Author Quotes

Where the Mystery is present, joy is infinite; where the Mystery has departed, efficacy is exhausted and the spirit disappears.

Have a compassionate heart towards all creatures.

Respect the old and cherish the young. Even insects, grass and trees you must not hurt.

If one is moderate in developing one’s justifiable inclinations, and succeeds in freeing oneself of one’s inhibitions, this will not shorten one’s life span, but increase it. All of these things can be compared to fire and water: only their excessive use is harmful.
