At the bottom of the heart of every human being there is something that goes on indomitably expecting, in the teeth of all experience of crimes committed, suffered and witnessed, that is good and not evil will be done to her. It is this above all that is sacred in every human life.
– Simone Weil
I love the quote from Simone Weil, but I think you left out the word “not” prior to evil.
“that good and not evil will be done to her.” Thank you for lifting up such gracious words and images.
Thank you for catching that, John! It sounded like you truly enjoyed your hiking trip. Take care! Pat
