That which is false troubles the heart, but truth brings joyous tranquility.
Stay with friends who support you in these. Talk with them about sacred texts, and how you are doing, and how they are doing, and keep your practices together.
Indeed envy is a defect; worse than any other.
God turns you from one feeling to another and teaches by means of opposites, so that you will have two wings to fly, not one.
Travelers, it is late. Life's sun is going to set. During these brief days that you have strength, be quick and spare no effort of your wings.
On the way there is no harder pass than this: fortunate is he who does not carry envy as a companion.
The sword of reality is the saint's protection.
Don't let your throat tighten with fear. Take sips of breath all day and night, before death closes your mouth.
Looking up gives light, although at first it makes you dizzy.
