Michel de Montaigne
“On the highest throne in the world, we still sit only on our own bottom.”
Michel de Montaigne, The Complete Essays

Lloyd Alexander
“Fantasy is hardly an escape from reality. It's a way of understanding it.”
Lloyd Alexander

Hans Urs von Balthasar
“We no longer dare to believe in beauty and we make of it a mere appearance in order the more easily to dispose of it. Our situation today shows that beauty demands for itself at least as much courage and decision as do truth and goodness, and she will not allow herself to be separated and banned from her two sisters without taking them along with herself in an act of mysterious vengeance. We can be sure that whoever sneers at her name as if she were the ornament of a bourgeois past -- whether he admits it or not -- can no longer pray and soon will no longer be able to love.”
Hans Urs von Balthasar, Seeing the Form

Alexander Schmemann
“For one who thinks food in itself is the source of life, eating is the communion with the dying world, it is communion with death. Food itself is dead, it is life that has died and it must be kept in refrigerators like a corpse.”
Alexander Schmemann, For the Life of the World: Sacraments and Orthodoxy

Alexander Schmemann
“Centuries of secularism have failed to transform eating into something strictly utilitarian. Food is still treated with reverence...To eat is still something more than to maintain bodily functions. People may not understand what that 'something more' is, but they nonetheless desire to celebrate it. They are still hungry and thirsty for sacramental life.”
Alexander Schmemann, For the Life of the World: Sacraments and Orthodoxy
