You learn to speak by speaking, to study by studying, to run by running, to work by working; in just the same way, you learn to love by loving.

For it is in giving that we receive.
Lord, grant that I might not so much seek to be loved as to love.
It is not fitting, when one is in God's service, to have a gloomy face or a chilling look.
Do not wish to be anything but what you are, and try to be that perfectly.
Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections, but instantly set about remedying them -- every day begin the task anew -
A quarrel between friends, when made up, adds a new tie to friendship.
Do not wish to be anything except what you are.
One must really have suffered oneself to help others.
We can not do great things. We can only do little things with great love.
Many people mistake our work for our vocation. Our vocation is the love of Jesus.
There must be a reason why some people can afford to live well. They must have worked for it. I only feel angry when I see waste. When I see people throwing away things that we could use.
There is always the danger that we may just do the work for the sake of the work. This is where the respect and the love and the devotion come in --that we do it to God, to Christ, and that's why we try to do it as beautifully as possible.
Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.
The ship of heaven guides itself and will not accept a wooden rudder.
The eloquent man is he who is no eloquent speaker, but who is inwardly drunk with a certain belief.
Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.
Smile at each other, smile at your wife, smile at your husband, smile at your children, smile at each other -- it doesn't matter who it is -- and that will help you to grow up in greater love for each other.
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.
Our life of poverty is as necessary as the work itself. Only in heaven will we see how much we owe to the poor for helping us to love God better because of them.
It's not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.
To keep a lamp burning we have to keep putting oil in it.
If you judge people, you have no time to love them.
Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls. A joyful heart is the inevitable result of a heart burning with love
I believe in person to person. Every person is Christ for me, and since there is only one Jesus, that person is the one person in the world at that moment.
Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
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.
In this life we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love
One filled with joy preaches without preaching.
Everybody today seems to be in such a terrible rush, anxious for greater developments and greater riches and so on, so that children have very little time for their parents. Parents have very little time for each other, and in the home begins the disruption of peace of the world.
If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.
Do not think that love in order to be genuine has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired. Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.
I have found the paradox that if I love until it hurts, then there is no hurt, but only more love.
Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do... but how much love we put in that action.
There is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way.
Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.
We forget that every good that is worth possessing must be paid for in strokes of daily effort. We postpone and postpone, until those smiling possibilities are dead.
