A Quote by J. T. Mackey on force, giving, imagination, intelligence, interest, life, limits, people, philosophy, problems, satisfaction, and work

Take two workers in an organization. One limits his giving by wages he is paid. He insists on being paid instantly for what he does. That shows he is a man of limited imagination and intelligence. The other is a natural giver. His philosophy of life compels him to make himself useful. He knows that if he takes care of other people's problems they will be forced to take care of him to protect their own interests. The more a man gives of himself to his work, the more he will get out of it, both in wages and satisfaction.

A Quote by Abu Bakr Muhammad Ibn al-`Arabi on divinity, faith, god, heart, limits, order, and understanding

The "God created in the faith" manifests Himself no longer in order to impose Himself on the faithful, but in order to express His limits, for these limits are the condition which makes possible one among the many divine epiphanies. The gnostic does not receive a ready-made Image of his Lord, but understands Him in the light of the Image which in the course of his manajat, his intimate dialogue, appears in the mirror of his heart as subtle organ.

When you know what men are capable of you marvel neither at their sublimity nor their baseness. There are no limits in either direction apparently.

There are no limits to either time or distance, except as man himself may make them. I have but to touch the wind to know these things.
