«As soon as beauty is sought not from religion and love, but for pleasure, it degrades the seeker.»
«I believe that today more than ever a book should be sought after even if it has only one great page in it. We must search for fragments, splinters, toenails, anything that has ore in it, anything that is capable of resuscitating the body and the soul.»

«Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the men of old; seek what they sought.»

« I am saying something about the ineffable. I am saying something about the ultimate mystery. You can understand it, yet you can never understand it totally. It is elusive, it escapes. It is within reach, but it is not within grasp. You are always coming closer and closer to it, but you never arrive. And the day you arrive, then you are no more there; the distinction between the seeker and the sought disappears. Then you are it. That art thou -- then you are it! »

«All mankind lives and each man strives by codes of conduct mutually agreed. Perhaps these codes are good, perhaps they?re bad, it?s only evident they?re codes. Mores bind the race. Coaction then occurs. Thought and motion in accord. A oneness then of purpose and survival so results. But now against that code there is transgression. And so because the code was held, whatever code it was, and man sought comfort in man?s company, he held back his deed and so entered then the bourne in which no being laughs or has a freedom in his heart.»

«He was a scholar, and a ripe and good one;Exceedingly wise, fair-spoken and persuading;Lofty and sour to them that loved him not;But to those men that sought him sweet as summer.»
