Quotes From "Let Us Dream: The Path to a Better Future"

"Now, more than ever, what is revealed is the fallacy of making individualism the organizing principle of society. What will be our new principle?
We need a movement of people who know we need each other, who have a sense of responsibility to others and to the world. We need to proclaim that being kind, having faith, and working for the common good are great life goals that need courage and vigor; while glib superficiality and the mockery of ethics have done us no good. The modern era, which has developed equality and liberty with such determination, now needs to focus on fraternity with the same drive and tenacity to confront the challenges ahead. Fraternity will enable freedom and equality to take its rightful place in the symphony."
"When a weak person receives a lot of praise, said (Saint) Gregory (the Great) he "does not so much delight to Become as to be Called blessed," and gradually, in seeking after applause, he "is severed from God by the same means by which it appeared to be commendable in God."
"For me it's clear: we must redesign the economy so that it can offer every person access to a dignified existence while protecting and regenerating the natural world."
