An absence of mercenary interest, of a certain curiosity and relishing of another person’s experiences, should be combined in the first place with a strenuous goodwill, with a sort of genuine tirelessness. ...We must have the strength not to define generally what a given person should or should not do but to define him for his own inner state… it is dangerous to approach a person with the yardstick of all-measuring doctrine and begin to dissect his living…” Maria Skobtsova

Our human nature is constantly struggling to recognize within and without ourselves the good, the true and the beautiful.
