night cap

I leave you with a few quotes, from my recent readings. They have been occupying my thoughts, even when I am not able to be thoughtful, like just about right now.

"We ought to see far enough into a hypocrite to see even his sincerity." - G. K. Chesterton (Heretics)

"Your dog has no words, but it barks and whines sentences at you. Your cat has no words, but it has a considerable feeling for the architecture of the sentence in relation to the problem of expressing climax." - Rebecca West (The Strange Necessity)

"To meet God means to enter into the 'cave of a tiger' - it is not a pussy cat you meet - it's a tiger. The realm of God is dangerous. You must enter into it and not just seek information about it." - Archbishop Anthony Bloom (Beginning to Pray)

Good Night. Whoever you are, wherever you are, or whether you are reading this blog. Good Night.
