Margaret C. Barnes

  • ... real pity should stretch out to people whom we do not like — to those whom we have injured or who despitefully use us.

  • ... to weep for someone who is gone is desolation, but to weep for someone who has never really existed is to lose a part of oneself.

  • It is said that we only get to know God in those stark moments when we are driven to depend on him.

    • Margaret C. Barnes,
    • in The Windsor Magazine ()
