Charity and wisdom

Where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance. Francis of Assisi

Hear the other side

Hear the other side. Saint Augustine

Scatter there Thy cheerful beams

O Holy Spirit, descend plentifully into my heart. Enlighten the dark corners of this neglected dwelling and scatter there Thy cheerful beams. Saint Augustine

True wisdom

True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves, and the world around us. Socrates

Spread love everywhere

Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier. Mother Teresa

Words of light

Words which do not give the light of Christ increase the darkness. Mother Teresa

Humility

Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it's thinking of yourself less. C. S. Lewis

The safest road to hell

The safest road to hell is the gradual one - the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts. C. S. Lewis

The future

The future is something which everyone reaches at the rate of 60 minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is. C. S. Lewis

we belong to each other

If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other. Mother Teresa

Miracles are not contrary to nature

Miracles are not contrary to nature, but only contrary to what we know about nature. Saint Augustine

In the absence of justice

In the absence of justice, what is sovereignty but organized robbery? Saint Augustine

Don't bother about originality

Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it. C. S. Lewis

Education without values

Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil. C. S. Lewis

The souls of the righteous are immortal …

All men's souls are immortal, but the souls of the righteous are immortal and divine. Socrates

Have peace fully in your heart

While you are proclaiming peace with your lips, be careful to have it even more fully in your heart. Francis of Assisi

Progress

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive. C. S. Lewis

The real problem

The real problem is not why some pious, humble, believing people suffer, but why some do not. C. S. Lewis

Beauty is the bait

Beauty is the bait which with delight allures man to enlarge his kind. Socrates

Men go abroad to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motions of the stars, and they pass by themselves without wondering.

Saint Augustine

When the people of Israel were in captivity, it looked as if the Lord had abandoned them. They were in need of deliverance... Read more>>>

Respect dignities

When we despise dominion and speak evil of dignities we break the divine pattern and bring a tide of curse upon ourselves and those under our care. As those under our authority behold how we treat those in authority over us, they will become fuelled by the same spirit and start to treat us in a similar manner. Once this spirit enters into a community, that community will burst apart at some point fracturing along personality lines. This is the... Read more>>>
