Rosamond Richardson wrote about Gerard Manley Hopkins that for him "holiness itself is grounded in things, not in intellectual ideas or abstract ideals. It's not a notion swilling around inside the head, it's a being thing . . . For the passionate priest, every creature speaks of itself, and by doing so of its origin in God. This revelation may be experienced serendipitously, irrelevantly even, in a moment of illumination . . . in what Wordsworth called spots of time, and in that flash, and experience of timelessness, a glimpse of the unity of all creation."
