'Certainly, it is not the spiritual which comes first, but the natural, (1 Corinthians 15.46) so one must proceed by the usual order of things, from active work to the quiet of contemplation, and from moral virtues to spiritual and contemplative realities. Finally, my soul, why are you uselessly preoccupied with so many things, and always busy with them? Seek out and love the one supreme good, in which is all that is worth seeking, and that will be enough for you. Unhappy therefore is he who knows and possesses everything other than this, and does not know this.'

Respect the elders and love the young.....if you have a disagreement with someone, make peace with them before the sun goes down.
Finally, and importantly, never lose hope in God's mercy.

O God, you have taught me from my youth,
and I proclaim your wonders still.

Even till I am old and gray-headed,
do not forsake me, O God.
Let me tell of your mighty arm
to every coming generation;
your strength and your justice, O God,
reach to the highest heavens.
It is you who have worked such wonders.
O God, who is like you?

You have made me witness many troubles and evils,
but you will give me back my life.
You will raise me from the depths of the earth;
you will exalt me and console me again.

So I will give you thanks on the Lyre
for your faithfullness, O my God.
To you will I sing with the harp,
to you, the Holy One of Israel.
Psalm71:17-22

O Lord, open my lips.
And my mouth will proclaim your praise.

I love to see/hear the psalms! They seem so complete and 'worthy' of Him.

'Look at the reality: psalmody succeeds psalmody; reading, reading; study, study; prayer, prayer, like a wheel drawing us and joining us to God. How truly excellent is this way of life, how supremely excellent! How blessed this life and thrice-blessed!'

This is a wonderful thread. Thank you, everyone, for the quotes.

As a former pagan, this is one of my favorites:

I do not hold to the voice of birds, or any luck on the earthly world, or chance or a son or a woman. Christ the Son of God is my Druid; Christ the Son of Mary, the great Abbot; the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit. My estates are with the King of Kings; my order is at Cenacles and Moen.

This is the mark of Christianity.....however much a man toils, and however many righteousness-es he performs, to feel that he has done nothing, and in fasting to say, "This is not fasting", and in praying, "This is not prayer", and in perseverance at prayer, "I have shown no perseverance;
I am only beginning to practice and to take pains"; and even if he is righteous before God, he should say, "I am not righteous, not I ; I do not take pains, but only make a beginning every day."

We should bear in mind and realize that when we call God our Father, we ought also act like sons. If we are pleased to call him Father, let him in turn be pleased to call us sons.

Only the new man learns a new song; the one restored from his fallen condition through the grace of God. Let us sing a new song, not with our lips but with our lives.

A song of virtue, a song of Christ, a song of sons!

'He who with fear of God admonishes or corrects a man who has sinned, gains the virtue that is opposite to that sin. But he who reproaches him out of rancor and ill will becomes subject to a similar passion, according to the spiritual law.'

'Let us take refuge in the Wound of the Sacred Side like a poor traveller, who seeks a safe harbor in which to shelter from the rocks and tempests of the stormy sea of this life, for here below we are continually exposed to shipwreck, unless we have the help of our all-wise Pilot.'

St. Margaret Mary Alacoque
