Authentic quotation(s) for the week

There are three ways to ultimate success:

The first way is to be kind.

The second way is to be kind.

The third way is to be kind.

Fred Rogers (a.k.a. Mister Rogers), Life’s Journeys According to Mister Rogers: Things to Remember Along the Way. The Google Books version doesn’t show page numbers, but it’s there, and, since it’s an official project of his estate, I’m going to assume they know what they’re talking about.

Look at the heavens: how beautiful they are! And look at the Earth: how beautiful it is! Both Heaven and Earth radiate #beauty.

St. Augustine; it’s a somewhat free rendering of part of his Ennaration on Psalm 148. This is the Post-Nicene Fathers translation: “Regard the heavens, it [sic] is beautiful: observe the earth, it is beautiful: both together are very beautiful.”

I found another authentic Mother Teresa one, but I can’t remember what it was.
