Ultimately, what defines the ‘cult of optimism’ and the culture of positive thinking – even in its most mystically tinged, New Age forms – is that it abhors a mystery. It seeks to make things certain, to make happiness permanent and final. And yet this kind of happiness – even if you do manage to achieve it – is shallow and unsatisfying. The greatest benefit of negative capability – the true power of negative thinking – is that it lets the mystery back in. — Oliver Burkeman

The perfect mystic is not an ecstatic devotee lost in contemplation of Oneness, nor a saintly recluse shunning all commerce with mankind, but "the true saint" goes in and out amongst the people and eats and sleeps with them and buys and sells in the market and marries and takes part in social intercourse, and never forgets God for a single moment. — Abu-Sa'id Abul-Khayr

Fear is not a good teacher. The lessons it teaches are tainted by its own toxicity. — Martha C. Nussbaum

Those of us who ask little of life, get little. Those who ask much, get much, but those who ask for too much get nothing. — Thomas Phelps
