“So everything is necessary. Every least thing. This is the hard lesson. Nothing can be dispensed with. Nothing despised. Because the seams are hid from us, you see. The joinery. The way in which the world is made. We have no way to know what could be taken away. What omitted. We have no way to tell what might stand and what might fall.”
–Cormac McCarthy (The Crossing)

“Compassion is sometimes the fatal capacity for feeling what it is like to live inside somebody else’s skin. It is the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too.”

“Do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of God no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you the universe is unfolding as it should. There for be at peace with God … whatever your labors and aspirations in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all of its shames drudgery and broken dreams it is still a beautiful world .. be cheerful .. strive to be happy.”
