Book cover for The Starless Sea
Anyone who enters the room affects it. Leaves an impression upon it even if it is unintentional. Quietly opening the door lets a soft draft rustle over the objects inside. A tree might topple. A doll might lose its hat. An entire building ...more
J.R.R. Tolkien
“We have come from God, and inevitably the myths woven by us, though they contain error, will also reflect a splintered fragment of the true light, the eternal truth that is with God. Indeed only by myth-making, only by becoming 'sub-creator' and inventing stories, can Man aspire to the state of perfection that he knew before the Fall. Our myths may be misguided, but they steer however shakily towards the true harbour, while materialistic 'progress' leads only to a yawning abyss and the Iron Crown of the power of evil.”
J.R.R. Tolkien

George Orwell
“Nationalism is power-hunger tempered by self-deception.”
George Orwell, 1984 (Nineteen Eighty-Four), Animal Farm, and over 40 Other Works by George Orwell

Nadia Bolz-Weber
“Good Friday is not about us trying to "get right with God." It is about us entering the difference between God and humanity and just touching it for a moment. Touching the shimmering sadness of humanity's insistence that we can be our own gods, that we can be pure and all-powerful.”
Nadia Bolz-Weber, Accidental Saints: Finding God in All the Wrong People

C.S. Lewis

C.S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain

Virginia Woolf
“One wanted fifty pairs of eyes to see with, she reflected. Fifty pairs of eyes were not enough to get round that one woman with, she thought.”
Virginia Woolf, To the Lighthouse
