Simone Weil
“Attachment is the great fabricator of illusions; reality can be obtained only by someone who is detached. ”
Simone Weil

Simone Weil
“Human beings are so made that the ones who do the crushing feel nothing; it is the person crushed who feels what is happening. Unless one has placed oneself on the side of the oppressed, to feel with them, one cannot understand.”
Simone Weil, Lectures on Philosophy

Simone Weil
“Justice. To be ever ready to admit that another person is something quite different from what we read when he is there (or when we think about him). Or rather, to read in him that he is certainly something different, perhaps something completely different from what we read in him.
Every being cries out silently to be read differently.”
Simone Weil, Gravity and Grace

Simone Weil
“The world is the closed door. It is a barrier. And at the same time it is the way through.

Two prisoners whose cells adjoin communicate with each other by knocking on the wall. The wall is the thing which separates them but it is also their means of communication. … Every separation is a link.”
Simone Weil, Gravity and Grace

Simone Weil
“In struggling against anguish one never produces serenity; the struggle against anguish only produces new forms of anguish.


Simone Weil
