As swimmers dare to lie face to the sky and water bearns them, as hawks rest upon air and air sustains them, so would I learn to attain freefall, and float into Creator Spiritís deep embrace, knowing no effort earns that all-surrounding grace.
~Denise Levertov quotes

Chained by their attitudes, they are a slave, they have forfeited their freedom. Only a person who risks is free.
~Unknown quotes

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion; If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
~Dalai Lama quotes

The world is moving so fast these days that the man who says it can't be done, is generally interrupted by someone doing it.
~Harry Emerson Fosdick quotes

Example is not the main thing in influencing others. It is the only thing.
~Albert Schweitzer quotes

This above all: to thine own self be true; and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.
~William Shakespeare quotes

The heart that breaks open can contain the whole universe.
~Joanna Macy quotes
Give light and the darkness will disappear of itself.
~Erasmus quotes

Whenever you are to do a thing, though it can never be known but to yourself, ask yourself how you would act were all the world looking at you and act accordingly.
~Thomas Jefferson quotes

When you are not directing your own belief building, managing your own creative concept-construction and shaping your own power of mind, then by default you are acquiescing to the belief systems of others. When other's belief systems are formulated on domination-subordination power paradigms (patterns) that cast you in the subordinating role, you are interacting without or with less power, than is rightfully yours. In such a case, you are in a manner allowing others to use your life as a testing ground for their own beliefs. Such scenarios are often double boomerangs whereby your own misunderstood default ends up assuring others that their own misunderstood error-full beliefs are in fact quite correct; since you seem to have been rendered power-less while they seem to have been rendered power-full.
~Speaker quotes from "The Clothes Closet of Your Dreams"

The question is not whether we will die, but how we will live.
~Joan Borysenko quotes

As it is not proper to cure the eyes without the head; nor the head without the body; so neither is it proper to cure the body without the soul.
~Socrates quotes

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
~Lao Tzu quotes

In the human heart new passions are forever being born; the overthrow of one almost always means the rise of another.
~La Rochefoucauld quotes

Love is such a big word, it should have more letters.
~Kobi Yamada quotes
