Nelson Mandela

As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Nelson Mandela

How can I be expected to believe that this same racial discrimination which has been the cause of so much injustice and suffering right through the years, should now operate here to give me a fair and open trial?....consider myself neither morally nor legally obliged to obey laws made by a Parliament in which I am not represented. That the will of the people is the basis of the authority of government, is a principle universally acknowledged as sacred throughout the civilized world.

Nelson Mandela

Education is the great engine of personal development. It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that a son of a mineworker can become the head of the mine, that a child of farm workers can become the president...

Nelson Mandela

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Mother Teresa

We can cure physical diesases with medicine, but the only cure for loneliness, despair, and hopelessness is love. There are many in the world who are dying for a piece of bread, but there are many more dying for a little love

If you judge people, you have no time to love them.

Marilyn Monroe

People had a habit of looking at me as if I were some kind of mirror instead of a person. They didn't see me, they saw their own lewd thoughts, then they white-masked themselves by calling me the lewd one.

Marilyn Monroe

If you can make a girl laugh - you can make her do anything.

Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe

Well behaved women rarely make history.

Marilyn Monroe

I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go. Things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right. You believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

Marilyn Monroe

A wise girl kisses but doesn't love, listens but doesnt believe, and leaves before she is left.

John Mayer

I'm singing what I want to sing based on the emotion of what that day feels like. That's what comes out of my mouth and guitar. That impacts people. They know anything can happen.

John Mayer

It is too easy to watch music coming out of people's mouths lately and you're not quite sure if it was written with the best of intentions.

John Mayer

Hopefully people can see my music is tethered to my brain.

John Mayer

People want to see musicians sing things that come from their own mind and own heart in real time, responding to the moment for them.

John Mayer

I feel my shows are like a late-night talk show that we settle down and do every night

John Mayer

Everybody is just a stranger, but that's the danger in going my own way.

John Mayer

I need some kind of emotional stake in it to write my lyrics, assuming that place. It might just be an emotion I understand but am not currently experiencing necessarily.

John Mayer

High School is like a spork: it's a crappy spoon and a crappy fork, so in the end it's just plain useless.

John Mayer

I think people right now, the age they are, being 21 and 22, really do want to find a group of bands they can take with them through life.

John Mayer

Sometimes I wish that I was the weather, you'd bring me up in conversation forever. And when it rained, I'd be the talk of the day.

John Mayer

I feel strikingly domestic. We're in our own world with two busses and trucks.

John Mayer

Even if you think the flame has died, there's at least one lyric that'll hit that last hot spot, and then you'll find yourself as f***ed as you were the day you lied and said you never wanted to see her again,

John Mayer

Never, ever underestimate the power of 'Id Like that.

John Mayer

I can't wait to figure out what wrong with me, so I can say this is the way that I used to be.

John Mayer

Life is like a box of crayons. Most people are the 8-color boxes, but what you're really looking for are the 64-color boxes with the sharpeners on the back. I fancy myself to be a 64-color box, though I've got a few missing. It's ok though, because I've got some more vibrant colors like periwinkle at my disposal. I have a bit of a problem though in that I can only meet the 8-color boxes. Does anyone else have that problem? I mean there are so many different colors of life, of feeling, of articulation.. so when I meet someone who's an 8-color type.. I'm like, hey girl, magenta! and she's like, oh, you mean purple! and she goes off on her purple thing, and I'm like, no - I want magenta!

John Lennon

If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there'd be peace.

John Lennon

All you need is love.

Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink. I needn't argue with that; I'm right and I will be proved right. We're more popular than Jesus now; I don't know which will go first - rock and roll or Christianity.

John Lennon

Love is a promise, love is a souvenir, once given never forgotten, never let it disappear.

Bill McIntire

Banning gun shows to reduce violent crime will work about as well as banning auto shows to reduce drunken driving.

James Weldon Johnson

Labor is the fabled magician's wand, the philosophers stone, and the cap of good fortune.

Mack R. Douglas

When a man has done his best, has given his all, and in the process supplied the needs of his family and his society, that man has made a habit of succeeding.

Kareem Abdul-Jabar

I've had enough success for two lifetimes, My success is talent put together with hard work and luck.

