Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “An infinite question is often destroyed by finite answers. To define everything is to annihilate much that gives us laughter and joy.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “If we are to be aware of life while we are living it, we must have the courage to relinquish our hard-earned control of ourselves.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “On Camazotz we are all happy because we are all alike. Differences create problems. You know that, don’t you, dear sister?”

Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “I don’t know if they’re really like everybody else, or if they’re able to pretend they are.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “If we commit ourselves to one person for life, this is not, as many people think, a rejection of freedom; rather, it demands the courage to move into all the risks of freedom, and the risk of love which is permanent; into that love which is not possession but participation.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Euripedes. Nothing is hopeless; we must hope for everything.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “I rebel against death, yet I know that it is how I respond to death’s inevitability that is going to make me less or more fully alive.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “There are times when I feel that he has withdrawn from me, and I have often given him cause, but Easter is always the answer to My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me!”

Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Freedom is a terrible gift, and the theory behind all dictatorships is that “the people” do no want freedom.”

Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “It really helped ever so much because it made me mad, and when I’m mad I don’t have room to be scared.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “There was no light. The darkness was deep and there was no dazzle.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “To marry is the biggest risk in human relations that a person can take.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “I like the fact that in ancient Chinese art the great painters always included a deliberate flaw in their work: human creation is never perfect.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “We turn to stories and pictures and music because they show us who and what and why we are, and what our relationship is to life and death, what is essential, and what, despite the arbitrariness of falling beams, will not burn.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “I believe that good questions are more important than answers, and the best children’s books ask questions, and make the readers ask questions. And every new question is going to disturb someone’s universe.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Silence fell between them, as tangible as the dark tree shadows that fell across their laps and that now seemed to rest upon them as heavily as though they possessed a measurable weight of their own.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Oh child, your language is so utterly simple and limited that it has the affect of extreme complication. -Aunt Beast.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “We tend to defend vigorously things that in our deepest hearts we are not quite certain about. If we are certain of something we know, it doesn’t need defending.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Come t’e’ picciol fallo amaro morso! Dante. What grievous pain a little fault doth give thee!”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “All children are artists, and it is an indictment of our culture that so many of them lose their creativity, their unfettered imaginations, as they grow older.”

Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Creative scientists and saints expect revelation and do not fear it. Neither do children. But as we grow up and we are hurt, we learned not to trust.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “The degree of talent, the size of the gift, is immaterial. All artists must listen, but not all hear great symphonies, see wide canvasses, conceive complex, character-filled novels. No matter, the creative act is the same, and it is an act of faith.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Hate is like cancer, separate from the normal cells, devouring and not being nourished, annihilating itself along with everything it attacks.”
