(Click on title for more information)

 
 

 

 

HUGO, VICTOR

God places in His breath and God blends with His voice

All the flowers of the field, and the birds of the forest.

(Hugo, 1972, 553)

 

Cathedrals are beautiful

And rise high into the blue sky

But the nests of the swallows

Are the building of God

(Hugo, 1967, P. 565)

 

“Let us love! That’s all. This is God’s will.”

(Ibid., 566)

 

“The soul exists

And the proof

Is the fact that we contemplate creation

And that we contemplate the Creator.

...

God promises everything he manifests

Showing us the heavens is like promising it to us

And having shown it to us is having promised it to us.”

(Ibid., 839)

 

“God I suffer too much

I cannot tell you how much

And what goes on inside of me.

I cannot hide from you the dark battles

The deep despair

When God breathes on man, He acts on his inner being

And sees deep within it.”

(Ibid., 840)

 

My Lord, my whole being is, since my childhood,

A hymn to the beauty of creation. (Ibid., 841)
