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

Tomas Tranströmer
“But every person has their own encyclopedia written, which grows out from each soul, composed from birth onward, hundreds of thousands of pages pressing into each other and yet there’s air between them! Like trembling leaves in a forest. A book of contradictions. What’s in there is revised by the moment; the images touch themselves up, the words flicker. A wave washes through the entire text, followed by the next wave, and the next . . .”
Tomas Tranströmer, The Great Enigma: New Collected Poems

Martin Buber
“is even worse than fear for oneself. The shadows of madness became longer as the day progressed, and even though it was certain that crime could have no permanence, it was unfortunately uncertain how long and how far God would permit this trial to go, for I am sorry to say that in history there are many examples of extended periods of darkness.”
Martin Buber, The Letters of Martin Buber

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

Richard Rohr
“So Jesus pulls no punches, saying you must “hate” your home base in some way and make choices beyond it.”
Richard Rohr, AARP Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life
