Simone Weil
“To die for God is not a proof of faith in God. To die for an unknown and repulsive convict who is a victim of injustice, that is a proof of faith in God.”
Simone Weil, The Simone Weil Reader

Simone Weil
“Justice. To be ever ready to admit that another person is something quite different from what we read when he is there (or when we think about him). Or rather, to read in him that he is certainly something different, perhaps something completely different from what we read in him.
Every being cries out silently to be read differently.”
Simone Weil, Gravity and Grace

Simone Weil
“Sin is not a distance, it is a turning of our gaze in the wrong direction.”
Simone Weil, Waiting for God

Simone Weil
“The love of our neighbor in all its fullness simply means being able to say, "What are you going through?”
Simone Weil

Simone Weil
“The sea is not less beautiful in our eyes because we know that sometimes ships are wrecked by it.”
Simone Weil, Waiting for God
