Religious Thought 162

This awakening you have known comes not Through logic and scholarship, but from Close association with a realized teacher. Wise are you, Nachiketa, because you seek The Self eternal. May we have more Seekers like you!
- Katha Upanishad

Happiness cannot come from hatred or anger. Nobody can say, "Today I am happy because this morning I was very angry." On the contrary, people feel uneasy and sad and say, "Today I am not happy because I lost my temper this morning." Through kindness, whether at our own level or at the national and international level, through mutual understanding and through mutual respect, we will get peace, we will get happiness, and we will get genuine satisfaction.
- His Holiness the Dalai Lama

The Prophet once drew a line and said, "This is the path of faith." Then he drew several lines on either side and said, "On these lines you may encounter the devil. But this path of mine is the straight path. So follow it."
- Hadith Reported by Abd'Allah bin Mas'ud

I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting system though which God speaks to us every hour; if we still only tune in.
- George Washington Carver

It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man. It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes.
- Psalm 118:8
