- Reading a book of spiritual wisdom is not like reading a book of history or political analysis - you're not simply absorbing information, you're spending time in the enlightened company of a sage. Appreciate the character and values of the author, as well as their explicit insights. Get to know them as people. Some of the most powerful lessons they have for you might be hidden between the lines.
- Offend in neither word nor deed.
- Just keep coming back and begin again.
