Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.

We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.

Let us more and more insist on raising funds of love, of kindness, of understanding, of peace. Money will come if we seek first the Kingdom of God - the rest will be given.

The miracle is not that we do this work but that we are happy to do it.

Love is a fruit in season at all times and within reach of every hand.

Even the rich are hungry for love, for being cared for, for being wanted, for having someone to call their own.

Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is the most terrible poverty.

We need to find God and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass - grows in silence, see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence... We need silence to be able to touch souls.

If you can't feed a hundred people then feed just one.

We have not come into the world to be numbered; we have been created for a purpose; for great things: to love and be loved.

The biggest disease today is not leprosy or tuberculosis, but rather the feeling of being unwanted.

Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted, according to the graces we have received, and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work.

Let us not be satisfied with just giving money. Money is not enough, money can be got, but they need your hearts to love them. So spread your love everywhere you go.

If you want a love message to be heard, it has got to be sent out. To keep a lamp burning we have to keep putting oil in it.

The problem with the world is that we draw the circle of our family too small.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight; build it anyway.

It is Christmas every time you let God love others through you.

The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.

A life not lived for others is not a life.

Your true character is most accurately measured by how you treat those who can do 'nothing' for you.
