Great quote. Here's one for you:
"All human nature vigorously resists grace because grace changes us and the change is painful...Human nature is so faulty that it can resist any amount of grace [I don't think she means this literally; I think she means "a little or quite a lot"] and most of the time it does."
In my early adulthood, it was my discovery of O'Connor's letters that brought me back to the Church.

Another great quote. You know, I had better restrain myself or I will simply start typing out all of her words. I have always sited her "Mystery and Manners" quote re writing large to the nearly blind and shouting to the nearly deaf (in explaining why she wrote as she did)to defend my florid rhetoric; but, I really shouldn't do that as she was so much more understanding of Grace and the way she lived proved that.
An amasing woman and I hope she is rediscovered by today's youth.
