intertwined with affection

Affection is responsible for nine-tenths of whatever solid
and durable happiness there is in our lives.
C. S. Lewis


(Cades Cove / Julie Cook / 2015)

“We should recall that no man is an island, entire of itself.
Our lives are involved with one another, through innumerable interactions
they are linked together.
No one lives alone.
No one sins alone.
No one is saved alone.
The lives of others continually spill over into mine:
in what I think, say, and do, and achieve.
And conversely, my life spills over into that of others:
for better or for worse.
So my prayer for another is not something extraneous to that person,
something external, not even after death.”

Pope Benedict XVI

Pope Benedict XVI
