Marilyn Sewell

  • Who can order the Holy? It is like a rain forest, dripping, lush, fecund, wild. We enter its abundance at our peril, for here we are called to the wholeness for which we long, but which requires all we are and can hope to be.

  • The body has its own way of knowing, a knowing that has little to do with logic, and much to do with truth, little to do with control, and much to do with acceptance, little to do with division and analysis, and much to do with union.

  • Sentimentality comes from an inability, for whatever reason, to look reality in the face.

Marilyn Sewell, U.S. minister, writer, activist

(1941)
