W. H. Auden

Healing is the intuitive art of wooing nature

"Healing," Papa would tell me, "is not a science, but the intuitive art of wooing nature."

~ by W. H. Auden

To pray is to pay attention to something or someone other than oneself

To pray is to pay attention to something or someone other than oneself. Whenever we so concentrate our attention that we completely forget our own ego and desires, we are praying.

~ W. H. Auden

When grace dances

I know nothing,
except what everyone knows...
if there when Grace dances,
I must dance!
