It is a most certain truth, that the richer we see ourselves to be, confessing at the same time our poverty, the greater will be our progress, and the more real our humility.

— Saint Teresa of Avila

Mysticism keeps men sane. As long as you have mystery you have health; when you destroy mystery you create morbidity. The ordinary man has always been sane because the ordinary man has always been a mystic. He has permitted the twilight. He has always had one foot in earth and the other in fairyland.

— GK CHESTERTON

— N.T. Wright

“Pain and suffering are always inevitable for a large intelligence and a deep heart. The really great men must, I think, have great sadness on earth.”

“Beauty will save the world”

— Fyodor Dostoevsky

— Fyodor Dostoevsky

“If you want to overcome the whole world, overcome yourself.”

— Fyodor Dostoevsky
