Quotes 12/16/13

lilosophieDecember 16, 2013

Security is mostly superstition. It does not exit in Nature, nor do the children of man as a rule experience it.
Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure.
Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.
To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the pressure of fate is strength undefeatable.
Helen Keller - "Let us have Faith" (1940)

Whenever your inner life is clouded, your influence in the world is under a shadow. If you are fearful, you will be attacked; if you cloak genuine mysteries in dogma, opportunities for new insight will be lost. If you vacillate in upholding your principles, you will be tested. Yet, when you are firm and strong, the power of truth can break through even the most stubborn minds
The I Ching

Be like the sun for grace and mercy.
Be like the night to cover others faults.
Be like running water for generosity.
Be like Death for rage and anger.
Be like earth for modesty.
Appear as you are. Be as you appear.
Rumi
