Quotes that agitate the heart, by Pope John II

Not a moment of despair! -- because despair means we have allowed ourselves to lose gain of full communion with God. Despair is not of God. God is not a god of despair; he is the God of hope.

Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song. --Pope John Paul II

Inspiration is good, but if it remains in the heart it hasn't reached what it teaches. Pope John Paul II taught us both: hope and movement.
