“There is no surprise more magical than the surprise of being loved.”

“As knowledge increases, wonder deepens.”
Charles Morgan

“It is not by great acts but by small failures that freedom dies. The sense of justice dies slowly in a people.
They grow used to the unthinkable,
and sometimes they may look back and even wonder when things changed. They
will not find a day or a time or a place. Justice and liberty die quietly, because men first learn
to ignore injustice and then no longer recognize it.”
Charles Morgan
