"The definition of being a modern person is to examine yourself, to reflect on yourself and to be a self-knowledgeable person."
"It's something for a child to be introduced to the Meeting...this time when you are no longer in first day of school, but you actually come and join the Meeting. And my grandmother was trying to tell me what you did. So her explanation to me was you went inside to greet the light. And this idea, to go inside to find that light within, literally, as well as figuratively, was something that really propelled me at the time. I really thought that that's what I should do. Of course, I'm still trying to figure out exactly what she meant. But I like that quality."
