There is only one corner of the Universe you can be certain of improving and that is your own Self.    Aldus Huxley

"Give up the extremes, follow the Middle Path and everything will be clear"   BUDDHA

The strength of a nation derives from the integrity of the home.  The superior man is modest in his speech but exceeds in his actions. A man should practice what he preaches, but a man should also preach what he practices. I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand. Don't do to others what you would not want yourself. Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it. Real knowledge is to know the extent of one's ignorance. A man who does not plan long ahead will find trouble right at his door. They must often change, who would be constant in happiness or wisdom.   Confucius

No legacy is so rich as honesty   William Shakespeare

The heart of a fool is in his mouth but the mouth of a wise man is in his heart   Benjamin Franklin

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard of it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.   BUDDHA

Mankind must put an end to war, or war will put an end to Mankind   John F. Kennedy

"Heaven, when is about to place a great responsibility on a man, always first tests his resolution, wears out his sinews and bones with toil, exposes his body to starvation, subjects him to extreme poverty, frustrates his efforts so as to stimulate his mind, toughen his nature and make good his deficiencies. Men for the most part can mend their ways only after they made mistakes. Only when they are frustrated in mind and in their deliberations can they stand up anew. Only when their intentions become visible on their countenances and audible in their voices can they be understood by others. As a rule, a state without law-abiding families and trustworthy Gentlemen on the one hand, and, on the other, without the threat of external aggression, will perish. Only then do we realize that anxiety and distressed lead to life and that ease and comfort end indeath."   Mencius

Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood   Helen Keller

Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.   Helen Keller

I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.   John F. Kennedy

I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think.   Socrates

Man has always sacrificed truth to his vanity, comfort and advantage. He lives by make believe   W.Somerset Maugham

Consciously or unconsciously, everyone of us does render some services or other. If we cultivate the habit of doing this service deliberately, our desire for service will steadily grow stronger, and will make, not only our own happiness, but that of the world at large   Mahatma Gandhi

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in dying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man   George Bernard Shaw

Any man who is under 30, and is not a liberal, has no heart; and any man who is over 30, and is not conservative, has no brains.    Winston Churchill

People say "I want peace." If you remove I {ego}, and your want {desire}, you are left with peace   Satya Sai Baba

The unfortunate thing about this world is that the good habits are much easier to give up than the bad ones    W.Somerset Maugham

"What our duty now is to reinforce that Buddha mind, or take away what is covering it. We need to take away the ruins, the stories of a thousand years. We have to be spiritual archaeologists. We have to dig out our Buddha mind from the burials of all our emotions."   Tulku Thubten Rinpoche

We think we are human beings who occasionally have spiritual experiences when actually we are spiritual beings who occasionally have human experiences.   Deepak Chopra

We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects.   Herman Melville

We must learn our limits. We are all something, but none of us are everything.   Blaise Pascal

Most people seek after what they do not possess and are enslaved by the very things they want to acquire.    Anwar El-Sadat

"Life's like a box of chocolate, you never know which one you'll get."   Forrest Gump

"Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own house. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbour.... Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting."   Mother Teresa

"Science is nothing but trained and organized common sense."   Thomas Huxley

We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.   Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

You can't shake hands with a clenched fist.   Indira Gandhi

God does not play dice with the universe.

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one

Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind

A human being is a part of the whole, called by us Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest--a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole nature in its beauty.

"Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former."

The further the spiritual evolution of mankind advances, the more certain it seems to me that the path to genuine religiosity does not lie through the fear of life, and the fear of death, and blind faith, but through striving after rational knowledge.

The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources

Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who read too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.

"Everyone who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced, that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the Universe -a spirit vastly superior to that of man, and one in the face of which, we with our modest powers must feel humble."

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of the marvellous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity

"The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift."

"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven."   Matthew

Violence as a way of achieving racial justice is both impractical and immoral. It is impractical because it is a descending spiral ending in destruction for all. The old law of an eye for an eye leaves everyone blind. It is immoral because it seeks to humiliate the opponent rather than win his understanding; it seeks to annihilate rather than convert. Violence is immoral because it thrives on hatred rather than love. It destroys community and makes brotherhood impossible. It leaves society in monologue rather than dialogue. Violence ends by defeating itself. It creates bitterness in the survivors and brutality in the destroyers.   Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

It is a puzzling thing. The Truth knocks on the door and you say, 'Go away, I'm looking for the Truth' and so it goes away puzzling.   Robert M. Pirsig
