I May Dream of No Heaven

I wish to live ever as to derive my satisfaction and inspirations from the commonest events, every-day phenomena, so that what my senses hourly perceive, my daily walk, the conversation of my neighbors, may inspire me, and I may dream of no heaven but that which lies about me.

-Henry David Thoreau

A Life of Anticipation

Men spend their lives in anticipations, in determining to be vastly happy at some period when they have time. But the present time has one advantage over every other - it is our own. Past opportunities are gone, future have not come. We may lay in a stock of pleasures, as we would lay in a stock of wine; but if we defer the tasting of them too long, we shall find that both are soured by age.

Charles Caleb Colton

Circle of Compassion

"A human being is a part of a whole, called by us 'universe', a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."

-Albert Einstein

All Religions Are the Same

All major religious traditions carry basically the same message,
that is love, compassion and forgiveness.

The important thing is they should be part of our daily lives.

- Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama

Are you moving?

All of mankind is divided into three classes: those that are immovable, those that are movable, and those that move. - Benjamin Franklin
