George Ivanovich Gurdjieff

When you do a thing, do it with the whole self. One thing at a time. Now I sit here and eat. For me nothing exists in the world except this food, this table. I eat with the whole attention. So you must do—in everything.

George Ivanovich Gurdjieff, quoted in James Moore, Gurdjieff, Dorset, 1991, p. 261
