It is possible to travel alone, but we know the journey is human life and life needs company.
Companion is the one who eats the same bread.

Dom Helder Camara

Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in 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 morning,
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.
