A Simone Weil Anthology
For Desire, oriented toward God,
is the only power able to make the soul rise up.
it is God alone who comes to take the soul
and lift it up. But desire alone
obligues him to come down.
He comes only to those who ask him to come.
And he connot restrain himself
from coming to those who ask
frequently, patiently, passionately.
