Sadhguru

The most difficult thing about Enlightenment is that it is too simple.

Swami Rama

When you sincerely tread the path, you will meet one who can help you with all setbacks.

Manu

Bodies are cleansed by water; the mind is purified by Truth.

Kevin M. Schmiegel

It is NEVER too late to say thank you, and you never know what your show of appreciation will lead to as the “cycle of gratitude” continues.

Ajahn Mun Bhuridatta

People who aren’t confused about virtue don’t have to go looking or asking for it, because they know that virtue exists within themselves.

Franck Prévot

A tree is a little bit of the future.

Helen Keller

Where gayety was infrequent, the simplest amusements had the perfume of heavenly joy. Where the surroundings were rural, and life monotonous, any beam that shone upon them precious…. Small events were full of poetry, and the glory of the spirit lay over all.

Lao Tzu

Through nondoing, / nothing is left undone. / To give up everything / is to gain the universe.

Bankei

As you are, right here at this moment, it is—effortless enlightenment. There’s no getting anywhere or not getting anywhere…. Hesitate, and it’s lost; waver, and it draws further away.

Muriel Strode

Think not because the chrysalis struggles that it is in need of you.

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

You can’t write a script in your mind and then force yourself to follow it. You have to let yourself be.

William Wordsworth

While with an eye made / quiet by the power / Of harmony, and the deep / power of joy, / We see into the life of things.

Katherine Mansfield

Could we change our attitude, we should not only see life differently, but life itself would come to be different. Life would undergo a change of appearance because we ourselves had undergone a change of attitude.

Sogyal Rinpoche

The most important thing is not to get trapped in what I see everywhere in the West, a “shopping mentality”: shopping around from master to master, teaching to teaching, without any continuity or real, sustained dedication to any one discipline. In Tibet we used to say: “knowing one, you accomplish all.” The modern faddish idea…

Ausonius

Begin; to begin is half the work. Let half still remain; again begin this, and thou wilt have finished.

Allan Sherman

The difference between reality and unreality is that reality has so little to recommend it.

Byron Katie

Life is simple. Everything happens for you, not to you. Everything happens at exactly the right moment, neither too soon nor too late. You don’t have to like it… it’s just easier if you do.

Tristan Gooley

It should be expected that we will find wonder in a vast mountain landscape, but it is a more serious challenge to find wonder in a hill. It is a great achievement to find it in a molehill.

Mort Sahl

This matter of two sides to every question is bad logic and bad practice: sometimes there are no sides; sometimes there are a hundred.

Zora Neale Hurston 

If you haven’t got it, you can’t show it. If you have got it, you can’t hide it.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Be silly. Be honest. Be kind.

Kōbō Abe

You wonder what’s inside. You wonder if you can trust it.

Jeanette Winterson

Love demands expression. It will not stay still, stay silent, be good, be modest, be seen and not heard, no. It will break out in tongues of praise, the high note that smashes the glass and spills the liquid.

Vincent McNabb

There are no short cuts to Heaven, only the ordinary way of ordinary things.

William Blake

To see a World in a Grain of Sand / And a Heaven in a Wild Flower / Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand / And Eternity in an hour

Junot Diaz

You can never run away. Not ever. The only way out is in.

Hafiz

Ever since happiness heard your name, it has been running through the streets trying to find you.

Peter Matthiessen

When we are mired in the relative world, never lifting our gaze to the mystery, our life is stunted, incomplete; we are filled with yearning for that paradise that is lost when, as young children, we replace it with words and ideas and abstractions—such as merit, such as past, present, and future—our direct spontaneous experience…

David Steindl-Rast

Gratefulness is the gallantry of a heart ready to rise to the opportunity a given moment offers.

Loraine Hansberry

Just sit awhile and think… Never be afraid to sit awhile and think.
