“The angel of the LORD found Hagar near a spring in the desert; it was the spring that is beside the road to Shur. And he said, “Hagar, servant of Sarai, where have you come from, and where are you going?” – Genesis 16: 8-9

“The fundamental premise of all story work is that ‘the past isn’t dead; it’s not even past.’ In other words, your past story is affecting your present life.” – Adam Young

“The greatest and most important problems of life are – in a certain sense – insoluble. They can never be solved, but only outgrown.” – Carl Jung
