“...we can't survive without enchantment... the loss of it is killing us.”
-- Thomas Moore

“There is one thing that all true spirituality has in common, whether that spirituality is derived from faith, from science, from nature or from the arts – a sense of wonder.”
-- Andrew Schneider

"There are only two ways to live your life:
One is as though nothing is a miracle,
The other is as though everything is a miracle.
I believe in the latter."
-- Albert Einstein

“We live in a world of theophanies.
Holiness comes wrapped in the ordinary.
There are burning bushes all around you.
Every tree is full of angels.
Hidden beauty is waiting in every crumb.
Life wants to lead you from crumbs to angels, but this can happen only if you are willing to unwrap the ordinary by staying with it long enough to harvest its treasure.”
-- Macrina Wiederkehr
