#1257 The grace to transform

Attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity.

Human existence is so fragile a thing and exposed to such dangers that I cannot love without trembling.

To be rooted is perhaps the most important and least recognized need of the human soul.

Love of God is pure when joy and suffering inspire an equal degree of gratitude.

Humility is attentive patience.

We must not wish for the disappearance of our troubles but for the grace to transform them.

Quotes by Simone Weil

- How generous are you with your attention?
- How patient?
- How thankful?
- What is so fragile about life?
