Wonder & Whimsy: love and education

A weekly curation of quotations I come across in my reading life (or on random condiment jars) — from the inspirational to the miscellaneous. Perhaps one inspires you or catches your fancy too…

The rule of charity…

“Charity is certainly greater than any rule. Moreover, all rules must lead to charity. Since she is a noble mistress, we must do whatever she commands. With renewed devotion, then , we must serve the poor, especially outcasts and beggars. They have been given to us as our masters and patrons.” – St. Vincent de Paul (from a sermon on his memorial day in the OOR)

Love alone…

“It is love alone that gives worth to all things.” – St. Teresa of Avila


“Education is a creative activity with persons as its only possible object — only a person can be educated, an animal can only be trained — and also one which uses entirely human material; all that is by nature present in the human being to be educated is material for the educators, material which their love must find and mould.” – Karol Wojtyla (Love & Responsibility)
