'The false optimism, the modern happiness, tires us because it tells us we fit into this world. The true happiness is that we don't fit. We come from somewhere else.'
Painting: Edward Austin Abbey, In the Choir
Amen to that!ReplyDelete
My heart caught on the phrase 'modern happiness'....ReplyDelete

The secular deception once again! Love Chesterton and this quote. So good to sit with these thoughts and attempt to practice being in the world but not of it. Thank you for all these great thoughts and paintings. Very inspiring and bright during this cold, cold time....ReplyDelete
