Everyone wants to be happy and successful, and to regard himself or herself as a worthwhile human being. What’s so bad about that?” -The Search For Significance student edition p. 5
  6. 6. “Spiritual formation, education of the heart, in other words, requires something more than traditional Western forms of instruction. It requires a mentorship of the heart, a relationship with a teacher of life who is able to convey . . . a way of life that is formed, not merely instructions that are given. It requires a life shared by people who have learned that spiritual music is sung in its own way. To educate the heart requires learning that frees the imagination, prepares ears to listen, focuses eyes to look with attentiveness; it requires an open heart.” (Reese & Anderson, Spiritual Mentoring, p. 17)
