No man is great enough or wise enough for any of us to surrender our destiny to. The only way in which anyone can lead us is to restore to us the belief in our own guidance.

The real enemy can always be met and conquered, or won over. Real antagonism is based on love, a love which has not recognized itself.
The dreamer whose dreams are non-utilitarian has no place in this world. In this world the poet is anathema, the thinker a fool, the artist an escapist, the man of vision a criminal.
Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such.
Our own physical body possesses a wisdom which we who inhabit the body lack. We give it orders which make no sense.
One has to be a lowbrow, a bit of a murderer, to be a politician, ready and willing to see people sacrificed, slaughtered, for the sake of an idea, whether a good one or a bad one.
One's destination is never a place, but rather a new way of looking at things.
Art is only a means to life, to the life more abundant. It is not in itself the life more abundant. It merely points the way, something which is overlooked not only by the public, but very often by the artist himself. In becoming an end it defeats itself.
Art teaches nothing, except the significance of life.
Confusion is a word we have invented for an order which is not yet understood.
The world is not to be put in order; the world is order, incarnate. It is for us to harmonize with this order.
The real leader has no need to lead -- he is content to point the way.
