Quotes from the book:

“The greatest source of repair and restoration was the solace of friends… to make conversation, to share a joke, to perform mutual acts of kindness, to read together well-written books, to disagree without animosity, to teach each other something or to learn from one another, to long with impatience for those absent, to welcome them with gladness on their arrival. These and other things come through the heart of those who love and are loved…”

“Wherever the human soul turns to other than to you, it is fixed in sorrows, even if it is fixed upon beautiful things external to you…”

“Let those transient things be the ground on which my soul praises you, but let it not become stuck in them… for the soul loves to be in them and take its repose among the objects of its love.”
