#3rd Day of Retreat Antoine de Saint-Exupery from "the Wisdom of the Sands" There must be a time of day when the person who makes plans forgets his plans and acts as if he had no plans at all. There must e a time of day when the person who has to speak falls very silent. And his mind forms no more propositions, and he asks himself: Did they have a meaning? there must be a time when the person of prayer goes to pray as if it were the first time in their life they had ever prayed; when the person of resolutions puts their resolutions aside as if they had all been broken, and they learn a different wisdom; distinguishing the sun from the moon, the stars from the darkness, the sea from the dry land and the night sky from the shoulder of a hill.
