"The supernatural nature of the Kingdom lies off-road. You can’t get there in your Lexus, Cadillac, or Lincoln. If comfort, safety, and dignity are your gods, you will be confined to the pavement of religion and never discover the true beauty of His amazing world that lies just on the other side of the fear of man. There’s a reason that the One sent to guide you into the realms of the Spirit is called the Comforter. If you follow Him, you’re going to need one."
"What makes a genius? The ability to see. To see what? The butterfly in a caterpillar, the eagle in an egg, the saint in a selfish person, life in death, unity in separation, God in the human and human in God and suffering as the form in which the incomprehensibility of God himself appears.”

"I shall have poetry in my life, and I shall also have adventure…lots and lots of adventure. And above all, I shall have love. Love as there has never been in a play. Uncovered, vulnerable, ungovernable. Like a riot in the heart and nothing to be done - come ruin or capture."
