truth

A Quote by William Shakespeare on adversity, truth, value, sermons, and stones

Sweet are the uses of adversity
Which, like the toad, ugly and venomous,
Wears yet a precious jewel in his head; 
And this our life, exempt from human haunt,
Finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, 
Sermons in stones, and good in everything.
I would not change it

William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)

A Quote by St. John Chrysostom on god, christianity, healing, miracles, spirituality, love, freedom, hope, and truth

For if you change from inhumanity to alms giving, you have stretched fourth the hand that was withered.  If you withdraw from theaters and go to church, you have cured the lame foot.  If you draw back your eyes from a harlot ... you have opened them when they were blind ... These are the greatest miracles.

Saint John Chrysostom

A Quote by Elder Cleopa on god, christianity, protection, magic, witches, victory, freedom, truth, life, and peace

Do not do anything without signing yourself with the sign of the Cross!  When you depart on a journey, when you begin your work, when you go to study, when you are alone, and when you are with other people, seal yourself with the Holy Cross on your forehead, your body, your chest, your heart, your lips, your eyes, your ears.  All of you should be sealed with the sign of Christ's victory over hell.  Then you will no longer be afraid of charms, evil spirits, or sorcery, because these are dissolved by the power of the Cross like wax before fire and like dust before the wind"
Elder Cleopa (+1998)

A Quote by Gourasana on gourasana, meditation, spiritual desire, god, longing, truth, incarnation of god, going within, and modern-day meditation

In spiritual life, in the search for truth, in the search for God, desire is everything. Desire is a force that moves you, not only in spiritual life, but it moves you from one place to another in this material world. The situations that you create are largely based upon desires. So just as much of your material life is created by your desires, so is your spiritual life, because it is only by spiritual desire that one makes spiritual advancement in meditation.

Sometimes when a person goes within and begins touching upon a deep place, they cannot help but cry because of an incredible longing that it brings. Some feel it is like coming home after having been away for  so long, and it might feel like a sadness and a happiness at the same time.

For many people, to get in touch with their emotional side is a wonderful thing – to finally not be inhibited to let go, to express themselves in that way. However, for those that do not feel this, there are so many ways to truth; the ways vary so greatly. Don’t think that you need to follow the same path as the next person.

If you have not yet succeeded on an inward journey, be
gentle with yourself. Give yourself time. Gently let
yourself go deeper. Whatever experience comes to you,
let it take you over. Welcome it. Relish it.

A Quote by Elder Ephraim of Philotheou on god, christianity, courage, hope, mindfulness, spirituality, self control, truth, and love

"Be careful with your mouth, but primarily with your mind; do not let evil thoughts start talking to you.  Do not let your mouth say words that could perhaps wound your brother.  Let your mouth put forth words which are fragrant: words of consolation, courage and hope.  It is a person's mouth that reveals his interior, inner man."

A Quote by unknown on truth, peace, and calm

Truth, at best, is a partially told story, allowing another opportunity for acceptance, and then peaceful calm.

A Quote by Father Seraphim Rose on god, christianity, spirituality, humility, poverty, struggles, life, truth, freedom, and peace

"Don't worry too much about how spiritually poor you are_God sees that,but for you it is expected to trust in God and pray to Him as best you can,never to fall into despair and to struggle according to your strength.If you ever begin to think you are spiritually_"well off"_then you can know for sure that you aren't!True spiritual life,even on the most elementary level,is always accompanied by suffering and difficulties.Therefore you should rejoice in all your difficulties and sorrows."

A Quote by John Lennon on peace, love, truth, and eternal

If someone thinks that love and peace is a cliche that must have been left behind in the Sixties, that's his problem. Love and peace are eternal.

A Quote by Kenny Loggins on letting go, love, courage, truth, and relationships

You must have love as the core; it takes courage to be willing to constantly tell the truth to each other and risk letting the relationship go.
