It is not the magnitude of our actions but the amount of love that is put into them that matters.
Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.
There is more hunger in the world for love and appreciation in this world than for bread.
Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.
If you judge people, you have no time to love them.
If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one.
It is a kingly act to assist the fallen.
Loneliness is the most terrible poverty.
- Do not think that love, in order to be genuine, has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired.
- Intense love does not measure, it just gives.
- Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand.
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.
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.
Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.
Smiling is our first act of love.
Peace begins with a smile.
Let us always meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.
We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.
There are no great things, only small things with great love. Happy are those.
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.
The biggest disease today is not leprosy or tuberculosis, but rather the feeling of being unwanted.
