"The Sea is not less beautiful..." is a real quote

The "famous Jewish philosopher" on p. 187 of the novel "The sea is not less beautiful for our knowledge that ships are wrecked on it."

You can find it here for instance: Simone Weil on affliction, necessity, and waiting for God. Scan down a few paragraphs...

It's weird that Wood calls her a Jew, because she is basically a Christian (read the link above, you'll see what I mean). The one saving, er, grace, is that she is of Jewish descent.
