Thought for the day, Friday 17th September

“Humanity finds itself in the midst of the world.
In the midst of all other creatures
humanity is the most significant
and yet the most dependent upon the others.
Humanity is small in stature,
but powerful in strength of soul.
With head directed upward,
with feet on firm ground,
humanity can set all things in motion,
things above as well as things below.”
Hildegard of Bingen (1098 – 1179), mystic and polymath, who died on this day
