Bereft Quotations

I'm in awe of the universe, but I don't necessarily believe there's an intelligence or agent behind it.

The incense is powerful and provocative, whether Buddhist or Catholic.

Anthony Hopkins

What would the world be, once bereft Of wet and wildness? Let them be left, O let them be left, wildness and wet, Long live the weeds and the wildness yet.
Gerard Manley Hopkins
