“The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek. (Joseph Campbell)”
Gary McAvoy, The Magdalene Reliquary

“But then, the Holy Spirit came to me, and I was reminded of something Saint Augustine said: ‘Seek not to understand that you may believe, but believe that you may understand.”
Gary McAvoy, The Magdalene Reliquary

“I brought in a fragrance consultant to evaluate the most appropriate atmospheric scents for the kind of work we do here. She recommended a gentle blend of sandalwood and lavender, and it has done wonders for staff stress levels, not to mention fewer sick days. Many organizations are doing it now.”
Gary McAvoy, The Magdalene Reliquary

“In Cold Blood is the story of these six people—the [four] Clutters, who died together November 15, 1959, and Perry Smith and Richard Hickock, who were hanged April 14, 1965. And my book is the story of their lives and their deaths. It’s a completely factual account and every word is true.

— Truman Capote, interviewed in A Visit with Truman Capote, Maysles Films, 1966 (alternate title: With Love From Truman).”
