Text Quotes
The purpose of leadership is not to make the present bearable. The purpose of leadership is to make the future possible  (Joan D Chittister Quotes) There is always new life trying to emerge in each of us. Too often we ignore the signs of resurrection and cling to part of life that have died for us  (Joan D Chittister Quotes) Hospitality is the key to new ideas, new friends, new possibilities. What we take into our lives changes us. Without new people and new ideas, we are imprisoned inside ourselves  (Joan D Chittister Quotes) We need a much broader conversation on what the morality of pro-life is  (Joan D Chittister Quotes) Try saying this silently to everyone and everything you see for thirty days and see what happens to your own soul: I wish you happiness now and whatever will bring happiness to you in the future  (Joan D Chittister Quotes) When souls really touch, it is forever. Then space and time disappear, and all that remains is the consciousness that we are not alone in life  (Joan D Chittister Quotes) Too many times we insist on loving people the way we want to love them instead of the way they need to be loved  (Joan D Chittister Quotes) A life of value is not a series of great things well done; it is a series of small things consciously done  (Joan D Chittister Quotes) Prophets are so dangerous because they cry in season and out of season, politely and impolitely, loud and long  (Joan D Chittister Quotes) June is the time for being in the world in new ways, for throwing off the cold and dark spots of life  (Joan D Chittister Quotes) Indifference is the acid of life. It erodes all the spirit that’s in us and makes us useless to anyone else. We all have to stand for something, or our souls cease to breathe  (Joan D Chittister Quotes) Life is an exercise in the development of feeling. When we repress feelings, we become sour and judgmental. When we live awash in great feeling over small things, we become jaded long before we have even begun to enjoy. When feelings are in balance they sweeten long days and great distances with gratitude and hope  (Joan D Chittister Quotes) Faith isn’t faith until it’s all we have to hold on to and knowledge fails us. When we pray for faith, we automatically pray for darkness. Think about it  (Joan D Chittister Quotes) Awareness of the sacred in life is what holds our world together, and the lack of awareness of the sacred is what is tearing it apart  (Joan D Chittister Quotes) Grief is a sign that we loved something more than ourselves.... Grief makes us worthy to suffer with the rest of the world  (Joan D Chittister Quotes) Work is not slavery, then. Work is creativity. It is the expression of ourselves that no one else can duplicate  (Joan D Chittister Quotes) Every dimension of life, its gains and its losses, are reason for celebration because each of them brings us closer to wisdom and fullness of understanding  (Joan D Chittister Quotes) Solitude is not a way of running away from life... from our feelings. On the contrary. This is the time we sort them out, air them, get over them, and go on without the burden of yesterday  (Joan D Chittister Quotes) Memory is not about what went on in the past, it is about what is going on inside us right this moment.? It is made up of the stuff of life in the process of becoming the grist of the soul  (Joan D Chittister Quotes) Life is not meant to be a burden. Life is not a problem to be solved. It is a blessing to be celebrated  (Joan D Chittister Quotes) It’s the beauty within us that makes it possible for us to recognize the beauty around us  (Joan D Chittister Quotes) Try saying this silently to everyone and everything you see for thirty days and see what happens to your own soul: I wish you happiness now and whatever will bring happiness to you in the future.  (Joan D Chittister Quotes) A life of value is not a series of great things well done; it is a series of small things consciously done.  (Joan D Chittister Quotes) In Benedictine spirituality, work is what we do to continue what God wanted done....God goes on creating through us. Consequently a life spent serving God must be a life spent giving to others what we have been given.  (Joan D Chittister Quotes) Failure is the foundation of truth. It teaches us what isn’t true, and that is a great beginning. To fear failure is to fear the possibility of truth.  (Joan D Chittister Quotes) Benedictine spirituality is a consistent one: live life normally, live life thouhtfully, live life profouncly, live life well. Never neglect and never exaggerate. It is a lesson that a world full of cults and fads and workaholics and short courses in difficult subjects needs dearly to learn.  (Joan D Chittister Quotes) June is the time for being in the world in new ways, for throwing off the cold and dark spots of life.  (Joan D Chittister Quotes) To be contemplative we must become converted to the consciousness that makes us one with the universe, in tune with the cosmic voice of God.  (Joan D Chittister Quotes) A hard heart makes for hard judgments; a compassionate heart understands the humanity of the one we presume to judge.  (Joan D Chittister Quotes) Every dimension of life, its gains and its losses, are reason for celebration because each of them brings us closer to wisdom and fullness of understanding.  (Joan D Chittister Quotes)
