Dag Hammarskjold

“I don’t know who or what put the question. I don’t know when it was put. I don’t remember answering. But I know, at some point, I did answer ‘Yes’ to Someone or Something. And from that hour on, I was certain that existence is meaningful and that, therefore, my life, in self-surrender, had a purpose and a goal.”

Carlo Carretto

“True prayer demands that we be more passive than active; it requires more silence than words, more adoration than study, more concentration than rushing about, more faith than reason. We must understand thoroughly that true prayer is a gift from heaven to earth, from the father to his child, from the bridegroom to the bride, from him who has to the one who has not, from Everything to nothing.”
