Because it’s the thought of Mecca that keeps me alive. That’s what helps me face these days that are all the same, these mute crystals on the shelves, and lunch and dinner at that same horrible café. I’m afraid that if my dream is realized, I’ll have no reason to go on living.

Practicing in art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You’ll get an enormous reward. You will have created something.

If you really want to hurt your parents, and you don’t have the nerve to be gay, the least you can do is go into the arts. I’m not kidding.

Before, the river had not wanted to be in touch with the true nature of things. It had only wanted to be in touch with birth and death. Now that it had been in touch with the vault of the sky, it became very peaceful and quiet. … Now the river felt the special joy of equanimity. It was not partial to any particular cloud or in the grip of any particular cloud. It could enjoy being with and reflecting every cloud that came through the sky. When a cloud left, the river said, “Goodbye. See you soon,” and it felt a very light heart.
