The ego that sees a "thou" 
is not the same ego that sees an "it."

If only I had the time. 
To tell you how I climbed
Out of the darkness. 
Out of my mind.
And I come sliding 
where I've been hiding
Out of the heart of a child.

We are all born as animals 
and live the life that animals live: 
we sleep, eat, reproduce, and fight. 
There is, however, another order of living, 
which the animals do not know, 
that of awe before the mystery of being, 
the 'mysterium tremendum et fascinans,' 
that can be the root and branch of the spiritual sense of one’s days. 
That is the birth – the Virgin Birth – 
in the heart of a properly human, spiritual life.

Love as passion; love as com-passion… 
in both the individual is torn out of himself 
and opened to an experience of rediscovered identity 
in a larger, more abiding format.

If you do follow your bliss, 
you put yourself on a kind of track 
that has been there all the while 
waiting for you, 
and the life you ought to be living 
is the one you are living

The hero's journey is a symbol that binds 
in the original sense of the word, 
two distant ideas: 
the spiritual quest of the ancients; 
with the modern search for identity.

God is a metaphor 
for that which transcends all levels of intellectual thought. 
It's as simple as that.

There are some things so serious 
you have to laugh at them.

Freedom is what you do 
with what's been done to you.

Poetry is not the thing said but a way of saying it. 
The intellect is not the fount of poetry, 
may hinder its production, 
and cannot even be trusted to recognise poetry when it is produced. 
Art is not, like science, a logic of references 
but a release from references and rendition of immediate experience: 
a presentation of forms, images, or ideas
in such a way that they will communicate,
not primarily a thought or even a feeling, 
but an impact.

There is no hope unmingled with fear, 
and no fear unmingled with hope.

I don't have to have faith. 
I have experience.

Equipped with his five senses, 
man explores the universe around him 
and calls the adventure Science.

Science is a way of thinking 
much more than it is a body of knowledge.

There is an old standard saying about the arts: 
'You need to learn all the rules, and then forget them' ... 
In writing a book, 
you are moving along on the wave of your inspiration and intuition, 
and then you come to a difficult passage, 
an area you have to cover in order to get from here to there, 
and your momentum stops. 
That’s when you have to bring in the rules.
