What I have learned from my work up to now, is to try to be open, but also protect myself by not letting the good and the evil get too much importance.

A Quote by Marge Piercy on love and openness

It hurts to love wide open
stretching the muscles...

It hurts to thwart the reflexes
of grab, of clutch; to love and let
go again and again.

A Quote by Muhammad Asad on answers, questions, god, secrets, and openness

...all the answers are but waiting for us while we, poor fools, ask questions and wait for the secrets of God to open themselves up to us: when they, all the while, are waiting for us to open ourselves up to them...

A Quote by William Butler Yeats on blessings, remorse, surrender, escape, joy, openness, heart, laughter, and singing

When such as I cast out remorse
So great a sweetness flows into the breast
We must laugh and we must sing,
We are blest by everything,
Everything we look upon is blessed.

William Butler Yeats (1865 - 1939)

A Quote by Pema Chodron on presence, openness, and practice

If your everyday practice is open to all your emotions, to all the people you meet, to all the situations you encounter, without closing down, trusting that you can do that - then that will take you are far as you can go.  And then you'll understand all the teachings that anyone has ever taught.

A Quote by Warren Bennis on leadership, openness, and transparency

I'd always rather err on the side of openness. But there's a difference between optimum and maximum openness, and fixing that boundary is a judgment call. The art of leadership is knowing how much information you're going to pass on -- to keep people motivated and to be as honest, as upfront, as you can. But, boy, there really are limits to that.

A Quote by John Welwood on love, purity, and openness

The words "I love you," spoken in moments of genuine appreciation, wonder, or caring arise from something perfectly pure within us - the capacity to open ourselves and say yes without reserve. Such moments of pure openheartedness bring us as close to natural perfection as we can come in this life.
