Mary Baker Eddy
The recipe for beauty is to have less illusion and more Soul, to retreat from the belief of pain or pleasure in the body into the unchanging calm and glorious freedom of spiritual harmony.

Man is most dishonest in relation to his God: he is not permitted to sin.

With their principles people want to tyrannize their habits or justify them or honour them or abuse or hide them: two men with the same principles probably want them for fundamentally different things.

"Where the tree of Knowledge stands is always paradise": that's what the oldest and the most recent serpents declare.

-Nietzche

PLOTINUS
Knowledge has three degrees—opinion, science, illumination. The means or instrument of the first is sense; of the second, dialectic; of the third, intuition.

(I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy.) "Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that." - Martin Luther King, Jr.

I just found out that the first part of that quote does NOT come from Dr. King,-----so edited it accordingly. Sorry for the mistake.

Rob Lebow
New ideas stir from every corner. The show up disguised innocently as interruptions, contradictions and embarrasing dilemmas. Beware of total strangers and friends alike who shower you with comfortable sameness, and remain open to those who make you uneasy, for they are the true messengers of the future.

Maybe we should always show pictures. Bin Laden, pictures of our wounded service people, pictures of maimed innocent civilians. We can only make decisions about war if we see what war actually is--and not as a video game where bodies quickly disappear leaving behind a shiny gold coin.

“Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it's all over.”

"Sometimes people don't want to hear the truth because they don't want their illusions destroyed."

"The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the priviledge of owning yourself."

- Friedrich Nietzche

"Live life fully while you're here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up! You're going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don't try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human."
Anthony Robbins

Albert Einstein, quoted in H Eves Mathematical Circles Adieu (Boston 1977).

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 for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security.

Make it your purpose to find out.

Find out what?

It does not matter - it'll be useful in the end.
