Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul; the blueprint of your ultimate achievements.
Pursue, keep up with, circle round and round your life, as a dog does his master's chaise. Do what you love. Know your own bone; gnaw at it, bury it, unearth it, and gnaw it still.
-- Henry David Thoreau
Those who realize that God cannot be known, truly know; those who claim that they know, know nothing.
The ignorant think that God can be grasped by the mind; the wise know IT beyond knowledge.
When you see that God acts through you at every moment, in every movement of mind or body, you attain true freedom.
When you realize the truth, and cling to nothing in the world, you enter eternal life.
-- The Upanishads
Happiness is a conscious choice, not an automatic response.

Everyone must row with the oars he has.
-- English Proverb
He turns not back who is bound to a star.
-- Leonardo da Vinci
Preconceived notions are the locks on the door to wisdom.
-- Merry Browne
Only God is in a position to look down on anyone.

We are overrun with Popes. From curates and governesses, who may claim a sort of professional standing, to parents and uncles and nursery-maids and school teachers and wiseacres generally, there are scores of thousands of human insects groping through our darkness by the feeble phosphorescence of their own tails, yet ready at a moment's notice to reveal the will of God on every possible subject; to explain how and why the universe was made (in my youth they added the exact date) and the circumstances under which it will cease to exist; to lay down precise rules of right and wrong conduct; to discriminate infallibly between virtuous and vicious character; and all this with such certainty that they are prepared to visit all the rigors of the law, and all the ruinous penalties of social ostracism on people, however harmless their actions may be, who venture to laugh at their monstrous conceit or to pay their assumptions the extravagant compliment of criticizing them.
-- George Bernard Shaw
Of course, it's the same old story. Truth usually is the same old story.
-- Margaret Thatcher
God created suffering so that we would learn to help one another.
-- Anita Bergen
