Quotemeal: Dec. 23rd, 2022

Friday, December 23, 2022

"The whole concept of God taking human shape had never made much sense to me. That was because, I realised one wonderful day, it was so simple. For people with bodies, important things like love have to be embodied. That's all. God had to be embodied, or else people with bodies would never in a trillion years understand about love."
— Jane Vonnegut Yarmolinsky
