A Quote by Evan Pritchard on realisation, milestone, god, plateau, and here and there

"God realization is not a milestone, but a long road that leads nowhere. It is in vain to make claims you are going to "get there" because once you reach this plateau you have never been more "just here" before."

Evan Pritchard

A Quote by Bernadette Roberts on journey, moment, milestone, contemplative, christian, no self, self realization, and julie sarah powell

Since the moment of self-consciousness comes to a permanent end - and a new journey begins- is such a decisive stroke or milestone in the contemplative life, I can only speculate why so little has been said of this breakthrough; in fact , I may never get over the silence on the part of writers who say nothing about this second movement.

A Quote by Susan Brownell Anthony on moment, milestone, live, life, and small things

Sooner or later we all discover that the important moments in life are not the advertised ones, not the birthdays, the graduations, the weddings, not the great goals achieved. The real milestones are less prepossessing. They come to the door of memory unannounced, stray dogs that amble in, sniff around a bit, and simply never leave. Our lives are measured by these.

Susan B. Anthony (1820 - 1906)
