Part of the astonishing humility of the love of God lies, not only in His human level approach in coming down to where we are, but in His perfect readiness to use ordinary people like ourselves as channels and instruments in our day and generation in the vast sweep of His unchanging purpose ....we have not properly grasped the generosity of his purpose....Such a high calling must simultaneously make us swell with pride and fall on our knees in humility.

In these days when power and size and speed are almost universally admired, it seems to me particularly important to study afresh the "weakness," the "smallness of entry" and the "slowness" of God as He began His vast work of reconstructing His disordered world. We are all tempted to take short cuts, to work for quick results and to evade painful sacrifice. It is therefore essential that we should look again at love incarnate in a human being, to see God himself at work within the limitations of human personality, and to base our methods on what we see Him do.

Imagination does not breed insanity. Exactly what does breed insanity is reason....The poet asks to get his head into the heavens. It is the logician who seeks to get the heavens into his head. And it is his head that splits. /
La imaginacion no provoca la locura. Para ser exacto, lo que fomenta la locura es la razon.... el poeta solo pretende entrar su cabeza en el cielo. El logico es el que pretende hacer entrar el cielo en su cabeza. Y es su cabeza la que revienta.
The one created thing which we cannot look at is the one thing in the light of which we look at everything. /
La unica cosa creada que no podemos ver, es la unica cosa a cuya luz podemos verlo todo.

it all began not by looking for interesting pictures, but by standing still, opening my eyes, and seeing what had been there all along.

When I’m scoping out a new project with a client, I start by asking three questions:
  1. What is your intention; what is it that you want to make / have made?
  2. What is your motivation; what is the reason you are doing this right now, as opposed to later?
  3. What is your expectation; what do you think will happen after you have what you’re asking me to do?
I find that these questions, when posed in real-time over the phone or over coffee, will give me almost everything I need to know.
