Last week I posted three quotes from notable German theologian, and victim of the Nazi regime, Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Here are a few more… five actually. One a day until Good Friday…

Silence in the face of evil is itself evil – Bonhoeffer

If you board the wrong train, it is no use running along the corridor in the opposite direction – Bonhoeffer

The blessedness of waiting is lost on those who cannot wait, and the fulfilment of promise is never theirs. They want quick answers to the deepest questions of life and miss the value of those times of anxious waiting, seeking with patient uncertainties until the answers come. They lose the moment when the answers are revealed in dazzling clarity – Bonhoeffer

We are not to simply bandage the wounds of victims beneath the wheels of injustice, we are to drive a spoke into the wheel itself – Bonhoeffer

There is meaning in every journey that is unknown to the traveller – Bonhoeffer
