Gravity And Grace by Simone Weil


Only 1 remaining

The first published work by Simone Weil. A remarkable volume, compiled by Gustave Thibon, a farmer she had entrusted her notebooks before her untimely death.

“All the natural movements of the soul are controlled by laws analogous to those of physical gravity. Grace is the only exception. Grace fills empty spaces, but it can only enter where there is a void to receive it, and it is grace itself which makes this void. The imagination is continually at work filling up all the fissures through which grace might pass”
