#Omens&Symbols . . . . There is nothing as near as the eternal.


‘Ta Tir na n-og ar chul an ti – tir alainn, trina cheile’ — that is, ‘The land of eternal youth is behind the house, a beautiful land fluent within itself.’ 
The eternal world and mortal world are not parallel, rather they are fused. The beautiful Gaelic phrase, ‘fighte fuaighte’…’woven into and through each other’…captures this.”

-John O’Donohue; Anam Cara
