A Quote by P.D. Ouspensky on ouspensky, gurdjieff, and fourth way

Two things can get people to make efforts: if people want to get something, or if they want to get rid of something. Only, in ordinary conditions, without knowledge, people do not know what they can get rid of or what they can gain.

P.D. Ouspensky

A Quote by George Gurdjieff on gurdjieff, measure, conditions, reality, and being

  Listen, you have now found the conditions in which the desire of your heart can become the reality of your being.  Stay here, until you acquire a force in you that nothing can destroy. Then you'll need to go back into life, and there you will measure yourself constantly with forces which will show you your place.

George Gurdjieff (1873 - 1949)
