Spirituality quotes

"This book is a map in words to important territory we all are on now together. It's a collection of pointers that treat the margins as seriously as the noisy center. For change has always happened in the margins, across human history, and it's happening there now. Seismic shifts in common life, as in geophysical reality, being in the spaces and cracks."
-Krista Tippett, Becoming Wise, pg. 1

"There is a crack, a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in."
-Leonard Cohen, Anthem

"I'm a person who listens for a living. I listen for wisdom, and beauty, and for voices not shouting to be heard."
-Krista Tippett, Becoming Wise, p.1

Meaning of life
“There is something infantile in the presumption that somebody else has a responsibility to give your life meaning and point… The truly adult view, by contrast, is that our life is as meaningful, as full and as wonderful as we choose to make it.” 
― Richard DawkinsThe God Delusion

Spiritual longing
"Spiritual longing is a sort of loneliness for an unknown yet deeply perceived presence. Some call the presence God; some call it peace; some call it consciousness; some call it love. Its source rests in the well of our hearts. When we slow down, quiet the mind, and allow ourselves to feel hungry for something we do not understand, we are dipping into the abundant well of spiritual longing."
-Elizabeth Lesser, The New American Spirituality, p. xiv
