The truth – that love is the ultimate and highest goal to which man can aspire.*
I came to realise that the object of life is not prosperity as we are made to believe, but the maturity of the human soul.**
Have you noticed that when we care about someone or something, the world grows larger; more wonderful people, more detail, more colour, more possibilities.
And the larger the world grows through our caring, the more we grow.
May you grow very large indeed.
