  4. “I want you to be concerned about your next door neighbor. Do you know your next door neighbor?”

  2. “God doesn’t require us to succeed, he only requires that you try.”
  3. “Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.”

  5. “Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.”
  6. “Joy is prayer; joy is strength: joy is love; joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.”
  7. “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.”
  8. “Peace begins with a smile.”
  9. “Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is the most terrible poverty.”

“We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty.”
