QUOTATIONSSelection of quotes from the Gurdjieff Literature

“Read each of my written expositions thrice:
First—at least as you have already become mechanized to read all your contemporary books and newspapers;
Second—as if you were reading aloud to another person;
And only third—try to fathom the gist of my writings.

Only then will you be able to count upon forming your own impartial judgment, proper to yourself alone, on my writings. And only then can my hope be actualized that according to your understanding you will obtain the specific benefit for yourself which I anticipate, and which I wish for you with all my being.”

— G. I. Gurdjieff, All and Everything: Beelzebub’s Tales to His Grandson
