„Holiness is not the luxury of the few; it is a simply duty“

—  Matka Tereza Roman Catholic saint of Albanian origin 1910 - 1997
Context: Holiness is not the luxury of the few; it is a simply duty, for you and for me, because Jesus has very clearly stated, "Be ye holy as my father in heaven is holy." So let us pray for each other that we grow in love for each other, and through this love become holy as Jesus wants us to be for he died out of love for us. One day I met a lady who was dying of cancer in a most terrible condition. And I told her, I say, "You know, this terrible pain is only the kiss of Jesus — a sign that you have come so close to Jesus on the cross that he can kiss you." And she joined her hands together and said, "Mother Teresa, please tell Jesus to stop kissing me". Address to the National Prayer Breakfast (3 February 1994) http://www.ewtn.com/New_library/breakfast.htm. Unsourced variant or paraphrase: I think it is very good when people suffer. To me, that is like the kiss of Jesus.

„Roses just now predominate. There is a satisfying solidity about the bunches, a glorious abundance which, in a commodity so easily enjoyed without ownership, is scarcely credible.“

—  William McFee American writer 1881 - 1966
Context: Roses just now predominate. There is a satisfying solidity about the bunches, a glorious abundance which, in a commodity so easily enjoyed without ownership, is scarcely credible. I feel no desire to own these huge aggregations of odorous beauty. It would be like owning a harem, one imagines.
