British by birth, nature and education, I am a classicist based in the UK.

This journal includes a small amount of public posting, but is mainly friends-only. Comments are restricted to registered LJ users. Please note that I do not maintain troll-feeding facilities here. My policy on friending is that I have no objection to people friending me if they wish to read the public material, but I am unlikely to friend back anyone who I don't know outside the internet.

O Lord and Master of my life, give me not the spirit of sloth, idle curiosity, lust for power and idle talk.
But grant unto me, Thy servant, a spirit of integrity, humility, patience and love.
Yea, O Lord and King, grant me to see mine own faults and not to judge my brother. For blessed art Thou unto the ages of ages. Amen.

The Prayer of Saint Ephrem.

Blessed are the cracked,
For they let in the light.

The sorrow will be writ in water; the joy in stone.

Language should be beautiful if we speak of a beautiful God.On Being a Priest Today, Christopher Cocksworth and Rosalind Brown, pg 97.

Let's face it. We're undone by each other. And if we're not, we're missing something. If this seems so clearly the case with grief, it is only because it was already the case with desire. One does not always stay intact. It may be that one wants to, or does, but it may also be that despite one's best efforts, one is undone, in the face of the other, by the touch, by the scent, by the feel, by the prospect of the touch, by the memory of the feel.Undoing Gender, Judith Butler, pg 19.

It is perfectly possible to be the world authority on a particular subject and yet to remain a moral, intellectual and spiritual newt.Reading Plotinus, Kevin Corrigan, pg 220.

Every good adventure has scary bits in it.
