Julian of Norwich

  • ... all shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well.

  • Peace and love are always in us, existing and working, but we are not always in peace and in love.

  • Pray inwardly, even if you do not enjoy it. It does good, though you feel nothing. Yes, even though you think you are doing nothing.

  • Prayer oneth the soul to God.

  • As we know, our own mother bore us only into pain and dying. But our true mother, Jesus, who is all love, bears us into joy and endless living. Blessed may he be.

  • As truly as God is our Father, so truly God is our Mother ...

  • If there be anywhere on earth a lover of God who is always kept safe from falling, I know nothing of it, for it was not shown me. But this was shown: that whether in falling or in rising we are always kept in the same precious love.

  • Until I am essentially united with God, I can never have full rest or real happiness.

  • In God's sight we do not fall: in our own we do not stand.

  • He [Jesus] did not say, 'You will never have a rough passage, you will never be over-strained, you will never feel uncomfortable,' but he did say, 'You will never be overcome.'

  • God is our clothing, that wraps, clasps and encloses us so as to never leave us.

  • A cheerful giver does not count the cost of what he gives. His heart is set on pleasing and cheering him to whom the gift is given.

  • Be a Gardener. Dig a ditch. Toil and sweat. And turn the earth upside down. And seek the deepness. And water plants in time. Continue this labor. And make sweet floods to run, and noble and abundant fruits to spring. Take this food and drink, and carry it to God as your true worship.

  • ... our natural Will is to have God, and the Good Will of God is to have us; and we may never cease from willing nor from longing till we have Him in fullness of joy: and then may we no more desire.

  • Where do we begin? Begin with the heart.

Julian of Norwich, English mystic

(1342 - 1443)
