It is time for Zorba to start meditating, and it is time for the people who are meditators not to allow themselves to escape from the world... Only in completion is there bliss. Only in completion have you come home.

There is no safe investment. To love is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will be wrung and possibly be broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact youmust give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbiesand little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin ofyour selfishness. But in that casket—safe, dark, motionless, airless—it will change. Itwill not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable and irredeemable. Thealternative to tragedy, or at least the risk of tragedy, is damnation. The only placeoutside of heaven where you can be perfectly safe from all the dangers and perturbations oflove is hell.
