A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on family, garden, harmony, home, and love

A family is a place where minds come in contact with one another. If these minds love one another the home will be as beautiful as a flower garden. But if these minds get out of harmony with one another it is like a storm that plays havoc with the garden.

Buddha (563 - 483 BC)

A Quote by Artur Rodzinski on dedication, giving, harmony, individuality, learning, life, love, mankind, music, nations, neighbors, problems, secrets, service, temperament, wonder, and world

In or orchestra we have many nationalities, types, and temperaments. We have learned to forget individual likes, dislikes, and differences of temperament for the sake of music to which we have dedicated our lives. I often wonder if we could not solve the world's problems on a similar basis of harmony. Think what a single individual in a symphony orchestra can accomplish by giving up his individual traits and ambitions in the service of music. . . . Suppose that in life you had the same all-embracing love for the whole of mankind and for your neighbor in particular. Only when every one of us and every nation learns the secret of love for all mankind will the world become a great orchestra, following the beat of the Greatest Conductor of all.

A Quote by Anne Morrow Lindbergh on borrowing, desires, facts, grace, harmony, intention, language, life, peace, purity, saints, spirituality, and time

But I want first of all - in fact as an end to these other desires - to be at peace with myself. I want a singleness of eye, a purity of intention, a central core to my life that will enable me to carry out these obligations and activities as well as I can. I want in fact-to borrow from the language of the saints - to live 'in grace' as much of the time as possible. I am not using this term in a strictly theological sense. By grace I mean an inner harmony, essentially spiritual, which can be translated into outward harmony.

Anne Lindbergh (1906 -)

A Quote by Alexander Pope on art, chance, clarity, direction, evil, good, harmony, nature, pride, reason, truth, and understanding

All nature is but art, unknown to thee; All chance, direction, which thou canst not see; All discord, harmony not understood; All partial evil, universal good; And spite of pride, in erring reason's spite, One truth is clear, Whatever is, is right.

Alexander Pope (1688 - 1744)

A Quote by Aldo Leopold on animals, harmony, life, listening, music, plants, songs, and understanding

This song of the waters is audible to every ear, but there is other music in these hills, by no means audible to all. . . . On a still night, when the campfire is low and the Pleiades have climbed over rimrocks, sit quietly and listen . . . and think hard of everything you have seen and tried to understand. Then you may hear it - a vast pulsing harmony - its score inscribed on a thousand hills, its notes the lives and deaths of plants and animals, its rhythms spanning the seconds and the centuries.

Aldo Leopold

A Quote by Albert Einstein on action, belief, existence, god, and harmony

I believe in Spinoza's God who reveals himself in the orderly harmony of all that exists, not in a God who concerns himself with fates and actions of human beings.
