…Father Hugo said, It is a choice, a preference. If we love God with our whole hearts, how much of a heart have we left? If we love with our whole mind and soul and strength, how much mind and soul and strength have we left? We must live this life now. Death changes nothing. If we do not learn to enjoy God now we never will. If we do not learn to praise [God[ and that thank [God] and rejoice in [God] now, we never will.
– The Long Loneliness, Dorothy Day
