A Quote by Dag Hammarskjöld on strength, body, soul, muscle, and balance

The breaking wave and the muscle as it contracts obey the same law. Delicate line gathers the body's total strength in a bold balance. Shall my soul meet so severe a curve, journeying on its way to form?

Dag Hammarskjold (1905 - 1961)

A Quote by Earon on abstinence, sex, money, moderation, balance, suffering, and failure

Abstinence is a path of choosing between profound suffering or abject failure.  Moderation is a more humane choice.

Abstinence is a perpetual cycly of holiness, misery and corruption.  Balance brings more fulfillment and less suffering.

A Quote by Rob Brezsny on gorgeous geniuses, holiness, longing, change, and balance

Dear Gorgeous Genius...

Your holiest pain comes from your yearning to change yourself in the exact way you'd like the world around you to change....

Your sweet spot is in between the true believers and the scoffing skeptics....

A Quote by Sherman Alexie on environmentalism, paper, trees, politics, marriage, balance, and irony

"Boise Cascade," said the other Republican husband.
"Sierra Club," said his Democrat wife.
'Wait, wait," I said. "So one of you fights for trees and the other fights against trees?"
"No, no," he said. "We make the paper she writes on to file lawsuits against the paper we make."

A Quote by Edward Paul Abbey on literature, reading, specialization, balance, life, and intellectualism

Literature, like anything else, can become a wearisome business if you make a lifetime specialty of it. A healthy, wholesome man would no more spend his entire life reading great books than he would packing cookies for Nabisco.

Edward Abbey (1927 - 1989)

A Quote by Albulena on hurry, into the hurry, balance, and harmony

I lost into the hurry. Hurry was losing myself and not cleaning my sins/mistakes. Do not hurry, just do it in balance, harmony.
