Loving God’s Creation

I remember reading Crime and Punishment and The Brothers Karamazov when I was in high school. If there were quotes like this in Dostoevsky’s books, I missed them entirely. Of course I was 18, and likely not looking in the same way. It is wonderful to read them now!

Love all that has been created by God, both the whole and every grain of sand. “
Love every leaf and every ray of light.
Love the beasts and the birds, love the plants, love every separate fragment.
If you love each separate fragment,
you will understand the mystery of the whole resting in God.

– Fyodor Dostoevsky

Love each flower and petal.
