Zitate Gerard Manley Hopkins

„You do not mean by mystery what a Catholic does. You mean an interesting uncertainty: the uncertainty ceasing, interest ceases also...“

— Gerard Manley Hopkins
Context: You do not mean by mystery what a Catholic does. You mean an interesting uncertainty: the uncertainty ceasing, interest ceases also... But a Catholic by mystery means an incomprehensible certainty: without certainty, without formulation there is no interest;... the clearer the formulation the greater the interest. Letter to Robert Bridges (24 October 1883)

„Shape nothing, lips; be lovely-dumb“

— Gerard Manley Hopkins
Context: Shape nothing, lips; be lovely-dumb: It is the shut, the curfew sent From there where all surrenders come Which only makes you eloquent. "The Habit of Perfection", lines 5 - 8

„Nothing is so beautiful as Spring—
When weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush“

— Gerard Manley Hopkins
Context: Nothing is so beautiful as Spring— When weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush; Thrush’s eggs look little low heavens, and thrush Through the echoing timber does so rinse and wring The ear, it strikes like lightning to hear him sing. " Spring http://www.bartleby.com/122/9.html", stanza 1

„I say more, the just man justices;
Keeps grace: that keeps all his goings graces;
Acts in God's eye what in God's eye he is —
Christ — for Christ plays in ten thousand places,
Lovely in limbs, and lovely in eyes not his
To the Father through the features of men's faces.“

— Gerard Manley Hopkins
Context: I say more, the just man justices; Keeps grace: that keeps all his goings graces; Acts in God's eye what in God's eye he is — Christ — for Christ plays in ten thousand places, Lovely in limbs, and lovely in eyes not his To the Father through the features of men's faces. "As Kingfishers Catch Fire, Dragonflies Draw Flame" (undated poem, c. March - April 1877)

„I have desired to go
Where springs not fail“

— Gerard Manley Hopkins
Context: I have desired to go Where springs not fail, To fields where flies no sharp and sided hail And a few lilies blow. And I have asked to be Where no storms come, Where the green swell is in the havens dumb, And out of the swing of the sea. " Heaven-Haven http://www.bartleby.com/122/2.html", lines 1-8

„Look at the stars! look, look up at the skies!
O look at all the fire-folk sitting in the air!“

— Gerard Manley Hopkins
Context: Look at the stars! look, look up at the skies! O look at all the fire-folk sitting in the air! The bright boroughs, the circle-citadels there! " The Starlight Night http://www.bartleby.com/122/8.html" (1877), lines 1-3

„I always knew in my heart Walt Whitman’s mind to be more like my own than any other man’s living.“

— Gerard Manley Hopkins
Context: I always knew in my heart Walt Whitman’s mind to be more like my own than any other man’s living. As he is a very great scoundrel this is not a pleasant confession. Letter to Robert Bridges (18 October 1882)

„Glory be to God for dappled things—“

— Gerard Manley Hopkins
Context: Glory be to God for dappled things— For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow; For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim. " Pied Beauty http://www.bartleby.com/122/13.html", lines 1-3

„Over again I feel thy finger and find thee.“

— Gerard Manley Hopkins
Context: Thou mastering me God! giver of breath and bread; World’s strand, sway of the sea; Lord of living and dead; Thou hast bound bones and veins in me, fastened me flesh, And after it almost unmade, what with dread, Thy doing: and dost thou touch me afresh? Over again I feel thy finger and find thee. " The Wreck of the Deutschland http://www.bartleby.com/122/4.html", lines 1-8
