Alice Bailey
The experience of my five years made me feel that things were futile so I decided that if I bumped down the stone kitchen steps from top to bottom I would probably be dead at the end. I did not succeed As I went on in life, I made two other efforts to put an end to things, only to discover it is a very difficult thing to commit suicide. I tried to smother myself with sand when I was around eleven years old, but sand in one's mouth, nose and eyes is not comfortable and I decided to postpone the happy day.
Bailey quotes
I heard what I thought was a clear note of music which sounded from the sky, through the hill and in me. Then I heard a voice which said, "There are some books which it is desired should be written for the public. You can write them. Will you do so?" Without a moment's notice I said, "Certainly not. I'm not a darned psychic and I don't want to be drawn into anything like that."
