Publisher's Summary

Love added to anger produces work and a maturing of the human spirit. This is the message of "The Quarry", one of the more philosophical and secular poems from the Polish poet Karol Wojtyla, also known by the name Pope John Paul II. The observer analyzes the materials and technology, inspiration and satisfaction, and transformation of the stonecutters performing their work, as well as the danger in what they do. With a short introduction.

Short but beatuiful

Would you listen to The Quarry again? Why?

I would probably have to read it multiple times to gain a full understanding. But I liked it because I had no idea Pope John Paul II had written any poems!
