A Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh on existence, happiness, kingdom of god, liberation, manifestation, nirvana, and universe

You are what you want to become. Why search anymore? You are a wonderful manifestation. The whole universe has come together to make your existence possible. There is nothing that is not you. The kingdom of God, the Pure Land, nirvana, happiness, and liberation are all you.

A Quote by Abu Sa'id Lbn Abi-L-Khayr on existence, illusion, reality, awakening, enlightenment, and self

An hour reflecting on one's own non-existence is better than a year of religious devotions with the thought that one exists.

A Quote by Milan Kundera on novels, writing, astonishment, existence, and humanity

The light that radiates from the great novels time can never dim, for human existence is perpetually being forgotten by man and thus the novelists discoveries, however old they may be, will never cease to astonish.

A Quote by Milan Kundera on novel, writing, existence, knowledge, and morality

A novel that does not uncover a hitherto unknown segment of existence is immoral. Knowledge is the novel's only morality.

A Quote by Anthony De Mello on spirituality, existence, sleep, life, enlightenment, and awakening

Spirituality means waking up.  Most people, even though they don't know it, are asleep.  They're born asleep, they live asleep, they marry in their sleep, they breed children in their sleep, they die in their sleep without ever waking up.  They never understand the loveliness and the beauty of this thing that we call human existence.

A Quote by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche on experience, contempt, happiness, disgust, reason, virtue, contentment, poverty, filth, existence, knowledge, lion, rage, good, evil, and weary

    What is the greatest experience you can have? It is the hour of the great contempt. The hour when your happiness, too, arouses your disgust, and even your reason and your virtue.
    The hour when you say, 'What matters my happiness? It is poverty and filth and wretched contentment. But my happiness ought to justify existence itself.'
    The hour when you say, 'What matters my reason? Does it crave knowledge as the lion his food? It is poverty and filth and wretched contentment.'
    The hour when you say, 'What matters my virtue? As yet it has not made me rage. How weary I am of my good and my evil! All that is poverty and filth and wretched contentment.'

Friedrich Nietzsche (1844 - 1900)

A Quote by Aghori Vimlananda on awareness and existence

To be really aware you must be able to know simultaneously what is going on thousands of miles away today, what may have happened centuries ago, what will happen anywhere in the world decades from now, and what is occuring, has occured, or will occur on other planes of existence. And you must still act as if you know nothing. You must just sit and talk with other people and play the part which Nature has assigned to you.

A Quote by Osho Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh on philosophy, zen, participation, lifestyle, existence, and universe

Philosophy is speculation, Zen is participation. Participate in the night leaving, participate in the evening coming, participate in the stars and participate in the clouds; make participation your lifestyle and the whole existence becomes such a joy, such an ecstasy. You could not have dreamed of a better universe.

Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh
