"Learn to live with everything that is unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books in a very foreign language. Don't search for the answers now, which could not be given to you, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now, and perhaps someday, far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answers." - Rainer Maria Rilke"

You and I have spoken all these words, but as for the way we have to go, words are no preparation. There is no getting ready, other than grace." - Rumi

"Out beyond ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing there is a field, I'll meet you there." - Rumi"

Being with the Friend means not being who you've been, but being instead, silence. A place, a room, a view." - Rumi

"We must decide it in our hearts once and for all, and then over and over again, that we will never celebrate a victory banquet that does not have a place prepared for our enemies." - Walter Wink
