committment

A Quote by Gandhi on absolute truth relative truth, understanding, committment, consistency, and truth

It is not given to man to know the whole Truth. His duty lies in living up to the truth as he sees it, and in doing so, to resort to the purest means, i.e., to non-violence.

God alone knows absolute truth. Therefore, I have often said, Truth is God. It follows that man, a finite being, cannot know absolute truth.

Nobody in this world possesses absolute truth. This is God's attribute alone. Relative truth is all we know. Therefore, we can only follow the truth as we see it. Such pursuit of truth cannot lead anyone astray.

Gandhi (1869 - 1948)

A Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien on wisdom, peace, honour, committment, and greater good

"And it is not our part here to take thought only for a season, or for a
few lives of Men, or for a passing age of the World. We should seek a final end to this menace, even if we do not hope to make one."

J.R.R. Tolkien (1892 - 1973)

A Quote by W.H. Murray on committed, committment, initiative, acts of initiative, and providence

But when I said that nothing had been done I erred in one important matter. We had definitely committed ourselves and were halfway out of our ruts. We had put down our passage money--booked a sailing to Bombay. This may sound too simple, but is great in consequence. Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, the providence moves too. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. I learned a deep respect for one of Goethe's couplets:
          Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it.
          Boldness has genius, power and magic in it!

W.H. Murray

A Quote by Carlos Castaneda on warriors way, choice, and committment

“The most effective way to live is as a warrior. A warrior may worry and think before making any decision, but once he makes it, he goes his way, free from worries or thoughts; there will be a million other decisions still awaiting him. That’s the warrior’s way.”

Carlos Castaneda (1931 -)
