Quotes Michaela Liked

Madeleine L'Engle
“Maybe you have to know the darkness before you can appreciate the light.”
Madeleine L'Engle, A Ring of Endless Light

Madeleine L'Engle
“It's hard to let go anything we love. We live in a world which teaches us to clutch. But when we clutch we're left with a fistful of ashes.”
Madeleine L'Engle, A Ring of Endless Light

Madeleine L'Engle
“A great ring of pure & endless light
Dazzles the darkness in my heart
And breaks apart the dusky clouds of night.
The end of all is hinted in the start.

When we are born we bear the seeds of blight;
Around us life & death are torn apart,
Yet a great ring of pure and endless light
Dazzles the darkness in my heart.

It lights the world to my delight.
Infinity is present in each part.
A loving smile contains all art.
The motes of starlight spark & dart.
A grain of sand holds power & might.
Infinity is present in each part,
And a great ring of pure and endless light
Dazzles the darkness in my heart.”
Madeleine L'Engle, A Ring of Endless Light

7.0% "I just started this today, and I'm really looking forward to it. Like the other Austin books, this one wrestles with death and all the things we can't understand and perhaps never will. I loved "The Moon by Night" the second book in the series (these are all stand-alone) because in the end Vicky had to realize everything God does leads to something better, even if she couldn't see how."

25.0% "I love this book. It's really going beyond my original expectations for it. It surpasses The Moon by Night, while still dealing with the same subjects (Not understanding everything in God's plan, but living in joy with the life He's given you, looking at things from an Eternity perspective, all things work together for good even if we can't see it right away.)" 2 comments
