A gift beyond all earthly knowing

"Now she comes to him again. He can see her again: a bride, dressed all in white, as innocent as himself of the great power they were putting on, frightened and smiling--a gift to him such as he did not know, such as would not be known until the death that they would promise to meet together had been met, and so perhaps never to be known in this world."

Wendell Berry, Remembering (San Francisco: North Point Press, 1988), 113.
