Quotable expressions

Living well is the best revenge.

Do not regret growing older; it is a privilege denied to many.

A strong person is not the one who doesn't cry. A strong person is one who cries + sheds tears for the moment then gets up + fights again.

Terence McKenna on the power of words to seduce minds.

"Pre-literate culture is taken as an excuse for the rise of the beast in the coloniser. How this trick is done is through the misuse and abuse of language, which creates misleading imagery."

Rab Quotes:
I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.

Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark.

You can't cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water.

The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough.

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.

A mind all logic is like a knife all blade. It makes the hand bleed that uses it.]

Death is not extinguishing the light; it is only putting out the lamp because the dawn has come.

Everything comes to us that belongs to us if we create the capacity to receive it.

Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf.

Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.

Stephen Spender - The Still Centre


"My words like eyes in night, stare to reach
A centre for their light: and my acts thrown
To distant places by impatient violence
Yet lock together to mould a path of stone
Out of my darkness into a lucid day.”
Stephen Spender
Source/Notes:
Darkness And Light - The Still Centre (1939)

Since we are what we are, what shall we be
But what we are?
S.S.

When you read and understand a poem, comprehending its rich and formal meanings, then you master chaos a little.

Your brain can literally be on the same wavelength as someone else’s brain


Whenever two people meet, there are really six people present. There is each man as he sees himself, each man as the other person sees him, and each man as he really is.
