Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “My daughter, I am not a Mrs Whatsit, a Mrs Who, or a Mrs Which. Yes, Calvin has told me everything he could. I am a human being, and a very fallible one. But I agree with Calvin. We were sent here for something. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “The concentration of a small child at play is analogous to the concentration of the artist of any discipline. In real play, which is real concentration, the child is not only outside time, he is outside himself.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Inspiration does not always precede the act of writing; it often follows it.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “With our human limitations we’re not always able to understand the explanations.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “To grow up is to find the small part you are playing in the extraordinary drama written by somebody else.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “All teachers must face the fact that they are potential points of reference. The greatest challenge a teacher has to accept is the courage to be; if we are, we make mistakes; we say too much where we should have said nothing; we do not speak where a word might have made all the difference. If we are, we will make terrible errors. But we still have to have the courage to struggle on, trusting in our own points of reference to show us the way.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Artists of all disciplines must be willing to go into the dark, let go control, be surprised.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “All forms of art are consciousness expanders, and I am convinced that they will take us further, and more consciously, than drugs.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “I believe that each work of art, whether it is a work of great genius, or something very small, comes to the artist and says, “Here I am. Enflesh me. Give birth to me.””
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “If our language is watered down, then mankind becomes less human, and less free...”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Don’t keep putting your anger off. Until you go through it, you can’t get out of it.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Ananda: that joy without which the universe will fall apart and collapse.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “You’ve got to accept the fact that you are basically not teaching a subject, you are teaching children.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “One definition of hell is having your own way all the time.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Look at my glasses. I can’t even see that there are any stars in the sky without them, but it’s not the glasses that are doing the seeing, it’s me, Madeleine. I don’t think Father’s eyes are seeing now, but he is. And maybe his brain isn’t thinking, but a brain’s just something to think through, the way my glasses are something to see through.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Very few of us understand Honorable Bird, except to acknowledge that without his power and grace nothing would be written, painted, or composed at all. To say anything beyond this about the creative process is like pulling all the petals off a flower in order to analyze it, and ending up having destroyed the flower.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “I looked at this tiny, perfect creature and it was as though a light switch had been turned on. A great rush of love flooded out of me.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “It might be a good idea if, like the White Queen, we practiced believing six impossible things every morning before breakfast, for we are called on to believe what to many people is impossible. Instead of rejoicing in this glorious “impossible” which gives meaning and dignity to our lives, we try to domesticate God, to make his might actions comprehensible to our finite minds.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “The lines of love cross time and space.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “A book comes and says, ‘Write me.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “We do not have to understand in order to believe that behind the mystery and the fascination there is love.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “It hasn’t happened yet, nuclear war. No missiles have been sent. As long as it hasn’t happened, there’s a chance that it may not happen.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “In so-called primitive societies there are two words for power, mana and taboo: the power which creates and the power which destroys; the power which is benign and the power which is malign. Odd that we have retained in our vocabulary the word for dangerous power, taboo, and have lost mana.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “I love my mother, not as a prisoner of atherosclerosis, but as a person; and I must love her enough to accept her as she is, now, for as long as this dwindling may take.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Charles Wallace and the unicorn moved through the time-spinning reaches of a far glazy, and he realized that the galaxy itself was part of a mighty orchestra, and each star and planet within the galaxy added its own instrument to the music of the spheres. As long as the ancient harmonies were sung, the universe would not entirely lose its joy.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Mr Jenkins. Unique, as every star in the sky is unique, every leaf on every tree, every snowflake, every farandola, every cherubim, unique: Named.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “We are the called according to His purpose, and whom He calls, them He also justifies. Of course we have help, and without help it would be much more difficult.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “More personally, my intellect is a stumbling block to much that makes life worth living: laughter, love; a wiling acceptance of being created. The rational intellect doesn’t have a great deal to do with love, and it doesn’t have a great deal to do with art.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Art should communicate with as many people as possible.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “In my dreams, I never have an age.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Maybe you have to know the darkness to truly appreciate the light.” – Madeleine L’Engle.”

Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “We have much to be judged on when he comes, slums and battlefields and insane asylums, but these are the symptoms of our illness and the result of our failures in love.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “A community to be truly community, must have a quality of unselfconsciousness about it.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Basically there can be no categories such as ‘religious’ art and ‘secular’ art, because all true art is incarnational, and therefore ’religious.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Only Christ can free us from the prison of legalism, and then only if we are willing to be freed.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “You cannot see the past that did not happen any more than you can foresee the future.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Sure, go ahead.” Calvin fished in his pocket and pulled out a wad of folded paper. “As a matter of fact, I have some junk of mine to finish up. Math. That’s one thing I have a hard time keeping up in. I’m okay on anything to do with words, but I don’t do as well with numbers.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “A great painting or symphony or play, doesn’t diminish us, but enlarges us, and we, too, want to make our own cry of affirmation to the power of Creation behind the Universe...”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “There is little character or loveliness in the face of someone who has shunned risk, avoided suffering and rejected life.”

Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “I think your mythology would call them fallen angels. War and hate are their business, and one of their chief weapons is un-Naming – making people not know who they are. If someone knows who he is, really knows, then he doesn’t need to hate. That’s why we still need Namers, because there are places throughout the universe like your planet Earth. When everyone is really and truly Named, then the Echthroi will be vanquished.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Meaninglessness inhibits fullness of life and is therefore equivalent to illness. Meaning makes a great many things endurable – perhaps everything... It is not that ‘God’ is a myth, but that myth is the revelation of a divine life in man. It is not we who invent myth; rather, it speaks to us as a Word of God.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “The shadows are deepening all around us. Now is the time when we must begin to see our world and ourselves in a different way.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “When the bright angel dominates, out comes a great work of art, a Michelangelo David or a Beethoven symphony.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “If we knew ahead of time what was going to happen we’d be – we’d be like the people on Camazotz, with no lives of our own, with everything all planned and done for us.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Nothing really important in life is in the realm of provable fact.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Curled up on one of her pillows a gray fluff of kitten yawned, showing its pink tongue, tucked its head under again, and went back to sleep.”
