The most difficult and complicated part of the writing
by A. B. Yehoshua

The most difficult and complicated part of the writing
process is the beginning.

in the Israeli -
we can give to other people rather than speaking so often of taking,
expanding territory.

Intimate relationships are a gold mine for literature to explore,
to understand, to describe.

I don't think that when Zionism began there was a claim that we were losing -
even in part -
our capacity to contribute to other peoples.
- A. B. Yehoshua

And this is one of the major questions of our lives:
how we keep boundaries,
what permission we have to cross boundaries,
and how we do so.
- A. B. Yehoshua

Instead, we are creating exclusion between the East
and the West instead of creating bridges;
we are contributing to the conflict between East and
West by our stupid desire to have more.

So with truth - there is a certain moment when one can say,
this is the truth and here I put a dot,
a stop, and I go to another thing.

But for a historian, there's never an end to the past.
It can go on and on and on.
- A. B. Yehoshua

We always knew how to honor fallen soldiers.
They were killed for our sake, they went out on our mission.

housewife who got on a bus and never returned?
- A. B. Yehoshua

you aren't even left with the possibility of taking
revenge or punishing anyone;
the terrorist is killed along with his victims,
his blood mixing with theirs.

This is my wish for you:
Comfort on difficult days,
Smiles when sadness intrudes,
Rainbows to follow the clouds,
Laughter to kiss your lips,
Sunsets to warm your heart,
Hugs when spirits sag,

Friendships to brighten your being,
Faith so that you can believe,
Confidence for when you doubt,
Courage to know yourself,
Patience to accept the truth,
Love to complete your life.

to be used by Thee, O Infinite Creator,
in whatever way Thou dost choose
to express Thyself through me.

and that no task is too difficult
or too menial when offered

- Paramahansa Yogananda

Ecstasy is our very nature;
not to be ecstatic is simply unnecessary.
To be ecstatic is natural, spontaneous.
It needs no effort to be ecstatic,
it needs great effort to be miserable.
That's why you look to tired,
because misery is really hard work;
to maintain it is really difficult,
because you are doing something against nature.
- Osho

is not when no one understands you,
it is when you don't understand yourself.

Once you have seen the truth
you must make the decision to let go
of the pain, anger, and resentment you have been holding on to.
This requires you to take action.
If you are attached to your pain, resentment,
and self-righteousness, and addicted to your emotional reactions,
this will be a difficult step for you.
Taking action requires letting go of the very thing
you have been holding on to for so many years.
There is comfort in what we find familiar,
even if we are experiencing pain and suffering.
The pain and suffering itself becomes the familiarity we seek.
It takes absolute faith in yourself
plus courage, will, and discipline to let go.
But once you let go, it will be as if
the weight of the world has been taken off your shoulders.
In this process it is important to forgive
not just the others in our lives, but also ourselves.
For most people, giving ourselves
the gift of forgiveness is very challenging.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

making it difficult for people to get their work done.

destroying the health of the mind.
- Gilbert K. Chesterton

There is a fine line between perseverance and insanity.
At what point have you tried your best,
and it's time to do something different?
It's a balance - a paradox.
If you get in the habit of giving up
as soon as something gets difficult,
your life won't work,
but if you keep tilting at windmills -
madly trying the same thing again and again,
your life also won't work.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The most difficult thing in the world

Every morning I offer my body, my mind and any ability that I posses,

in whatever way Thou dost choose to express Thyself through me.
I know that all work is Thy work, and that no task is too difficult
or too menial when offered to Thee in loving service.
- Paramahansa Yogananda

Pain is a difficult companion. There's no getting around that.
But, if pain is to be a companion, searching and discovering
your own best ways to travel with that pain
will lead you to the joy that you long to have.
They are your paths, your ways and while my experience
and the experiences of others may inspire you,
ultimately it will be the choices you discover
and make for yourself that lead you to certain joy
in the midst of your challenges.
- Mary Anne Radmacher
