#1 All God wants of man is a peaceful heart.
#2 Do exactly what you would do if you felt most secure.
#3 The price of inaction is far greater than the cost of making a mistake.
#4 To be full of things is to be empty of God. To be empty of things is to be full of God.
#5 What a man takes in by contemplation, that he pours out in love.
#6 What we plant in the soil of contemplation, we shall reap in the harvest of action.
#7 If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.
#8 You may call God love, you may call God goodness. But the best name for God is compassion.
#9 There is no need to look for God here or there. He is no farther away than the door of your own heart.
#10 Truly, it is in darkness that one finds the light, so when we are in sorrow, then this light is nearest of all to us.
#11 Love is as strong as death, as hard as Hell. Death separates the soul from the body, but love separates all things from the soul.
#12 A human being has so many skins inside, covering the depths of the heart. We know so many things, but we don't know ourselves! Why, thirty or forty skins or hides, as thick and hard as an ox's or bear's, cover the soul. Go into your own ground and learn to know yourself there.
