Text Quotes
We don’t know what to do with our own pain, so what to do with the pain of others? We don’t know what to do with our own weakness except hide it or pretend it doesn’t exist. So how can we welcome fully the weakness of another if we haven’t welcomed our own weakness?  (Jean Vanier Quotes) The cry for love and communion and for recognition that rises from the hearts of people in need reveals the fountain of love in us and our capacity to give life  (Jean Vanier Quotes) Love is to recognize that the other person is a person, is precious, is important and has value  (Jean Vanier Quotes) A community that is growing rich and seeks only to defend its goods and its reputation is dying. It has ceased to grow in love. A community is alive when it is poor and its members feel they have to work together and remain united, if only to ensure that they can all eat tomorrow!  (Jean Vanier Quotes) It is my belief that in our mad world where there is so much pain, rivalry, hatred, violence, inequality, and oppression, it is people who are weak, rejected, marginalized, counted as useless, who can become a source of life and of salvation for us as individuals as well as for our world. And it is my hope that each one of you may experience the incredible gift of the friendship of people who are poor and weak, that you too, may receive life from them. For they call us to love, to communion, to compassion and to community  (Jean Vanier Quotes) We all know well that we can do things for others and in the process crush them, making them feel that they are incapable of doing things by themselves. To love someone is to reveal to them their capacities for life, the light that is shining in them  (Jean Vanier Quotes) I am struck by how sharing our weakness and difficulties is more nourishing to others than sharing our qualities and successes  (Jean Vanier Quotes) Look at your own poverty welcome it cherish it don’t be afraid share your death because thus you will share your love and your life  (Jean Vanier Quotes) We discover that we are at the same time very insignificant and very important, because each of our actions is preparing the humanity of tomorrow; it is a tiny contribution to the construction of the huge and glorious final humanity  (Jean Vanier Quotes) A growing community must integrate three elements: a life of silent prayer, a life of service and above all of listening to the poor, and a community life through which all its members can grow in their own gift  (Jean Vanier Quotes) If we are to grow in love, the prisons of our egoism must be unlocked. This implies suffering, constant effort and repeated choices  (Jean Vanier Quotes) People cannot accept their own evil if they do not at the same time feel loved, respected and trusted  (Jean Vanier Quotes) All of us have a secret desire to be seen as saints, heroes, martyrs. We are afraid to be children, to be ourselves  (Jean Vanier Quotes) This evolution towards a real responsibility for others is sometimes blocked by fear. It is easier to stay on the level of a pleasant way of life in which we keep our freedom and our distance. But that means that we stop growing and shut ourselves up in our own small concerns and pleasures  (Jean Vanier Quotes) I have discovered the value of psychology and psychiatry, that their teachings can undo knots in us and permit life to flow again and aid us in becoming more truly human  (Jean Vanier Quotes) When children are loved, they live off trust; their bides and hearts open up to those who respect and love them, who understand and listen to them  (Jean Vanier Quotes) To be lonely is to feel unwanted and unloved, and therefor unloveable. Loneliness is a taste of death. No wonder some people who are desperately lonely lose themselves in mental illness or violence to forget the inner pain  (Jean Vanier Quotes) Life is a succession of crises and moments when we have to rediscover who we are and what we really want  (Jean Vanier Quotes) Envy comes from people’s ignorance of, or lack of belief in, their own gifts  (Jean Vanier Quotes) Many people are good at talking about what they are doing, but in fact do little. Others do a lot but don’t talk about it; they are the ones who make a community live  (Jean Vanier Quotes) One of the marvelous things about community is that it enables us to welcome and help people in a way we couldn’t as individuals  (Jean Vanier Quotes) In any case, community is not about perfect people. It is about people who are bonded to each other, each of whom is a mixture of good and bad, darkness and light, love and hate  (Jean Vanier Quotes) Stop looking for peace. Give yourselves where you are. Stop looking at yourselves, look instead at your brothers and sisters in need. Ask how you can better love your brothers and sisters. Then you will find peace  (Jean Vanier Quotes) Those we most often exclude from the normal life of society, people with disabilities, have profound lessons to teach us  (Jean Vanier Quotes) So we need places, laboratories, the creation of places which could be each one of our homes, where we invite people who are different, and we listen to each other, people of different class groups  (Jean Vanier Quotes) When we judge, we are pushing people away; we are creating a wall, a barrier. When we forgive we are destroying barriers, we come closer to others  (Jean Vanier Quotes) We can be seduced... by powerful political groups that promise more wealth and lower taxes. Those with power can use clever, psychological tricks and play upon our weaknesses and brokenness in order to attract us to their way of thinking. We can be manipulated into illusion  (Jean Vanier Quotes) When we love and respect people, revealing to them their value, they can begin to come out from behind the walls that protect them  (Jean Vanier Quotes) True peace can rarely be imposed from the outside; it must be born within and between communities through meetings and dialogue and then carried outward  (Jean Vanier Quotes) It is only when we stand up, with all our failings and sufferings, and try to support others rather than withdraw into ourselves, that we can fully live the life of community  (Jean Vanier Quotes)
