“One’s career, like marriage and parenting, is a prime vehicle for the projection of 1) identity, which is thought to be confirmed through the visible mastery of a body of expertise; 2) nurturance, that one will be fed by being productive; and 3) transcendence, that one will overcome the pettiness of the spirit through successive achievements. When these projections dissolve , and the dissatisfaction with how one is using one’s life energy can no longer be displaced, then one is in the Middle Passage.” 
— James Hollis

"There are some who think this man mad, but I prefer the madness of this man to the sanity of others."

“Lord, when you send the rain think about it, please, a little? Do not get carried away by the sound of falling water, the marvelous light on the falling water. I am beneath that water. It falls with great force and the light Blinds me to the light.”

“Oui, mais ça ne fait rien si on a de la bonne volonté. Nous avons déjà constaté que rien n’est plus important que l’erreur et qu’il n’y a rien de pire que de vouloir sans cesse éviter de faire des erreurs, que de dire sans cesse :  aha, d’abord ça, et puis après, plus tard je ferai ça quand je saurai tout. Dans ce cas je ne saurai jamais rien. Il faut que je fonce, il faut que je me jette à l’eau : ce n’est que dans l’eau que l’on apprend à nager. En avant !, et alors on apprend, on fait des erreurs et faire des erreurs amène à se corriger ou bien on se cherche des maîtres...”
