the school of love

Francis de Sales said, “You learn to speak by speaking… to work by working; and just so, you learn to love by loving. All those who think to learn in any other way deceive themselves.” As I read this I immediately thought of how Augustine describes this development: “As love grows within you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul.”

Let us remember that love lives through sacrifice and is nourished by giving. ― Maximilian Kolbe

“We have not come into the world to be numbered; we have been created for a purpose; for great things: to love and be loved.” – Mother Teresa
