Julian of Norwich

Julian experienced visions from God 650 years ago in Norwich and, by writing them down, became the first woman writer in the English language.

“God, of your goodness, give me yourself; you are enough for me, and anything less that I could ask for would not do you full honour. And if I ask anything that is less, I shall always lack something, but in you alone I have everything.”

Chapter 5

Julian of Norwich

"He did not say, 'You shall not be perturbed, you shall not be troubled, you shall not be distressed', but he said, 'You shall not be overcome.' "
