A Moments Wisdom on Goodness
–A man is only as good as what he loves.
–The greatest pleasure I know is to do a good action by stealth, and to have it found out by accident.
–Die when I may, I want it said of me by those who know me best, that I have always plucked a thistle and planted a flower where I thought a flower would grow.
–Sin is anything that separates us from God. If we are so good that we don’t feel any need for God’s mercy, then our goodness is sin.
–The omission of good is no less reprehensible than the commission of evil.
–All the beautiful sentiments in the world weigh less than a single lovely action.
–What we give to the poor for Christ’s sake is what we carry with us when we die.
–Let us not paralyze our capacity for good by brooding over man’s capacity for evil.
