5. "Until you've got your mouth full of cocaine, you don't know what kissing is. One kiss goes on from phase to phase like one of those novels by Balzac and Zola and Romain Rolland and D. H.

7. "D. H. Lawrence described our Western culture as being like a great uprooted tree with its roots in the air. We are perishing for lack of fulfillment of our greater needs, he wrote, we are cut off from the great sources of our inward nourishment and renewal.

Our greater needs are met in relating lovingly with each other, relating with full presence to each moment, relating to the beauty and pain that is within and around us."
