|Here's four great quotes that came across my screen in the last few days. Enjoy! Ponder! Learn? I hope they help you.|
Not only is another world possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.
-- Arundhati Roy
How is one to live a moral and compassionate existence when one is fully aware of the blood, the horror inherent in life, when one finds darkness not only in one's culture but within oneself? If there is a stage at which an individual life becomes truly adult, it must be when one grasps the irony in its unfolding and accepts responsibility for a life lived in the midst of such paradox.
-- Barry Lopez:
Many people have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.
-- Helen Keller
"He insulted me, he struck me, he cheated me, he robbed me": those who are caught in resentful thoughts never find peace. "He insulted me, he struck me, he cheated me, he robbed me": those who give up resentful thoughts surely find peace. For hatred does not cease by hatred at any time: hatred ceases by love. This is an unalterable law. There are those who forget that death comes to all. For those who remember, quarrels come to an end.
-- The Buddha
