„The nightsea journey may be absurd, but here we swim, will-we nill-we, against the flood, onward and upward, toward a shore that may not exist and couldn't be reached if it did.“

—  John Barth, Lost In the Funhouse (1968), Night-sea Journey

„If it be heaven toward which we journey, it will be holiness in which we delight“

—  Henry Melvill British academic 1798 - 1871

„He taught us to do good against ill: here may we see that He is Himself this charity, and doeth to us as He teacheth us to do.“

—  Julian of Norwich English theologian and anchoress 1342 - 1416
The Thirteenth Revelation, Chapter 40, Context: As mighty and as wise as God is to save men, so willing He is. For Christ Himself is ground of all the laws of Christian men, and He taught us to do good against ill: here may we see that He is Himself this charity, and doeth to us as He teacheth us to do. For He willeth that we be like Him in wholeness of endless love to ourself and to our even-Christians: no more than His love is broken to us for our sin, no more willeth He that our love be broken to ourself and to our even-Christians: but endlessly hate the sin and endlessly love the soul, as God loveth it. Then shall we hate sin like as God hateth it, and love the soul as God loveth it. And this word that He said is an endless comfort: I keep thee securely.
