I would rediscover the secret of great communications and great combustions. I would say storm. I would say river. I would say tornado. I would say leaf. I would say tree. I would be drenched by all rains, mpoistened by all dews. I would roll like frenetic blood on the slow current of the eye of words turned into mad horses into fresh children into clots into curfew into vestiges of temples into precious stones remote enough to discourage miners. Whoever would not understand me would not understand any better the roaring of a toger. — Aimé Césaire

I would rediscover the secret of great communications and great combustions.
I would say storm. I would say river. I would say tornado.
I would say leaf. I would say tree.
I would be drenched by all rains, moistened by all dews.
I would roll like frenetic blood on the slow current of the eye of words turned into mad horses — into fresh children — into clots — into curfew — into vestiges of temples — into precious stones remote enough
to discourage miners. Whoever would not understand me
would not understand any better the roaring of a tiger.
— Aimé Césaire

I see clearly that the thing the church needs most today is the ability to heal wounds and to warm the hearts of the faithful; it needs nearness, proximity. I see the church as a field hospital after battle. It is useless to ask a seriously injured person if he has high cholesterol and about the level of his blood sugars! You have to heal his wounds. Then we can talk about everything else. Heal the wounds, heal the wounds…. And you have to start from the ground up.   — Pope Francis
