"It seems to me that if people knew how very difficult living was for me, they would more easily forgive me all the evil things that I did and all the good things that I missed to do and they might even feel sorry for me."
"And then the death will come. The great parting, but the least painful of all the goodbyes we ever knew. For in death, only one shall grieve. And so far we have always, at every parting, grieved together."
"Between the fear that something would happen and the hope that still it wouldn’t, there is much more space than one thinks. On that narrow, hard, bare and dark space a lot of us spend their lives."
"Being afraid of people means doing wrong to God. The fear of people might have its source in our former sin to God’s principle. A man with a living soul logically shouldn’t be afraid of people or anything human."
