Hildegard of Bingen Quotes

“Like billowing clouds, like the incessant gurgle of the brook, the longing of the soul can never be stilled. It is this longing with which holy persons seek their work from God.” ~Hildegard of Bingen

“The soul is the breath of living spirit, that with excellent sensitivity, permeates the entire body to give it life. Just so, the breath of the air makes the earth fruitful. Thus the air is the soul of the earth, moistening it, greening it.” ~Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179, German nun, Christian poet)
