Pain is one of the sure signs that contemplation is happening. Contemplation may lead eventually to bliss, but first it will give us the pain of knowing that some of our dearest convictions are shallow, inadequate, wrong.

-Parker J. Palmer

Who among us is ready to be cast out of the garden of self-deception and into that cold, hard world of the all-seeing eye?

-Reed Konsler

It's awfully foggy in the garden of self deception. Can I at least have a flashlight?
