A Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. on heart, conscience, humanity, non-violence, and generosity

The old law of an eye for an eye leaves everyone blind. It destroys communities and makes humanity impossible. It creates bitterness in the survivors and brutality in the destroyers... In winning our freedom, we will so appeal to you heart and conscience that we will win you in the process.

Martin Luther King Jr (1929 - 1968)

A Quote by Andrew Cohen on conscience, veil, volution, and andrew cohen


La conscience elle-même n'a pas besoin d'affirmation externe; elle est toujours déjà parfaitement accomplie et complète. Mais elle veut se connaître. Elle est perpétuellement à la recherche d'elle-même, et quand elle se trouve, elle est toujours affirmée dans la découverte d'elle-même. Tout ce que la conscience veut faire, c'est se ravir d'elle-même, pour toujours, absorbée sans fin par elle-même. Il semble que la vraie nature du soi, au niveau le plus profond, soit l'auto-ravissement.

Si vous portez votre attention sur le fond vide de votre expérience de la conscience, vous verrez par vous-même que l'auto-ravissement est sa nature. La conscience n'est pas un objet ; la conscience est le sujet et le sujet médite en permanence sur lui-même. Quand vous avez localisé cette pure subjectivité et cultivé assez de concentration pour être éveillé à ses qualités, vous découvrirez, en fait, qu'il y a quelque chose de mystérieux et d'infiniment attractif au plus profond de la conscience elle-même. Chaque fois que vous redécouvrirez ce fond sans fond, que ce soit après cinq minutes ou cinq ans, vous trouverez que, miraculeusement, c'est toujours nouveau.

A Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. on church, conscience, and prophetic

The church must be reminded that it is not the master or the servant of the state, but rather the conscience of the state. It must be the guide and the critic of the state, and never its tool. If the church does not recapture its prophetic zeal, it will become an irrelevant social club without moral or spiritual authority.

A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on leaders, achievers, voice, intelligence, physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, vision, discipline, passion, conscience, and 8th habit

When you study the lives of all great achievers--those who have had the greatest influence on others, those who have made things happen--you will find a pattern. Through their persistent efforts and inner struggle, they have greatly expanded their four native human intelligences or capacities. The highest manifestations of these four intelligences are: for mental, vision; for the physical, discipline; for the emotional, passion; for the spiritual, conscience. These manifestations also represent our highest means of expressing our voice.

A Quote by Thomas Moore on politics, death, nature, respect, worldview, interrelated, connections, unconnected, conscience, neglect, patience, and imagination

Only in a thoroughly unrelated world can we poison nature without conscience, neglect our children and the poor, and righteously slay thousands of enemy soldiers because we don't have the patience or imagination for negotiation.

A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on calling, talent, passion, conscience, voice, and soul

When you engage in a work that taps your talent and fuels your passion--that rises out of a great need in the world that you feel drawn by conscience to meet--therein lies your voice, your calling, your soul's code.
