Religious Thought 167

To those who have conquered themselves, the will is a friend. But it is the enemy of those who have not found the Self within them.
- Bhagavad Gita 6:6

Real love is not based on attachment, but on altruism. In this case, your compassion will remain as a humane response to suffering as long as beings continue to suffer.
- His Holiness the Dalai Lama

You must turn your intelligence into ignorance; you must become mad. Whenever you see something that may yield material profit, flee from it. Curse anyone who praises you. Lend your wealth to the poor and the feckless. Abandon the security of your home, and live in places of danger. Throw away your reputation, and embrace dishonor and disgrace. I shall test my intellect to the limit; and then I shall make myself mad.
- Rumi

To God, our journey is as important as our destinations.
- Beth Moore
One who says, "Let good people [and only good people] bless You," is considered to have spoken heresy.
- Mishna Megillah 4:9
