Quote Left The system -- the American one, at least -- is a vast and noble experiment. It has been polestar and exemplar for other nations. But from kindergarten until she graduates from college the girl is treated in it exactly like her brothers. She studies the same subjects, becomes proficient at the same sports. Oh, it is a magnificent lore she learns, education for the mind beyond anything Jane Austen or Saint Theresa or even Mrs. Pankhurst ever dreamed. It is truly Utopian. But Utopia was never meant to exist on this disheveled planet. Quote Right
Quote Left If your baby is… Beautiful and perfect, never cries or fusses, sleeps on schedule and burps on demand, and angel all the time, You're the Grandma Quote Right
Quote Left When Christ said: I was hungry and you fed me, he didn't mean only the hunger for bread and for food; he also meant the hunger to be loved. Jesus himself experienced this loneliness. He came amongst his own and his own received him not, and it hurt him then and it has kept on hurting him. The same hunger, the same loneliness, the same having no one to be accepted by and to be loved and wanted by. Every human being in that case resembles Christ in his loneliness; and that is the hardest part, that's real hunger. Quote Right
Quote Left We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty. Quote Right
Quote Left The finest gift you can give anyone is encouragement. Yet, almost no one gets the encouragement they need to grow to their full potential. If everyone received the encouragement they need to grow, the genius in most everyone would blossom and the world would produce abundance beyond the wildest dreams. We would have more than one Einstein, Edison, Schweitzer, Mother Theresa, Dr. Salk and other great minds in a century. Quote Right

Quote Left And the prayers. I can't stress how important the prayers have been, because I know that's why I feel as good as I do. Quote Right
Quote Left We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But if that drop was not in the ocean, I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop. I do not agree with the big way of doing things. Quote Right
Quote Left We must have a real living determination to reach holiness. I will be a saint means I will despoil myself of all that is not God; I will strip my heart of all created things; I will live in poverty and detachment; I will renounce my will, my inclinations, my whims and fancies, and make myself a willing slave to the will of God. Quote Right
Quote Left If there are people who feel that God wants them to change the structures of society, that is something between them and their God. We must serve him in whatever way we are called. I am called to help the individual; to love each poor person. Not to deal with institutions. I am in no position to judge. Quote Right
Quote Left We are all Barbie Dolls. The world dresses us up in different outfits and tries to make us what they want us to be. But inside, we are all still just hollow plastic shells. Quote Right

Quote Left If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other. Quote Right
Quote Left Let us not be satisfied with just giving money. Money is not enough, money can be got, but they need your hearts to love them. So, spread your love everywhere you go. Quote Right
Quote Left I never add up. I only subtract from the total dying... . . . It is not the magnitude of our actions but the amount of love that is put into them that matters. Quote Right
Quote Left Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing. Quote Right
Quote Left I know God will not give me anything I can't handle, I just wish that He didn't trust me so much Quote Right
Quote Left Without out suffering, our work would just be social work, very good and helpful, but it would not be the work of Jesus Christ, not part of the Redemption. All the desolation of the poor people, not only their material poverty, but their spiritual destitution, must be redeemed. And we must share it, for only by being one with them can we redeem them by bringing God into their lives and bringing them to God. Quote Right
Quote Left If you judge people Quote Right
Quote Left If we want a love message to be heard, it has to be sent out. To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it. Quote Right
Quote Left We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature--trees, flowers, grass--grows in silence see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence...we need silence to be able to touch souls. Quote Right
Quote Left Kind words may be short... but their echoes are endless. Quote Right
Quote Left The trouble is that rich people, well-to-do people, very often don't really know who the poor are; and that is why we can forgive them, for knowledge can only lead to love, and love to service. And so, if they are not touched by them, it's because they do not know them. Quote Right
Quote Left Let us more and more insist on raising funds of love, of kindness, of understanding, of peace. Money will come if we seek first the Kingdom of God-the rest will be given. Quote Right
Quote Left If you do good, people may accuse you of selfish motives. Do good anyway. Quote Right
Quote Left Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within the reach of every hand. Quote Right
Quote Left We are all pencils in the hand of God writing love letters to the world Quote Right

Member Quotes About Theresa

Quote Left If a white man says Theresa May is not a good Prime Minister it's seen as a personal point of view, if he then says the Mayor of London is not a good Mayor he is accused of being racist, isn't it ironic how he isn't seen as sexist but then is seen as racist. Sometimes victims are invented by themselves. Quote Right
