Just as one candle lights another and can light thousands of other candles, so one heart illuminates another heart and can illuminate thousands of other hearts.
Beware of those who want to convince you that it is impossible to strive for good just because it is impossible to reach perfection.
— John Ruskin
Good books are a good influence. Good art is a good influence. Prayer is an influence as well. But the strongest influence is a good life. A good life becomes a blessing for people, not only for those who live good lives but those who can see, know, and understand such lives.
It is difficult to bring people to goodness with lessons, but it is easy to do so by example.
— Lucius Annaeus Seneca
Beware of groups of people who are harmful for your soul. Try to avoid them. You should praise good company and seek it.
