Some suggestions for you :

If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

Our poor people are great people, a very lovable people, They don't need our pity and sympathy. They need our understanding love and they need our respect. We need to tell the poor that they are somebody to us that they, too, have been created, by the same loving hand of God, to love and be loved.

I hope that what you give me comes not from your surplus but it is the fruit of a sacrifice made for the love of God. You must give what costs you, go without something you like, then you will truly be brothers to the poor who are deprived of even the things they need.

Love begins by taking care of the closest ones – the ones at home.

The moment passed — but the darkness is so dark, and the pain is so painful. – But I accept whatever He gives and I give whatever He takes.

God doesn't look at how much we do, but with how much love we do it.

I am only a pencil in the hand of God, but it is He who writes.

We have a great deal of worth in the eyes of God. I never tire of saying over and over again that God loves us. It is a wonderful thing that God Himself loves me tenderly. That is why we should have courage, joy, and the conviction that nothing can separate us from the love of Christ.

I'm a little pencil in the hand of a writing God, who is sending a love letter to the world.

If our bones were not sending whispers of doubt to our hearts, there would be no need for prayer at all.

She knows how to suffer and at the same time how to laugh.

If you are successful you may win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway.

Cheerfulness is a sign of a generous and mortified person who forgetting all things, even herself, tries to please her God in all she does for souls. Cheerfulness is often a cloak which hides a life of sacrifice and a continual union with God.

At the hour of death when we come face-to-face with God, we are going to be judged on love; not how much we have done, but how much love we put into the doing.
