Title
"O Divine Master, Grant that I may not so much seek/To be consoled, as to console,/To be understood as to understand;/To be loved as to love./For it is in giving that we receive;/It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;/It is in dying that we are born to eternal life."--Saint Francis of Assisi. From the series Great Ideas of Western Man.
