... and bless when I understand

Three quotations for the new year - with thanks to Mark Oakley and his chapter on Discovery in The Collage of God

I greet him when I meet him, and bless when I understand.
Gerard Manley Hopkins (Wreck of the Deutschland)

We had the experience, but missed the meaning.
T S Eliot (The Dry Salvages)

We never catch
him at work, but can only say,
coming suddenly on an amendment,
that here he has been.
R S Thomas (Adjustment)
