“What I really lack is to be clear in my mind what I am to do, not what I am to know, except in so far as a certain understanding must precede every action. The thing is to understand myself, to see what God really wishes me to do; the thing is to find a truth which is true for me, to find the idea for which I can live and die.”

“He isn’t a man who tries to lead others astray; on the contrary he dissuades them from leading such a life. He has tasted its bitterness and puts up with it only because he lives for an idea…Rather I would think of such a master thief as someone who had lost his father early in life and now had only an old mother whom he dearly loves and she him, though she is horrified at her son’s errant ways, while his beloved quite overlooks his bad side…”
