Saint Marie-Eugenie de Jesus
In all affairs it's a healthy thing now and then to hang a question mark on the things you have long taken for granted.
Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together, but do so with all your heart.
What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.
TEACHING BY EXAMPLE
It is not so much the example of others we imitate as the reflection of ourselves in their eyes and the echo of ourselves in their words.
This was a splendid life. Splendid in its obscurity and humility, splendid in its strength and charity, splendid in its achievements.
Robert C. Mortimer
...all true fame...is to be acquired only by noble deeds and high achievements and the establishment of a character founded upon the principles of truth, uprightness, and inflexible integrity.
Alexander H. Stephens
Nothing is more deceitful than the appearance of humility. It is often only carelessness of opinion, and sometimes an indirect boast.
