We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars. You have to believe in yourself.
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. Listen to the silence as it echoes around you. Ancient spirits dance to it.
It is better to die for something than to live for nothing. Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life.
There are times when a man should be content with what he has, but never with what he is. The only way to discover the limits of the possible is to go beyond them, to the impossible. A man does not have to be an angel in order to be saint.
Be gentle with yourself. If you will not be your own unconditional friend, who will be? If you are playing an opponent and you are also opposing yourself you are going to be outnumbered. O Krishna, the mind is restless, turbulent, strong and unyielding I consider it as difficult to subdue as the wind.
O Krishna, the mind is restless, turbulent, strong and unyielding I consider it as difficult to subdue as the wind. Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life. What would it be like if you lived each day, each breath, as a work of art in progress? Imagine that you are a Masterpiece unfolding, every second of every day a work of art taking form with every breath.
Can you imagine what I would do if I could do all I can? We do not know who we are until we see what we can do.
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? Forgiving those who hurt us is the key to personal peace. A mind is like a canvas: The more open your mind, The more colors you can use.
Be the change that you wish to see in the world. Do noble things, do not dream them all day long. Listen to the silence as it echoes around you. Ancient spirits dance to it.