Albert Einstein

Try not to become a man of success but rather to become a man of value

Sophocles

Success, remember is the reward of toil.

Benjamin Nnamdi Azikiwe

Pray that success will not come any faster than you are able to endure it.

Earl Nightingale

We must be the epitome-the embodiment-of success. We must radiate success before it will come to us. We must first become mentally, from an attitude standpoint, the people we wish to become.

Edward William Bok

A young person, to achieve, must first get out of his mind any notion either of the ease or rapidity of success. Nothing ever just happens in this world.

David J. Schwartz

Here is the basic rule for winning success. Let's mark it in the mind and remember it. The rule is: Success depends on the support of other people. The only hurdle between you and what you want to be in is the support of other people.

John Ruskin

Success by the laws of competition signifies a victory over others by obtaining the direction and profits of their work. This is the real source of all great riches.

Greg Evans

Whenever you see a successful person you only see the public glories, never the private sacrifices to reach them.

Michael Jordan

I've missed over 9,000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times I've been trusted to take the game-winning shot . . . and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.

Greg Evans

I do not have superior intelligence or faultless looks. I do not captivate a room or run a mile under six minutes. I only succeeded because I was still working after everyone else went to sleep.

Charles Erwin Wilson

For years I thought what was good for our country was good for General Motors and vice versa. The difference did not exist. Our company is too big. It goes with the welfare of the country.

Walter Legge

Democracy is fatal for the arts; it leads only to chaos or the achievement of new and lower common denominators of quality.

John Henry Patterson

Before you try to convince anyone else, be sure you are convinced, and if you cannot convince yourself, drop the subject.

George Bernard Shaw

Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got a hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.

Jim Rohn

We must all suffer from one of two pains: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The difference is discipline weighs ounces while regret weighs tons.

Carl Stoynoff

 Fate, is an excuse for why we end up where we do! Our 'Actions' predetermine our Destiny, our 'Reactions' seal that fate!

Sorin Cerin

Thus we live, with every passing moment, our own Death! If our Life were a reflection in exactly what we are, this would mean that we mirror and we refer to ourselves, even though we refer to what we are not, coming to live in a parallel world which should show exactly like us so that it is not alien to us, thing that is impossible since there is God. God alienates us from ourselves? Since we are Gods shadow, how can we be alien to the God that creates this shadow? Are our own shadows aliens to us too?

Greg Evans

Exhaustion cripples me, sleep has become a nostalgia, the studying, focus, awe and frustration is perpetual, day morphs to night and vice versa, I dream of law, the rules of William Strunk Jr., Calill and the smoke ball, participial phrase, the active voice, Erin, colloquialisms, Boone v. Coe, my nerve endings seem to be losing sensation yet my mind is a raging fire. I love it all. I love my life.

Jack Buck

As we grow older together, As we continue to change with age, There is one thing that will never change. . . I will always keep falling in love with you.

Sorin Cerin

Could we talk about a world without opposites? We certainly cant, just as well as we couldnt talk about a world without paradoxes, precisely because we are all of this. If we were not a paradox, than our world either wouldnt be paradoxical.

Sorin Cerin

 How would this world be if there was not God? The answer is simple: it would become itself God

Sorin Cerin

Mans life is knowledge and thats all. If the Man didnt knew life he didnt exist.

Sorin Cerin

Why are we a shadow and not a great tree? Why when we think we are spring, reality shows us we are a late autumn? Because of the fact that God is the Unique Accidental one, is the Primary Event, and everything that follows him is an Intended Occurrence, so an image of the Unique Accidental Occurrence. This image is destiny. If we were not but a mere image, this would mean that God is not the Unique Accidental one, but Intended, which cannot be because this would mean that God too is created by another Primary Event before him, thing that cannot be true. But still, do we know what truth is? We wouldnt be Gods image only if there was not God. 

Greg Evans

Tragedy, sadness, loneliness and despair taught me that life is really a beautiful thing; if it wasn't I wouldn't be able to recognize that anything was wrong

The Death's Field is the mirror which allows us the knowledge of the world we living in.

Walt Disney

Somehow I can't believe that there are any heights that can't be scaled by a man who knows the secrets of making dreams come true. This special secret, it seems to me, can be summarized in four C s. They are curiosity, confidence, courage, and constancy, and the greatest of all is confidence. When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way, implicitly and unquestionable.

