Where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance.
Where there is patience and humility, there is neither anger nor vexation.
Where there is poverty and joy, there is neither greed nor avarice.
Where there is peace and meditation, there is neither anxiety nor doubt.
– St. Francis of Assisi
I want a charitable home because charity is the highest form of love.
I want a wise home because wisdom is the perfect blend of knowledge and action.
I want a patient home because patience is quiet, steady perseverance.
I want a humble home because humility preserves the soul.
I want a poor home because a poverty of things does not require a poverty of spirit.
I want a joyful home because joy is the outward expression of a deeply rooted contentment.
I want a peaceful home because peace requires active mediation.
I want a meditative home because meditation requires passive contemplation.
