“The problem of the novelist who wishes to write about a mans encounter with God is how he shall make the experiencewhich is both natural and supernaturalunderstandable, and credible, to his reader. In any age this would be a problem, but in our own, it is a well- nigh insurmountable one. Todays audience is one in which religious feeling has become, if not atrophied, at least vaporous and sentimental.”
—Flannery OConnor (19251964)
“One who accumulates goodness will encounter goodness, and one who accumulates evil will encounter evil.”
