Anna Sewell
“It is good people who make good places.”
Anna Sewell, Black Beauty

“Why are...poor people more ready to share their goods than rich people? The answer is easy: The poor have little to lose; the rich have more to lose and they are more attached to their possessions. Poverty provides a deeper motivation for understanding your neighbors, welcoming others and attending to those who are suffering. I would go so far as to say that poverty helps you understand what happiness is, what serenity is in life.”
Piero Gheddo

Jarod Kintz
“I'd like to see a flag made not out of stars and stripes, but rather fingers and knuckles, so that it could really wave in the wind. It would be the most welcoming flag in all the world.”
Jarod Kintz, The Days of Yay are Here! Wake Me Up When They're Over.

Jean-Yves Leloup
“To be grounded in an attitude of compassion is to be capable of receiving and welcoming the suffering, which the other is giving us. This does not mean that we suffer for them, but that we offer them possibility of going beyond the separate self in which suffering is harbored. (59)”
Jean-Yves Leloup, Compassion and Meditation: The Spiritual Dynamic between Buddhism and Christianity

Tony Hawks
“The behaviour of the English people I had run into was making it very difficult to nail down a theory that the reason my trip so far had been such a bizarre success, was that Irish people were crazy. One Englishman had spent a morning on the telephone trying to organise a helicopter to take me out to an island, when a boat was leaving only a few yards away, and here was another, making a two-hour round trip for no reason other than to lend a helping hand. Two of the more eccentric pieces of behaviour hadn't been performed by the Irish, but by my fellow countrymen. However, both Andy and Tony had embraced wholeheartedly a love of the Irish way of living life.”
Tony Hawks, Round Ireland with a Fridge

“Hospitality is a prized virtue of monastic communities. Benedict's rule says: 'All guests who present themselves are to be welcomed as Christ, for he himself will say, "I was a stranger and you welcomed me."' Brother Alphonsus served as a doorkeeper in the seventeenth century at a Jesuit college in Majorca, Spain. Each time someone knocked at the door he would reply, 'I am coming, Lord!' This practice reminded him to treat each person with as much respect as if it were Jesus himself at the door.”
Ken Shigematsu, God in My Everything: How an Ancient Rhythm Helps Busy People Enjoy God

“People are willing to help you succeed but many are probably not sure whether you might feel insulted or might see it as genuine help, that's why we should always seek out for help when we're stuck,so as to make people feel welcomed to offer ideas.”
Aniekee Tochukwu

“See the openness of the ocean. Now feel that your mind is more open and welcoming than that.”

Amanda McCabe
“Maybe it was this place, this strange, ramshackle, warm-hearted place, that had given his wife that air of laughing, welcoming life. Because here she bloomed. With him she had faded and he had faded with her. Yet here she was, his Jane again.
His hope. And he had never, ever wanted to hope again.”
Amanda McCabe, The Runaway Countess

Bryant McGill
“Sometimes the pain is a startling breach that hobbles your entire soul; dreadful losses that rupture your perceived reality. Pain so visceral and unrelenting that even death itself can begin to look like a welcomed and kind benefactor.”
Bryant McGill, Simple Reminders: Inspiration for Living Your Best Life
