How do you feel today?    I feel ...

I've found that the chief difficulty for most people was to realize that they had really heard new things: that is things that they had never heard before. They kept translating what they heard into their habitual language. They had ceased to hope and believe there might be anything new.

This quote is about hope.

A bit about Peter Demianovich Ouspensky ...

Peter D. Ouspensky (March 5, 1878, Moscow - October 2, 1947, England), (Pyotr Demianovich Ouspenskii, also Uspenskii or Uspensky) was a Russian philosopher with an analytic and mystical bent who combined geometry and psychology in his discussion of higher dimensions of existence. During his years in Moscow he wrote for several newspapers, and was particularly interested in the then fashionable idea of the fourth dimension. He is best known, however, for his expositions of the early work of the Russian mystic, G.I. Gurdjieff.
