A Quote by Sri Chinmoy on enemies, hate, joy, perfection, and happiness

We must see that God operates not only in us but in others as well. God also operates in our so-called enemies. But these are not our real enemies. Our real enemies are doubt, fear, anxiety and worry. When we do not cry to perfect others, but only try to perfect our own lives, then we will have joy.

A Quote by The Bible on psalm, light, fear, strength, life, afraid, wicked, enemies, foes, trouble, joy, cry, mercy, lord, and courage

Psalm 27

1 The LORD is my light and my salvation;
        whom shall I fear?
        The LORD is the strength of my life;
        of whom shall I be afraid?

2 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes,
        came upon me to eat up my flesh,
        they stumbled and fell.

3 Though a host should encamp against me,
        my heart shall not fear:
        though war should rise against me,
        in this will I be confident.

4 One thing have I desired of the LORD,
        that will I seek after;
        that I may dwell in the house of the LORD
        all the days of my life,
        to behold the beauty of the LORD,
         and to inquire in his temple.

5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion:
        in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me;
        he shall set me up upon a rock.

6 And now shall mine head be lifted up
        above mine enemies round about me:
        therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy;
        I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.

7 Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice:
        have mercy also upon me, and answer me.

8 When thou saidst, Seek ye my face;
        my heart said unto thee,
        Thy face, LORD, will I seek.

9 Hide not thy face far from me;
        put not thy servant away in anger:
        thou hast been my help;
        leave me not, neither forsake me,
        O God of my salvation.

10 When my father and my mother forsake me,
        then the LORD will take me up.

11 Teach me thy way, O LORD,
       and lead me in a plain path,
       because of mine enemies.

12 Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies:
        for false witnesses are risen up against me,
        and such as breathe out cruelty.

13 I had fainted, unless I had believed
        to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.

14 Wait on the LORD:
        be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart:
        wait, I say, on the LORD.

A Quote by Niccoló Machiavelli on difficult, doubtful, success, dangerous, initiate, new order, reformer, enemies, profit, old order, defenders, fear, adversaries, laws, incredulity, mankind, believe, and experience

There is nothing more difficult to carry out, nor more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to handle, than to initiate a new order of things.  For the reformer has enemies in all those who profit by the old order, and only lukewarm defenders in all those who would profit by the new order, this lukewarmness arising partly from fear of their adversaries, who have the laws in their favour; and partly from the incredulity of mankind, who do not truly believe in anything new until they have had the actual experience of it.

Niccolo Machiavelli (1469 - 1527)
