At times it seems to me that I am living my life backwards, and that at the approach of old age my real youth will begin. My soul was born covered with wrinkles—wrinkles my ancestors and parents most assiduously put there and that I had the greatest trouble removing.
Sin is whatever obscures the soul.
Ah, this, that we call happiness, how intimate a part of the soul it is, and of what little importance are the outside elements which seem to go to its making!
Oh, if only we could lean over the soul we love and see as in a mirror the image we cast there!
Quote of the day
Truth does not sit in a cave and hide like a lie. It wanders around proudly and roars loudly like a lion.
