Krishna in the Bhagavad-gita

Your mind cannot possibly understand God. Your heart already knows. Minds are designed for carrying out the orders of the heart


The man with a toothache thinks everyone happy whose teeth are sound. The poverty-stricken man makes the same mistake about the rich man.

George Bernard Shaw

Teachers open the door, but you must enter by yourself.

Chinese proverb

The earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need but not every man's greed.

Mahatma Gandhi
