Over the past twenty years, psychotherapist and author David Richo has been gathering powerful quotations from many authors and traditions, quotations that have both given him comfort and challenged him to grow. Now, he has decided to share this very personal collection with fellow seekers. He invites each of us to use these sparks of illumination as he does, as springboards for meditation, reflection and the deepening of our spiritual life. David Richo, PhD is a retreat leader, widely read author, and psychotherapist in Santa Barbara and San Francisco. He is the author of many books, including: Catholic Means Universal: Integrating Spirituality and Religion (Crossroad, 2000) and The Sacred Heart of the World: Restoring Mystical Devotion to Our Spiritual Life (Paulist Press, 2007).
