Georges Bernanos Quote
Sadness came into the world with Satan — that world our Saviour never prayed for, the world you say I do not know. Oh, it is not so difficult to recognize: it is the world that prefers cold to warmth! What can God find to say to those who, of their own free will, of their own weight incline towards sadness and turn instinctively towards the night?
Chantal to her father, Monsieur de Clergerie, p. 85 - La joie (Joy) 1929
