“The true seeker of knowledge naturally strives for truth, and is not content with common opinion, but soars with undimmed and unwearied passion until he grasps the essential nature of things…”
Plato’s Republic 490b, translated from the original Greek
“The mind is like a parachute, it only works when it’s open.”
“All truth passes through three stages. First it is ridiculed, second it is violently opposed, and third it is accepted as self-evident.”
“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”
“Don’t let school interfere with your education.”
The warrior of light is aware of his or her immense strength, and will never fight with anyone who does not deserve the honor of combat.
Paulo Coelho, Ode
True imagination follows nature, false imagination deviates from it.
John Lash, The Promise of a Lonely Planet
In a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.
I have no money, no resources, no hopes. I am the happiest man alive.
I have been and still am a seeker,
but have ceased to question stars and books;
I have begun to listen to the teachings my blood whispers to me.
Consciousness shines in various external and internal forms.
There is no existence of objects apart from consciousness.
Therefore the world is simply a form of consciousness.
Only When You Drink From the River of Silence Shall You Indeed Sing. And When You Have Reached the Mountain Top, Then You Shall Begin to Climb. And When the Earth Shall Claim Your Limbs, Then Shall You Truly Dance.
