A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on development, growth, and soul

Until the juice ferments a while in the cask,
it isn't wine. If you wish your heart to be bright,
you must do a little work.

A Quote by Muhammad Yunus on development and poverty

In the world of development, if one mixes the poor and the nonpoor in a program, the nonpoor will always drive out the poor, and the less poor will drive out the more poor, unless protective measures are instituted right at the beginning.  In such cases, the nonpoor reap the benefits of all that is done in the name of the poor.

A Quote by Ken Wilber on evolutionary, consciousness, growth, and development

The understanding of “evolutionary consciousness” is perhaps the most important thing lacking in spiritual practices today. Evolution means growth and development. This means that there are aspects of reality that have not yet arisen in our consciousness. But they will arise if we grow.

A Quote by Fred Kofman on development, growth, fear, peace, acceptance, and existence

That’s why I tell you it’s not wrong to try to develop. I would not discourage anybody from trying to grow. The question is, why are you trying to grow? And if you think that unless you grow you are worthless, you are operating out of fear and you will never get out of the nightmare. Once you are at peace with yourself and you find the truth of who you are essentially, your quest for growth becomes simply the quest to express the most beautiful and radiant way the truth of existence.

A Quote by Carl Gustav Jung on development, morality, victor, and white

It is really the mistake of our age. We think it is enough to discover new things, but we don't realize that knowing more demands a cor­responding development of morality.

A Quote by Leo Buscglia on love, becoming, awakening, growth, development, dedication, true love, love of self, love relationship, and relationship

As soon as the love relationship does not lead me to me, as soon as I in a love relationship do not lead another person to himself, this love, even if it seems to be the most secure and ecstatic attachment I have ever experienced, is not true love. For real love is dedicated to continual becoming.

A Quote by André Gide on knowledge, intuition, understanding, development, and know

Know thyself! A maxim as pernicious as it is ugly. Whoever observes himself arrests his own development. A caterpillar who wanted to know itself well would never become a butterfly.
