“We are all going to die. Knowing one another is very precious. At the moment of death, the only thing that really matters is the condition of your heart.”
“The culture of comfort, which makes us think only of ourselves, makes us insensitive to the cries of other people, makes us live in soap bubbles which, however lovely, are insubstantial; they offer a fleeting and empty illusion which results in indifference to others; indeed, it even leads to the globalization of indifference. We have become used to the suffering of others.
— Pope Francis
I found the Legend app on my phone. 😀
Quote comes from my husband, Rafael.
“In practice, we should repent rather than have remorse. To repent is not to feel remorse, but to feel one’s faults, realizing they are faults, and try one’s best not to make the same mistake again.”
– From “How To Be Faultless” by Master Sheng Yen. Tricycle Magazine, Winter 2016
Really? Is it really that simple? I don’t have to beat myself up? I can just simply realize my mistake? And move on? Hmmm.
“I imagine that one of the reasons people cling to their hates so stubbornly is because they sense, once hate is gone, that they will be forced to deal with pain.”
– James Baldwin, Notes of a Native Son
