Throughout Dorothy's life leading the Catholic Worker there were three quotations she repeated over and over, over and over. The first was from Peter Maurin, her co-founder of The Catholic Worker. The second was from St. John of the Cross. The third was from Father John Hugo. You might say that these three quotes formed the credo of Dorothy Day:
"To make the kind of society where it is easier to be good."
"Where there is no love, put love, and you will find love."
"You love God as much as the one you love the least."
