Quote of the day

"There are four great lamps of thanksgiving burning before me.

"The first: that I was born out of the same earth as you.

"Two, I have tried to love everything in the universe as a remote preparation for loving you.

"Three, I have never run after strange women. You cannot understand how much this prepares a man for true love.

"Four, my life ends here. It has led me to you."

— G.K. Chesterton writing to his future wife, Frances Blogg, according to Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen. The archbishop quoted the above lines in "Three Kinds of Love," one of the talks on his "Family Retreat" DVD.
