In my creature impatience I am often caused to wish that there were some way to bring modern Christians into a deeper spiritual life painlessly by short, easy lessons; but such wishes are vain. No shortcut exists. God has not bowed to our nervous haste nor embraced the methods of our machine age. It is well that we accept the hard truth now: The man who would know God must give time to Him.
I’ve always wanted to be liked. It grieved me that I was treated with indifference. Left an orphan by Fortune, I wanted—like all orphans—to be the object of someone’s affection.

Pain in life is inevitable but suffering is not. Pain is what the world does to you, suffering is what you do to yourself [by the way you think about the ‘pain’ you receive].

And I felt like Eastern thought really spoke to me. Because it isn’t trying to cover up the pain in life; it’s trying to deal with it and overcome it in an intelligent way. I think the reason I love Eastern thought so much, and mysticism in general – but especially Buddhism – is because it seems to me an attempt to look life squarely in the face, as it is.
