Love unannounced goes in to God,
Hath instant audience:
Long in the antechamber wait
Wit and intelligence.

--Angelus Silesius
Translated by J.E. Crawford Flitch


The virtues of art, like the virtues of faith, are such that they reach beyond the limitations of the intellect, beyond any mere theory that a writer may entertain.

-- Flannery O'Connor (b. 25 March 1925) Mystery and Manners
