A Quote by Christopher Fry on awakening

Thank God our time is now
when wrong comes up to meet us everywhere
never to leave us till we take, the greatest stride of the soul
man ever took.
affairs are now soul size
the enterprise is exploration unto God.
Where are you making for?
It takes so many thousand years to wake.
But will you wake for pity's sake?

A Quote by Christopher Fry on concern, imagination, life, senses, and truth

The first of our senses which we should take care never to let rust through disuse is that sixth sense, the imagination. I mean the wide-open eye which leads us to see truth more vividly, to apprehend more broadly, to concern ourselves more deeply, to be, all our life long, sensitive and awake to the powers and responsibilities given to us as human beings.

A Quote by Christopher Fry on existence, justice, life, and time

I want to look at life - at the commonplaces of existence - as if we had just turned a corner and run into it for the first time.
