One of the ways in which I feel close to God is writing poetry.More Christian Wiman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I don’t believe in “laying to rest” the past. There are wounds we won’t get over. There are things that happen to us that, no matter how hard we try to forget, no matter with what fortitude we face them, what mix of religion and therapy we swallow, what finished and durable forms of art we turn them into, are going to go on happening inside of us for as long as our brains are alive.More Christian Wiman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It's just that different emotions and perceptions demand different frequencies and intensities.More Christian Wiman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is easy enough to write and talk about God while remaining comfortable within the contemporary intellectual climate. Even people who would call themselves unbelievers often use the word gesturally, as a ready-made synonym for mystery. But if nature abhors a vacuum, Christ abhors a vagueness. If God is love, Christ is love for this one person, this one place, this one time-bound and time-ravaged self.More Christian Wiman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There are dangers for an artist in any academic environment. Academia rewards people who know their own minds and have developed an ironclad confidence in speaking them. That kind of assurance is death for an artist.More Christian Wiman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
