Jolt Quote XVIII (Three from Simone Weil)

"The soul's natural inclination to love beauty is the trap God most frequently uses in order to win it and open it to the breath from on high."

"Beauty is a fruit which we look at without trying to seize it."

"Humanism was not wrong in thinking that truth, beauty, liberty, and equality are of infinite value, but in thinking that man can get them for himself without grace. "

(French Philosopher, Simone Weil)
