There are long periods when life seems a small, dull round, a petty business with no point, and then suddenly we are caught up in some great event which gives us a glimpse of the solid and durable foundations of our existence.

There is not enough love and goodness in the world to permit giving any of it away to imaginary beings.

Who am I helping, what am I breaking, what am I giving, what am I taking?

The devil loves ‘curing’ a small fault by giving you a great one.

Give up thinking as though not giving it up. Observe techniques as though not observing.
