You get your intuition back when you make space for it, when you stop the chattering of the rational mind. The rational mind doesn’t nourish you. You assume that it gives you the truth, because the rational mind is the golden calf that this culture worships, but this is not true.

No amount of description or praise can do justice to Michael Cunningham’s words. My own copy of  The Hours  is underlined and annotated with passages that I come back to year after year.
