Four quotes by Anthony de Mello

Anthony de Mello, also known as Tony de Mello (4 September 1931 – 2 June 1987), was an Indian Jesuit priest and psychotherapist. A spiritual teacher, writer, and public speaker, de Mello wrote several books on spirituality and hosted numerous spiritual retreats and conferences. He continues to be known for his storytelling which drew from the various mystical traditions of both East and West and for introducing many people in the West to mindfulness-based practices he sometimes called “awareness prayer”.
 No one is exempt from talking nonsense; the great misfortune is to do it solemnly. 
 Obedience keeps the rules, love knows when to break them. 
 People kill for money or for power but the most ruthless murderers are those who kill for their ideas. 
 When you come to see you are not as wise today as you thought you were yesterday, you are wiser today.
