A Quote by paramhansa yogananda on soul, adventures, fight, ideas, wish, form, desire, freedom, and formlessness

The soul's first adventure is the fight between two ideas: the wish to return to earth in a human form, and the desire to feel the freedom of having no form.

A Quote by Kenneth Smith on philosophy, culture, form, immediacy, modernity, consciousness, self-centeredness, wisdom, and value

Human cultures are all experiments in trying to find a form that will fit the matter of our immediacy; but it is absolutely not the case that all such experiments are of equal merit or value. Some cultures -- and modernity is patently one -- have managed to transmute consciousness into the "disease" that Nietzsche called it, the self-affliction of a self-centeredness that has purged itself of all vestiges of wisdom and value.

A Quote by Suzanne Eder on power, energy, form, and formlessness

Power is the force that maintains and expresses our natural state of wholeness.  It is our ever-present "energy signature," a force field that holds and attracts, a vibration that calls forth our particular form from formlessness.  And this force that moves us toward wholeness and full self-expression is already within us, an essential aspect of our constitution.

Nature fits form to function.  And as one's function is refined their substance will reflect the same.

A Quote by Walter Russell on soul, light, eye, form, transparency, and mind

"Most sculptors make the mistake“, he said, “of thinking of eyes as form and they therefore make them as spherical surfaces. Eyes are not forms, they are transparent, and what one really sees is the light of the soul in them – and that is what I try to give them".

A Quote by Alvar Aalto on form, harmony, and art

In almost every task involving form, there are dozens, often hundreds of contradictory elements, which need to be forced to work in harmony by man's will. This harmony can be acheived only through art.

A Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti on invite, life, happen, moment, and form

The moment you venture out, something takes place in you and about you. Life comes to your aid in various ways. You may not like the form in which it comes to you - it may be misery, struggle, starvation - but when you invite life, things begin to happen.

Jiddu Krishnamurti
