God

The best way of worshipping God is in allaying the distress of the times and improving the condition of mankind. -
Conscience is God’s deputy in the soul. - Thomas Adams
Love is a flame which burns in heaven and whose soft reflections radiate to us. Two worlds are opened, two lives given to it. It is by love that we double our being; it is by love that we approach God. - Louis-Aimé Martin
Thou canst not tell how rich a dowry sorrow gives the soul, how firm a faith and eagle sight of God. - Dean Alford, fully Clarence "Dean" Alford
Another good thing in the heart of God is to pause before speaking. - Amen-em-apt
Never to tire, never to grow cold; to be patient, sympathetic, tender; to look for the budding flower and the opening heart; to hope always; like God, to love always - this is duty. -
We come closest to God at our lowest moments. - Terry Anderson, fully Terry A. Anderson
Embellish the soul with simplicity, with prudence, and everything which is neither virtuous nor vicious. Love all men. Walk according to God; for, as a poet hath said, his laws govern all. - Marcus Aurelius, Marcus Aurelius Antoninus Augustus
It is impossible for any created good to constitute man’s happiness. For happiness is the perfect good, which quiets the appetite altogether since it would not be the last end if something yet remained to be desired. Now the object of the will, that is, of man’s appetite, is the universal good, just as the object of the intellect is the universal true. Hence it is evident that nothing can quiet man’s will except the universal good. This is to be found not in any creature, but in God alone, because every creature has goodness by participation. Therefore God alone can satisfy the will of man. -
Through every mortal sin which is contrary to God’s commandments, an obstacle is placed to the outpouring of charity, since from the very fact that a man chooses to prefer sin to God’s friendship, which requires that we should follow His will, it follows that the habit of charity is lost at once through one mortal sin. -
