Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.



 ~ Albert Einstein ~

The impression forces itself upon one that men measure by false standards, that everyone seeks power, success, riches for himself, and admires others who attain them, while undervaluing the truly precious thing in life.

 ~ Sigmund Freud ~

(1856-1939, Austrian Physician - Founder of Psychoanalysis) 

When we get too caught up in the busyness of the world we lose connection with one another- and ourselves.

~ Jack Kornfield ~

True thoughts have duration in themselves. If the thoughts endure, the seed is enduring; if the seed endures, the energy endures; if the energy endures, then will the spirit endure. The spirit is thought; thought is the heart; the heart is the fire; the fire is the Elixir.

 ~Lu Yen~

(fl. 800 A.D.) 

Often we allow ourselves to be upset by small things we should despise and forget. We lose many irreplaceable hours brooding over grievances that, in a year's time, will be forgotten by us and by everybody. No, let us devote our life to worthwhile actions and feelings, to great thoughts, real affections and enduring undertakings.

 ~ Andre Maurois ~

To measure you by your smallest deed is to reckon the ocean by the frailty of its foam. To judge you by your failures is to cast blame upon the seasons for their inconsistencies.

 ~ Kahlil Gibran ~ 

Better indeed is knowledge than mechanical practice. Better than knowledge is meditation. But better still is surrender of attachment to results, because there follows immediate peace.

 ~ Bhagavad Gita ~

(c. BC 400, Sanskrit Poem Incorporated Into the Mahabharata) 

Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.

(c. B.C. 1375)  

You don't always get what you ask for, but you never get what you don't ask for... unless it's contagious!

  ~ Franklyn Broude ~

I will not be concerned at other men's not knowing me; I will be concerned at my own want of ability.
