"On the day of our Judgment, our Lord will reproach us our little love for Him. You loved Me less than creatures. You did not seek the happiness of your life in Me. You loved Me enough not to offend Me mortally, but not enough to live of Me!

Some say: "But all this is exaggeration!"

Love is nothing but exaggeration; to exaggerate is to go beyond the strict requirements of the law. Love must exaggerate. 

Come! Let us be all taken up with our Lord! Let us love Him a little for His own sake. Let us forget ourselves and give ourselves to this good Savior! Let us sacrifice ourselves a bit! Look at the candles and the sanctuary lamp, which burn without leaving any trace, without reserving anything for themselves."

 Saint Peter Julian Eymard
