Religious Thought 199

The moon is one, but on agitated water it produces many reflections. Similarly ultimate reality is one, yet it appears to be many in a mind agitated by thoughts.
- Maharamayana

Whose minds are well-developed in the factors of self-awakening, who delight in non-clinging, relinquishing grasping-- resplendent, their effluents ended: they, in the world, are Unbound.
- Dhammapada, 6, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.

If you are dependable, honest, virtuous, and content in Allah's will, no harm shall come your way.
- Hadith The Prophet Muhammad (SAW), as reported by AbdAllah bin Amr

We must alter our lives in order to alter our hearts, for it is impossible to live one way and pray another.
- William Law

Holiness is the essence of all moral perfection.
- Kaufmann Kohler, "Jewish Theology"
