WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW IS LOVE

!!!!

Jacques Maritain as a young philosopher

Jacques Maritain in a letter to Jean Cocteau:

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 ART AND FAITH , Maritain/Cocteau, page 114
