Simone Weil
“When water is set in motion by a violent, impetuous current, it ceases to reflect images. Its surface is no longer level; it can no more measure densities. Whether it is moved by a single current or by several conflicting ones, the disturbance is the same.”
Simone Weil, On the Abolition of All Political Parties

Simone Weil
“Yes, we are dreaming. Men of action and enterprise are dreamers; they prefer dream to reality. But they use arms to make others dream their dreams. The victor lives his dream; the vanquished lives another's dream.”
Simone Weil, Venezia salva

C.S. Lewis
“Have courage, dear heart, for there is nothing to be afraid of and never has been.”
C.S Lewis, The Weight of Glory

Simone Weil

Simone Weil
“To love purely is to consent to distance.”
