I don’t own brass knuckles, but I’m pretty sure this is the next best thing.

I would rather focus on why I should love a person instead of hate them
I am asking God to give me the grace to become a woman who focuses on others’ virtues instead of their faults, especially when encountering extremely difficult people, because every human being is made in the image and likeness of God, and every person is loved by God. And if I can love the most difficult of people, then according to St. Augustine, I am purifying my eye for seeing God.

You were made to shine like a diamond, and have the power to impact every room you walk into (one way or the other).

“O Trinity, Essence above all essence, and Deity above all deity, supremely best guardian of the divine wisdom of Christians, direct us to the supremely unknown, superluminous, and most sublime height of mystical knowledge. There new mysteries – absolute and changeless mysteries of theology – are shrouded in the superluminous darkness of a silence, teaching secretly in the utmost obscurity that is manifest above all manifestation; of a darkness that is resplendent above all splendor, and in which everything shines forth; of a darkness which fills invisible intellects full above all plenitude with the splendors of invisible good things that are above all good.”
Through Jesus Christ our Lord who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Ghost, one God, forever and ever.
St. Bonaventure, Itinerarium mentis in Deum, with an introduction, translation, and commentary by Philotheus Boehner (St. Bonaventure, New York: The Franciscan Institute, 1956), VII.5, 98-99; from The Mystical Theology of Dionysius, I,1.

I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature. My attachments are always excessively strong.

When you undervalue who you are, the world will undervalue what you do and vice versa.
Suze Orman (via urbannativegirl)
The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These people have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness and a deep, loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.

…in order to empty ourselves of self, we must die daily to ourselves. This involves our renouncing what the powers of the soul and the senses of the body incline us to do. We must see as if we did not see, hear as if we did not hear and use the things of this world as if we did not use them…If we do not die to self and if our holiest devotions do not lead us to this necessary and fruitful death, we shall not bear fruit of any worth and our devotions will cease to be profitable.
St. Louis de Montfort, True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin No. 81
The singular mission of the working woman is to fuse her feminine calling with her vocational calling and, by means of that fusion, to give a feminine quality to her vocational calling.
St. Edith Stein
