Famous Spiritual Quotes>
- Words which do
not give the light of Christ increase the darkness.
- How can you love
God, whom you do not see, if you do not love your neighbor, whom you
see, whom you touch, with whom you live?.
- And so it is very
important for us to realize that love, to be true, has to hurt.
- We, the unwilling,
led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful.
- The success of
love is in the loving.
- I must be willing
to give whatever it takes not to harm other people, and, in fact, to
do good to them. Otherwise, there is no true love in me and I bring
injustice, not peace, to those around me.
- Of course it is
natural in love to want the best for the other person, but whether it
turns out that way or not does not determine the value of what we have
- Maybe in our own
family we have somebody who is feeling lonely, who is feeling sick,
who is feeling worried. Are we there? Are we willing to give until it
hurts in order to be with our family, or do we put our interests first?
- The hunger for
love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.
