The cross is a paradoxical religious symbol because it inverts the world’s value system with the news that hope comes by way of defeat, that suffering and death do not have the last word, that the last shall be first and the first last.
James Cone, The Cross and the Lynching Tree

Let no one grieve at his poverty, for the universal kingdom has been revealed. Let no one mourn that he has fallen again and again; for forgiveness has risen from the grave. Let no one fear death, for the Death of our Savior has set us free. He has destroyed it by enduring it.

— Saint John Chrysostom (347-407) Doctor of the Church

"But Thel delights in these no more because I fade away,

And all shall say, ‘without a use this shining woman liv’d,

Or did she only live, to be at death the food of worms?’”

The Cloud reclind upon his airy throne and answer’d thus.

"Then if thou art the food of worms, O virgin of the skies,

How great thy use, how great thy blessing; every thing that lives,

Lives not alone, nor for itself”

William Blake, Book of Thel II.17-27

I don’t. I don’t want anybody else to touch you. I’m silly. I get furious if they touch you.

I have learned now that while those who speak about one’s miseries usually hurt, those who keep silence hurt more.
