To return to love, to get the love we always wanted but never had, to have the love we want but are not prepared to give, we seek romantic relationships. We believe these relationships, more than any other, will rescue and redeem us. True love does have the power to redeem but only if we are ready for redemption. Love saves us only if we want to be saved.

I’ve learned not to trust people who cannot sit in silence with you. If you need to fill up every moment with chatter, something is uneasy within you and I cannot trust that.

  • For language to have meaning there must be intervals of silence somewhere, to divide word from word and utterance from utterance. He who retires into silence does not necessarily hate language. Perhaps it is love and respect for language which imposes silence upon him.

    The Europeans are not yet willing to acknowledge that the world did not wait in darkness for them to bring the light, and that the history of Africa was already old when Europe was born.

    September: it was the most beautiful of words, he’d always felt,
    evoking orange-flowers, swallows, and regret.

    You and I – are like two mountains.
    You and I – not meeting in this world.

    I wish people didn’t think silence was awkward, just enjoy it. Not every space has to be filled with words.

    Intersex babies are not having difficulty with sexual identity or self-image. The parents are, and parental anxiety about the appearance of a child’s genitals should be treated with counseling, not with surgery to the child.

    It is very difficult, and often impossible, for someone else to give you what you cannot find in yourself.

    Listen to your life. See it for the fathomless mystery it is. In the boredom and pain of it, no less than in the excitement and gladness: touch, taste, smell your way to the holy and hidden heart of it, because in the last analysis all moments are key moments, and life itself is grace.