Chinese Prover

The journey is the reward.

Vincent Van Gogh

Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.

Samuel Johnson

Life affords no higher pleasure than that of surmounting difficulties, passing from one step of success to another, forming new wishes and seeing them gratified.

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

For a man to achieve all that is demanded of him he must regard himself as greater than he is.

If Columbus had turned back, no one would have blamed him. Of course, no one would have remembered him either.

Confucius

Do not be desirous of having things done quickly. Do not look at small advantages. Desire to have things done quickly prevents their being done thoroughly. Looking at small advantages prevents great affairs from being accomplished.

Ronaldo(Ronaldinho) Assis Moreira

No matter who you are it's the simple things in life that lead you to believe that you can achieve anything

Aristotle

For what is the best choice, for each individual is the highest it is possible for him to achieve.

Johann Friedrich Von Schiller

As noble Art has survived noble nature, so too she marches ahead of it, fashioning and awakening by her inspiration. Before Truth sends her triumphant light into the depths of the heart, imagination catches its rays, and the peaks of humanity will be glowing when humid night still lingers in the valleys.

Vincent Van Gogh

It is not the language of painters but the language of nature which one should listen to the feeling for the things themselves, for reality, is more important than the feeling for pictures.

A. Alvarez

Twentieth-century art may start with nothing, but it flourishes by virtue of its belief in itself, in the possibility of control over what seems essentially uncontrollable, in the coherence of the inchoate, and in its ability to create its own values.

Susan Sontag

Much of modern art is devoted to lowering the threshold of what is terrible. By getting us used to what, formerly, we could not bear to see or hear, because it was too shocking, painful, or embarrassing, art changes morals.

Rainer Maria Rilke

Surely all art is the result of one's having been in danger, of having gone through an experience all the way to the end, where no one can go any further.

Vincent Van Gogh

I can't work without a model. I won't say I turn my back on nature ruthlessly in order to turn a study into a picture, arranging the colors, enlarging and simplifying; but in the matter of form I am too afraid of departing from the possible and the true.

Guillaume Apollinaire

Without poets, without artists, men would soon weary of nature's monotony. The sublime idea men have of the universe would collapse with dizzying speed. The order which we find in nature, and which is only an effect of art, would at once vanish. Everything would break up in chaos. There would be no seasons, no civilization, no thought, no humanity; even life would give way, and the impotent void would reign everywhere.

Henry James

It is art that makes life, makes interest, makes importance and I know of no substitute whatever for the force and beauty of its process.

"Tuzhe pata hai tune kiska catch chhoda hai?" Wasim Akram to Abdul Razzaq when the latter dropped Sachin's catch.





@Brian Charles Lara again

Sachin is a genius. I'm a mere mortal.




Mark Taylor


"We did not lose to a team called India ...we lost to a man called Sachin" -
Mark Taylor, during the test match in Chennai (1997)

"The more I see of him the more confused I'm getting to which is his best knock."

Quoting Shahrukh from an interview

Que: Who do you think as most important celebrity ?
Shahrukh: There was a big party where stars from bollywood and cricket were invited. Suddenly, there was a big noise, all wanted to see approaching Amitabh Bachhan.
Then Sachin entered the hall and Amitabh was leading the queue to get a grab of the GENIUS!!






@Navjot Singh Sidhu

@Waqar Younis
He can play that leg glance with a walking stick also






A banner once said-' I WILL SEE GOD WHEN I DIE BUT TILL THEN I WILL SEE SACHIN ' that quiet defines Sachin-The greatest.




Sachin Tendulkar has often reminded me of a veteran army colonel who has many medals on his chest to show how he has conquered bowlers all over the world -- Allan Donald





And i remember reading in one of Allan Donald's interview. This interview was in Cricket Talk and 7-8 yrs ago.
I was bowling to Sachin and he hit me for two fours in a row. One from
point and the other in between point and gully. That was the last two balls of the over and the
over after that we (SA) took a wicket and during the group meeting i told Jonty (Rhodes) to
be alert and I know a way to pin Sachin. And i delivered the first ball of my next over
and it was a fuller length delevery outside offstump. And i shouted catch. To my
astonishment the ball was hit to the cover boundary. Such was the brilliance of Sachin. His
reflex time is the best I have ever seen. Its like 1/20th of a sec. To get his wicket better not
prepare. Atleast u wont regret if he hits you for boundaries.



