A Quote by Micheal Teal on happiness, passion, life, soul, spirit, peace, love, insight, joy, and imagination

A happy and passionate life can be achieved if we transform limiting beliefs and listen to the voice of wisdom within our soul. The bread of life is such that if we are at one with nature we can nourish the spirits of all we cherish with insight and joy. Celebrate your passion, live together peacefully and imagine the unimaginable, do this and and yours will be an existence overflowing with peace and love.

A Quote by Robert Grudin on truth, time, timing, realization, insight, and writing

Written truth is four-dimensional. If we consult it at the wrong time, or read it at the wrong place, it is as empty and shapeless as a dress on a hook.

A Quote by Dag Hammarskjöld on love, unreciprocated, giving, loneliness, and insight

Perhaps a great love is never returned. Had it been given warmth and shelter by its counterpart in the Other, perhaps it would have been hindered from ever growing to maturity.
It "gives" us nothing.
But in its world of loneliness it leads us up to the summits with wide vistas - of great insights.

Dag Hammarskjold (1905 - 1961)

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on buddhas, world-honored ones, knowledge, insight, purity, understanding, enter the path, and why buddhas come

The Buddhas, the World-Honored Ones, for one great cause alone appear in the world. The Buddhas, the World-Honored Ones, appear in the world because they wish to cause the beings to hear of the Buddha's knowledge and insight and thus enable them to gain purity. They appear in the world because they wish to demonstrate the Buddha's knowledge and insight to the beings. They appear in the world because they wish to cause the beings to understand. They appear in the world because they wish to cause the beings to enter into the path of the Buddha's knowledge and insight.

Buddha (563 - 483 BC)

A Quote by William Cowper on happiness, insight, grace, and recognition

He who finds thought that lets us penetrate even a little deeper into the eternal mystery of nature has been granted great grace. He who, in addition, experiences the recognition, sympathy, and help of the best minds of his times, had been given almost more happiness than one man can bear.

William Cowper (1731 - 1800)

A Quote by Kenneth Smith on philosophy, consciousness, determination, criticism, sentimentality, ego, insight, truth, subjectivity, objectivity, and life

Not the least of the problems in clarifying one's consciousness is developing the stoic determination to criticize one's own softness or sentimentality toward oneself. Ego, self-solicitous about its own tenderness, is the ultimate policeman over its own false consciousness, dementedly uprooting every healthy seedling of insight into the truth. As Kierkegaard remarked, most people are subjective toward themselves and objective toward all others, but the real trick and task of life is to learn to be just the very opposite.
