“Life will always be sorrowful. We can't change it, but we can change our attitude toward it.”
Joseph Campbell, A Joseph Campbell Companion: Reflections on the Art of Living

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

“We need myths that will identify the individual not with his local group but with the planet.”

“Awe is what moves us forward.”
Joseph Campbell, A Joseph Campbell Companion: Reflections on the Art of Living

Karen Armstrong
“In the tenth century BC, the priests of India devised the Brahmodya competition, which would become a model of authentic theological discourse. The object was to find a verbal formula to define the Brahman, the ultimate and inexpressible reality beyond human understanding. The idea was to push language as far as it would go, until participants became aware of the ineffable. The challenger, drawing on his immense erudition, began the process by asking an enigmatic question and his opponents had to reply in a way that was apt but equally inscrutable. The winner was the contestant who reduced the others to silence. In that moment of silence, the Brahman was present - not in the ingenious verbal declarations but in the stunning realisation of the impotence of speech. Nearly all religious traditions have devised their own versions of this exercise. It was not a frustrating experience; the finale can, perhaps, be compared to the moment at the end of the symphony, when there is a full and pregnant beat of silence in the concert hall before the applause begins. The aim of good theology is to help the audience to live for a while in that silence.”
Karen Armstrong, The Case for God
