Power... is the supreme end for all those who have not understood  (Simone Weil Quotes) Man alone can enslave man  (Simone Weil Quotes) The work of art which I do not make, none other will ever make it  (Simone Weil Quotes) One might lay down as a postulate: All conceptions of God which are incompatible with a movement of pure charity are false. All other conceptions of him, in varying degree, are true  (Simone Weil Quotes) God is rich in mercy. I know this wealth of his with the certainty of experience, I have touched it  (Simone Weil Quotes) Modern life is given over to immoderation. Immoderation invades everything: actions and thought, public and private life  (Simone Weil Quotes) I also am other than what I imagine myself to be. To know this is forgiveness  (Simone Weil Quotes) The Hebrews took for their idol, not something made of metal or wood, but a race, a nation, something just as Earthly. Their religion is essentially inseparable from such idolatry, because of the notion of the ‘chosen people’  (Simone Weil Quotes) Charity. To love human beings in so far as they are nothing. That is to love them as God does  (Simone Weil Quotes) It is only the impossible that is possible for God. He has given over the possible to the mechanics of matter and the autonomy of his creatures  (Simone Weil Quotes) We are like horses who hurt themselves as soon as they pull on their bits - and we bow our heads. We even lose consciousness of the situation, we just submit. Any re-awakening of thought is then painful  (Simone Weil Quotes) The payment of debts is necessary for social order. The non-payment is quite equally necessary for social order. For centuries humanity has oscillated, serenely unaware, between these two contradictory necessities  (Simone Weil Quotes) Every new development for the last three centuries has brought men closer to a state of affairs in which absolutely nothing would be recognized in the whole world as possessing a claim to obedience except the authority of the State. The majority of people in Europe obey nothing else  (Simone Weil Quotes) Electra weeping for the dead Orestes. If we love God while thinking that he does not exist, he will manifest his existence  (Simone Weil Quotes) Contemplating an object fixedly with the mind, asking myself, ‘What is it?’ without thinking of any other object or relating it to anything else for hours on end  (Simone Weil Quotes) Modern war appears as a struggle led by all the State apparatuses and their general staffs against all men old enough to bear arms  (Simone Weil Quotes) Because no other could do it, he himself went to the greatest possible distance, the infinite distance. This infinite distance between God and God, this supreme tearing apart, this incomparable agony, this marvel of love, is the crucifixion. Nothing can be further from God than that which has been made accursed  (Simone Weil Quotes) The vulnerability of precious things is beautiful because vulnerability is a mark of existence. The destruction of Troy. The fall of the petals from fruit trees in blossom. To know that what is most precious is not rooted in existence - that is beautiful  (Simone Weil Quotes) The recognition of human wretchedness is difficult for whoever is rich and powerful because he is almost invincibly led to believe that he is something. It is equally difficult for the man in miserable circumstances because he is almost invincibly led to believe that the rich and powerful man is something  (Simone Weil Quotes) Every atheist is an idolater- unless he is worshipping the true God in his impersonal aspect. The majority of the pious are idolaters  (Simone Weil Quotes) We cannot take a single step toward heaven. It is not in our power to travel in a vertical direction. If however we look heavenward for a long time, God comes and takes us up  (Simone Weil Quotes) Religion is a form of nourishment. It is difficult to appreciate the flavor and food-value of something one has never eaten  (Simone Weil Quotes) Love: To feel with one’s whole self the existence of another being....  (Simone Weil Quotes) Beauty captivates the flesh in order to obtain permission to pass right through to the soul. . . . When the feeling for beauty happens to be associated with the sight of some human being, the transference of love is made possible, at any rate in an illusory manner. But it is all the beauty of the world, it is universal beauty, for which we yearn.  (Simone Weil Quotes) In what concerns divine things, belief is not appropriate. Only certainty will do. Anything less than certainty is unworthy of God.  (Simone Weil Quotes) Armies under the control of ... a sovereign State cannot bring freedom to anyone.  (Simone Weil Quotes) It is not through the way in which someone speaks about God that I can see whether that person has passed through the crucible of Divine Love, but through the way the person speaks to me about things here on earth.  (Simone Weil Quotes) Evil, when we are in its power, is not felt as evil, but as a necessity, even a duty  (Simone Weil Quotes) ...nothing on earth can stop man from feeling himself born for liberty. Never, whatever may happen, can he accept servitude; for he is a thinking creature.  (Simone Weil Quotes) Art has no immediate future, because all art is collective and there is no more collective life  (Simone Weil Quotes)
