When love beckons to you, follow him, Though his ways are hard and steep. And when his wings enfold you yield to him, Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.
Today I love myself as I love my god: who could charge me with a sin today? I know only sins against my god but who knows my god?
The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.
