On Prayer
… All I know is that prayer constructs a velvet bridge
And walking it we are aloft, as on a springboard,
Above landscapes the color of ripe gold
Transformed by a magic stopping of the sun.
– Czeslaw Milosz, Polish Author

 

Certain thoughts are prayers. There are moments when,
whatever be the attitude of the body, the soul is on its knees.
– Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

 

 

One single grateful thought raised to heaven is the most perfect prayer.
– G. E. Lessing, German writer and philosopher

 

 

Listening is the beginning of prayer.
– Mother Teresa

 

Be not forgetful of prayer. Every time you pray, if your prayer is sincere,
there will be new feeling and new meaning in it, which will give you fresh courage,
and you will understand that prayer is an education.
– Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov
