There are times when one feels close to drowning in the mystery of life itself.
--JOYCE CAROL OATES
Above all, don't lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.
--writer Fyodor Dostoyevsky
If in the deepest place within you, you want and desire Truth above all else, even though you go astray in a thousand different ways, you will find yourself somehow, again and again, being brought back to what is True.
And if you do not want and desire Truth above all else, well, you already know what that leads to.
If I'm an ass, I should say so. If I don't, somebody else will. If I say it first, that disarms them.
--writer Charles Bukowski
Sitting still [is] a way of falling in love with the world and everything in it.
A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.
--writer Douglas Adams
