There are two ways of seeing: with the body and with the soul. The body’s sight can sometimes forget, but the soul remembers forever.
The body – the cage – is everything of the most respectable – but through the bars, the wild animal looks out.
In moments of crisis one is never fighting against an external enemy, but always against one’s own body.
Your body is only clothing. Your flesh will wither, but you are your heart and mind, and they do not change except to grow stronger.
