A Nice Poem

To love
is not to give of your riches
but to reveal to others
their riches, their gifts, their value,
and to trust their capacity to grow.

So it is important to approach people
in their brokenness or littleness
gently..... so gently
not forcing yourself on them
but accepting them as they are,
with humility and respect

by Jean Vanier
