From thee stream light and strength to thee rise love and thanks.”

  16. “The fact that we all bear a human countenance and encounter one another as external, physical human beings… this makes us equal on this footing.”
  17. “You have no idea how unimportant is all that the teacher says or does not say on the surface, and how important what he himself is as teacher.”
  18. “When we feel an obligation to test the things we say and to find the boundaries within which what we say has validity, then we are contributing to a real inner consolidation of our human feeling for existence.” 
  19. “If we want to develop inner truthfulness, we must never go further than facts of the outer world speak to us. And we must, strictly speaking, attempt to formulate our words in such a way that we only confirm the facts of the outer sensory world….”
  20. “Each individual is a species unto him/herself.”
