Evil deeds dreaded by the soul will not afflict The compassionate who foster and protect all life. This wide and wind-swept fertile earth is witness to the truth That misery is not for men who keep compassion.
- Tirukkural 25: 244-245
When you are completely clear, there is no subjective distortion; when you are completely pure, there is true perception. But even if you are thus through and through, this is still now the transcendental key. When the wind and waves have died out, the ocean of mind is as is; when you get to the bottom of the ocean of mind, for the first time you see the black pearl.
What I fear most for my people are the hypocrites, who talk wisely, yet act unjustly.
- Hadith The Prophet Muhammad (SAW), as reported by Umar bin al-Khattab
By the time the average Christian gets his temperature up to normal, everybody thinks he has a fever!
- Watchman Nee
When a father gives to his son, both laugh. When a son gives to his father, both cry.
- Yiddish proverb
