Whosoever does not persecute them that persecute him; whosoever takes an offence in silence; he who does good because of love; he who is cheerful under his sufferings?these are the friends of God, and of them the Scripture says, ?They shall shine forth like the sun at noontide.?
why can´t you realize the 1000 times I walk beside you the 2000 times I blushed when you are near the 3000 times I stared at you and blushed when you find out the 4000 times I tried to talk to you but I didn´t have an excuse the 5000 times that I dream of your smileand the million times I´ve found out that no matter how many times I walk beside you, blushed when you are near, stare at you, try to talk to you, dream of your smile you´ll never fall in love with me...
With all humility, I think, Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might. Infinitely more important than the vain attempt to love one's neighbor as one's self. If you want to hit a bird on the wing, you must have all your will in focus, you must not be thinking about yourself, and equally, you must not be thinking about your neighbor: you must be living in your eye on that bird. Every achievement is a bird on the wing.
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 and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy.
