A Quote by Richard David Bach on friendship, space-time, and absence

If our friendship depends on things like space and time, then when we finally overcome space and time, we've destroyed our own brotherhood! But overcome space, and all we have left is Here. Overcome time, and all we have left is Now. And in the middle of Here and Now, don't you think that we might see each other once or twice?

A Quote by Richard David Bach on learning, study, religion, truth, unity, and consciousness

In spite of my study, I have learned.  Every grand religion begins in light.  Yet only hearts hold light.  Pages cannot.  I have paper in my hands.  Give these words to the world and they will be loved and understood by those who already know their truth.  The truth doesn't burn.  The truth waits for anyone who wishes to find it… only these pages will burn.  At one with the stars… with the pages and their love… one with everything that is, that ever was or will be.  One.

A Quote by Richard David Bach on past, future, choices, spiritual, and change your mind

You are led
through your lifetime
by the inner learning creature,
the playful spiritual being
that is your real self.

Don't turn away
from possible futures
before you're certain you don't have
anything to learn from them.

You're always free to change your mind and
choose a different future, or
a different
past.

A Quote by Richard David Bach on clarity, justice, and learning

Just be who you are, calm and clear and bright. Automatically, as we shine who we are, asking ourselves every minute is this what I really want to do, doing it only when we answer yes, automatically that turns away those who have nothing to learn from who we are and attracts those who do, and from whom we have to learn, as well.

A Quote by Richard David Bach on death, happiness, jobs, judgment, observation, unhappiness, and the observer

Part of us is always the observer, and no matter what, it observes. It watches us. It does not care if we are happy or unhappy, if we are sick or well, if we live or die. Its only job is to sit there on our shoulder and pass judgment on whether we are worthwhile human beings.

A Quote by Richard David Bach on body, heaven, learning, life, limits, nature, perfection, performance, sons, thought, and time

Jonathan Livingston Seagull is speaking to his young fledgling son who is learning to fly: You will begin to touch heaven . . . in the moment that you touch perfect speed. And that isn't flying a thousand miles an hour, or a million, or flying at the speed of light. Because any number is a limit, and perfection doesn't have limits. Perfect speed, my son, is being there. . . . To fly as fast as thought, to anywhere that is, you must begin by knowing that you have already arrived. . . . The trick is to stop seeing yourself as trapped inside a limited body that has a forty-two-inch wingspan and performance that could be plotted on a chart. The trick is to know that your true nature lives, as perfect as an unwritten number, everywhere at once across space and time.
