Spirituality needs to be tough and substantial

Angelfire offers 19 quotes by Thomas Moore, most of them taken from his book The Re-Enchantment of Everyday Life. Enjoy the excerpts and the "keywords" associated with each passage (while excusing the typographical errors). A Barque favourite:
"I believe strongly that our personal emotional problems are all spiritual in nature and require a spiritual, not a psychological, response. But the spirituality we seek out for deep and ingrained problems had better be tough and substantial. Otherwise, our spirituality will only increase our problems and give merely the illusion of healing." — Thomas Moore, "The Alchemist's Retort", Spirituality and Health, Spring 2001
