The wish to talk to God is absurd. We cannot talk to one we cannot comprehend – and we cannot comprehend God; we can only believe in Him.
If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.
People who lead a solitary existence always have something in their hearts which they are eager to talk about.[У людей, живущих одиноко, всегда бывает на душе что-нибудь такое, что они охотно бы рассказали.]
People talk to people who perceive nothing, who have open eyes and see nothing; they shall talk to them and receive no answer; they shall adore those who have ears and hear nothing; they shall burn lamps for those who do not see.
Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.
