„Could we change our attitude, we should not only see life differently, but life itself would come to be different.“

—  Katherine Mansfield

Quoted in A. R. Orage, "Talks with Katherine Mansfield at Fontainebleau," http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:XAR4yD3zcOIJ:www.gurdjieff-bibliography.com/Current/KM_07_2006_02_ORAGE_Talks_with_KM.doc The Century Magazine (November 1924)
Contexto: Could we change our attitude, we should not only see life differently, but life itself would come to be different. Life would undergo a change of appearance because we ourselves had undergone a change of attitude.

„Risk! Risk anything! Care no more for the opinion of others, for those voices. Do the hardest thing on earth for you. Act for yourself. Face the truth.“

„I want, by understanding myself, to understand others.“

—  Katherine Mansfield

Journal entry (14 October 1922), published in The Journal of Katherine Mansfield (1927)
Contexto: By health I mean the power to live a full, adult, living, breathing life in close contact with what I love — the earth and the wonders thereof — the sea — the sun, all that we mean when we speak of the external world. I want to enter into it, to be part of it, to live in it, to learn from it, to lose all that is superficial and acquired in me and to become a conscious, direct human being. I want, by understanding myself, to understand others.

„Everything in life that we really accept undergoes a change. So suffering must become Love. This is the mystery. This is what I must do.“

—  Katherine Mansfield

Journal entry (19 December 1920), published in The Journal of Katherine Mansfield (1927) edited by J. Middleton Murry

„I feel happy — deep down. All is well.“

—  Katherine Mansfield

Entry in her journal (10 October 1922) which she tore out to send to John Middleton Murry, before changing her mind. This later became the last published entry in The Journal of Katherine Mansfield (1927) edited by J. Middleton Murry
Contexto: Warm, eager, living life — to be rooted in life — to learn, to desire to know, to feel, to think, to act. That is what I want. And nothing less. That is what I must try for. … This all sounds very strenuous and serious. But now that I have wrestled with it, it’s no longer so. I feel happy — deep down. All is well.

„I want, by understanding myself, to understand others. I want to be all that I am capable of becoming so that I may be (and here I have stopped and waited and waited and it’s no good — there’s only one phrase that will do) a child of the sun.“

About helping others, about carrying a light and so on, it seems false to say a single word. Let it be at that. A child of the sun.
