Karen Armstrong
“there is no ascent to the heights without prior descent into darkness, no new life without some form of death.”
Karen Armstrong, A Short History of Myth

Karen Armstrong
“Look into your own heart, discover what it is that gives you pain and then refuse, under any circumstance whatsoever, to inflict that pain on anybody else.”
Karen Armstrong

Jack London
“I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.”
Jack London

Thomas Merton
“The beginning of love is the will to let those we love be perfectly themselves, the resolution not to twist them to fit our own image.”
Thomas Merton, The Way of Chuang Tzu

Karen Armstrong
“We are meaning-seeking creatures. Dogs, as far as we know, do not agonise about the canine condition, worry about the plight of dogs in other parts of the world, or try to see their lives from a different perspective. But human beings fall easily into despair, and from the very beginning we invented stories that enabled us to place our lives in a larger setting, that revealed an underlying pattern, and gave us a sense that, against all the depressing and chaotic evidence to the contrary, life had meaning and value”
Karen Armstrong, A Short History of Myth
