The cure for anything is salt water — sweat, tears, or the sea.
— Isak Dinesen
In dwelling, live close to the ground. In thinking, keep to the simple.
In conflict, be fair and generous. In governing, don’t try to control.
In work, do what you enjoy. In family life, be completely present.
— Tao te Ching
If a man take no thought about what is distant, he will find sorrow near at hand.
That which you cannot give away, you do not possess. It possesses you.
— Ivern Ball
Adversity makes men, and prosperity makes monsters.
— Victor Hugo
You tend to think of yourselves as a people of beginnings and endings. And yet, there is neither. That which you love will continue forever just as surely as that which you hate. Do away with that which you don’t want by ceasing to hate and resist it. There is only one power and one force in the universe and I am that. I created you in my image and likeness so you are that.
The power to heal and prosper you, to guide and help you is not in the skies. It is and has always been within you. All you have to do is to become aware that I am there. There is mountain-moving power in each and every one of my children. You are a part of me and yet, at times, you think yourselves apart from me. You are made as I am. That which I do, you can also do. You are all co-creators with me.
— John Harricharan
I am never afraid of what I know.
— Anna Sewell
He who knows others is wise; He who knows himself is enlightened.
Once a new idea springs into existence, it cannot be unthought. There is a sense of immortality in a new idea.
— Edward DeBono
To rank the effort above the prize may be called love.
There is not enough darkness in all the universe to put out the light of a single candle.
Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.
— Rainer Maria Rilke
