"It is not the actual physical exertion that counts towards one's progress, nor the nature of the task, but by the spirit of FAITH with which it is undertaken."
"No one can ever excel in GREAT THINGS who does not first excel in small."
"The inner life of another that is known to God alone becomes to a much less degree open to us through friendship. It partially fills the desire of our incomplete, lonely hearts for completeness in another. Friendship brings out the best in a person through forgetfulness of self." - St. Thomas Aquinas
