Anne Sexton
“Love? Be it man. Be it woman.
It must be a wave you want to glide in on,
give your body to it, give your laugh to it,
give, when the gravelly sand takes you,
your tears to the land. To love another is something
like prayer and can't be planned, you just fall
into its arms because your belief undoes your disbelief.”
Anne Sexton, The Complete Poems

Francis Spufford
“God doesn't want your careful virtue, He wants your reckless generosity.”
Francis Spufford, Unapologetic: Why, Despite Everything, Christianity Can Still Make Surprising Emotional Sense

Iain S. Thomas
“And every day, the world will drag you by the hand, yelling, “This is important! And this is important! And this is important! You need to worry about this! And this! And this!” And each day, it’s up to you to yank your hand back, put it on your heart and say, “No. This is what’s important.”
Iain Thomas

Annie Dillard
“You've got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down.”
Annie Dillard

Barbara Brown Taylor
“Whoever you are, you are human. Wherever you are, you live in the world, which is just waiting for you to notice the holiness in it.”
Barbara Brown Taylor, An Altar in the World: A Geography of Faith
