” Credinta si ratiunea sunt ca doua aripi cu care spiritul uman se ridica spre contemplarea adevarului. Dumnezeu este cel care a pus in inima omului dorinta de a cunoaste adevarul si, in definitiv, de a-l cunoaste pe El pentru ca astfel, cunoscundu-l si iubindu-l, sa poata ajunge la adevarul intreg despre sine insusi.”
Papa Ioan al II-lea (Fides et ratio, 1; 14 septembrie 1998)
Faith and reason are like two wings on which the human spirit rises to the contemplation of truth;
and God has placed in the human heart a desire to know the truth—in a word, to know
himself—so that, by knowing and loving God, men and women may also come to the fullness of
truth about themselves.
“Splendoarea trandafirului si puritatea crinului nu pot rapi parfumul micutei violete, nici farmecul simplu al margaretei. Daca orice gingasa floare si-ar dori sa fie un trandafir, primavara si-ar pierde frumusetea.”
Therese de Lisieux
“The splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not rob the little violet of its scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness.”
“As a woman I have no country. As a woman I want no country. As a woman, my country is the whole world.”
― Virginia Woolf
“Sometimes I wonder if men and women really suit each other. Perhaps they should live next door and just visit now and then.”
― Katharine Hepburn
“The most beautiful makeup of a woman is passion. But cosmetics are easier to buy.”
― Yves Saint Laurent
“Why does a woman work ten years to change a man, then complain he’s not the man she married?”
― Barbra Streisand
Set wide the window. Let me drink the day.
Still strong. This little plant stands green and strong against all adversities. So I hope that we, humans can do the same. My thoughts and prayers are with those who lost someone dear and cannot be close to say farewell. Also with whole families from villages who left behind their livestock because each member is hospitalized due to pandemic.
“I must be taken as I have been made. The success is not mine, the failure is not mine, but the two together make me.”
Charles Dickens, Great Expectations
