Madeleine L'Engle Quotes

Madeleine L'Engle

Madeleine L'Engle

Madeleine L'Engle

In the evening of life we shall be judged on love, and not one of us is going to come off very well, and were it not for my absolute faith in the loving forgiveness of my Lord I could not call on him to come.
Madeleine L'Engle

Inspiration usually comes during work, rather than before it.
Madeleine L'Engle

It is the ability to choose which makes us human.
Madeleine L'Engle

She seems to have had the ability to stand firmly on the rock of her past while living completely and unregretfully in the present.
Madeleine L'Engle

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

The great thing about getting older is that you don't lose all the other ages you've been.
Madeleine L'Engle

We have much to be judged on when he comes, slums and battlefields and insane asylums, but these are the symptoms of our illness and the result of our failures in love.
Madeleine L'Engle

When the bright angel dominates, out comes a great work of art, a Michelangelo David or a Beethoven symphony.
Madeleine L'Engle

When we were children, we used to think that when we were grown-up we would no longer be vulnerable. But to grow up is to accept vulnerability... To be alive is to be vulnerable.
Madeleine L'Engle
