QuotationI have been reading your Carnets [de notes] "¦ Everything you say is quite true & even prophetic. Our mania for organization will be judged & all will be burned except love and friendship. The small groups united by genuine love will remain everywhere & the rest will go, even in monasticism. I want to quote you in the book I am writing now.
