Personally, I sense in Bergman a kindred spirit of the highest order. One who lights the road ahead. As if my feelings, my interests were not only reflected back to me in an exotic, more complex, more cohesive form--but projected outward too:
''[Here was] the codification of a rule I have always followed and was to follow from then on: irrespective of everything, you will hold your communion. It is important to the churchgoer, but even more important to you. We shall see if it is important to God. If there is no other god than your hope as such, it is important to that god too."
