“Each time anyone comes into contact with us,
they must become different and better people
because of having met us.
We must radiate God’s love.
We must know that we have been created for greater things,
not just to be a number in the world,
not just to go for diplomas and degrees,
this work and that work.
We have been created in order to love and to be loved.
Love does not measure… it just gives.”—Mother Teresa
“Listen to the mustn’ts, child/ listen to the don’ts/ listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts/ but then listen to the never haves and listen close to me/ anything can happen, child/ anything can be.”— Shel Silverstein
