Love Chooses You.

"You seem to think you have a choice,' Cam said. 'But you have it backwards. Love chooses you. The shadow moves as the sun commands." -Lisa Kleypas

"I've noticed something about people who make a difference in the world. They hold the unshakable conviction that individuals are extremely important, that every life matters. They get excited over one smile. They are willing to feed one stomach, educate one mind, and treat one wound. They aren't determined to revolutionize the world all at once; they're satisfied with small changes. Over time, though, the small changes add up. Sometimes they even transform cities and nations, and yes, the world." -Beth Clark

"It is not fair to treat people as if they are finished beings. Everyone is always becoming and unbecoming." -Kathleen Winter

"We are all capable of good and evil. We are not born bad; everybody has something good inside. Some hide it, some neglect it, but it is there. God created us to love and to be loved, so it is our test from God to choose one path or the other." -Mother Teresa

"Our deepest calling is to grow into our own authentic self-hood, whether or not it conforms to some image of who we ought to be. As we do so, we will not only find the joy that every human being seeks– we will also find our path of authentic service in the world." -Parker J. Palmer

"When a man loves a woman, he has to become worthy of her. The higher her virtue, the more noble her character, the more devoted she is to truth, justice, goodness, the more a man has to aspire to be worthy of her. The history of civilization could actually be written in terms of the level of its women." -Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen

"Love has sacred power, not because it makes us high, allowing us to rise above ordinary life on clouds of blissful glory, but because it helps us relax the struggle between self and other that is at the root of human suffering. Love is profound because it roots us in the earth…. The profound question love poses is, 'Can you face your life as it is; can you look at all the pain and darkness as well as the power and light in the human soul, and still say yes?'" -John Welwood, Journey of the Heart
