Here are today’s quotes. They are both on love. The first is from Dorothy Day, and I have no idea where I found it. The second was originally posted by Mark Mossa, S.J., on the blog You Duped Me Lord (gotta love the name), and is from Pedro Arrupe, S.J., who was Superior General of the Jesuits from 1961-1984.
“It is not love in the abstract that counts. Men have loved a cause as they have loved a woman. They have loved the brotherhood, the workers, the poor, the oppressed – but they have not loved man; they have not loved the least of these. They have not loved personally. It is hard to love. It is the hardest thing in the world, naturally speaking.” – Dorothy Day
“Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love and it will decide everything.” – Pedro Arrupe, S.J
