Spend your brief moment according to nature's law, and serenely greet the journey's end as an olive falls when it is ripe, blessing the branch that bare it, and giving thanks to the tree that gave it life. - Marcus Aurelius
What we have to learn, in both meditation and in life, is to be free of attachment to the good experiences, and free of aversion to the negative ones. - Sogyal Rinpoche
God has placed in each soul a true guide to the light, but man struggles to find life outside himself, unaware that the life he is seeking is within him. - Gibran Khalil
Life is short. Time is fleeting. Realise the Self. Purity of the heart is the gateway to God. Aspire. Renounce. Meditate. Be good; do good. Be kind; be compassionate. Inquire, know Thyself. - William Hazlitt
The universal order and the personal order are nothing but different expressions and manifestations of a common underlying principle. - Marcus Aurelius
In man's life, time is but a moment; being, a flux; sense is dim; the material frame corruptible; soul, an eddy of breath; fortune a thing inscrutable, and fame precarious.
Bless are you if you can live each day in such a way that you can say at its close, “I Have done the best I could today for both God and man.”
