A Quote by Knut Hamsun on earth, light, nature, people, and sea

Earth and sea merged, the sea tossed itself in the air
in a fantastic dance, into the shapes of men
and horses and tattered banners.
I stood in the lee of an overhanging rock
and thought of many things.

Knut Hamsun

A Quote by Howard Thurman on life and people

Don't ask what the world needs.  Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it.  Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.

A Quote by Bishop JOSEPHhttp://www.antiochianl on god, christianity, gospel, service, forgiveness, anger, love, people, world, and gratitude

We cannot serve anyone with whom we have animosity.  This is why the Gospels stress forgiveness.  Our Lord even forgave those who crucified Him, crying out from the cross, "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do." (Luke 23:34)  If we are to serve the world, we must first be able to forgive everyone and anyone.  The slightest amount of unforgiveness or anger towards anyone is enough to keep us from God, for in God there is only love.

Bishop Joseph

A Quote by Carl Edward Sagan on earth and people

Look again at that dot.  That's here.  That's home.  That's us.  On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives.  The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every 'superstar,' every 'supreme leader,' every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there - on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

Carl Sagan (1934 - 1996)

A Quote by D. Elton Trueblood on age, discovery, life, people, and trees

A man has made at least a start on discovering the meaning of human life when he plants shade trees under which he knows full well he will never sit.

A Quote by Paul John Roach on answers, awareness, intuition, mystery, people, and questions

Some adopt a rigid system that answers all possible questions and so you don't have to think beyond its systems.  The other response is much more seemingly fragile but much more expansive, because it doesn't lay down a rigid framework.  It allows you to move within the mystery of it.  And that seems to be flowering right now.  I think people are more and more interested in embracing that because they've been through everything else.  It is a willingness to embrace mystery, a willingness to embrace not knowing, allowing that intuitive awareness to speak.
