Maybe the Best Quote Ever


"The day will come when, after harnessing space, the winds, the tides, and gravitation, we shall harness for God the energies of love. And on that day, for the second time in the history of the world, we shall have discovered fire."

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

(Artwork: "The Love Embrace of the Universe" by Frida Kahlo)

One could say that the heart is the last wilderness and unknown to be fully realized.

Yes, I understand this quote and it is filled with hope.

The artwork is beautiful! I could look at this for hours. It, too, is filled with hope and peace.

amazing what can be constructed from words. Definitely one of the best statements I've ever read.
