A Quote by Vincent van Gogh on mind, music, and pictures

Though I am often in the depths of misery, there is still calmness, pure harmony and music inside me.  I see paintings or drawings in the poorest cottages, in the dirtiest corners.  And my mind is driven towards these things with an irresistible momentum.

Vincent van Gogh (1853 - 1890)

A Quote by Walter H. James on mind, music, and trees

The great forest, absolutely silent, save for the music of the brook, the smell of the woods, the charm of the campfire, the fragrance of the bed of boughs, all work a peace in the mind which has been accustomed for so many months to the noise and rush of the great city, the jolting of the railway train, and the smoke and dust of the locomotive.

A Quote by unknown on pain, weakness, body, mind, and strength

Pain is weakness leaving the body. The question isn't how much more can you take, but how much more can you give. Just when you're ready to quit, your mind says push harder. You listen sensing an inner strength that wasn't there before, and suddenly you discover you no longer feel the pain.

A Quote by Masahisa Goi on mind, the self, god, and heart

To pray is, first of all, to let one's mind be empty.  It is to cast aside for a while "the self" that has existed until now, letting only God live in one's heart.
