3. "Membaca Kitab Suci buat saya adalah memasuki labirin. Ada ilusi dari sebuah jalan yang lempang dan lurus dengan sebuah 'pusat' - 'akhir yang tertebak, sementara dalam kenyataannya, labirin adalah lorong-lorong sempit. Kita hanya bisa maju atau mundur. Dinding-dinding masif di kanan kiri. Selalu berbelok dan menikung tak terduga.... Dalam labirin itu, fakta dan fiksi berkait, dunia berkelindan dengan kata-kata. Dan kata-kata tersebut menyajikan semesta yang gumpil - tak utuh, tak sepenuhnya benar, dan menyembunyikan sesuatu yang kita belum tahu.Kitab suci, seperti juga labirin, bukanlah sebuah peta - proyeksi dua dimensi dari garis dan kurva yang saling bertaut. Peta, hanya sebuah abstraksi, sekumpulan tanda dan legenda yang tak sanggup menggantikan pengalaman. Sementara itu dalam kitab suci, seperti juga labirin, selalu ada misteri yang tidak menuntut untuk dipecahkan, melainkan dialami. Berkali-kali."
Author: Avianti Armand

Ini berlaku baik dalam arti harfiah maupun secara kiasan."

12. "We see that in the organic world, to the same degree that reflection gets darker and weaker, grace grows ever more radiant and dominant. But just as two lines intersect on one side of a point, and after passing through infinity, suddenly come together again on the other side; or the image in a concave mirror suddenly reappears before us after drawing away into the infinite distance, so too, does grace return once perception, as it were, has traversed the infinite--such that it simultaneously appears the purest in human bodily structures that are either devoid of consciousness or which possess an infinite consciousness, such as in the jointed manikin or the god."
Author: Heinrich Von Kleist

And also, a thing is interesting because of thinking about it and not because of it being new."

Contingency means common tangency: in it the world and the body intersect and caress each other.

Skin intervenes between several things in the world and makes them mingle."
Author: Michel Serres

40. "All pulpits must passionately declare Christ to be the eternal Son of the living God, the only Savior of sinners. All preaching must boldly announce Him as the reigning Lord of heaven and earth. He must be fearlessly announced as the One before whom every knee will bow and every tongue will confess. All preaching must assert that this Jesus is the final Judge of every human life. To fulfill this sacred duty, every preacher must proclaim the full counsel of God. Every doctrine in Scripture must be delivered. Every truth must be taught. Every sin must be exposed. Every warning must be issued. And every promise must be offered. If God is to bless our preaching, the supreme majesty of Jesus Christ Himself must be expounded in our sermons. All the lines of our preaching must intersect at this highest pinnacle—Jesus Christ and Him crucified."

We always went to far, so Roithamer, so we were always pushing toward the extreme limit. But we never thrust ourselves beyond it. Once I have thrust myself beyond it, it's all over, so Roithamer, "all" underlined. We're always set toward the predetermined moment, "predetermined moment" underlined. When that moment has come, we don't know that it has come, but it is the right moment. We can exist at the heighest degree of intensity as long as we live, so Roithamer (June 7). The end is no process. Clearing."

45. "What is it that a young man wants? Where is the central source of that wild fury that boils up in him, that goads and drives and lashes him, that explodes his energies and strews his purpose to the wind of a thousand instant and chaotic impulses? The older and assured people of the world, who have learned to work without waste and error, think they know the reason for the chaos and confusion of a young man's life. They have learned the thing at hand, and learned to follow their single way through all the million shifting hues and tones and cadences of living, to thread neatly with unperturbed heart their single thread through that huge labyrinth of shifting forms and intersecting energies that make up life—and they say, therefore, that the reason for a young man's confusion, lack of purpose, and erratic living is because he has not "found himself."
Author: Thomas Wolfe
