„You will not be, you cannot be, satisfied with anything less than Self-knowledge. You, as feeling-and-desire, are the responsible doer of your Triune Self; from what you have made for yourself as your destiny you must learn two great lessons which all experiences of life are to teach. These lessons are:
:What to do,
What not to do.
You may put these lessons off for as many lives as you please, or learn them as soon as you will — that is for you to decide, but in the course of time you will learn them.“
— Harold W. Percival Barbadian writer 1868 - 1953
