My Favorite Quotes

Good friends are like stars. You don't always see them, but you know they're always there.

Warriors are not born and they are not made...Warriors create themselves through trial and error, pain and suffering, and their ability to conquer their own faults...

"Every person's life is a fairy tale written by God's fingers." ~ Hans Christian Anderson

"But I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child, a direct killing of the innocent child. And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love and we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts. Jesus gave even His life to love us. So the mother thinking of abortion should be helped to love, that is, to give until it hurts her plans or her free time, to respect the life of her child. The father of that child, whoever he is, must also give until it hurts. And, by abortion, the father is told that he does not have to take any responsibility at all for the child he has brought into the world. That father is likely to put other women into the same trouble. So abortion just leads to more abortion. Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want. This is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion." ~ St. Mother Teresa 

"Authentic freedom, is never freedom 'from' the truth but always freedom 'in' truth." ~ Blessed John Paul the Second

"Out of the darkness of my life, so much frustrated, I put before you the one great thing to love on earth: the Blessed Sacrament... There you will find romance, glory, honor, fidelity, and the true way of all your loves upon earth, and more than that: Death: by the divine paradox, that which ends life, and demands the surrender of all, and yet by the taste (or foretaste) of which alone can what you seek in your earthly relationships (love, faithfulness, joy) be maintained, or take on that complexion of reality, of eternal endurance, which every man's heart desires." ~ J.R.R. Tolkien

Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

A true friend never gets in your way unless you happen to be going down. - Arnold H. Glasow

"I have never been especially impressed by the heroics of people who are convinced they are about to change the world. I am more awed by those who struggle to make one small difference after another." ~ Ellen Goodman

Never frown, because you never know when someone is falling in love with your smile.

The men of the East may spell the stars, and times and triumphs mark, but the men signed of the cross of Christ, go gaily in the dark. The men of the East may search the scrolls. For sure fates and fame, but the men that drink the blood of God go singing to their shame. ~ The Ballad of the White Horse

"To love another person is to see the face of God." -- Les Miserables

Don't change so people will like you. Be yourself and the right people will love the real you.

You are where God wants you at this very moment. Every experience is part of His Divine Plan.
