NOTHING TO GIVE


I have nothing to give to another; but I have a duty to open him to his own life, to allow him to be himself—infinitely richer and more beautiful than he could ever be if I tried to enrich and shape him only from the outside. All is within him because the source lies in his hearts of heart. But so many obstacles prevent it from surfacing! I must be the one to help it spring forth and smash the concrete around him, and in him. I must be the one to help him dig and search, and dig some more, to find the source. And from that source, life will spring. Michel Quoist, WITH OPEN HEART
