything, then you have everything.
Yesterday is gone.. Tomorrow has not yet come.. We have only today.. Let us begin.
