“Though tied to Earth by flesh and blood, we human beings soar beyond our limits, yearning for a universe beyond our reach.”

“Faith is a lot like hope. It isn’t reasonable. It doesn’t protect itself at all costs. Love embraces both the faithful and the despairing, strengthens the will, holds up exhausted arms, and heals even the most mortally pierced heart.”
