"When you judge someone, you don't define them, you define yourself."

"What we see in others is essentially a direct reflection of ourselves -- our projections, prejudices, insecurities. Anytime you judge someone, you reveal more about your own character than anything else."

"Bigotry and ignorance are the height of insecurity."

(Above directed to people who find it hard to see Christ in others...those who do not understand the multicultural aspect of Christianity...those who stereotype non-whites...those who don't embrace the belief that we all belong to one Body of Christ.) theheart Dove

Quotes from Padre Pio:

"If certain thoughts bother you, it is devil who causes you to worry, and not God, Who, being the spirit of peace, grants you tranquility."

"I understand that temptations seem to tarnish, rather than to purify the spirit; but let us hear what the saints have to say, and for that purpose it suffices to choose Saint Francis de Sales from among so many: 'Temptations are like soap, which, when spread over the clothes, seems to stain them, but in reality, purifies them'."

“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.”

Lex Orandi, lex credendi. As we pray, so we believe. I like to think of this as reverence in actions and words, increase faith and reverence in one's heart.

Or...from Wikipedia: Lex orandi, lex credendi (Latin loosely translatable as "the law of prayer is the law of belief") refers to the relationship between worship and belief, and is an ancient Christian principle which provided a measure for developing the ancient Christian creeds, the canon of scripture and other doctrinal matters based on the prayer texts of the Church, that is, the Church's liturgy.
