"I was having my first experience of what I was destined to come up against in all future attempts at writing: until I had come to some clarity in my own mind regarding the issue at hand, books were completely useless to me. This struggle for clarity went on amid great internal suffering which never gave me a moment's peace day or night."

A street shot from Berlin: "He who seeks the truth, seeks God, whether or not it it is clear." --Edith Stein (my translation, so a little rough)
