Christian Books O...: READ ONE BOOK AND REVIEW 33 261 Jan 12, 2019 01:28PM  
“The capacity to pay attention to an afflicted person is something very rare, very difficult; it is nearly a miracle. It is a miracle. Nearly all those who believe they have this capacity do not. Warmth, movements of the heart, and pity are not sufficient.”
Simone Weil, Waiting for God

“Every sin is an attempt to fly from emptiness. ”
Simone Weil

“Everything beautiful has a mark of eternity.”
Simone Weil, Lectures on Philosophy

“These woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.”
Robert Frost, Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

“Some days I dread writing dreadfully, but I do it anyway. I've discovered that sometimes writing badly can eventually lead to writing something better. Not writing at all leads to nothing.”
Anne Quindlen
