Wisdom Quotes and Wise Sayings

Karen Armstrong wisdom quote

"The spiritual message of the stranger, the Other

And sometimes it's the very otherness of a stranger, someone who doesn't belong to our ethnic or ideological or religious group, an otherness that can repel us initially, but which can jerk us out of our habitual selfishness, and give us intonations of that sacred otherness, which is God."

Father Albert D'Souza spiritual wisdom saying

"For a long time it has seemed to me that life was about to begin; Real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be got through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life."

Kahlil Gibran Quotes

"Your daily life is your temple and your religion.

Whenever you enter into it take with you your all.

Take the plough and the forge and the mallet and the lute,

The things you have fashioned in necessity or for delight.

For in reverie you cannot rise above your achievements nor fall lower than your failures.

And take with you all men:

For in adoration you cannot fly higher than their hopes nor humble yourself lower than their despair."

Anthony de Mello wisdom quote

What is love?"

"The total absence of fear," said the Master.

"What is it we fear?"

"Love," said the Master.

Hafiz (Persian poet) quote. Sufi wisdom

Admit something: Everyone you see, you say to them, "Love me". Of course you do not do this out loud, otherwise someone would call the cops. Still, though, think about this, this great pull in us to connect.

Siddharta Gautama Buddha, Buddhist saying

"He who holds back rising anger like a rolling chariot, him I call a real driver; other people are but holding the reins"

Paramahamsa Nithyananda quote on meditation

We are born a flowing river,
But through the years,
We became frozen; we stop flowing
And became like a block of ice.
The process of melting this block of ice
Back into a river is Meditation.
