"Morning is precious; Morning is essentially private. Morning is when we come to know ourselves in the world again. ... Conversation is good; conversation can be good work; conversation is an absolute necessity; meetings must meet, but all of our verbal conversations depend on a continuous conversation with the real patterns forming in an unspoken way at the center of {ourselves}. We need this intensely personal, private conversation with what we do, or none of the other outer conversations make sense. We need the pattern made known to us again and again in intimate ways that reinforce our sense of being engaged with something real."

- David Whyte, from his book Crossing the Unknown Sea
