My Favourite Quotes

“Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.”~ Buddha

All spiritual teachings are only meant to make us retrace our steps to our Original Source. We need not to acquire anything new, only give up false ideas and useless accretions. Instead of doing this, we try to grasp something strange and mysterious because we believe happiness lies elsewhere.
~ From The Essential Teachings of Ramana Maharshi

Be the Change you want to see in the World
~ Mahatma Gandhi

The question of real, lasting, world peace
concerns human beings, so basic human feelings are also it’s roots.
Through inner peace, genuine world peace can be achieved.
In this, the importance of individual responsibility is quite clear;
an atmosphere of peace must first be created within ourselves.
Then gradually extended to include our families, our communities
and ultimately the whole planet.
~ Dalai Lama

"When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you,
But merely opening your hands to receive something better."

"To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did."

"How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours."

"The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you."
