Sayings From The Gurdjieff Work

Sayings from the Gurdjieff Work is a thought-provoking collection of well over 1200 unique quotations that offer deep insights into the teachings and philosophy of Gurdjieff himself and his teaching. It contains a bewildering range of quotations that touch on a variety of topics: self-knowledge, psychology, the idiots, consciousness, objective science, and man’s role in both the world and the cosmos. 

Each entry has been selected for its clarity and depth, and its ability to inspire readers to reflect on their own lives and their personal endeavors. Aside from the many quotes from Gurdjieff, there are chapters devoted to the words of A. R. Orage, C. S. Nott, P.D. Ouspensky, Jeanne de Salzmann, Maurice Nicoll, Jane Heap and Rodney Collin – plucked either from their writings or from the accounts of people who knew them. It also includes quotations (usually of Gurdjieff himself) from the writings of A. L. Staveley, Rina Hands, Katheryn Hulme, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Bernard Metz, Fritz Peters, Loise March, Henri Tracol, Henriette Lannes, J G Bennet and Michel Conge.

It provides a complete list of all the quotations that Gurdjieff attributed to Mullah Nassr Eddin – not just those from Beelzebub’s Tales to His Grandson, but also those from The 1931 Manuscript and Meetings With Remarkable Men.

It is likely to become a natural part of any spiritual library or collection.
