The bee collects honey from flowers in such a way as to do the least damage or destruction to them, and he leaves them whole, undamaged and fresh, just as he found them.
Saint Francis de Sales
Be who you are and be that well.
Through devotion, your family cares become more peaceful, mutual love between husband and wife becomes more sincere, the service we owe to the prince more faithful, and our work, no matter what it is, becomes more pleasant and agreeable.
Half an hour's meditation each day is essential, except when you are busy. Then a full hour is needed.
By turning your eyes on God in meditation, your whole soul will be filled with God. Begin all your prayers in the presence of God.
We must never undervalue any person. The workman loves not that his work should be despised in his presence. Now God is present everywhere, and every person is His work.
Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections.
Never be in a hurry do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.
Make friends with the angels, who though invisible are always with you. Often invoke them, constantly praise them, and make good use of their help and assistance in all your temporal and spiritual affairs.
When you encounter difficulties and contradictions, do not try to break them, but bend them with gentleness and time.
Nothing is so strong as gentleness, nothing so gentle as real strength.
Have patience with all things, But, first of all with yourself.
Those who love to be feared fear to be loved.
A quarrel between friends, when made up, adds a new tie to friendship.
