Power always thinks it has a great soul and vast views beyond the comprehension of the weak.
Drop the idea of becoming someone, because you are already a masterpiece. You cannot be improved. You have only to come to it, to know it, to realize it.
Tomorrow hopes we have learned something from yesterday.
In moments of great grief, thatís where you look and immerse yourself. You realise you are not immortal, you are not a god, you are part of the natural world and you come to accept that.
Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.
Learning and wisdom are superfluities, the surface glitter merely, but it is the heart that is the seat of all power.
Drop the idea that you are Atlas carrying the world on your shoulders. The world would go on even without you. Don't take yourself so seriously.
When you learn, teach, when you get, give.
Above all be of single aim; have a legitimate and useful purpose, and devote yourself unreservedly to it.
If you would take, you must first give, this is the beginning of intelligence.
Those who know, do. Those that understand, teach.
Unfortunately, the clock is ticking, the hours are going by. The past increases, the future recedes. Possibilities decreasing, regrets mounting.
Our virtues and our failings are inseparable, like force and matter. When they separate, man is no more
Energy may be likened to the bending of a crossbow; decision,to the releasing of a trigger.
This is something basic to be understood: the ego must come to a peak, it must be strong, it must have attained an integrity only then can you dissolve it.
Itís your road and yours alone. Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you.
So whenever a Western seeker reaches to an understanding that ego is the problem, he can easily dissolve it, more easily than any Eastern seeker.
If you don't behave as you believe, you will end by believing as you behave.
How often I found where I should be going only by setting out for somewhere else.
Act as if the maxim of your action were to become through your will a general natural law
Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens
