Three quotes from Marilynn Robinson's Gilead

"For me, writing has always felt like praying. . .you feel you are with someone. I feel I am
with you now. . ."

"Sometimes I have loved the peacefulness of an ordinary Sunday. It is like standing in a newly
planted garden after a warm rain. You can feel the silent and invisible life. All it needs from you is that you take care not to trample it."

". . .it is easy to believe in such moments that water was made primarily for blessing, and only
secondly for growing vegetables or doing wash. I wish I had paid more attention to it. . . .This
is an interesting planet. It deserves all the attention you can give it."
