Divine life is in touch with the whole universe on the analogy of the soul's contact with the body.
Life is like an analogy.
Identification of rhythm as the casual counterpart of life; wherever there is some life, only perceptible to us when the analogies are sufficiently close.
Life is like a box of terrible analogies...
Analogies, it is true, decide nothing, but they can make one feel more at home.
Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what they have been through.
