„She helped me feel like I could take risks with the music, which you’re often told not to do. When you watch her, you see that it makes a difference.

„The truth is, indeed, that love is the threshold of another universe.“

—  Pierre Teilhard De Chardin French philosopher and Jesuit priest 1881 - 1955

"The Evolution of Chastity" (1934), as translated by René Hague in Toward the Future (1975)
Context: The truth is, indeed, that love is the threshold of another universe. Beyond the vibrations with which we are familiar, the rainbow-like range of its colours is still in full growth. But, for all the fascination that the lower shades have for us, it is only towards the "ultra" that the creation of light advances. It is in these invisible and, we might almost say, immaterial zones that we can look for true initiation into unity. The depths we attribute to matter are no more than the reflection of the peaks of spirit.
