“The longest distance in the universe is the distance from zero to one. In joining the dance, the first follower breaks some kind of social membrane and gives others the courage to follow their hearts.”

“The spiritual life is a life in which we wait, actively present to the moment, trusting that new things will happen to us, new things that are far beyond our own imagination, fantasy, or prediction. That, indeed, is a very radical stance toward life in a world preoccupied with control.”

~ Henri Nouwen

“Like scientists who spend their lives looking through the lens of a high-powered microscope and see only tiny segments but make all sorts of pronouncements about the whole, we think we are seeing accurately. But we are not.”
