A Quote by Dag Hammarskjöld on devil, house, empty, door, and guest

The devils enter uninvited when the house stands empty. For other kinds of guests, you have to first open the door.

Dag Hammarskjold (1905 - 1961)

A Quote by Elizabeth Kubler Ross on denial, death, responsible, people, empty, purposeless, lives, postpone, and forever

It is the denial of death that is partially responsible for people
living empty, purposeless lives; for when you live as if you'll live
forever, it becomes too easy to postpone the things you know that you must do.

A Quote by Janabai on divine, eat, drink, bed, empty, and vithabai

There is nothing empty of divine

What I eat is divine
What I drink is divine
My bed is also divine
The divine is here, and it is there
There is nothing empty of divine
Jani says---Vithabai has filled
everything from the inside out

A Quote by Bernadette Roberts on inward, centre, myself, nothing, empty, seeing, joy, self, no self, self-realization, and julie sarah powell

But coming home that day, walking downhill with a panorama of valley and hills before me, I turned my gaze inward, and what I saw, stopped me in my tracks. Instead of the usual unlocalized centre of myself, there was nothing there, it was empty, and at the moment of seeing this there was a flood of quiet joy and I knew, finally I knew what was missing-it was my "self".
