You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.
You may forget the one with whom you have laughed, but never the one with whom you have wept.
Life without liberty is like a body without spirit.
Poverty is a veil that obscures the face of greatness. An appeal is a mask covering the face of tribulation.
The earth is like a beautiful bride who needs no manmade jewels to heighten her loveliness.
You pray in your distress and in your need; would that you might also pray in the fullness of your joy and in your days of abundance.
Oh Jesus, they have built these churches for the sake of their own glory, and embellished them with silk and melted gold. . . . They left the bodies of Thy chosen poor wrapped in tattered raiment in the cold night. . . . They filled the sky with the smoke of burning candles and incense and left the bodies of Thy faithful worshipers empty of bread. . . . They raised their voices with hymns of praise, but deafened themselves to the cry and moan of the widows and orphans. Come again, Oh Living Jesus, and drive the vendors of Thy faith from Thy sacred temple, for they have turned it into a dark cave where vipers of hypocrisy and falsehood crawl and abound.
To understand the heart and mind of a person, look not at what he has already achieved, but at what he aspires to do
All free governments are managed by the com Where can I find a man governed by reason instead of habits and urges?
Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.
I wash my hands of those who imagine chattering to be knowledge, silence to be ignorance, and affection to be art.
It is well to give when asked, but it is better to give unasked, through understanding.
Let there be spaces in your togetherness.
Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.
A shy failure is nobler than an immodest success.
