Nothing is more practical

"Nothing is more practical than finding God, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagaination, will affect everything.

It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evening, how you spend your weekends, what you read, whom you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joyand gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything."

--Fr. Pedro Arrupe, S.J.
General of the Society of Jesus

Quoted in Everything Belongs by Richard Rohr, p. 122
