Quote of the Day (Gerard Manley Hopkins, on “God, Lover of Souls’)

“God, lover of souls, swaying considerate scales,
Complete thy creature dear O where it fails,
   Being mighty a master, being a father and fond.”-- Gerard Manley Hopkins, “In the Valley of the Elwy,” in Gerard Manley Hopkins: Poems and Prose, edited by W.H. Gardener (Penguin Classics, 1985)
