“In the world of the dreamer there was solitude:

all the exaltations and joys came in the moment of preparation for living.

They took place in solitude.

 

But with action came anxiety,

and the sense of insuperable effort made to match the dream,

 

and with it came weariness,

discouragement,

and the flight into solitude again.

 

And then in solitude,

in the opium den of remembrance,

the possibility of pleasure again.”

[ Anaïs Nin ]

“Prayer is not asking.

It is a longing of the soul.

It is daily admission of one’s weakness.

It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.”

[ Mahatma Gandhi ]
