Bluets by Maggie Nelson
“It is easier, of course, to find dignity in one's solitude. Loneliness is solitude with a problem. Can blue solve the problem, or can it at least keep me company within it?—No, not exactly. It cannot love me that way; it has no arms. But sometimes I do feel its presence to be a sort of wink—Here you are again, it says, and so am I.”

The Ragamuffin Gospel by Brennan Manning
“Imagine that Jesus is calling you today. He extends a second invitation to accept His Father's love. And maybe you answer, "Oh, I know that. It's old hat."

And God answers, 'No, that's what you don't know. You don't know how much I love you. The moment you think you understand is the moment you do not understand. I am God, not man. You tell others about Me - your words are glib. My words are written in the blood of My only Son. The next time you preach about My love with such obnoxious familiarity, I may come and blow your whole prayer meeting apart.

Did you know that every time you tell Me you love Me, I say thank you?”

The Ragamuffin Gospel by Brennan Manning
“And Grace calls out, 'You are not just a disillusioned old man who may die soon, a middle-aged woman stuck in a job and desperately wanting to get out, a young person feeling the fire in the belly begin to grow cold. You may be insecure, inadequate, mistaken or potbellied. Death, panic, depression, and disillusionment may be near you. But you are not just that. You are accepted.' Never confuse your perception of yourself with the mystery that you really are accepted.”

Shūsaku Endō
“...but what grieved him most was his inability to love these people as Christ had loved them.”
shusaku endo, Silence

“Violence in the developing world is like grief in the developed world—it’s everywhere, but we just don’t see it.”
Gary A. Haugen, The Locust Effect: Why the End of Poverty Requires the End of Violence

Shūsaku Endō
“As for me, perhaps I am so fascinated by his face because the Scriptures make no mention of it...all it's details are left to my imagination.”
shusaku endo, Silence

Makoto Fujimura
“According to Flaubert, the artist inhabits his or her work as God does: present everywhere, but visible nowhere.”
Makoto Fujimura, Silence and Beauty: Hidden Faith Born of Suffering

Makoto Fujimura
“Where does this openness to the “other” come from in artists? Some may grow out of empathy earned because artists are themselves often exiled from a normative tribal identity. There is also training to extend that empathy. In art, we constantly train ourselves to inhabit or portray the “other.” Artists learn to be adaptable and blend into an environment while not belonging to it, which also requires learning to speak new tribal languages.”
Makoto Fujimura, Culture Care: Reconnecting with Beauty for our Common Life
