Listening to Each Other

On my journey to write my faith and to write well, I get lost and confused. Some encouragement from other writing friends:

“If you become a writer you’ll be trying to describe the thing all your life: and lucky if, out of dozens of books, one or two sentences, just for a moment, come near to getting it across.”

— C.S. Lewis, letter to a young writer

“Out of the darkness of my life, so much frustrated, I put before you the one great thing to love on earth: the Blessed Sacrament … There you will find romance, glory, honour, fidelity, and the true way of all your loves upon earth.”

― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien

“Yet we must say something when those who say the most are saying nothing.”

— Augustine, The Confessions

And another from Lewis:

“The world does not need more Christian literature. What it needs is more Christians writing good literature.”
