A Quote by Paulo Coelho on blind, miracles, difference, attention, life, and enlightenment

You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own. It's just a matter of paying attention to this miracle.

A Quote by Oliver North on difference, right, wrong, decision, call, good, better, bad, and worse

I know the difference between right and wrong, and I can tell good from bad.  But I also know that the more difficult decisions come when we have to choose between good and better.  The toughest calls of all are those we have to make between bad and worse.

A Quote by paramhansa yogananda on difference, existence, dream, france, india, tibet, buddha, america, king, businessman, reincarnation, birth, death, hindu, frenchman, tibetan, american, and englishman

Birth and death are doors through which you pass from one dream to another. Someone is born on Earth in France as a powerful king, rules for a time, then dies. He maybe reborn in India, and travel in a bullock cart into the forest to meditate. He may next find rebirth in America as a successful businessman; and when he dreams death again, reincarnates perhaps in Tibet as a devotee of Buddha and spend his entire life in a lamasery. Therefore hate none and be attached to no nationality, for sometimes you are a Hindu, sometimes a Frenchman, sometimes an Englishman, or an American or a Tibetan. What is the difference? Each existence is a dream within a dream, is it not?

A Quote by Charles Hampden-Turner on difference, good and evil, good, bad, opposites, and synthesis

"It is in vain that we search for an essential difference between good and evil, for their constituents are the same. The crucial distinction lies in their structure, i.e., the manner in which the pieces are assembled. Evil is disintegration, an angry juxtaposition of alienated opposites, with parts always striving to repress other parts. Good is the synthesis and reconciliation of these same pieces."

Charles Hampden-Turner

Sometimes it's a form of love to talk to somebody that you've nothing in common with and still be fascinated by their presence.

A Quote by unknown on god, pain, oppression, joy, difference, believe, bless, and work

May God bless you with discomfort at easy answers, half truths, and superficial relationships, so that you may live deep within your heart. May God bless you with anger at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people, so that you may work for justice, freedom, and peace. May God bless you with tears to shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection, starvation, and war, so that you may reach out your hand to comfort them and to turn their pain into joy. And may God bless you with enough foolishness to believe that you can make a difference in this world, so that you can do what others claim cannot be done.

A Quote by Virginia Satir on family, flourish, atmosphere, individual, difference, mistakes, toleration, and flexible

Feelings of worth can flourish only in an atmosphere where individual differences are appreciated, mistakes are tolerated, communication is open, and rules are flexible - the kind of atmosphere that is found in a nurturing family.
