All Is Well

Books 001

… So Donal lives a present power of heat and light in the place. Most of his early friends are gone, but he wears yet the same solemn look, with the same hovering smile. It seems to say to those who can read it, “I know in whom I have believed” … “God is,” he will say, coming out of one of his talking moods; “God is, and all is well.” When he has said that, he never says anything more, but listens only to those about him. He never disputes, rarely seeks to convince. “I will do what I can to let what light I have shine; but disputation is smoke, and serves only to obscure the light. It is to no profit – and I do like,” he will say, “to give and to get the good of things!”

    — George MacDonald, Donal Grant
