“What is a loving heart? A loving heart is sensitive to the whole of life, to all persons; a loving heart doesn’t harden itself to any person or thing.”

“That, ladies and gentleman, is faith! An openness to the truth, no matter the consequences, no matter where it leads you and when you don’t even know where it’s going to lead you. That’s faith. Not belief, but faith.”

Anthony de Mello in “Awareness”

“Agreement and disagreement have to do with words and concepts and theories. They don’t have anything to do with truth. Truth is never expressed in words. Truth is sighted suddenly, as a result of a certain attitude…an attitude of openness, of willingness to discover something new. I cannot describe the truth. No one can. All I can do is give you a description of your falsehoods so you can drop them.”
