Looks like I could fall in love with Simone Weil

This is, like, one of the sweetest quotes ever:

[A]s comedy, no dialogue of the deaf can compare with the polemic between the modern mind and the Church. The unbelievers select as arguments against the Christian faith, in the name of the scientific spirit, truths, which are indirectly, or even directly, manifest proof of the faith. Christians never perceive this and they make feeble attempts, with a bad conscience and a distressing lack of intellectual probity, to deny these truths.

Simone Weil, The Need for Roots (found quoted here)
