Nothing actually stands between saying, “The river sang,” and “It was as if the river sang,” other than a set of rigid rules that forbids the former from being more than a metaphor. -Fr. Stephen Freeman

Prayers of Kierkegaard, IV
Father in Heaven! Hold not our sins up against us but hold us up against our sins So that the thought of Thee when it wakens in our soul, and each time it wakens, Should not remind us of what we have committed, but of what Thou didst forgive, Not of how we went astray but of how Thou didst save us.
