“By health I mean the power to live a full, adult, living, breathing life in close contact with what I love — the earth and the wonders thereof — the sea — the sun.
All that we mean when we speak of the external world.
I want to enter into it, to be part of it, to live in it, to learn from it, to lose all that is superficial and acquired in me and to become a conscious direct human being.
I want, by understanding myself, to understand others. I want to be all that I am capable of becoming so that I may be a child of the sun.
Warm, eager, living life — to be rooted in life — to learn, to desire to know, to feel, to think, to act….
That is what I want.
And nothing less.”
