"I'm talking about equalizing the pressure between outer actions and events which are shattering and devastating to us and then the place where we recompose and reconstruct ourselves, where we finally achieve what Jung called the second birth.

And as a writer I suddenly discovered the enormous radius of influence that one person can have."
