Anything you do not give freely and abundantly becomes lost to you. You open your safe and find ashes - Annie Dillard
Humble people are able to tolerate an honest look at themselves, and non-defensively accept their weaknesses alongside their strengths - Pelin Kesebir
There are more things … likely to frighten us than there are to crush us; we suffer more often in imagination than in reality - Seneca
THE MAGIC OF CONVERSATION
My private model for intersubjectivity, or communication by speech, or conversation, is amoebas having sex. As you know, amoebas usually reproduce by just quietly going off in a corner and budding, dividing themselves into two amoebas; but sometimes conditions indicate that a little genetic swapping might improve the local crowd, and two of them get together, literally, and reach out to each other and meld their pseudopodia into a little tube or channel connecting them - Ursula K. Le Guin
Make your interests gradually wider and more impersonal, until bit by bit the walls of the ego recede, and your life becomes increasingly merged in the universal life. An individual human existence should be like a river — small at first, narrowly contained within its banks, and rushing passionately past rocks and over waterfalls. Gradually the river grows wider, the banks recede, the waters flow more quietly, and in the end, without any visible break, they become merged in the sea, and painlessly lose their individual being - Bertrand Russell
