Quote – Hope & Fear

“Where there is hope, there is fear. When you hope for a result, there is some degree of fear of not getting it; or if you succeed in gaining it, there is the fear of losing it. So fear is a subtle but active element of hope.”

The Way of Non-attachment


I like to reread books that had a profound effect on me the first time I read them. This is one of those books.

It was published in 1975. It seems to be one of those gems that slipped under the radar. If it was published now, I’m sure it would be a best-seller.

Highly recommended if you have a mind that thinks.
