A cloud does not know why it moves in just such a direction and at such a speed, it feels an impulsion, this is the place to go now. But the sky knows the reasons and the patterns behind the clouds, and you will know, too, when you lift yourself high enough to see beyond horizons. The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart. The rung of a ladder was never meant to rest upon, but only to hold a mans foot long enough to enable him to put the other somewhat higher.
I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do, or any kindness or abilities that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer it or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again. It is better to die for something than to live for nothing. The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart.
O Krishna, the mind is restless, turbulent, strong and unyielding I consider it as difficult to subdue as the wind. We outgrow people, places, and things as we unfold. We may be saddened when old friends say their piece and leave our lives… but let them go. They were at a different stage and looking in a different direction Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.
There are always two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it. Be the change that you wish to see in the world. When we seek to discover the best in others, we somehow bring out the best in ourselves.
With my freckles and messy hair, bruised knee and chapped lips this morning I am splendidly imperfect and alive! Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns. I am thankful thorns have roses
Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens. Who looks outside, dreams who looks inside, awakes.
We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars. One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar.
How soon will you realise that the only thing you do not have is the direct experience that there is nothing you need that you do not have? The method of the enterprising is to plan with audacity, and execute with vigor, to sketch out a map of possibilities and then to treat them as probabilities. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.
There are times when a man should be content with what he has, but never with what he is. It is better to die for something than to live for nothing.
