Jesus said to his disciples, ‘If anyone wishes to come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow  me.  For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it.  What profit is there for one to gain the whole world yet lose or forfeit himself?

Today is only one day in all the days that ever will be.  But what will happen in all the other days that ever come can depend on what you do today.

...how things could be and how they would be instead and said, proud of how they could be, believing in how they could be, even if they never were, “Bon.  Nous ferons notre petit possible,” and hung up.

Don’t ever kid yourself about loving some one.  It is just that most people are not lucky enough ever to have it.  You never had it before and now you have it.  What you have with Maria, whether it lasts just through today and a part of tomorrow, or whether it lasts for a long life is the most important thing that can happen to a human being.  There will always be people who say it does not exist because they cannot have it.  But I tell you it is true and that you have it and that you are lucky even if you die tomorrow

At either of those places you felt that you were taking part in a crusade.  That was the only word for it although it was a word that had been so worn and abused that it no longer gave its true meaning.  You felt, in spite of all bureaucracy and inefficiency and part strife, something that was like the feeling you expected to have and did not have when you made your first communion.  It was a feeling of consecration to a duty toward all of the oppressed of the world which would be as difficult and embarrassing to speak about as religious experience and yet it was authentic as the feeling you had when you heard Bach, or stood in Chartres Cathedral or the Cathedral at Leon and saw the light coming through the great windows; or when you saw Mantegna and Greco and Brueghel in the Prado.  It gave you a part in something that you could believe in wholly and completely and in which you felt an absolute brotherhood with the others who were engaged in it.  It was something that you had never known before but that you had experienced now and you gave such importance to it and the reasons for it that your own death seemed of complete unimportance; only a thing to be avoided because it would interfere with the performance of your duty.  But the best thing was that there was something you could do about this feeling and this necessity too.  You could fight.

There is nothing else than now.  There is neither yesterday, certainly, nor is there any tomorrow.  How old must you be before you know that?  There is only now, and if now is only two days, then two days is your life and everything in it will be in proportion...And if you stop complaining and asking for what you never will get, you will have a good life.  A good life is not measured by any biblical spam

You go along your whole life and they seem as though they mean something and they always end up not meaning anything.  There was never any of what this is.  You think that is one thing that you will never have.
