“When everyone knows

Few mind-provoking quotes. Simple live wisdom, put in beautiful words; makes me wonder: why I did not think it myself. But perhaps I did, but never wrote it down.

“To love life through labor is to be intimate with life’s inmost secret.”
Kahlil Gibran

“Thus, the art of life is not seen as holding to yang and banishing yin, but as keeping the two in balance, because there cannot be one without the other.”
-Alan Watts

“Love is the divine Mother’s arms; when those arms are spread, every soul falls into them.

The Sufis of all ages have been known for their beautiful personality. It does not mean that among them there have not been people with great powers, wonderful powers and wisdom. But beyond all that, what is most known of the Sufis is the human side of their nature: that tact which attuned them to wise and foolish, to poor and rich, to strong and weak — to all. They met everyone on his own plane, they spoke to everyone in his own language. What did Jesus teach when he said to the fishermen, ‘Come hither, I will make you fishers of men?’ It did not mean, ‘I will teach you ways by which you get the best of man.’ It only meant: your tact, your sympathy will spread its arms before every soul who comes, as mother’s arms are spread out for her little ones.”
– Hazrat Inayat Khan

“Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Once in a while it really hits people that they don’t have to experience the world in the way they have been told.”
– Alan Keightley.

“Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen… yourself, right now, right down here on Earth. “
– Bradley Whitford

“When everyone knows beauty as beautiful,  there is already ugliness;  When everyone knows good as goodness,  there is already evil.

“To be” and “not to be” arise mutually; Difficult and easy are mutually realized; Long and short are mutually contrasted; High and low are mutually posited; Before and after are in mutual sequence.”
-Lao-tzu

“Time is a great teacher, but unfortunately it kills all its pupils.”
– Hector Berlioz
