“I find working for money to be the wasteland – doing something that somebody else wants instead of the thing that is my next step. I have been guided all along by a strong revulsion from any sort of action that does not correspond to the impulse of my own wish. The person of noble heart acts spontaneously, and will avoid the wasteland, the world of “Thou Shalt.”
Joseph Campbell, in “Reflections on the Art of Living: A Joseph Campbell Companion” by Diane K. Osbon

“There’s a part of me, that speaks to the heart of me
Though sometimes it’s hard to see,
It’s never far from me
Alive in eternity
That nothing can kill.”
Jackson Browne, in “The Fuse” from the CD “The Pretender”
