A Quote by U.G. Krishnamurti on u g, krishnamurti, understanding, life, death, soul, knowledge, questions, and answers

You have no way of knowing anything about your death, now or at the end of your so-called life.  Unless knowledge, the continuity of knowledge, comes to an end, death cannot take place.  You want to know something about death: you want to make that a part of your knowledge.  But death is not something mysterious; the ending of that knowledge is death.  What do you think will continue after death?  What is there while you are living?  Where is the entity there?  There is nothing there -- no soul -- there is only this question about after death.  The question has to die now to find the answer -- your answer; not my answer -- because the question is born out of the assumption, the belief, that there is something to continue after death.

U.G. Krishnamurti

A Quote by Vladimir Antonov on gospel, knowledge, truth, love, destiny, and life

110. The one who cognized the Truth is free. The free one does not commit sin: because he who commits sin becomes a slave of sin (i.e. first of all, burdens his destiny).

The true knowledge is like mother and father (i.e. like wise teachers, advisers, and guardians of their child).

Those who are not capable of sinning are said that they have attained freedom. The knowledge of the Truth raises them even more. This makes them both free and above this world.

But only Love creates. He who became free thanks to knowledge, because of Love remains a slave of those who have not managed to attain the Freedom of knowledge yet. He brings the knowledge to them and this develops the latter because it calls them to the Freedom.

Love takes nothing: how can it take something? Everything belongs to it. It does not say, “This is mine! And this is mine!” But it says: “This is yours!”

A Quote by Zig Ziglar on performance, purpose, and knowledge

A Quote by Vladimir Antonov on love, life, knowledge, wisdom, and bartholomew

And one more: always remember that in this world nothing but your love to Me belongs to you! This is your treasure, and it is yours by right! All your riches are — your love! Nobody ever will be able to take it away from you! It is impossible to steal, to take love by force; it can not be sold and inherited. One only can give love — sincerely and gratis!

Love has an amazing characteristic: the more you give it, give to others, the more of it you have.

But love is a ‘free bird’: it lives and grows on freedom. Such human notions as ‘I want’ and ‘my’ are opposite to love, because they constrain its freedom. All attempts to appropriate love are doomed to be failed. One can only accept it with gratitude, carefully and gently, as a great gift of the one who gives it.

Love enters only one gates — the spiritual heart opened towards! And then the reciprocal wave of love arises in it, streaming outside. In that way love lives and grows.

Vladimir Antonov

A Quote by Lao Tzu on wisdom, knowledge, philosophy, tao te ching, and lao tse

Being satisfied with little, you can gain much. Seeking much you will go astray. The wise heeds this precept. If it could be so with all people!

The wise trusts not only to his physical eyes — thus he can see clearly.

The wise does not think that only he is right —thus he knows the truth.

He does not seek glory — yet people respect him.

He does not seek power — yet people follow him.

He does not struggle with anyone — thus no one can vanquish him.

He does not feel pity for himself — thus he can successfully develop.

Only he who does not seek to be ahead of others is capable of living in harmony with everyone.

The wise cares about everyone, and he becomes an example to all.

He does not praise himself — yet he is respectable.

He does not elevate himself — yet he is esteemed by others.

In ancient times, people said that imperfect moves to becoming perfect. Are these words vain? No! Truly, by gaining Unity you come to Perfection!

Lao Tzu (c.604 - 531 B.C.)

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on love, life, prophet, knowledge, and wisdom

If he is indeed wise, he does not bid you enter the house of wisdom, but rather leads you to the threshold of your own mind. The astronomer may speak to you of his understanding of space, but he cannot give you his understanding. The musician may sing to you of the rhythm which is in all space, but he cannot give you the ear which arrests the rhythm nor the voice that echoes it. And he who is versed in the science of numbers can tell of the regions of weight and measure, but he cannot conduct you thither. For the vision of one man lends not its wings to another man. And even as each one of you stands alone in God’s knowledge, so must each one of you be alone in his knowledge of God and in his understanding of the earth.

Kahlil Gibran (1883 - 1931)
