A Quote by Saint Dorotheos of Gaza on god, truth, spirituallity, self, growth, path, virtues, heart, thoughts, spirit, and middleway

Virtues are in the middle, the royal way about which the saintly elder (Saint Basil the Great) said, "Travel on the royal way and count the miles."  As I said, the virtues are at the midpoint between excess and laxness.  That is why it is written, "Do not turn to the right or the left" (Prov 4:27) but travel on the "royal way" (Num. 20:17).  Saint Basil also says, "The person who does not allow his thoughts to incline towards excess or deprivation but directs it to the midpoint, that of virtue, is upright in heart."

A Quote by Elder Cleopa on god, christianity, spirituality, evil, freedom, path, truth, love, hope, and fear

"If you want to go straight before God, you need two walls.  Not of brick or stone or earth, but two spiritual walls.  Have fear of God on the right, because the Prophet Daniel says, 'With fear of God, man is diverted from all evil.'  On the left have fear of death because the Son of Sirach says, 'Son, remember your end and you will not sin.'  These two good deeds --- fear of God and remembrance of death --- deliver a man from all sin."

Elder Cleopa Ilie (+1998)

No one spiritual path is better than another, although one may accept the universe's role in life more than another.

A Quote by Robert Svoboda on wisdom, words, confined, landscape, finger, meaning, jesus, import, and path

Living wisdom cannot be confined within words, but it can be hinted at through situations, much as a specific feature of an otherwise undistinguished landscape can often be discerned by following the path projected by a pointing finger. "Them that have ears, let them hear," said Jesus; whoever "hears" the inner import of words will be able to "see" their inward meaning.

A Quote by V. T. Neelkantan on good fortune, libraries, open road, path, free world, and travel

Afoot and lighthearted I take to the open road,
Healthy, free, the world before me,
The long brown path before me leading whenever I choose,
Henceforth I ask not good fortune, I am myself good fortune,
Henceforth I whimper no more, postpone no more, need nothing,
Done with indoor complaints, libraries, querulous criticism,
Strong & Content I travel The Open Road.

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on tread the path, path, saved, dharmas, variety, purpose, buddha, buddha-body, and unexcelled path

I, ever knowing the living beings
Who tread the Path and those who do not
In response to those who may be saved
Preach to them a variety of dharmas,
Each time having this thought:
'How may I cause the beings
To contrive to enter the Unexcelled Path
and quickly to perfect the Buddha-body?'

Buddha (563 - 483 BC)

A Quote by Marcus Aurelius Antoninus on bitterness, choice, focus, path, point of view, questions, and reality

A cucumber is bitter. - Throw it away. -
There briars in the road? - Turn aside from them.
This is enough.  Do not add, And why were such things made in the world?

Marcus Aurelius (121 - 180)
