“Be charitable in your thoughts, in your speech and in your actions. Be charitable in your judgments, in your attitudes and in your prayers. Think charitably of your friends, your neighbors, your relatives and even your enemies. And if there be those whom you can help in a material way, do so in a quiet, friendly, neighborly way, as if it were the most common and everyday experience for you. Tongues of men and angels, gifts of prophecy and all mysteries and all knowledge are as nothing without charity.”
~Patrick Joseph, Cardinal Hayes

“I owe much to my friends; but, all things considered, it strikes me that I owe even more to my enemies. The real person springs to life under a strain even better than under a caress.”
~André Gide
