That philosopher who orders us to conceal ourselves and to care for no one but ourselves and who wishes us to remain unknown to others, wants us even less to be held in honour and glory by them.

of faith in your spirit, in your own potential. Faith is the basis of meditation. Not of faith in something outside you

— Martine Batchelor

Or, again, in such words as I am in the east and the west, I am above and below, I am this entire world.

— Erwin Schrodinger

Like a beautiful flower, full of colour, but without scent, are wise words when spoken, but fruitless these words are when not carried out by the speaker.
