A Wrinkle in Time

I will be away this week end at a family reunion, hopefully relaxing and writing. Until then enjoy a few quotes out of the book "A Wrinkle in Time" by Madeleine L'engle

"Le coeur a ses raisons que la raison ne connait point. French. Pascal. The heart has its reasons, wherof reason knows nothing."

"Ab honesto virum bonum nihil deterret. Seneca. Nothing deters a good man from doing what is honorable."

"Justitiae soror fides. Latin again, of course. Faith is the sister of justice."

"Euripedes. Nothing is hopeless; we must hope for everything."

"Qui plus sait, plus se tait. French, you know. The more a man knows, the less he talks."

"Vitam impendere vero. To stake one's life for the truth."

and last but not least this quote out of the bible (as quoted by "Mrs. Who" in the book)

"Sing unto the Lord a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth, ye that go down to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof. Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift their voice; let the inhabitants of the rock sing, let them shout from the top of the mountains. Let them give glory unto the lord."
