A Quote by Ashtavakra Gita on self, awareness, and senses

The Self 
O Master, Tell me how to find Detachment, wisdom, and freedom! 
Child, If you wish to be free, Shun the poison of the senses. 
Seek the nectar of truth, Of love and forgiveness, Simplicity and happiness. 
Earth, fire and water, The wid and the sky-- You are none of these. 
If you wish to be free, Know you are the Self, The witness of all these, The heart of awareness. 
Set your body aside Sit in your own awareness. 
You will at once be happy, Forever still, Forever free. 
(and so on.) Ashtavakra Gita Translation: The Heart of Awareness, Thomas Byrom

A Quote by Ken Wilber on divinity, higher-self, compassion, good and evil, senses, radiance, god, and true-self

Divinity has one ultimate secret, which it will also whisper in your ear if your mind becomes quieter than the fog at sunset: the God of this world is found within, and you know it is found within: in those hushed silent times when the mind becomes still, the body relaxes into infinity, the senses expand to become one with the world- in those glistening times, a subtle luminosity, a serene radiance, a brilliantly transparent clarity shimmers as the true nature of all manifestation, erupting every now and then in a compassionate Radiance before whom all idols retreat, a love so fierce it adoringly embraces both light and dark, both good and evil, both pleasure and pain equally....

A Quote by Isha De Lubicz on frantic, hurry, frenzy, and senses

The life of the senses, when indulged so far, becomes extremely exacting.  It is simple enough to arouse one’s physical appetites, but not so easy to control them.  Nerves trained to excitement feel an unhealthy craving for it, and when the life of brain and senses has been accustomed to be fed continually from without by an unending flow of secondhand thoughts and images, of catchy tunes and twitching rhythms, it calls for these things because they render individual effort superfluous, and shake to pieces any notion of real values.  That is our modern world, dancing the infernal roundelay of haste, ever more deeply involved in the quest for variety and novelty.

            A mind trained to these frantic gymnastics will clearly show two characteristics; It will be insatiable, always preferring quantity to quality, and it will suffer from the need for speed.

A Quote by John Muir on john muir, senses, nature, reality, and world

If the Creator were to bestow a new set of senses upon us, or slightly remodel the present ones, leaving all the rest of nature unchanged, we should never doubt we were in another world, and so in strict reality we should be, just as if all the world besides our senses were changed.

John Muir (1838 - 1914)

Oh! joy for he who has escaped from this world of perfumes and color!
For beyond these colors and these perfumes, these are other colors in the heart and the soul.

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on senses and body

Hungry, you're a dog, angry and bad-natured.
having eaten your fill, you become a carcass;
you lie down like a wall, senseless.
At one time a dog, at another time a carcass,
how will you run with lions, or follow the saints?

Mevlana Rumi (1207 - 1273)
