“– had I needed to search so long? Why had I expected a teaching that would come from outside myself? Why had I expected the world to justify itself to me, and prove its meaning and purity? It was for me to justify the world by loving and forgiving it, to discover its meaning through love, to purify it through forgiveness.

They went on beating me, but I learned to pray while the screams issued mechanically from my ill-used body — wordless prayers to a universe that could be a person, a being, a multitude or something utterly strange, who could say?

If I love the world as it is, I am already changing it: a first fragment of the world has been changed, and this is my own heart.”
