Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “We have to make decisions, and we can’t make them if they’re based on fear.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Love is the one surprise.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “I am not some kind of computer. Only machines have glib answers for everything.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “This wasn’t the first time that I’d come close to death, but it was the first time I’d been involved in this part of it, this strange, terrible saying goodbye to someone you’ve loved.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “It’s a strange thing, how you can love somebody, how you can be all eaten up inside with needing them – and they simply don’t need you. That’s all there is to it, and neither of you can do anything about it. And they’ll be the same way with someone else, and someone else will be the same way about you and it goes on and on – this desperate need – and only once in a rare million do the same two people need each other.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Gregory of Nyssa points out that Moses’s vision of God began with the light, with the visible burning bush, the bush which was bright with fire and was not consumed; but afterwards, God spoke to him in a cloud. After the glory which could be seen with human eyes, he began to see the glory which is beyond and after light. The shadows are deepening all around us.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “What happens to what’s happened?”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Jesus was not a theologian. He was God who told stories.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Oh, Meg, you are a moron,” Calvin said. “Don’t you know you’re the nicest thing that’s happened to me in a long time?”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “One foggy night I was walking the dogs down the lane and heard the geese, very close overhead, calling, calling, their marvellous strange cry, as they flew by. I think that is what our own best prayer must sound like when we send it up to heaven.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Severe illness isolates those in close contact with it, because it inevitably narrows the focus of concern. To a certain extent this can lead to healing, but not if the circle of concern is so tight that it cannot be broken into, or out of.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “We tend to think things are new because we’ve just discovered them.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “I can’t do it for love of God, like Tom Tallis, or for heaven’s sake, as Mr. Frost said. But because I love people I have to act according to it – to the fact that I love them.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “The very young woman can be charming and delightful and pretty but only a mature woman can be beautiful; and only a mature man can be strong enough to be tender.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “She felt that she was being measured and found wanting.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “We all tend to make zealous judgments and thereby close ourselves off from revelation. If we feel that we already know something in its totality, then we fail to keep our ears and eyes open to that which may expand or even changes that which we so zealously think we know.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Time is inextricably tangled up with place, and can be measured only against place. Time has meaning only in relation to its position in space, the movement of a planet about a sun, of a night through stars.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “If she wanted to write Christian fiction, how was she to go about it? I told her that if she is truly and deeply a Christian, what she writes is going to be Christian, whether she mentions Jesus or not. And if she is not, in the most profound sense, Christian, then what she writes is not going to be Christian, no matter how many times she invokes the name of the Lord.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “In other words, to put it into Euclid, or old-fashioned plane geometry, a straight line is not the shortest distance between two points.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Many waters cannot quench love,′ she whispered. ‘Neither can floods drown it.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “All real art is, in its true sense, religious; it is a religious impulse; there is no such thing as a non-religious subject. But much bad or downright sacrilegious art depicts so-called religious subjects.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Accepting that we are angry is a healthy and appropriate response as long as we don’t get stuck in it. Acknowledging it is one way of going through it.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “We don’t have to know everything at once. We just do one thing at a time, as it is given us to do.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “The temptation for farandola or for man or for star is to stay an immature pleasure-seeker. When we seek our own pleasure as the ultimate good we place ourselves as the center of the universe. A fara or a man or a star has his place in the universe, but nothing created is the center.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Their love was a bright flower, youthful and radiantly beautiful.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “But our fear and our rejection does not take away from truth, and truth is what the Bible instructs us to know in order that we may be free.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “A book comes and says, ‘Write me.’ My job is to try to serve it to the best of my ability, which is never good enough, but all I can do is listen to it, do what it tells me and collaborate.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Goodness has never been a guarantee of safety.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Like all great fantasists, he has taught me about life, life in eternity rather than chronology, life in that time in which we are real.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Don’t worry about Charles Wallace, Meg,” her father had once told her. Meg remembered it very clearly because it was shortly before he went away. “There’s nothing the matter with his mind. He just does things in his own way and in his own time.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “God promised to make you free. He never promised to make you independent.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Stories, no matter how simple, can be vehicles of truth; can be, in fact, icons. It’s no coincidence that Jesus taught almost entirely by telling stories, simple stories dealing with the stuff of life familiar to the Jews of his day. Stories are able to help us to become more whole, to become Named. And Naming is one of the impulses behind all art; to give a name to the cosmos we see despite all the chaos.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “There are still stars which move in ordered and beautiful rhythm. There are still people in this world who keep promises. Even little ones, like your cooking stew over your Bunsen burner. You may be in the middle of an experiment, but you still remember to feed your family. That’s enough to keep my heart optimistic, no matter how pessimistic my mind. And you and I have good enough minds to know how very limited and finite they really are. The naked intellect is an extraordinarily inaccurate instrument.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “All right, all right, you go right on thinking you an act of God created in his image, and I’ll go right on thinking I’m descended from an ape. When you look in the mirror I should think you’d feel pretty discouraged; I wouldn’t be happy to look at myself and think that my faces is an Imago Dei. It wouldn’t make me feel I’d done very well by God. But when I look in the mirror and that I’m descended from an ape, I feel I’ve done remarkably well.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Sometimes idiosyncrasies which used to be irritating become endearing, part of the complexity of a partner who has become woven deep into our own selves.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “I wish human beings couldn’t have feelings. I am having feelings. They hurt.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “And there’s no getting around the fact that all life lives at the expense of another life.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Schooling, instead of encouraging the asking of questions, too often discourages it.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Yes! I dare disturb the universe.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “I do not believe that true optimism can come about except through tragedy.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “I know writers who write only when inspiration comes. How would Isaac Stern play if he played the violin only when he felt like it? He would be lousy.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “We cannot always cry at the right time and who is to say which time is right?”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “In reading we must become creators.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “The written word Should be clean as bone, Clear as light, Firm as stone. Two words are not As good as one. I.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Give the public the ‘image’ of what it thinks it ought to be, or what television commercials or glossy magazine ads have convinced us we ought to be, and we will buy more of the product, become closer to the image, and further from reality.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “You might call IT the Boss.” Then Charles Wallace giggled, a giggle that was the most sinister sound Meg had ever heard. “IT sometimes calls ITself the Happiest Sadist.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “When we can play with the unself-conscious concentration of a child, this is: art: prayer: love.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “Anything that’s natural can’t be sinful-it may be inconvenient, but it’s not sinful.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “A great piece of literature does not try to coerce you to believe it or agree with it. A great piece of literature simply is. It is a vehicle of truth, but it is not a blueprint, and we tend to confuse the two.”
Madeleine L'Engle Quote: “It was not an end, it was a beginging.”
