“Greed is a fat demon with a small mouth and whatever you feed it is never enough.”
Janwillem van de Wetering

“What is first seen as a loss is now seen as a gain. For he finds solitude, not in far off, quite places; he creates it out of himself, spreads it around him, wherever he may be, because he loves it and slowly he ripens in this tranquility. For the inner process is beginning to unfold, stillness is extraordinarily important.”
Janwillem van de Wetering

“Читать не вредно, но чтение не должно превращать твою жизнь в жизнь другого человека.”
