Many believe - and I believe - that I have been designated for this work by God. In spite of my old age, I do not want to give it up; I work out of love for God and I put all my hope in Him.
You see many stars at night in the sky but find them not when the sun rises; can you say that there are no stars in the heaven of day? So, O man! because you behold not God in the days of your ignorance, say not that there is no God.
I think the biggest disease the world suffers from in this day and age is the disease of people feeling unloved. I know that I can give love for a minute, for half an hour, for a day, for a month, but I can give. I am very happy to do that, I want to do that.
God is day and night, winter and summer, war and peace, surfeit and hunger.
We can't form our children on our own concepts; we must take them and love them as God gives them to us.
God loves to help him who strives to help himself.
My friend made me a leather dress for the MTV awards. It gives you confidence, wearing something you love.
If only God would give me some clear sign! Like making a large deposit in my name at a Swiss bank.
If you have only one smile in you, give it to the people you love. Don't be surly at home, then go out in the street and start grinning 'Good morning' at total strangers.
True love is inexhaustible; the more you give, the more you have.
Though everything else may appear shallow and repulsive, even the smallest task in music is so absorbing, and carries us so far away from town, country, earth, and all worldly things, that it is truly a blessed gift of God.
In order to acquire a growing and lasting respect in society, it is a good thing, if you possess great talent, to give, early in your youth, a very hard kick to the right shin of the society that you love. After that, be a snob.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
You don't want to love - your eternal and abnormal craving is to be loved. You aren't positive, you're negative. You absorb, absorb, as if you must fill yourself up with love, because you've got a shortage somewhere.
This above all: to thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.
To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.
But no one frees himself from being in love in three days.
I live and love in God's peculiar light.
The fact is that love is of two kinds, one which commands, and one which obeys. The two are quite distinct, and the passion to which the one gives rise is not the passion of the other.
My sorrow, when she's here with me, thinks these dark days of autumn rain are beautiful as days can be; she loves the bare, the withered tree; she walks the sodden pasture lane.
If men cease to believe that they will one day become gods then they will surely become worms.
I don't think I've ever been in love, I'm sure I will be some day. I've had enormous crushes, although I've never been into the Brad Pitt thing.
God gives all to those, who get up early.
To love another person is to see the face of God.
To love someone means to see him as God intended him.
