Zitate Théodore Guérin

„Let us never forget that if we wish to die like the Saints we must live like them.“

—  Théodore Guérin
Context: Let us never forget that if we wish to die like the Saints we must live like them. Let us force ourselves to imitate their virtues, in particular humility and charity. Letter to Sisters at Saint Mary's, 1848.

„Happy, ah, thrice happy they who can then look out to the never-ending future with calm and confidence,“

—  Théodore Guérin
First Journal of Travel (1840), Context: Nothing troubled the charm and silence of this solitude. Making the most serious reflections on what we behold, and on our present position, I said to myself: Thus does life also pass away, now calm, now agitated, but at last the end is attained. Happy, ah, thrice happy they who can then look out to the never-ending future with calm and confidence, who can cast themselves on the bosom of God, the Center of our felicity.

„At each step we can admire the grandeur, the power, the goodness of God. How bountifully He provides for all our wants -- I would even say for our pleasures!“

—  Théodore Guérin
Context: We have gone out several times this summer to gather simples and linden blossoms, etc. In each excursion we discover something marvelous, beautiful, and useful in the magnificent forests of Indiana. At each step we can admire the grandeur, the power, the goodness of God. How bountifully He provides for all our wants -- I would even say for our pleasures! I love our woods and solitude very much; … To the Right Reverend J. Bouvier, Bishop of Le Mans, Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, 1850-07-10.

„Have confidence in the Providence that so far has never failed us. The way is not yet clear. Grope along slowly.“

—  Théodore Guérin
Context: You may have to wait longer than you would like, you may have to bear privations; but, bear and forebear. Have confidence in the Providence that so far has never failed us. The way is not yet clear. Grope along slowly. Do not press matters; be patient, be trustful. Letter to the Sisters at Jasper 1842-03-20.

„…the Americans must have the Almighty dollar.“

—  Théodore Guérin
Their cupidity renders them daring and indifferent to everything else. It is nothing to them to expose their lives and those of others in order to gain money. How materialistic these people are! To the Right Reverend J. Bouvier, Bishop of Le Mans, Saint Mary's, 1849-07-08.

„I loved to consider the care of God's Providence which extends even to the little fishes.“

—  Théodore Guérin
Third Journal of Travel (1844-1845), Context: Every evening at the same hour when the weather was calm, I used to go on deck and bless God for all the wonders of His creation. I loved to consider the care of God's Providence which extends even to the little fishes.

„The beauty of the forests of Indiana in the rich and lovely month of May surpasses all description.“

—  Théodore Guérin
Third Journal of Travel (1844-1845), Context: The beauty of the forests of Indiana in the rich and lovely month of May surpasses all description. The rivers, swollen by the rains, flow through long lanes of verdure, caressing the islands they seem to carry with them in their course and which look like floating nosegays. The trees raise their straight trunks to the height of more than a hundred and twenty feet and are crowned with tops of admirable beauty. The magnolia, the dog-wood, the catalpa, covered with white flowers, the permed snow of the springtime, intermingle with the delicate green of the other trees.

„Woman in this country is only yet one fourth of the family. I hope that, through the influence of religion and education, she will eventually become at least one half the "better half."“

—  Théodore Guérin
Context: ... they wish to make us pay taxes, which is contrary to the laws of the State. We refuse positively. It embarrasses them a little to have women resist them and speak to them about the law. Woman in this country is only yet one fourth of the family. I hope that, through the influence of religion and education, she will eventually become at least one half the "better half." To Mother Mary, Superior General, Ruille-sur-Loir, 1852-02-18.

„No piano, no pupils! Such is the spirit of this country -- Music and Steam!“

—  Théodore Guérin
First Journal of Travel (1840), Context: They [Sisters of Charity in Frederick] excel in music, which is an indispensable thing in this country, even for the poor. No piano, no pupils! Such is the spirit of this country -- Music and Steam!

„Sometimes I am so disheartened with this country that I feel as if I were carrying on my shoulders the weight of its highest mountains, and in my heart all the thorns of its wilderness.“

—  Théodore Guérin
Context: I must close now, for I am obliged to go to Terre Haute, where I am called to court to explain my conduct and defend myself against accusations relative to counterfeit money that was said to have been received from me. One has to come to America to be treated thus! Sometimes I am so disheartened with this country that I feel as if I were carrying on my shoulders the weight of its highest mountains, and in my heart all the thorns of its wilderness. Pray for me occasionally that I may not lose courage; nay, more, that I may be brave enough to hold up others who falter sometimes. Letter to the Very Reverend A. Martin, Vincennes, 1844-10-03.
