Gentleman, he said,
I don’t need your organization, I’ve shined your shoes,
I’ve moved your mountains and marked your cards
But Eden is burning, either brace yourself for elimination
Or else your hearts must have the courage for the changing of the guards.
The Buddhists say there are 149 ways to God. I’m not looking for God, only for myself, and that is far more complicated. I have met a great many pilgrims on their way towards God and I wonder why they have chosen to look for him rather than themselves.
- Jeanette Winterson
