Some of these passages, such as the Prayer of St. Francis, the Buddha's "Twin Verses", and the Twenty-third Psalm, are familiar and well loved, others may be fresh discoveries - all are beautiful. Short texts, easy to read and memorize, are interspersed with longer ones, which the reader can study in depth."
