A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on borrowing, certainty, knowledge, wishes, and words

If your knowledge of fire has been turned to certainty by words alone, then seek to be cooked by the fire itself. Don't abide in borrowed certainty. There is no real certainty until you burn; if you wish for this, sit down in the fire.

A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on beginning, belief, and certainty

Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I shall have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it, even if I may not have it at the beginning.

A Quote by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche on certainty, death, life, and soul

Death. The certain prospect of death could sweeten every life with a precious and fragrant drop of levity- and now you strange apothecary souls have turned it into an ill-tasting drop of poison that makes the whole of life repulsive.

Friedrich Nietzsche (1844 - 1900)

A Quote by Dan Millman on birth, certainty, happiness, illness, reason, and time

Wake up! If you knew for certain you had a terminal illness--if you had little time left to live--you would waste precious little of it! Well, I'm telling you...you do have a terminal illness: It's called birth. You don't have more than a few years left. No one does! So be happy now, without reason--or you will never be at all.

A Quote by Carlos Castaneda on certainty, change, ideas, and time

There are lots of things a warrior can do at a certain time which he couldn't do years before. Those things themselves did not change; what changed was his idea of himself.

A Quote by Carlos Castaneda on certainty, confidence, humility, men, and self-confidence

The self-confidence of the warrior is not the self-confidence of the average man. The average man seeks certainty in the eyes of the onlooker and calls that self-confidence. The warrior seeks impeccability in his own eyes and calls that humbleness. The average man is hooked to his fellow men, while the warrior is hooked only to infinity.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on blindness, certainty, death, evolution, faith, fear, knowledge, lies, life, mankind, spirituality, and path

The further the spiritual evolution of mankind advances, the more certain it seems to me that the path to genuine religiosity does not lie through the fear of life, and the fear of death, and blind faith, but through striving after rational knowledge.

A Quote by Wayne Dyer on certainty, future, heart, justice, life, and present

Present-moment living, getting in touch with your ''now,'' is at the heart of effective living. When you think about it, there really is no other moment you can live. Now is all there is, and the future is just another present moment to live when it arrives. One thing is certain, you cannot live it until it does appear.

A Quote by Anthony (Tony) Robbins on belief, certainty, impossibility, and people

If you develop the absolute sense of certainty that powerful beliefs provide, then you can get yourself to accomplish virtually anything, including those things that other people are certain are impossible.
