exchange

A Quote by Theodore Zeldin on conversation, meeting, minds, memories, habits, meet, exchange, facts, transform, reshape, implications, engage, thought, and cards

Conversation is a meeting of minds with different memories and habits. When minds meet, they don't just exchange facts: they transform them, reshape them, draw different implications from them, engage in new trains of thought. Conversation doesn't just reshuffle the cards: it creates new cards.

A Quote by Natalie Goldberg on exchange, life force, seeds, and become

Whether we know it or not, we transmit the presence of everyone we have every know, as though by being in each other's presence we exchange our cells, pass on some of our life force, and then we go on carrying that other person in our body, not unlike springtime, when certain plants in fields we walk through attach their seeds in the form of small burrs to our socks, our pants, our caps, as if to say, 'Go on, take us with you, carry us to root in another place.' This is how we survive long after we are dead.  This is why it is important who we become, because we pass it on.

A Quote by Luisah Teish on millenium, habit, future, exchange, respect, and humility

I maintain that the biggest challenge in the new millennium could be a change of habit. We could change from a dominating commodity culture into one of true exchange in which we learn from each other in humility and respect. I do think it's possible. But it's up to us.

A Quote by Xia Neifion~Clark on temple, truthful, appropriate, communication, exchange, gene pool, spiritual tradition, true center, universality, synthesis, quest, equilibrium, neutralization, unification, and spirituality

It can be said that a Temple is most appropriate (i.e. Truthful) when considered as a center of communication and exchange between the gene pools of the various Spiritual Traditions.  A Temple which is anything other than a True Center (of Universality and Synthesis) - anything other than the Quest for equilibrium, neutralization, and/or unification of differences and discrepancies - only pretends a basis in Spirituality.

A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on education, exchange, value, shared knowledge, teacher, student, and growth

A teacher who establishes rapport with the taught, becomes one with them, learns more from them than he teaches them. He who learns nothing from his disciples is, in my opinion, worthless. Whenever I talk with someone I learn from him. I take from him more than I give him. In this way, a true teacher regards himself as a student of his students. If you will teach your pupils with this attitude, you will benefit much from them.

Gandhi (1869 - 1948)
