A Quote by Mary Doria Russell on grace and wisdom

    Sandoz turned and accepted the book, looking at the spine.  "Aeschylus?"
    Wordlessly, Guiuliani pointed out the passage, and Emilio studied it a while, slowly translating the Greek in his mind.  Finally, he said, " ' In our sleep, pain which cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, until, in our own despair, againstour will, comes wisdom through the awful grace of God.' "