Peter Rebouck - Aussie Journalist
On a train from Shimla to Delhi , there was a halt in one of the stations.
The train stopped by for few minutes as usual.
Sachin was nearing century, batting on 98. The passengers, railway
officials, everyone on the train waited for Sachin to complete the century.
This Genius can stop time in India !!




NKP Salve, former Union Minister
This was when he was accused of ball tempering

"Sachin cannot cheat. He is to cricket what (Mahatma) Gandhiji was to politics. It's clear discrimination."





Andy Flower:

There are 2 kind of batsmen in the world. One Sachin Tendulkar. Two all the others.

BBC on Sachin

Beneath the helmet, under that unruly curly hair, inside the cranium, there
is something we don't know, something beyond scientific measure. Something
that allows him to soar, to roam a territory of sport that, forget us, even
those who are gifted enough to play alongside him cannot even fathom. When
he goes out to bat, people switch on their TV sets and switch off their
lives "

Sachin

"To Sachin, the man we all want to be"
- What Andrew Symonds wrote on an aussie t-shirt he autographed specially for Sachin.

Muste, who during the Vietnam War stood in front of the White House night after night with a candle, one rainy night asked,Mr. Muste, do you really think you are going to change the policies of this country by standing out here alone at night with a candle? Muste replied, Oh, I don't do it to change the country, I do it so the country won't change me.

General Adalphos

It seemed that each time we would become proficient at a given task there would be a change made for no apparent reason. It sometimes appeared that changes were made simply because sufficient time had elapsed since the last change. And then our efforts would begin again from the beginning.

American proverb

 It doesn't work to leap a twenty-foot chasm in two ten-foot jumps.

Mary Antin

We are not born all at once, but by bits. The body first, and the spirit later; and the birth and growth of the spirit, in those who are attentive to their own inner life, are slow and exceedingly painful. Our mothers are racked with the pains of our physical birth; we ourselves suffer the longer pains of our spiritual growth.

Thomas Carlyle

Today is not yesterday: we ourselves change; how can our works and thoughts, if they are always to be the fittest, continue always the same? Change, indeed is painful; yet ever needful; and if memory have its force and worth, so also has hope.

They say loving you gives pains and full of sacrifices But I'll rather take pains and lots of sacrifices than not to be love by you.

William Shakespeare

Some men there are love not a gaping pig, some that are mad if they behold a cat, and others when the bagpipe sings I the nose cannot contain their urine.

William Shakespeare

This is the excellent foppery of the world: that when we are sick in fortune -- often the surfeits of our own behavior -- we make guilty of our disasters the sun, the moon, and stars, as if we were villains on necessity, fools by heavenly compulsion, knaves, thieves, and treachers by spherical predominance, drunkards, liars, and adulterers by an enforced obedience of planetary influence. An admirable evasion of whoremaster man, to lay his goatish disposition on the charge of a star!

Violet Trefusis

You are my lover and I am your mistress and kingdoms and empires and governments have tottered and succumbed before now to that mighty combination

Anita Brookner

A man can go from being a lover to being a stranger in three moves flat but a woman under the guise of friendship will engage in acts of duplicity which come to light very much later. There are different species of self-justification.

Henry Fielding

A lover, when he is admitted to cards, ought to be solemnly silent, and observe the motions of his mistress. He must laugh when she laughs, sigh when she sighs. In short, he should be the shadow of her mind. A lady, in the presence of her lover, should never want a looking-glass; as a beau, in the presence of his looking-glass, never wants a mistress.

Miguel De Cervantes

One who has not only the four S's, which are required in every good lover, but even the whole alphabet; as for example... Agreeable, Bountiful, Constant, Dutiful, Easy, Faithful, Gallant, Honorable, Ingenious, Kind, Loyal, Mild, Noble, Officious, Prudent, Quiet, Rich, Secret, True, Valiant, Wise; the X indeed, is too harsh a letter to agree with him, but he is Young and Zealous.

Henri Frederic Amiel

In every loving woman there is a priestess of the past -- a pious guardian of some affection, of which the object has disappeared.

