The soul in balance

blog_Washington-Cathedral_s.jpg

Washington Cathedral, designed by English architect George Bodley at the end of his life. The photo is by Alexandra K. Scott from The Soul in Balance, The Gardens of Washington National Cathedral.

I've written about the cathedral and the book before. The images in the book are accompanied by quotations, a number of them from Brits. I thought you might like these:

The world will never starve for want of wonders, but only for want of wonder. GK Chesterton (1874-1936)

Were there no God, we would be in this glorious world with grateful hearts and no one to thank. Christina Rossetti (1830-1894)

Be still and cool in thy own mind and spirit. George Fox (1624-1691)

God Almighty first planted a garden. And indeed it is the purest of all human pleasures. Sir Francis Bacon (1561-1626)

Prayer is not an idle occupation. It's a very powerful instrument of our work and love. Lady Julian of Norwich (1342-1416)

What a lovely photo: the pink blossoms, yes, but look at that sky!
