In a serious struggle there is no worse cruelty than to be magnanimous at an inopportune time.
I have often been asked, Do not people bore you? I do not understand quite what that means. I suppose the calls of the stupid and curious, especially of newspaper reporters, are always inopportune. I also dislike people who try to talk down to my understanding. They are like people who when walking with you try to shorten their steps to suit yours; the hypocrisy in both cases is equally exasperating.
We understand God by everything in ourselves that is fragmentary, incomplete, and inopportune.
