Favourite Quotes: On Faith

Faith is not about belief in something irrational or about a blind connection to something unreal. It’s about a gathering, an accumulation of events and experiences of a different order. These experiences are gradually convincing enough, or you have paid them so much attention, they reach critical mass. The famous ‘leap’ comes at the beginning, when there is not enough experience to justify the effort. Even then, something begins faith – a memory of a reality or of an experience that doesn’t quite fit with everything else, the longing a soul has to find its shape in the world.”