Marcus Valerius Martial

I would not miss your face, your neck, your hands, your limbs, your bosom and certain other of your charms. Indeed, not to become boring by naming them all, I could do without you, Chloe, altogether.

Friends quotes.

“I'd like to be the sort of friend that you have been to me, I'd like to be the help that you've been always glad to be; I'd like to mean as much to you each minute of the day, as you have meant old friend of mine, to me along the way.”

Friends quotes

“Even though we've changed and we're all finding our own place in the world, we all know that when the tears fall or the smile spreads across our face, we'll come to each other because no matter where this crazy world takes us, nothing will ever change so much to the point where we're not all still friends.”

Friends quotes

“A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future, and accepts you just the way you are.”

Man who stand on hill with mouth open will wait long time for roast duck to drop in.Golden Thought

Aristotle

Men acquire a particular quality by constantly acting a particular way. We become just by performing just actions, temperate by performing temperate actions, brave by performing brave actions.

Albert Einstein quotes

“I want to know how God created this world. I am not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know His thoughts; the rest are details.”

C.S. Lewis quotes

“God, who foresaw your tribulation, has specially armed you to go through it, not without pain but without stain”

C.S. Lewis quotes

“God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks to us in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: It is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world”

Stanley Lindquist quotes

“God allows us to experience the low points of life in order to teach us lessons we could not learn in any other way. The way we learn those lessons is not to deny the feelings but to find the meanings underlying them.”

God quotes

“I asked God for strength that I might achieve. I was made weak that I might learn humbly to obey. I asked for health that I might do greater things. I was given infirmity that I might do better things. I asked for riches that I might be happy. I was given poverty that I might be wise. I asked for power that I might have the praise of men. I was given weakness that I might feel the need of God. I asked for all things that I might enjoy life. I was given life that I might enjoy all things. I got nothing that I asked for, but everything I hoped for. Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered. I am, among all men, most richly blessed.”

God quotes

“When God gave you to me he never said that you were mine, that I could keep you always--only borrowed for a time. Now, He's called you home, I'm sad and I shed tears. Yet, I'm glad He loaned you to me and we had these many years.”

Mother Teresa quotes

“We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence... We need silence to be able to touch souls.”

Maryanne Williamson quotes

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

David Harkins quote

“You can shed tears that she is gone,
or you can smile because she has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that she'll come back,
or you can open your eyes and see all she's left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see her,
or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember her only that she is gone,
or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind,
be empty and turn your back.
Or you can do what she'd want:
smile, open your eyes, love and go on.”

Valentine's Day quotes.

“I don't pretend to know what love is for everyone, but I can tell you what it is for me; love is knowing all about someone, and still wanting to be with them more than any other person, love is trusting them enough to tell them everything about yourself, including the things you might be ashamed of, love is feeling comfortable and safe with someone, but still getting weak knees when they walk into a room and smile at you.”

Judy Garland quotes

“For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.”

William Somerset Maugham quotes

“The love that lasts the longest is the love that is never returned.”

Relationships quotes.

“Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep... wait for the boy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you're just as pretty without makeup on. One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky his is to have you.... The one who turns to his friends and says, 'that's her.'”

Morrie Schwartz quotes

“The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.”

William Shakespeare quote

“The love of heaven makes one heavenly.”William Shakespeare quote

William Shakespeare quote

“Listen to many, speak to a few.”William Shakespeare quote

Albert Schweitzer (1875 - 1965)

Every patient carries her or his own doctor inside.

Samuel Johnson (1709 - 1784)

If a man does not make new acquaintances as he advances through life, he will soon find himself alone. A man should keep his friendships in constant repair.

Margery Allingham

When the habitually even-tempered suddenly fly into a passion, that explosion is apt to be more impressive than the outburst of the most violent amongst us.

Mahatma Gandhi (1869 - 1948)

In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in a clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness. Our life is a long and arduous quest after Truth.

Kurt Vonnegut

Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion. I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do afterward.

Joan Rivers

A man can sleep around, no questions asked, but if a woman makes nineteen or twenty mistakes she's a tramp.

Sir Winston Churchill

Personally I'm always ready to learn, although I do not always like being taught.

