firemen rescued her and she suffered only shock from the ordeal.

Pascal's Place in Paris

"He laughed softly to himself as he wrote.
This sense of secrecy was something he had to cultivate
in order to overcome a natural openness and a quick temper.
At the age of ten or eleven his artless enthusiasm
and outraged sense of right and wrong
had made him the despair of his teachers, but he had
slowly learned to breathe and keep calm,
not to trust in his responses, but to wait and be watchful."
Excerpt from the novel "Birdsong" by Sebastian Faulks.

"He shall not be afraid of evil tidings :
his heart is fixed , trusting in the Lord."
Psalm 112:7
