Quotes

“We do not see things as they are, but as we are.”

“Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.”
~ Edgar Allen Poe

“Love is wise, and hatred is foolish.”
“What is wanted is not the will to believe, but the will to find out, which is the exact opposite.”
“The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt.”
~ Bertrand Russell

“Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet, and the winds long to play with your hair.”
“At ebb tide I wrote a line upon the sand, and gave it all my heart and all my soul. At flood tide I returned to read what I had inscribed and found my ignorance upon the shore.”
~ Kahlil Gibran

“Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth.”
“The further the spiritual evolution of mankind advances, the more certain it seems to me that the path to genuine religiosity does not lie through the fear of life, and the fear of death, and blind faith, but through striving after rational knowledge.”
“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science.”
“Few people are capable of expressing with equanimity opinions which differ from the prejudices of their social environment. Most people are even incapable of forming such opinions.”

“I’m on the run from the Killer B’s. B is for Belief. B is for Belonging. If you don’t Belong among us, then you’re our inferior, or our enemy, or both; and you can’t Belong with us unless you Believe what we Believe. Our religion, our town, our school, our race, our nation. Believe. Belong. Behave. Or Be damned. As long as we are driven to Belong and Believe, we’ll never be at peace, and we’ll never be free.”
“We may ride the currents to the stars, where, in the dimension of the overmind, we’ll experience closure with the godhead, eventually to embark on even higher tides to even stranger destinations requiring even more unimaginable transformations.”
“Silence is a mirror. So faithful, and yet so unexpected, is the reflection it can throw back at men that they will go to almost any length to avoid seeing themselves in it, and if ever its duplicating surface is temporarily wiped clean of modern life’s ubiquitous hubbub, they will hasten to fog it over with such desperate personal noise devices as polite conversation, humming, whistling, imaginary dialogue, schizophrenic babble, or, should it come to that, the clandestine cannonry of their own farting. Only in sleep is silence tolerated, and even there, most dreams have soundtracks. Since meditation is a deliberate descent into deep internal hush, a mute stare into the ultimate looking glass, it is regarded with suspicion by the nattering masses; with hostility by business interests (people sitting in silent serenity are seldom consuming goods); and with spite by a clergy whose windy authority it is seen to undermine and whose bombastic livelihood it is perceived to threaten.”
~ Tom Robbins

“Discovery consists of seeing what everyone else has seen, and thinking what no one has thought.”
~ Albert Szent-Gryorgi

“Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.”
~ Lao Tzu
