By Finding it Good

‘Consent to be completely inactive and useless better to allow God to work in me, and to desire only what He desires…We must… make death itself voluntary (although it be inevitable) by finding it good – which is impossible without faith, hope and charity.’

Raissa Maritain, Journals.

‘My formula for human greatness is amor fati: that one wants nothing to be different, not in the future, not in the past, not for all eternity… I want to learn more and more to see as beautiful what is necessary in things; then I shall be one of those who make things beautiful. Amor fati: let that be my love henceforth!’

Friedrich Nietzsche, The Gay Science.
