<*}}}>< Quote for Today: on Bearing Wrongs Patiently - 1
- "He has great tranquillity of heart who cares
neither for the praises nor the fault-finding of
men. He will easily be content and pacified,
whose conscience is pure. You are not holier if
you are praised, nor the more worthless if you
are found fault with. What you are, that you
are; neither by word can you be made greater than
what you are in the sight of God."
-St. Thomas à Kempis
Let every one of you please his neighbor by doing
good, for his edification. Rom. 15:2
Adversity is the touchstone of the soul, because
it makes manifest the degree of its virtue. One
act of thanksgiving when matters go wrong, is
worth a thousand thanks when all things please us.
~ Msgr. Paul Guérin
If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.
St. Matthew 5:39
There is no such thing as a problem without a gift for you in its hands
When you encounter difficulties and
contradictions, do not try to break them, but
bend them with gentleness and time.
-St Francis de Sales
"Why should we defend ourselves when we are
misunderstood and misjudged? Let us leave that
aside. Let us not say anything. It is so sweet to
let others judge us in any way they like. O
blessed silence, which gives so much peace to the soul!"
--St. Theresa, Little Flower of Jesus
