A Quote by David Oman McKay on exercise, justice, language, meditation, prayer, privacy, reflection, religion, soul, spirituality, and words

Meditation is the language of the soul. It is defined as a form of private devotion or spiritual exercise, consisting in deep, continued reflection on some religious theme. Meditation is a form of prayer [that is not and cannot be just words.]

A Quote by Chung-feng Ming-pen on birth, death, logic, meaning, principles, privacy, reason, spirituality, understanding, words, and writing

The koans do not represent the private opinion of a single man, but rather the highest principle . . . that accords with the spiritual source, tallies with the mysterious meaning, destroys birth-and-death, and transcends the passions. It cannot be understood by logic; it cannot be transmitted in words; it cannot be explained in writing; it cannot be measured by reason. It is like . . . a great fire that consumes all who come near it.

Chung-feng Ming-pen (1263 - 1323)

A Quote by Carl L. Becker on abuse, advertising, laws, lies, practicality, privacy, profit, questions, speech, and time

No one can deny that much of our modern advertising is essentially dishonest; and it can be maintained that to lie freely and all the time for private profit is not to abuse the right of free speech, whether it is a violation of the law or not. But again the practical question is, how much lying for private profit is to be permitted by law?

A Quote by Benjamin Franklin on earth, interest, men, privacy, time, wisdom, and world

It is wonderful how preposterously the affairs of the world are managed. We assemble parliaments and councils to have the benefit of collected wisdom, but we necessarily have, at the same time, the inconvenience of their collected passions, prejudices and private interests: for regulating commerce an assembly of great men is the greatest fool on earth,

A Quote by Ayn Rand on ideas, interest, meaning, and privacy

The idea that 'the public interest' supersedes private interests and rights can have but one meaning: that the interests and rights of some individuals take precedence over the interests and rights of others.

A Quote by Ayn Rand on america, fortune, genius, good, interest, men, privacy, and sacrifice

America's abundance was not created by public sacrifices to "the common good," but by the productive genius of free men who pursued their own personal interests and the making of their own private fortunes.

A Quote by Ayn Rand on civilization, existence, laws, men, privacy, progress, and society

Civilization is the progress toward a society of privacy. The savage's whole existence is public, ruled by the laws of his tribe. Civilization is the process of setting man free from men.
