I have not put these in any particular order. None of them are me, but I have left the credits off, so that you can see them all together, whether they came from a waiter at a restaurant, or the General Minister and President. There is truth and wisdom everywhere.
"Wings without weight is fantasy, Weight without wings is despair."
"Dialog is not the way to change the mind of the other. Dialog is the art of searching for the the truth in the point of view of the other."
"Sometimes tears are the only prayer we have left."
"We do many things well in the UCC, signage is not one of them."
"Don't hesitate to act!"
"UCC, when news cameras do find you, may they find you in the service of humanity."
"McDonald's doesn't tell you how many stores they have or how many employees they have, they tell you Billions and Billions served."
"Thank you for all the work you have done."
"I don't mean any disrespect, but what you said... That was cute."
"OMG it's ELLEN!"
"No, no it's not."
I am sure their will be more to come.
