Some suggestions for you :

Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself.

Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.

Jesus was not sent here to teach the people to build magnificent churches and temples amidst the cold wretched huts and dismal hovels. He came to make the human heart a temple, and the soul an altar, and the mind a priest.

Not without a wound in the spirit shall I leave this city.

Love possesses not nor would it be possessed; for love is sufficient unto love.

Hallow the body as a temple to comeliness and sanctify the heart as a sacrifice to love; love recompenses the adorers.

The things which the child loves remain in the domain of the heart until old age. The most beautiful thing in life is that our souls remain hovering over the places where we once enjoyed ourselves. I am one of those who remembers those places regardless of distance or time.

For the vision of one man lends not its wings to another man.

Darkness may hide the trees and the flowers from the eyes but it cannot hide love from the soul.

Work is love made visible. And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work…For if you bake with indifference, you bake a bitter bread.

I wash my hands of those who imagine chattering to be knowledge, silence to be ignorance, and affection to be art.

But let there be no scales to weigh your unknown treasure.

They see only their shadows, and their shadows are their laws.

You are good when you strive to give of yourself.
