Thoughts for the Day 11.0

June 13
Faster no step moves God because the fool
Shouts to the universe God there is none;
The blindest man will not preach out the sun,
Though on his darkness he should found a school.
It may be, when he finds he is not dead,
Though world and body, sight and sound are fled,
Some eyes may open in his foolish head.

June 15
Who sets himself not sternly to be good,
Is but a fool, who judgment of true things
Has none, however oft the claim renewed.
And he who thinks, in his great plentitude,
To right himself, and set his spirit free
Without the might of higher communings,
Is foolish also—save he willed himself to be!

(George MacDonald, Diary of an Old Soul,
readings for June 13, 15)
