What you encounter, recognize or discover depends to a large degree on the quality of your approach…When we approach with reverence, great things decide to approach us…When we walk on the earth with reverence, beauty will decide to trust us. -John O’Donohue, Beauty: The Invisible Embrace

There is only one valid way to partake of the universe–whether the partaking is of food and water, the love of another, or, indeed, a pill. That way is characterized by reverence–a reverence born of a felt sense of participation in the universe, a kinship with all and with all matter. -Larry Dossey

Life must have its sacred moments and its holy places. We need the infinite, the limitless, the uttermost–all that can give the heart a deep and strengthening peace. -A. Powell Davies, Without Apology: Collected Meditations on Liberal Religion

Pursue some path, however narrow and crooked, in which you can walk with love and reverence. -Henry David Thoreau
