„The needs of the soul can for the most part be listed in pairs of opposites which balance and complete one another.“

—  Simone Weil
Context: The needs of the soul can for the most part be listed in pairs of opposites which balance and complete one another. The human soul has need of equality and of hierarchy. Equality is the public recognition, effectively expressed in institutions and manners, of the principle that an equal degree of attention is due to the needs of all human beings. Hierarchy is the scale of responsibilities. Since attention is inclined to direct itself upwards and remain fixed, special provisions are necessary to ensure the effective compatibility of equality and hierarchy.

„To believe that the desire for good is always fulfilled — that is faith, and whoever has it is not an atheist.“

—  Simone Weil
Context: In order to obey God, one must receive his commands. How did it happen that I received them in adolescence, while I was professing atheism? To believe that the desire for good is always fulfilled — that is faith, and whoever has it is not an atheist. Last Notebook (1942) p. 137

„Science is voiceless; it is the scientists who talk.“

—  Simone Weil
Context: "Science affirms that..." Science is voiceless; it is the scientists who talk. “Reflections on quantum theory,” p. 57

„Religion in so far as it is a source of consolation is a hindrance to true faith; and in this sense atheism is a purification.“

—  Simone Weil
Context: Religion in so far as it is a source of consolation is a hindrance to true faith; and in this sense atheism is a purification. I have to be an atheist with that part of myself which is not made for God. Among those in whom the supernatural part of themselves has not been awakened, the atheists are right and the believers wrong. "Faiths of Meditation; Contemplation of the divine" as translated in The Simone Weil Reader (1957) edited by George A. Panichas, p. 417

„The human soul has need of truth and of freedom of expression.“

—  Simone Weil
Context: The human soul has need of truth and of freedom of expression. The need for truth requires that intellectual culture should be universally accessible, and that it should be able to be acquired in an environment neither physically remote nor psychologically alien.

„Conscience is deceived by the social.“

—  Simone Weil
Context: Conscience is deceived by the social. Our supplementary energy (imaginative) is to a great extent taken up with the social. It has to be detached from it. That is the most difficult of detachments. p. 123

„But a war of any scope will give rise to others as formidable.“

—  Simone Weil
Context: The prospects of revolution seem therefore quite restricted. For can a revolution avoid war? It is, however, on this feeble chance that we must stake everything or abandon all hope. An advanced country will not encounter, in the case of revolution, the difficulties which in backward Russia served as a base for the barbarous regime of Stalin. But a war of any scope will give rise to others as formidable. "Reflections on War" (1933); also in Formative Writings (2009)
