A Quote by Richard Rorty on inter-being, connectness, oneness, and non-dualism

There is nothing to be known about anything except an initially large, and forever expandable, web of relations to other things. Everything that can serve as a term of relation can be dissolved into another set of relations, and so on for ever. There are, so to speak, relations all the way down, all the way up, and all the way out in every direction: you never reach something which is not just one more nexus of relations.

A Quote by Alfred Emanuel Sørensen on self, non-dualism, simplicity, and acceptance

In this life play I have not been in quest of Guru,
God, Truth, Grace, Salvation, nirvana, or power lust.
I had no ambition to be different from what I am.
Blessedly, I had escaped headucation, and was
free of any imposed knowledge. I had no property.

I did not marry. I did not belong to any cliques
or creed. I was not attracted to their magnetism.

I felt all is within our Self.

I had nothing to assert or resent.
Nor had I anything to boast about or regret.

I was fully contented.
I had joy in that which is.

A Quote by Nagarjuna on compassion and non-dualism

Just as the grammarian makes one study grammar,
A Buddha teaches according to the tolerance of his students;
Some he urges to refrain from sins, others to do good,
Some to rely on dualism, other on non-dualism;
And to some he teaches the profound,
The terrifying, the practice of enlightenment,
Whose essence is emptiness that is compassion

Nagarjuna (c.100 - 200 AD)
