QUOTE | FROM Annie Dillard




The question from agnosticism is, ‘who turned on the lights?’ The question from faith is ‘whatever for?’ Thoreau climbed Mount Katahdin and gives vent to an almost outraged sense of the reality of the things of this world: “I fear bodies, I tremble to meet them. What is this Titan that has possession of me? Talk of mysteries- think of our life in nature-daily to be shown matter, to come in contact with it,- rocks, trees, wind!
