This book is so full of gems it requires reading a page or a paragraph at a time and spending time digesting it. Here is one of my favorite nuggets: "We can do something towards tracking down some of the continual evasions of the ego by uncovering our fear of humiliation. From this fear of degradation in our own eyes or in the eyes of others, real or imagined, comes a dead weight of moods and depression. For the truly humble person no humiliation exixts." We all need such wise mentors to guide us.
