The Most Important Need

Love is not consolation.  It is light.

Attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity.

Human existence is so fragile a thing and exposed to such dangers that I cannot love without trembling.

We must not wish for the disappearance of our troubles but for the grace to transform them.

To be rooted is perhaps the most important and least recognized need of the human soul.

Quotes by Simone Weil
