In regard to selecting a Teacher. (In Search of the Miraculous.)

"A man has to wait until he meets a Teacher whose speciality he is able to study, a speciality which suits his tastes, his tendencies, and his abilities." In Search of the Miraculous by P. D. Ouspensky

    "It stands to reason that it is the task of the teacher to see to it that people do not begin to work with
    him for whom his methods or his special subjects will always be alien,incomprehensible, and unattainable."

    "if a man had begun to work with a Teacher whom he cannot follow, then of course, having noticed and realized this, he ought to go and seek another Teacher or work independently, if he is able to do so."

    "In ordinary thinking, people do not distinguish understanding from knowledge.
    They think that greater understanding depends on greater knowledge. Therefore they
    accumulate knowledge, or that which they call knowledge, but they do not know how
    to accumulate understanding"
    In Search of the Miraculous by P. D. Ouspensky

    "Today is what it is because yesterday was what it was.
    And if today is like yesterday, tomorrow will be like today. If you want tomorrow to
    be different, you must make today different. If today is simply a consequence of
    yesterday, tomorrow will be a consequence of today in exactly the same way. And if
    one has studied thoroughly what happened yesterday, the day before yesterday, a
    week ago, a year, ten years ago, one can say unmistakably what will and what will not
    happen tomorrow."
