Julian’s hazelnut

“And in this he showed me a little thing, the quantity of a hazelnut, lying in the palm of my hand, and to my understanding it was round as any ball.  I looked upon it and thought: What may this be? And I was answered generally this way: It is all that is made.  I marvelled how it might last, for I thought it might fall into nothing because of its littleness.  And I was answered in my understanding: It lasts and always shall, for God loves it; and so all things have being through the love of God.”

Julian of Norwich
