Affection is responsible for nine-tenths of whatever solid and durable happiness there is in our lives. - C. S. Lewis
Affection is responsible for nine-tenths of whatever solid and durable happiness there is in our lives.
C. S. Lewis

Shadow is the obstruction of light.

Leonardo da Vinci

Humility is the solid foundation of all virtues.
Confucius

A mission statement is not something you write overnight... But fundamentally, your mission statement becomes your constitution, the solid expression of your vision and values. It becomes the criterion by which you measure everything else in your life.
Stephen Covey

Above all, remember that God looks for solid virtues in us, such as patience, humility, obedience, abnegation of your own will - that is, the good will to serve Him and our neighbor in Him. His providence allows us other devotions only insofar as He sees that they are useful to us.
Saint Ignatius
