Do You Want To Change The World? Start Here:

“The greatest challenge of the day is: how to bring about a revolution of the heart, a revolution which has to start with each one of us?” – Dorothy Day

“Nothing ever happens in the world that does not happen first inside human hearts” – Venerable Fulton J. Sheen

“A human person is not solely an individual entity, not solely a private reality. Along with having autonomy, each human being exists in relation to other people” – Romano Guardini

“The world would become better off if people tried to become better. And people would become better if they stopped trying to become better off” – Peter Maurin

“To me, it really seems visible today that ethics is not something exterior to the economy, which, as technical matter, could function on its own; rather, ethics is an interior principle of the economy itself, which cannot function if it does not take account of the human values of solidarity and reciprocal responsibility” – Pope Emeritus, Benedict XVI

“You cannot un-educate the person who has learned to read. You cannot humiliate the person who feels pride. And you cannot oppress the people who are not afraid anymore” – Cesar Chavez

“Nothing is more practical than finding God. That is, than falling in a love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the mornings, what you will do with your evenings, how you spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything” – Pedro Arrupe, S.J.

So yes, you can change the world.

You can start with yourself.

You can choose love.

Peace
