Seven of the best book quotes from Reverend Mother
  1. #1
    “The willow submits to the wind and prospers until one day it is many willows—a wall against the wind. This is the willow’s purpose.”
  2. #2
    “The mystery of life isn’t a problem to solve, but a reality to experience.”
  3. #3
    “He felt an offense against what his mother called his instinct for rightness. It wasn’t that Reverend Mother lied to him. She obviously believed what she said. It was something deeper, something tied to his terrible purpose.”
  4. #4
    “A process cannot be understood by stopping it. Understanding must move with the flow of the process, must join it and flow with it.”
  5. #5
    “I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
  6. #6
    “For the first time, Paul allowed himself to think about the real possibility of defeat—not thinking about it out of fear or because of warnings such as that of the old Reverend Mother, but facing up to it because of his own assessment of the situation.”
  7. #7
    ″[Paul] recalled another thing the [Reverend Mother] had said about a world being the sum of many things—the people, the dirt, the growing things, the moons, the tides, the suns—the unknown sum called nature, a vague summation without any sense of the now.”
