Wisdom comes out of a life of contemplation, and often it is the simple things that are the deepest and most meaningful. Instance this quotation from Julian of Norwich.
I saw that God was everything that is good
God is our clothing
that wraps, clasps and encloses us
so as never to leave us.
God showed me in my palm
a little thing round as a ball
about the size of a hazelnut.
I looked at it with the eye of my understanding
and asked myself:
“What is this thing?”
and I was answered: “It is everything that is created.”
I wondered how it could survive since it seemed so little
it could suddenly disintegrate into nothing.
The answer came: “It endures and ever will endure,
because God loves it.”
And so everything has being because of God's love.
