Quote of the Day (710/09) (Simone Weil Week)

The bridges of the Greeks. We have inherited them but we do not know how to use them. We thought they were intended to have houses built upon them. We have erected skyscrapers on them to which we ceaselessly add stones. We no longer know that they are bridges, things, made so that we may pass along them, and that by passing along them we go toward God.
--Simone Weil
