"One cannot begin to face the real difficulties of the life of prayer and meditation unless one is first perfectly content to be a beginner and really experience himself as one who knows little or nothing and has a desperate need to learn the bare rudiments.

But let us be convinced of the fact that we will never be anything else but beginners."
Btw, Coldplay are currently offering the free track 'Death Will Never Conquer' on their site.
