Gems of Wisdom

A person who is not disturbed by the incessant flow of desires—that enter like rivers into the ocean which is ever being filled but is always still—can alone achieve peace, and not the man who strives to satisfy such desires.

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

Emmanuel

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

Nurture your mind with great thoughts.

Benjamin Disraeli

The unexamined life is not worth living.

Socrates

The only ones among you who will be really happy are those who will have sought and found how to serve.

Albert Schweitzer

To have striven, to have made an effort, to have been true to certain ideals—this alone is worth the struggle. We are here to add what we can to, not to get what we can from life.

Sir William Osler

You are used to listening to the buzz of the world, but now is the time to develop the inner ear that listens to the inner world. It is time to have a foot in each world and it can be done.

St. Bartholomew
