Is not enough if not supported by love and faith

April 4th 2011
However much you dazzle people with your knowledge, it won’t be enough to change them. Of course, knowledge is a powerful tool: it enlightens the mind and provides good arguments, but that is all. However much people are informed, however much they have understood, it doesn’t mean they will budge. To bring them round, you must communicate your conviction and your love. For faith and love are enlivening, stimulating; they are living forces. When confronted with life’s difficulties, those who have only knowledge remain weak, fearful and unsteady. Whereas, those who love, who are full of conviction and enthusiasm, even if they have little knowledge, will keep going, overcome obstacles and carry others along with them.
