Imagination is the great friend of possibility. Possibilities are always more interesting than facts. We shouldn’t frown on facts, but our world is congested with them. Facts are possibilities that have already been actualized. But for every fact that becomes a fact, there are seven, eight, maybe five hundred possibilities hanging around that didn’t make it into the place where they could be elected and realized as the actual fact. John O’Donohue
Each person is always on the threshold between their inner world and their outer world, between light and darkness, between known and unknown, between question and quiet, between fact and possibility…John O’Donohue
Imagination is one of the closest presences in the whole family of wonder. In a way, imagination is a quality of all these differences, and imagination is the threshold at which they begin to emerge. Imagination never pretends to know all. It never demands or claims an absolute standpoint, but it always relishes and celebrates the fact it is on the threshold where it cannot see everything.
The Lord is close to the broken-hearted.
I view death mostly as a significant change of address. Anne Lamott
Perspective doesn’t reduce the gravitas; it increases reverence. Anne Lamott
