[Photo Journal] Churches and Tombstones in Norway


Myra here.

Every Tuesday, we share photographs from our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.

So it’s not always just waterfalls and fjords in Norway, there are also churches and tombstones that you can feast your eyes on.

Churches and Tombstones in Norway

“Disbelief is more resistant than faith because it is sustained by the senses.” 
― Gabriel García Márquez, Of Love and Other Demons

“I learned that the search for God is a Dark Night, that Faith is a Dark Night. And that’s hardly a surprise really, because for us each day is a dark night. None of us knows what might happen even the next minute, and yet still we go forward. Because we trust. Because we have Faith.” 
― Paulo Coelho, Brida

“Even the merest gesture is holy if it is filled with faith.” 
― Franz Kafka

“What is belief – what is faith – if you don’t continue it after failure?” 
― Brandon Sanderson, The Final Empire

“Loving another person is a wonderful thing, and if that love is sincere, no one ends up tossed into a labyrinth. You have to have more faith in yourself.” 
― Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood

“But maybe it’s what the world needs. A little less sense, and a little more faith.” 
― Rachel Joyce, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

“Back of every creation, supporting it like an arch, is faith. Enthusiasm is nothing: It comes and goes. But if one believes, then miracles occur.” 
― Henry Miller

“My tomb shall be in a spot where the north wind may scatter roses over it.” 
― Omar Khayyám

While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart.
