Transcription

1 -101- When you go to bed at night, have for your pillow three things - love, hope, and forgiveness. You will awaken in the morning with a song in your heart. (Victor Hugo)

2 -102- The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who in times of great moral crisis maintain their neutrality. (Dante)

3 -103- To be really sorry for one s errors is like opening the door of heaven. (Hazrat Inayat Khan)

4 -104- People with opinions just go around bothering one another. (Buddha)

5 -105- If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music that he hears, however measured or far away. (Henry David Thoreau)

6 -106- Judge not, and you shall not be judged; Condemn not and you shall not be condemned; Forgive, and you shall be forgiven. (Jesus Christ)

7 -107- If anyone says, I love God, and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. (1 John 4: 20)

8 -108- Better never love, if that love makes us hate others. (Swami Vivekananda)

9 -109- When you call yourself an Indian or a Muslim, or a Christian, or a European, or anything else, you are being violent. Do you see why? Because you are separating yourself from the rest of mankind. When you separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by tradition it breeds violence. (J. Krishnamurti)

10 -110- The wise man does not argue; He remains silent and goes quietly on his path. (White Eagle)

11 -111- If fifty million people say a foolish thing, it is still a foolish thing. (Anatole France)

12 -112- It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society. (J. Krishnamurti)

13 -113- The keenest sorrow is to recognize ourselves as the sole creator of all our adversities. (Sophocles)

14 -114- The best portion of a good man s life is his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness. (William Wordsworth)

15 -115- If you help others, you will be helped, perhaps tomorrow, perhaps in one hundred years, but you will be helped. Nature must pay off the debt. It is a mathematical law and all of life is mathematics. (George I. Gurdjieff)

16 -116- Kindness is the root of righteousness. Kindness is the enemy of cruelty, harshness, rudeness. It softens the heart. It opens the door to heaven. (Swami Sivananda)

17 -117- He who wants to do good knocks at the gate; he who loves finds the gate open. (Tagore)

18 -118- Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. (Plato)

19 -119- If we could read the secret history of our enemies, we should find in each person s life sorrows and suffering enough to disarm all hostility. (Henry Wadsworth Longfellow)

20 -120- Gloom is an epidemic disease. All those who come in contact with gloomy people are immediately affected. A gloomy man should cover his face when he comes out. (Swami Sivananda)

21 -121- What is the use of going over the old track again? You must make tracks into the unknown. (Henry David Thoreau)

22 -122- Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

23 -123- I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death.

24 -124- Stand upright, speak thy thoughts, declare the truth thou hast, that all may share; be bold, proclaim it everywhere: They only live who dare. (Voltaire)

25 -125- For the ignorant, old age is winter; for the learned, old age is the harvest. (Yiddish saying)

26 -126- If you have peace of mind, contentment, old age is no unbearable burden. Without that, both youth and age are painful. (Sophocles)

27 -127- Where does poetry live? In the overpowering felt splendor every sane mind knows when it realizes - our life dance is only for a few magic seconds, from the heart saying, shouting, I am so damn alive! (Hafiz)

28 -128- The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone. (Harriet Beecher Stowe)

29 -129- Death is the bright side of life. (Tennyson)

30 -130- Death is the temporary end of a temporary phenomenon. (Buddha)

31 -131- Who knows but that this life is really death, and whether death is not what men call life? (Euripides)

32 -132- If I die, don t say that he died. Say he was dead, became alive, and was taken by the Beloved. (Rumi)

33 -133- The gods conceal from men the happiness of death, that they may endure life. (Lucan)

34 -134- The tomb is not a blind alley; it is a thoroughfare. It closes on the twilight, it opens on the dawn. (Victor Hugo)

35 -135- No university will teach you how to live so that when the time of dying comes, you can say: I lived well, I do not need to live again. (Nisargadatta)

36 -136- Death is a punishment to some, to some a gift, and to many a favor. (Seneca)

37 -137- The soul is immortal and clothed in many bodies successively. (Plato)

38 -138- Do not tire of crying out with the joy of being alive and you will hear no other cries. (Tuareg proverb)

39 -139- Death plucks my ear and says, Live - I am coming. (Virgil)

40 -140- May your soul be happy; journey joyfully. (Rumi)
