By the Waters of Paradise - Francis Marion Crawford

This quote was added by malevolarky
I hear certain cynics laugh, and cry that all that has been said before. Do not laugh, my good cynic. You are too small a man to laugh at such a great thing as love. Prayers have been said before now by many... I do not think they lose anything by being repeated, nor you by repeating them. You say that the world is bitter, and full of the Waters of Bitterness. Love, and so live that you may be loved - the world will turn sweet for you, and you shall rest like me by the Waters of Paradise.
