“You will be educated, which means that you will be interested where others are bored, that you will notice unities where others experience randomness, and that you will intend meanings where others are just spouting words. For exactly that is supposed to be the result of becoming literate: The world becomes a thick texture of significance that you know how to “access.”--Eva Brann”
Eva Brann, The Past-Present: Selected Writings Of Eva Brann

“We save up the events of our days to tell our friends, feeling that until our affairs have been told they haven’t quite happened: Thus do our friends confirm our lives.”
Eva Brann, Open Secrets / Inward Prospects: Reflections on World and Soul

“Wonder is the sense, which comes in a flash but won’t go away, that things are not as straightforward as they seem, that the ordinary way, or explanation and argument leaves you with unbearable contradictions and impossibilities.”
Eva Brann, The Past-Present: Selected Writings Of Eva Brann
