Sunday Quotes: Notes From A Beach

“Of conquered repugnance are ultimate pleasures born;
paths that lead into a forest may not lead out again.
The legend of the Prodigal Son, I have heard, is the story
of one who could not stand to be loved.
We know that many saints are in Heaven,
but cannot announce with certainty that anyone is in Hell. 
Yet we do believe in the existence of Hell as utterly,
or more so, as we accept the idea of Heaven.”

-Evan S. Connell; Notes from a Bottle Found on the Beach at Carmel
