“There’s a reason we refer to ‘leaps of faith’ – because the decision to consent to any notion of divinity is a mighty jump from the rational over the unknowable, and I don’t care how diligently scholars of every religion will try to sit you down with their stack of books and prove to you through scripture that their faith is indeed rational; it isn’t.
If faith were rational, it wouldn’t be – by definition – faith. Faith is a belief in what you cannot see or prove or touch. Faith is walking face-first and full-speed into the dark.”
– Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert.
