"Your task? To work with all the passion of your being to acquire an inner light."
"Love is of all passions the strongest, for it attacks simultaneously the head, the heart and the senses."
"And the point is, is it possible for the mind to be totally free from suffering and yet not become indifferent, callous, irresponsible, but to have that passion, the intensity, the energy that freedom brings, freedom from suffering."
"Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence. Love others as well as you love yourself."
"Man has lost one quality, the quality of zestfulness. And without zest, what is life? Just waiting for death? It can't be anything else. Only with zest you do live; otherwise you vegetate."
