Thought of the Moment

Forgiveness

Forgiveness is the name of love practiced among people who love poorly. The hard truth is that all people love poorly. We need to forgive and be forgiven every day, every hour increasingly. That is the great work of love among the fellowship of the weak that is the human family.

A friend who cares

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.

One Life

If you suddenly realized this entire thing was a dream, and you could suddenly do whatever you wanted (other than hurting someone) what would you do? Whatever answer that you came up with, do that.

Healing

Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.

Love is an act of faith

Love means to commit oneself without guarantee, to give oneself completely in the hope that our love will produce love in the loved person. Love is an act of faith, and whoever is of little faith is also of little love.

Respect

Respect is one of the greatest expressions of love.

Good Harmony

A choir is made up of many voices, including yours and mine. If one by one all go silent then all that will be left are the soloists.

Don’t let a loud few determine the nature of the sound. It makes for poor harmony and diminishes the song.

If you want help

I'd always end up broken down on the highway.  When I stood there trying to flag someone down, nobody stopped.  But when I pushed my own car, other drivers would get out and push with me.  If you want help, help yourself - people like to see that.

Good Character

Good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you and were helped by you will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered. Carve your name on hearts, not on marble.

Parenting

Being considerate of others will take your children further in life than any college degree.
