A Julian of Norwich Quote

” The relation of hope for the future and religious faith is probably the cornerstone of why faith so effectively fights despair and increases happiness.

As a Christian mystic, Julian of Norwich, sang from the depths of the Black Plague in the mid-fourteenth century  in some of the most beautiful words ever penned, “But all shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well…He said not, “Thou shalt not be tempested, thou shalt not be travailed, thou shalt not be diseased”, but He said, “Thou shalt not be overcome.”” ”     -Julian of Norwich, Martin Seligman in ‘Authentic Happiness”.
