A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on giving, natural, love, evolution, last stage, final evolution, flowers, myrtle, potlatch, and generosity

There are those who give little of the much which they have - and they give it for recognition and their hidden desire makes their gifts unwholesome.

And there are those who have little and give it all.
These are the believers in life and the bounty of life, and their coffer is never empty.
There are those who give with joy, and that joy is their reward.
And there are those who give with pain, and that pain is their baptism.
And there are those who give and know not pain in giving, nor do they seek joy, nor give with mindfulness of virtue;
They give as in yonder valley the myrtle breathes its fragrance into space.

Kahlil Gibran (1883 - 1931)

A Quote by Curtis White on sacred and evolution

'This "human thing" is the permanent process of seeking the sacred through revealing what is hidden. It is an ever ongoing and indefinite process of understanding and interpretation.'

A Quote by Robert Lee Frost on psychology, change, evolution, healing, emotions, growth, consciousness, and acceptance

The way out is the way in.

I am sure I have heard this several times from places I can't recall, but it's not already in the Gaia Quotes database, so I add this profound insight from the fields of psychological healing and spiritual evolution. It sure has helped me.

Probable source: American poet Robert Frost who said what Tsuya posted below in her comment. And Howard Nemerov said the same thing in something he wrote, too. http://quotationsbook.com/quote/42777/

A Quote by 1Vector3 on belief, believing, consciousness, awareness, evolution, growth, and self

You've heard "Don't believe everything you read." Here are some useful spinoffs: Don't believe everything you think. Don't believe everything you tell yourself. And most especially, don't believe everything you feel.

A Quote by Incubus on evolution

Enough bowing down to disillusion!
Hats off & applause to rogues & evolution!
The ripple effect is too good not to mention.
If you're not affected, you're not paying attention!
It's too good, too good, not to have an effect.

A Quote by Mark Twain on animals, pets, cats, evolution, man, humanity, humans, and slavery

Of all God's creatures there is only one that cannot be made the slave of the lash; that one is the cat. If man could be crossed with the cat, it would improve man, but it would deteriorate the cat.
