Meditation, then, is a state of mind in which the 'me' is absent. And therefore that very absence brings order.

A Quote by j. Krishnamurti on change, peace, self, world, and family

Student: Sir, you said you must change the world. How can you change it, sir?

Krishnamurti: What is the world? The world is where you live - your family, your friends, your neighbours. And your family, your friends, your neighbours can be extended and that is the world. Now, you are the centre of that world. That is the world you live in. Now how will you change the world? By changing yourself.

A Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti on sleep, organization, wake up, thought, and progress

Some go to sleep in an organization and never wake up, and those who do wake up put them selves to sleep again by joining another. This acquisitive movement is called expansion of thought, progress.

If you find out what it is you love to do and give your whole life to it, then there is no contradiction, and in that state your being is your doing.

A Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti on invite, life, happen, moment, and form

The moment you venture out, something takes place in you and about you. Life comes to your aid in various ways. You may not like the form in which it comes to you - it may be misery, struggle, starvation - but when you invite life, things begin to happen.

A Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti on krishnamurti and gossip

"As we are concerned with what others think of us, so we are anxious to know all about them; and from this arise the crude and subtle forms of snobbishness and the worship of authority. Thus we become more and more externalized and inwardly empty. The more externalized we are, the more sensations and distractions there must be, and this gives rise to a mind that is never quiet, that is not capable of deep search and discovery." (Krishnamurti on "gossip". When I read the text, I could not help thinking: this guy is talking about my zaadz activities. Maybe this is too hard a judgement, but basically that's what we are doing here: being concerned with what others think of us and being anxious to know all about them.)
