“In reality, there is no faith without doubt. To believe one thing is to not believe another. Faith gives structure to work, but doubt gives structure to faith. Doubt asks questions that can keep faith from becoming ignorant superstition, violent triumphalism, or destructive judgementalism. Doubt purifies faith. Without doubt, belief calcifies into rigid fundamentalism.”
“I will remember your small room, the feel of you, the light in the window, your records, your books, our morning coffee, our noons, our nights, our bodies spilled together, sleeping, the tiny flowing currents, immediate and forever. Your leg, my leg, your arm, my arm, your smile and the warmth of you who made me laugh again.”
Don’t go too early.
You’re tired. But everyone’s tired.
But no one is tired enough.
Only wait a while and listen.”
