QUOTES (XII)

“To be creative means to be in love with life.

You can only be creative if you love life enough 

that you want to enhance its beauty,

you want to bring a little more music to it,

a little more poetry to it,

a little more dance to it.” 

Osho

“The garden of the world has no limits except in your mind.”

Rumi

“There is nothing mind can do

that cannot be better done in the mind’s immobility and thought-free stillness.

When mind is still,

then truth gets her chance to be heard in the purity of silence.”

Sri Aurobindo

“If in our daily life we can smile,

if we can be peaceful and happy,

not only we, but everyone will profit from it.

This is the most basic peace work.” 

Thich Nhat Hanh

“Ignorance is always afraid of change.”

Jawaharial Nehru

“Impossibility is only the sum of greater unrealized possibilities.

It veils an advance stage and a yet unaccomplished journey.”

It is we who put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark.”

“What we can or cannot do,

what we consider possible or impossible,

It is more like a function of our beliefs about who we are.”

“Bring into play the almighty power within you,

so that on the stage of life you can fulfill your high destined role.” 

Paramahansa Yogananda

“This silence, this moment, every moment,

if it’s genuinely inside you,brings what you need.

There’s nothing to believe.

Only when I stopped believing in myself did I come to this beauty.

Sit quietly and listen for a voice that will say, “Be more silent”.

Die and be quiet.

Quietness is the surest sign that you have died.

Your old life was a frantic running from silence.

Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking.

Live in silence.”

Rumi

“Our task is not to seek for LOVE.

It is to seek for all the barriers that we have built against it.”

Even a little effort towards spiritual awareness

will protect you from the greatest fear.”

Bhagavad Gita

“Happiness is your nature.

It is not wrong to desire it.

What is wrong is seeking it outside when it is inside.” 

Ramana Maharshi

“Do you know what you are?

You are a manuscript of divine letter.

You are a mirror reflecting a noble face.

This universe is not outside you.

Look inside yourself; everything you want, you are already that.”

Rumi

“Courage is a love affair with the UNKNOWN.”

Osho

“There is no path to Truth.

Truth must be discovered, but there is no formula for its discovery.

What is formulated is not true.

You must set out on the uncharted sea, and the uncharted sea is yourself,

but not according to any plan or pattern, for then there is no discovery.

Discovery brings joy – not the remembered, comparative joy, but joy that is ever new.

Self knowledge is the beginning of wisdom

in whose tranquility and silence there is the Immeasurable. 

Jiddu Krishnamurti

“Many people, especially ignorant people,

want to punish you for speaking the truth,

for being correct, for being you.

Never apologize for being correct or for being years ahead of your time.

If you are right and you know it, speak your mind.

Speak your mind even if you are a minority of one.

The truth is still the truth.”

Mohandas Gandhi

“The appearance  of things changes according to the emotions,

and thus we see magic and beauty in them,

while the magic and beauty are really in ourselves.” 

Kahlil Gibran

“Be vigilant; guard your mind against negative thoughts.” 

Buddha

“Life’s challenges are not supposed to paralyze you,

they are supposed to help you discover who you are.”

Bernice Johnson Reagon

“I am inviting you to go deeper, to learn and practice so that you become someone who has a great capacity for being solid, calm and without fear, because our society  needs people like you who have these qualities. And your children, our children need people like you, in order to go on, in order to become solid and calm and without fear.”

Thich Nhat Hanh

“Wherever you are, be there totally.

If you find your “here and now” intolerable

and it makes you unhappy,

you have three options:

remove yourself from the situation, change it or accept it totally.

If you want to take responsibility for your life,

you must choose one of those three options and you must choose now.

Then accept the consequences.”

Eckhart Tolle

“Among the things you can give and still keep are:

your word, a smile and a grateful heart.”

Zig Ziglar 

“Many marriages would be better if the husband and wife

clearly understood that they are on the same side.”

Zig Ziglar 

“Anger will never disappear

so long as thoughts of resentment are cherished in the mind.”

Buddha

“Leaders spend 5% of their time on the problem

and 95% of their time on the solution.

Get over it and crush it.”

Tony Robbins

“Some  men see things as they are and say : “Why?” .

I dream of things that never were and say “Why not?”

George Bernard Shaw

“Concerning all acts of initiative and creation

there is one elementary truth –

that the moment one definitely commits oneself,

then Providence moves too.”

Goethe
