“ It's difficult to follow your dream. It's a tragedy not to.”

There is nothing more attractive than confidence, once you see your own beauty, so will everyone else.”

Think of Noah, the pope writes: “All it takes is one good person to restore hope” (No. 71).

Is Pope Francis’s Laudato Si (letter on environment) a return to the very things that we knew as children, ideas that Robert Fulghum put so well in his book All I Ever Needed to Know I Learned in Kindergarten!!??   Things like: 1 Share everything.  2 Play fair.  3 Don’t hit people.  4 Be kind.  5 Clean up your own mess.  6 Don’t take things that aren’t yours.  7 All things in moderation.  8 Make time for wonder.   9 Say you’re sorry when you hurt somebody.  10 And then remember the Dick-and-Jane books and the first word you learned—the biggest word of all - LOOK.
