A Quote by Jane Goodall on awareness, thought, effect, environment, society, and jane goodall

A Quote by Daniel Odier on tantra, action, thought, and transmission

There is only one way to receive transmission. When I tell you something, do it immediately, without the least wavering thought. That’s it. Learn. Open your heart and act. Thought stops action. It perverts it into calculated gesture stripped of grace and efficiency.

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on listening, words, meaning, peace, silence, thought, bird, talking, fly, speaking, solitutde, meditation, chatter, gossip, and drapery talk

You talk when you cease to be at peace with your thoughts;
And when you can no longer dwell in the solitude of your heart you live in your lips, and sound is a diversion and a pastime.
And in much of your talking, thinking is half murdered.
For thought is a bird of space, that in a cage of words may indeed unfold its wings but cannot fly.

Kahlil Gibran (1883 - 1931)

A Quote by Robert Francis Kennedy on action, beginning, belief, discovery, earth, ignorance, injustice, men, misery, protestantism, thought, violence, women, work, and world

Some believe there is nothing one man or one woman can do against the enormous array of the world's ills -- against misery, against ignorance, or injustice and violence. Yet many of the world's great movements, of thought and action, have flowed from the work of a single man. A young monk began the Protestant reformation, a young general extended an empire from Macedonia to the borders of the earth, and a young woman reclaimed the territory of France. It was a young Italian explorer who discovered the New World, and 32 year old Thomas Jefferson who proclaimed that all men are created equal. 'Give me a place to stand,' said Archimedes, 'and I will move the world.' These men moved the world, and so can we all.

Robert F. Kennedy (1925 - 1968)

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on belief, genius, heart, men, privacy, and thought

To believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your private heart is true for all men-that is genius.
