‘Growing to a Maturity of Heart’

‘It takes time to grow to a maturity of the heart. Little by little, as we live and work with others, especially if we are well-guided, we learn to break out of the shell of selfishness and self-centredness where we seek to be brilliant and to prove our goodness, wisdom and power. We receive and give the knocks of life. We all have to discover that there are others like us who have gifts and needs; no one of us is the centre of the world. We are a small but important part in our universe. We all have a part to play. We need one another.’

– Jean Vanier, Becoming Human, pp. 58-59
