Citatul zilei

“Un popor, ca si un copac si ca oricare alta fiinta organica, nu poate inainta decat din sine insusi, decat dezvoltandu-si treptat aptitudinile si puterile sale innascute.”

Mihai Eminescu

Autumn’s reflection

You expected to be sad in the fall. Part of you died each year when the leaves fell from the trees and their branches were bare against the wind and the cold, wintery light. But you knew there would always be the spring, as you knew the river would flow again after it was frozen. When the cold rains kept on and killed the spring, it was as though a young person died for no reason.

Ernest Hemingway

Admiration

“A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms.”. – Zen Shin.

“Every flower must grow through dirt.”– Laurie Jean Sennott

“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.”. – Audrey Hepburn.

“Open the bloom of your heart and become a gift of beauty to the world.”– Bryant McGill

Lacramioara

“Do not grieve over temptations you suffer. When the Lord intends to bestow a particular virtue on us, He often permits us first to be tempted by the opposite vice. Therefore, look upon every temptation as an invitation to grown in a particular virtue and a promise by God that you will be successful, if only you stand fast.”
― St. Philip Neri

Doua aripi

” 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.
