“The very fact that bad things are newsworthy is the most telling evidence of the fundamental goodness of our world.”
“It is difficult to talk about the common good when we lose the ability to speak about duty, obligation and restraint, and find ourselves only with desires clamouring for satisfaction.”
“The good we do does live after us, and it is by far the most important thing that does”
“The greatest gift is to be able to give, and the life we lead is measured by the good we do.”
“If we were able to see how evil today leads to good tomorrow – if we were able to see from the point of view of God, creator of all – we would understand justice but at the cost of ceasing to be human.”
“However dark the world, love still heals. Goodness still redeems.”
