A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on tread the path, path, saved, dharmas, variety, purpose, buddha, buddha-body, and unexcelled path

I, ever knowing the living beings
Who tread the Path and those who do not
In response to those who may be saved
Preach to them a variety of dharmas,
Each time having this thought:
'How may I cause the beings
To contrive to enter the Unexcelled Path
and quickly to perfect the Buddha-body?'

Buddha (563 - 483 BC)

A Quote by Chinua Achebe on diversity, variety, and multiplicity

Diversity is not an abnormality but the very reality of our planet. The human world manifests the same reality and will not seek our permission to celebrate itself in the magnificence of its endless varieties. Civility is a sensible attribute in this kind of world we have; narrowness of heart and mind is not.
~ Chinua Achebe, 1930- ~

A Quote by Sir Christopher Wren on beauty, confusion, respect, rules, variety, and vices

In things to be seen at once, much variety makes confusion, another vice of beauty. In things that are not seen at once, and have no respect one to another, great variety is commendable, provided this variety transgress not the rules of optics and geometry.
