Rose George

Governing a great nation is like cooking a small fish - too much handling will spoil it.
Lao Tzu

My choices, including those related to the day-to-day aspects of life, like the use of a modest car, are related to a spiritual discernment that responds to a need that arises from looking at things, at people and from reading the signs of the times. Discernment in the Lord guides me in my way of governing.
Pope Francis
