A Quote by Sage Vasishtha on self-knowledge, knowledge, truth, guru, preceptor, scipture, works, inquiry, wise, company, holy, satsang, inner light, light, darkness, and inertia

Self-knowledge or knowledge of truth is not had by resorting to a guru (preceptor) nor by the study of scripture, nor by good works: it is attained only by means of inquiry inspired by the company of wise and holy men. One's inner light alone is the means, naught else. When this inner light is kept alive, it is not affected by the darkness of inertia.

A Quote by Alani on snow, winter, spring, wise, man, bored, life, words, quote, chinese, and boots

a wise man once asked,

"When the snow melts what do you do?"

"Stay inside and wish it were spring..." replied the girl.

After slapping himself on his forehead he sighed and replied,

"You avoid the yellow snow..." he said pointing to her boots now sunken in yellowish substance.

A Quote by Domus Ulixes on men, women, and wise

Normal men, speak, listen and than think.
Wise men, listen, think and then speak.
Wise women, listen, think and speak all at the same time.
While normal women don't seem to think or listen at all,
to normal men that is.

A Quote by Vernon Howard on everyone, existence, wise, challenge, investigate, trouble, people, deliver, force, entity, power, higher, and nature

Everyone must concede that there is in existence something wiser than himself. Now there is a challenge, there is a challenge which few even investigate. We're going to do that now. Let's see what we're talking about. All troubled people, which is all people, must if they are going to be delivered from themselves, must make the concession that there is a force, an entity, a power that is higher than their own present nature.
