separation

A Quote by J. (Jiddu) Krishnamurti on problems, separation, and understanding

If we really understand the problem, the answer will come out of it, because the answer is not separate from the problem.

A Quote by Ahmad Ibn `Ata'Allah on heart, possessions, reality, and separation

The reality of the invocation is when the Invoked takes possession of the heart, and He is One. Separation and multiplicity exist before that for as long as the invoker is in the station of invoking with the tongue or with the heart.

A Quote by Ahmad Ibn `Ata'Allah on contentment, egotism, evil, god, good, leadership, needs, obstacles, people, relationships, reputation, and separation

Among their attributes: renouncing both worlds from their hearts, and preferring their brethren among God's creatures to what they possess; relying upon God Most High in all their affairs; being content with everything that happens to them which the ego detests; and bearing patiently sufferings and separation from one's homeland. They dissociate themselves from creatures without believing that there is evil in them, but rather out of preference for the Creator over creatures. They sever relationships, surmount obstacles, and strive in fulfilling the needs of people after emptying themselves: for whosoever strives to do that before emptying himself is actually seeking leadership and a good reputation.

A Quote by Hermann Hesse on admiration, feeling, love, lovers, and separation

Lovers should not separate from each other after making love without admiring each other, without being conquered as well as conquering, so that no feeling of satiation or desolation arises nor the horrid feeling of misusing or having been misused.

A Quote by Henry Ward Beecher on absence, change, cities, country, separation, and silence

Nothing marks the change from the city to the country so much as the absence of grinding noises. The country is never silent. But its sounds are separate, distinct, and as it were, articulate.

A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on separation

I do not know but thoughts written down thus in a journal might be printed in the same form with greater advantage than if the related ones were brought together into separate essays.

Make the most of your regrets; never smother your sorrow, but tend and cherish it till it come to have a separate and integral interest. To regret deeply is to live afresh.

A Quote by Hamet Doerr on belief, friendship, good, language, nationality, and separation

Don Ricardo Evertom, said the priest, has left footprints in this soil that neither rain nor wind can scrap away. Nationality and language do not separate friends. . . . It makes no difference what a man believes if he is a good person.

A Quote by Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky on animals, creation, day, god, love, mystery, perception, plants, separation, time, understanding, and world

Love all God's creation, both the whole and every grain of sand. Love every leaf, every ray of light. Love the animals, love the plants, love each separate thing. If you love each thing you will perceive the mystery of God in all; and when once you perceive this, you will from that time on grow every day to a fuller understanding of it until you come at last to love the whole world with a love that will then be all-embracing and universal.

Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821 - 1881)
