Wednesday of Hope – Holding the Memory of Light

This is the first and most important lesson every writer learns, that words are ever only a memory of the thing itself. Like catching sunlight in your cupped hands so you have it later when the dark comes on. Sometimes, the words, the memory of the light are all we have to keep us steady until the night ends.

– Brian Andreas, Story of the Day

The Spiritual Journey

And the world cannot be discovered by a journey of miles,
no matter how long,
but only by a spiritual journey,
a journey of one inch,
very arduous and humbling and joyful,
by which we arrive at the ground at our feet,
and learn to be at home.

– Wendell Berry

The Question

I don’t know Who — or what — put the question, I don’t know when it was put. I don’t even remember answering. But at some moment I did answer Yes to Someone — or Something — and from that hour I was certain that existence is meaningful and that, therefore, my life, in self-surrender, had a goal.

Every Little Thing We Do Is Important

We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

– Blessed Mother Teresa
