Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
If you judge people, you have no time to love them.
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.
A joyful heart is the inevitable result of a heart burning with love.
We can do no great things; only small things with great love.
The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.
Loneliness is the most terrible poverty.
Learn to self-conquest, persevere thus for a time, and you will perceive very clearly the advantage which you gain from it.
It is not a matter of thinking a great deal but of loving a great deal, so do whatever arouses you most to love.
If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.
Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person.
We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in an ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.
The most terrible poverty is loneliness and the feeling of being unloved.
Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand.
Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.