William J. H. Boetcker

That you may retain your self-respect, it is better to displease the people by doing what you know is right, than to temporarily please them by doing what you know is wrong.

Doris Egan

You talk to God, you're religious. God talks to you, you're psychotic.

Malcolm Forbes

Ability will never catch up with the demand for it.

James Thurber

All human beings should try to learn before they die what they are running from, and to, and why.

H. G. Wells

Human history becomes more and more a race between education and catastrophe.

Henrik Ibsen

"Money may be the husk of many things but not the kernel. It brings you food but not appetite; medicine, but not health; acquaintances, but not friends; servants, but not loyalty; days of joy, but not peace and happiness."

Lao Tzu

"Knowing others is wisdom, Knowing the self is enlightenment."

George Bernard Shaw

"Except during the nine months before he draws his first breath, no man manages his affairs as well as a tree does."

Rumi

Marie Louise von Franz

"All outer events in life are in a way only similes; they are only parables of an inner process, synchronistic symbolisations. You have to look at them from that angle to understand and integrated them, and that would be spiritualizing the physical. "Great Thoughts

Oscar Wilde, De Profundis

"The final mystery is oneself. When one has weighed the sun in a balance, and measured the steps of the moon, and mapped out the seven heavens star by star, there still remains oneself. Who can calculate the orbit of his own soul?"Oscar Wilde

Desmond Tutu

"There is no situation that is not transfigurable,
there is no situation that has no hope."

Salmon Rushdie

"Honesty is the best policy in life, but it is essential in art."

Terrence MacKenna

"We are going to discover the plasticity, the mutability, the eternal nature of the mind and, I believe, release it from the monkey. My vision of the final human future is an effort to exteriorize the soul and internalize the body, so that the exterior soul will exist as a superconducting lens of translinguistic matter generated out of the body of each of us at a critical juncture of our psychedelic bar mitzvah."

Werner Heisenberg

The Crossroads of Culture
"It is probably true quite generally that in the history of human thinking the most fruitful developments frequently take place at those points where two different lines of thought meet. These lines may have their roots in quite different parts of human culture, in different times or different cultural environments or different religious traditions: hence if they actually meet, that is, if they are at least so much related to each other that a real interaction can take place, then one may hope that new and interesting developments may follow."

Salmon Rushdie in The Ground Beneath Her Feet.

"Five mysteries hold the keys to the unseen: the act of love, and the birth of a baby, and the contemplation of great art, and being in the presence of death or disaster, and hearing the human voice lifted in song. These are the occasions when the bolts of the universe fly open and we are given a glimpse of what is hidden; an eff of the ineffable. Glory bursts upon us in such hours: the dark glory of earthquakes, the slippery wonder of new life, the radiance of...singing."

Jeremy Narby

"DNA is a master of transformation, just like mythical serpents. The cell-based life DNA informs made the air we breathe, the landscape we see, and the mind-boggling diversity of living beings of which we are part. In 4 billion years, it has multiplied itself into an incalculable number of species, while remaining exactly the same."
Jeremy Narby

Jeff Greenwald

"Buddha did not suffer from fear of success. He was one of those rare characters, like Joan of Arc or Lawrence of Arabia or Pablo Picasso, who know beyond a shadow of a doubt that their lives hold a particular destiny. For people like this, life is just a matter of waiting, patiently, for the appropriate moment to come before stepping, in sandals or boxer shorts, into the mythos."
Pawan Goyal

Meister Eckhart, from "The Sermons" in Meister Eckhart.

It is in the stillness, in the silence, that the word of God is to be heard. There is no better avenue of approach to this Word than through stillness, through silence. It is to be heard there as it is - in that unself-consciousness, for when one is aware of nothing, that word is imparted to him and clearly revealed.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

"Life's most persistent question is: What are you doing for others?"

Alfred Jarry

"God is the shortest distance from zero to infinity."

The Dalai Lama

"Understand that a self-centered attitude is the source of all suffering, and concern for others is the source of all happiness and goodness."

Stephen Vincent Benet Thought

"Our earth is but a small star in a great universe. Yet of it we can make, if we choose, a planet unvexxed by war, untroubled by hunger or fear, undivided by senseless distinctions of race, color or theory."

