A Quote by Madeleine L'Engle on growing, belief, alive, and open mindedness

I do not think that I will ever reach a stage when I will say, "This is what I believe. Finished."  What I believe is alive... and open to growth.

A Quote by Madeleine L'Engle on discipline, writing, inspire, inspiration, prayer, pray, listen, and listening

It isn't easy, it does take an incredible amount of discipline, you don't just write just when you feel like it or you're not going to build up much of a body of work. Inspiration comes to you while you're writing rather than before....For me the discipline of writing and the discipline of prayer are identical, in that I have to let myself be got out of the way because that's not a do-it-yourself activity, and listen....When you write, don't think, write. You think before, you think after, you don't think during. When I'm praying, when I'm truly praying, I'm not thinking, I'm not speaking, I'm shutting up, so perhaps if God has something to say I can hear it. So writing too is an act of listening, listening to what has to be said.

That's the way things come clear. All of a sudden. And then you realize how obvious they've been all along.
