Imagination is more inportant than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, While imaginaton embraces the intire world, And all there ever will be to know and understand.

In everyones’ heart stirs a great homesickness.
Rabbi Seymour Siegel
We are shaken by secret shudders and dark forebodings; but we know no way out, and very few persons indeed draw the conclusion that this time the issue is the long-since- forgotten soul of man.
Life is like sailing on a boat that we all know is someday going to sink.
Afoot and light-hearted I take to the open road, Healthy, free, the world before me. The long brown path before me leading wherever I choose.
The day you were born a ladder was set up to help you escape from this world.
If you bring forth what is inside of you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is inside of you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.”
The Gospel Of Thomas
I imagine that God speaks to me, saying simply, ” I keep calling to you, and you did not come.” And I answer quite naturally, ” I couldn’t until I knew there was nowhere else to go.”
Florida Scott Maxwell
The Buddhas do not tell the way; it is for you to swelter at the task.
Do men think they will be left alone on saying, ” I believe, ” and that they will not be tested ?

A little integrity is better than any career.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
If I lose mine honor,
I lose myself.
Let us be true : this is the highest maxim of art and of life,
the secret of eloquence and of virtue, and of all moral authority.
Henri Frederic Amiel
Heaven is my father, the earth my mother, and even a tiny creature such as myself fines an intimate place in their midst. In everything that moves through the universe, I see my own body, and in everything that governs the universe, my own soul. All men are my brethern, and all things my companions.

The Land was ours before we were the land’s.
Genius is the power of lighting one’s own fire.
The world is my county , all mankind are my brethren , and to do good is my religion.
Liberty , when it begins to take root , is a plant of rapid growth.
Yes! let the proud despise, the rich deride, These humble joys, to Competence allied:
To me, they bloom, all fragrant to my heart, Nor ask the pomp of wealth, nor gloss of art.
Go forth, under the open sky, and list to Nature’s teachings.
William Cullen Bryant
Whoso would be a man, must be a nonconformist.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Art lives upon discussion, upon experiment, upon curiosity, upon variety of attempt, upon exchange of views and the comparison of standpoints.

Happy the man and happy he alone,
He who secure within can say:
Tomorrow doesn’t matter, for I have lived today.
In the midst of winter, I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.
Many persons have a wrong idea about what constitutes true happiness. Its is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.
Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow.
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
It is never to late to be what you might have been.
Though a man be wise, it is no shame for him to live and learn.

What we do does not define who we are.
What defines us is how well we rise after falling.
To put the world in order we must first put the nation in order.
To put the nation in order we must first put the family in order.To put the family in order we must first cultivate our personal life.And to cultivate our personal life, we must set our hearts right.

There are risks and costs to a program of action,
but they are far less than the long range risks and costs of comfortable inaction.
John F. Kennedy
Always be a first-rate version of yourself,
instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.
If I try to be like him,
who will be like me.
Don’t surrender your individuality, which is your greatest agent of power, to the customs and conventionalities that have got their life from the great mass. Do you want to be a power in the world? Then be yourself.
Ralph Waldo Trine

To regret one’s own experiences is to arrest one’s own development. To deny one’s own experiences is to put a lie into the lips of one’s own life. It is no less a denial of the soul.
Imagination is more important than knowledge.
The heights by great men reached and kept
Were not attained by sudden flight,
But they, while their companions slept,
Were toiling upward in the night.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
