Henri Nouwen – Standing erect, holding our heads high, is the attitude of spiritually mature people in face of the calamities of our world. The facts of everyday life are a rich source for doomsday thinking and feeling. But it is possible for us to resist this temptation and to stand with self-confidence in this world, never losing our spiritual ground, always aware that “sky and earth will pass away” but the words of Jesus will never pass away (see Luke 21:33).
“Art is a lie that makes us realize truth.”
- Pablo Picasso
What is your religion telling you? How to be a Jew? A Catholic? Or how to be a human being? – Joseph Campbell