Ralph Marston

Have you noticed how beautiful the world is today? Have you seen some of the fresh, new opportunities that are coming to life?
Have you remembered today what a unique and wonderful blessing it is to be alive? Can you feel the richness that lives in this very moment?

Do you understand how truly fortunate you are to be you? Can you see the magnificent possibilities that are close enough to touch?

Do you realize the immense value that your thoughts and actions are able to create? Do you feel the power of your own special purpose?

This is not just any day. It is the day that you now have to work with, and a day in which you can accomplish so very much.

Open yourself to the best possibilities. This day is now yours to fulfill.

"Albert Einstein"

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution."

Buckminster Fuller Thought

"Whether humanity is to continue and prosper on spaceship Earth depends entirely on the integrity of the human individuals and not on the political and economic systems. The cosmic question has been asked, are humans a worthwhile invention?"

Great Man Theory

Leaders are born and not made.

Great leaders will arise when there is a great need.


Early research on leadership was based on the the study of people who were already great leaders. These people were often from the aristocracy, as few from lower classes had the opportunity to lead. This contributed to the notion that leadership had something to do with breeding.
The idea of the Great Man also strayed into the mythic domain, with notions that in times of need, a Great Man would arise, almost by magic. This was easy to verify, by pointing to people such as Eisenhower and Churchill, let alone those further back along the timeline, even to Jesus, Moses, Mohammed and the Buddah.

What Leaders Can Do To Motivate Their Followers

It could be argued that the ability to motivate is one of the most important qualities a great leader should have. Indeed, if the members of a group are not motivated by their leader, the success of the group will be unlikely.
The challenge of the leader is to create an environment where their followers can be motivated to succeed. Motivation is a simple concept that many organizations fail to use. They don't reward or recognize the success of their members, or they fail to properly communicate. If you want to motivate those that follow you, you will first want to avoid any behaviors that will demotivate them.

A number of polls taken by employees have shown that a large percentage of them aren't happy with their work environment because they either don't have the tools they need, or they have a hard time communicating with their supervisors. These polls also demonstrated that many employees don't even know what their superiors want from them. Is it any wander that most businesses fail within the first five years? Even though money is one reason, a failure to motive employees is likely another. The costs involved with not motivating your employees is heavy.

Statistics show that employees that described themselves as "disengaged from their jobs" cost their employers nearly $300 billion dollars in a single year. While these statistics were taken from a number of companies, it shows the high price that is paid when employees aren't motivated. This is money that could be spent in areas such as marketing, research and development, and company equipment and tools. Employees who are disengaged from their jobs will likely miss more days from work than employees who are motivated. As you can see, motivating your employees is crucial.

The first thing you will want to do is limit the number of rules you have. In fact, a leader should only set rules that are absolutely necessary for the function of their organizations. Once these rules are established, everyone who is under you should be familiar with them. The rules should be published, and should be located in a place where they are easy to see. Make sure the rules are equally applied to managers. They should follow the same guidelines as those beneath them, and should never be exempt. When someone fails to follow the rules, you will want to make sure you take the correct action.

Once you have made a list of rules, you will want to sit down with everyone to make sure they are clearly understood. You should also get the thoughts of those beneath you. Do not make rules that are set in stone at this stage. You will want to get feedback to make sure the rules are reasonable. If you decide to make changes to any rule, talk to your employees about it before you set the rule in stone. Everyone should know "why" the guidelines are being changed. Many leaders decide to change rules without letting their members know why the rules are being changed, and this can be a source of frustration.

If you set up rules in the right way, many of your followers will be happy to follow them. But the rules must be reasonable. Setting up rules that are unreasonable will send a bad message to those that follow you, and they will be difficult to motivate. It is also important for your followers to understand "exactly" what is expected of them. Doing this requires the leader to practice good communication skills. You should be able to explain to anyone exactly what needs to be done without making them feel unintelligent. In addition to this, you will want to make sure your group behaves like a group.


Many departments in large companies are created in a way that disconnects employees from each other. While it is important for them to be able to concentrate, employees must all feel like they are part of a group. Supervisors will want to have frequent meetings and gatherings away from the cubicles were employees can communicate with each other and have group discussions. In a situation like this, the group will work together to form a well oiled machine, a machine that will perform quite well.
