QuoteIcon June282011
“Loss of an object causes grief only in proportion to the affection you have for it; if we had no regard for it, we should feel no grief at being deprived of it. Do you know great grief at being without wealth, honors, beauty, and so forth? These things do not afflict you, and you never give a thought to them. The same would apply to your desire for God, were that desire truly absent from your heart. If then, this seeming absence afflicts you, evidently the absence is not a real one.”
~Father Jean-Pierre de Caussade

“You go on being worldly, frivolous, and giddy because you are a coward. What is it, if not cowardice, to refuse to face yourself?”

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love. Where there is injury, pardon. Where there is doubt, faith. Where there is despair, hope. Where there is darkness, light. Where there is sadness, joy.
Divine Master, grant that I not so much seek to be consoled, as to console;to be understood, as to understand; to be loved, as to love. 
For it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.  
-Prayer of St. Francis

Life Isn’t/Life Is

I first read these words from a story in Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul when I was in high school. They had such an impact on me that I fancily typed them up, formatted them in a colorful fashion (surprise, surprise), and used them to craft a hanging plaque-esque room decoration. When I went away to college, I took the words with me. They have not ceased to influence my thoughts, actions, and attitude towards life. I plan on bringing that crafted plaque back to high school—in my classroom, when I’m a teacher. Hopefully they can be words of inspiration to you all as well…   

"Life isn’t about keeping score. It’s not about how many people call you and it’s not about who you’ve dated, are dating, or haven’t dated at all. It isn’t about who you’ve kissed, what sport you play, or which guy or girl likes you. It’s not about your shoes or your hair or the color of your skin or where you live or go to school. In fact, it’s not about grades, money, clothes, or colleges that accept you or not. Life isn’t about if you have lots of friends or if you are alone; and it’s not about how accepted or unaccepted you are. Life just isn’t about that.

But life is about who you love and who you hurt. It’s about how you feel about yourself. It’s about trust, happiness, and compassion. It’s about sticking up for your friends and replacing inner hate with love. Life is about avoiding jealousy, overcoming ignorance, and building confidence. It’s about what you say and what you mean. It’s about seeing people for who they are and not what they have. Most of all, it is about choosing to use your life to touch someone else’s in a way that could never have been achieved otherwise. These choices are what life’s about.”

“He said, ‘I am way and truth and life.’ He truly is… For those who through being wronged, through anguish and abuse, through disgrace, suffering, and torment follow this Word in true holy poverty, those who bear with injury, and suffer humbly and meekly and with genuine good patience, learning from this Master who is himself the way—such people give everyone good for evil.”
Saint Catherine of Siena
