You have to read the newspaper to know how mad and foolish the world is; how futile is heroism and how momentary the glory. And after reviewing the information it conveys, you throw it aside; it is now a tasteless waste. So too, you should live but once; live such that you are born but once. Do not fall in love with the world so much that your false fascination brings you again and again into this delusive amalgam of joy and grief. Unless you stand back a little, away from entanglement with the world, knowing that it is all a play whose director is God, you are in danger of being too closely involved. Use the world as a training ground for sacrifice, service, expansion of the heart, and cleansing of the emotions. That is the only value it has. (Divine Discourse, Mar 28, 1967)
