A Quote by Aristotle on life, death, psyche, body, move, sense, speak, feel, care, and breath

You'll understand what life is if you think about the act of dying. When I die, how will I be different from the way I am right now? In the first moments after death, my body will be scarcely different in physical terms than it was in the last seconds of life, but I will no longer move, no longer sense, nor speak, nor feel, nor care. It's these things that are life. At that moment, the psyche takes flight in the last breath.

Aristotle (384 - 322 BC)

A Quote by Kabir on god, breath, and yoga

Are you looking for me?
I am in the next seat.
When you really look for me, you will find me instantly -
You will find me in the tiniest house of time.
Kabir says: Student, tell me, what is God?
{S}he is the breath inside the breath.
