Simone Weil

Force is as pitiless to the man who possesses it, or thinks he does, as it is to its victims; the second it crushes, the first it intoxicates. The truth is, nobody really possesses it.More Simone Weil quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Those who are unhappy have no need for anything in this world but people capable of giving them their attention.More Simone Weil quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There can be a true grandeur in any degree of submissiveness, because it springs from loyalty to the laws and to an oath, and not from baseness of soul.More Simone Weil quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The needs of a human being are sacred. Their satisfaction cannot be subordinated either to reasons of state, or to any consideration of money, nationality, race, or color, or to the moral or other value attributed to the human being in question, or to any consideration whatsoever.More Simone Weil quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
prayer consists of attention. It is the orientation of all the attention of which the soul is capable towards God. The quality of the attention counts for much in the quality of the prayer. Warmth of heart cannot make up for it.More Simone Weil quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
