There is something in the unselfish and self-sacrificing love of a brute, which goes directly to the heart of him who has had frequent occasion to test the paltry friendship and gossamer fidelity of mere Man.
Whoever knows it also knows that in love there is no More and no Less; but that he who loves can only love with the whole heart, and with the whole soul; with all his strength and with all his will.
The homeland affects you directly: it affects your body; it affects the collective mind and the collective heart and the collective spirit.
Faith is an oasis in the heart which will never be reached by the caravan of thinking.
Purity of heart is to will one thing.
In prayer it is better to have a heart without words than words without a heart.
A kiss makes the heart young again and wipes out the years.
How good is man’s life, the mere living! How fit to employ all the heart and the soul and the senses forever in joy!
Keep your feet on the ground, but let your heart soar as high as it will. Refuse to be average or to surrender to the chill of your spiritual environment.
To discover your mission and put it into action – instead of worrying on the sidelines – is to find peace of mind and a heart full of love.
