Some people make you thirsty. When you spend time with them, you want to live better, too. If you told them that, they’d be surprised, because they don’t see themselves as great folks dispensing wisdom to the rest of us. They just live quiet lives, burning and bursting with love, and the rest of us get to drink in the hope.
“The more one loves God, the more one is content.” Francois Fenelon (b. 1651)
