HOW HARD IS YOUR MIND / HOW SOFT IS YOUR HEART?

 

 

There is so little love in the world, men’s hearts are so cold, so frozen, even in people who are right – the only ones who could help the others.

One must have a hard mind and a meek heart.

Not counting soft minds with dry hearts, the world is almost entirely made up of hard minds with dry hearts and meek hearts with soft minds.

 

From a letter of Jacques Maritain to Jean Cocteau in the book

ART AND FAITH, page 114
