Sometimes love is a sudden gift. Nature Quotes Image

Gift Quotes, Love Is Quotes, Love Quotes, Love Someone Quotes, Nature Quotes, People Quotes, Plan Quotes

Sometimes love is a surprise, an instant of recognition, a sudden gift at a sudden moment that makes everything different from then on. Some people will say that's not love, that you can't really love someone you don't know. But, I'm not so sure. Love doesn't seem to follow a plan; it's not a series of steps. It can hit with the force of nature--an earthquake, a tidal wave, a storm of wild relentless energy that is beyond your simple attempts at control.

Who is a friend? Nature Quotes Image

Be Yourself Quotes, Friendship Quotes, Nature Quotes

What is a friend?I will tell you. It is a person with whom you dare to be yourself. Your soul can be naked with her. She seems to ask of you to put on nothing, only to be what you are. She does not want you to be better or worse. When you are with her, you feel as a prisoner feels who has been declared innocent. You do not have to be on your guard. You can say what you think, so long as it is genuinely you. She understands those contradictions in your nature that lead others to misjudge you. With her you breathe freely. You can avow your little vanities and envies and hates and vicious sparks, your meannesses and absurdities and, in opening them up to her, they are lost, dissolved on the white ocean of her loyalty. She understands. You do not have to be careful. You can neglect her and ignore her. Best of all, you can keep still with her. It makes no matter. She loves you. She is like fire that purges to the bone. She understands. You can weep with her, sin with her, laugh with her, pray with her. Through it all - and underneath - she sees, knows and loves you.A friend? What is a friend? Just one, I repeat, with whom you dare to be yourself.

What counts is the kind of human you are Nature Quotes Image

Behavior Quotes, Inspirational Quotes, Motivational Quotes, Nature Quotes, Wisdom Quotes, Wise Quotes

What counts Is not the colour of your skin but the colour of your character; Is not the nature of your beliefs but the nature of your behavior; Is not the language that you speak but the words that you use; Is not where you live but how you live; Is not how much you earn but what you do to earn it; Is not where you are but how you got here; Is not that you are a human being but the kind of human are you being.

If nature be regarded as the teacher and we poor human beings Nature Quotes Image

Nature Quotes, Understanding Quotes

If nature be regarded as the teacher and we poor human beings as her pupils, the human race presents a very curious picture. We all sit together at a lecture and possess the necessary principles for understanding it, yet we always pay more attention to the chatter of our fellow students than to the lecturer's discourse. Or, if our neighbor copies something down, we sneak it from him, stealing what he himself may have heard imperfectly, and add it to our own errors of spelling and opinion.

An excess of development can undermine the most ephemeral but distinctive tool Nature Quotes Image

Nature Quotes

An excess of development can undermine the most ephemeral but distinctive tool a writer possesses: authorial voice. A writer's voice is as individual and marked as a thumbprint, and is a playwright's truest imprimatur. It is as innate as breathing, and can be as unique as any genetic code. By its very singular nature, it is seldom born in the act of collaboration. True authorial voice always pre-dates the first rehearsal of a text. And it is - and will always be - an author's most distinguishing and valuable feature.

Devotion is the essence of the path, and if we have in Nature Quotes Image

Confidence Quotes, Nature Quotes, Practice Quotes

Devotion is the essence of the path, and if we have in mind nothing but the guru and feel nothing but fervent devotion, whatever occurs is perceived as his blessing. If we simply practice with this constantly present devotion, this is prayer itself. When all thoughts are imbued with devotion to the guru, there is a natural confidence that this will take care of whatever may happen. All forms are the guru, all sounds are prayer, and all gross and subtle thoughts arise as devotion. Everything is spontaneously liberated in the absolute nature, like knots untied in the sky.

When the Jew says “mankind” he is talking about himself. It is Nature Quotes Image

Goal Quotes, Nature Quotes, People Quotes, Serve Quotes

When the Jew says "mankind" he is talking about himself. It is written in the Talmud, that only Jews were human beings, gentiles on the other hand were animals created to serve the chosen people. If looking back and comparing the corresponding articles in the "democratic" and "neutral" countries, one is astonished at the systematic nature of the propaganda whose final goal was the creation of a state of affairs in which a war was inevitable.

It is a moot question whether the origin of any kind of Nature Quotes Image

Gift Quotes, Nature Quotes, Progress Quotes

It is a moot question whether the origin of any kind of property is derived from nature at all. It is agreed by those who have seriously considered the subject that no individual has, of natural right, a separate property in an acre of land, for instance. By a universal law, indeed, whatever, whether fixed or movable, belongs to all men equally and in common is the property for the moment of him who occupies it; but when he relinquishes the occupation, the property goes with it. Stable ownership is the gift of social law, and is given late in the progress of society.

To be a religions man and to pray are really one and Nature Quotes Image

Nature Quotes, Wisdom Quotes

To be a religions man and to pray are really one and the same thing. To join in the thought of God with every thought of any importance that occurs to us ; in all our admiration of external nature, to regard it as the work of His wisdom ; to take counsel with God about all our plans, that we may be able to carry them out in His name ; and even in our most mirthful hours to remember His all-seeing eye ; this is the prayer without ceasing to which we are called, and which is really the essence of true religion.

The scientific observer of the realm of nature is in a sense Nature Quotes Image

Nature Quotes

The scientific observer of the realm of nature is in a sense naturally and inevitably disinterested. At least, nothing in the natural scene can arouse his bias. Furthermore, he stands completely outside of the natural so that his mind, whatever his limitations, approximates pure mind. The observer of the realm of history cannot be disinterested in the same way, for two reasons: first, he must look at history from some locus in history; secondly, he is to a certain degree engaged in its ideological conflicts.

The intellectual and moral satisfaction that I failed to gain from the Nature Quotes Image

Nature Quotes, People Quotes

The intellectual and moral satisfaction that I failed to gain from the utilitarianism of Bentham and Mill, the revolutionary methods of Marx and Lenin, the social contract theory of Hobbes, the "back to nature" optimism of Rousseau, and the superman philosophy of Nietzsche, I found in the nonviolent resistance philosophy of Gandhi. I came to feel that this was the only morally and practically sound method open to oppressed people in their struggle for freedom.

For the first time in history, the rational and the good are Nature Quotes Image

Nature Quotes

For the first time in history, the rational and the good are fully armed in the battle against evil. Here we finally find the answer to our paradox; now we can understand the nature of the social power held by evil. Ultimately, the evil, the irrational, truly has no power. The evil men’s control of morality is transient; it lives on borrowed time made possible only by the errors of the good. In time, as more honest men grasp the truth, evil’s stranglehold will be easily broken.
