It is only in sorrow bad weather masters us; in joy we face the storm and defy it.
Of all human activities, man's listening to God is the supreme act of his reasoning and will.
Pope Paul VI
Men must live and create. Live to the point of tears.
Happiness is the natural flower of duty.
The essential elements of giving are power and love - activity and affection - and the consciousness of the race testifies that in the high and appropriate exercise of these is a blessedness greater than any other.
Nothing makes one feel so strong as a call for help.
Pope Paul VI
Plant thy foot firmly in the prints which His foot has made before thee.
Joseph Barber Lightfoot
Nurture your minds with great thoughts. To believe in the heroic makes heroes.
Tears of joy are like the summer rain drops pierced by sunbeams.
What we achieve inwardly will change outer reality.
The meaning I picked, the one that changed my life: Overcome fear, behold wonder.
The only thing that ultimately matters is to eat an ice-cream cone, play a slide trombone, plant a small tree, good God, now you're free.
Think with your whole body.
I am deliberate and afraid of nothing.
As knowledge increases, wonder deepens.
Thought is the wind, knowledge the sail, and mankind the vessel.
We convince by our presence.
Mankind is made great or little by its own will.
Joy descends gently upon us like the evening dew, and does not patter down like a hailstorm.
Our ideals are our better selves.
Amos Bronson Alcott
