Be as simple as you can be , you will be astonished to see how uncomplicated and happy your life can become.

Paramahansa Yogananda

When you are educated, you’ll believe only half of what you hear. When you’re intelligent, you know which half.

Jerome Perryman

“Evil-doers again resemble a man who stirs the dust against the wind. The dust is never raised without doing him injury. Thus the wise will never be hurt, but the curse is sure to destroy the evil-doers themselves.”


When in doubt, make a fool of yourself. There is a microscopically thin line between being brilliantly creative and acting like the most gigantic idiot on earth. So what the hell, leap.

Cynthia Heimel, “Lower Manhattan Survival Tactics”

Enlightenment is ego’s ultimate disappointment.

Chögyam Trungpa

Talk sense to a fool and he calls you foolish.

Euripides (484 BC - 406 BC)

Emptiness is everywhere and it can be calculated, which gives us a great opportunity. I know how to control the universe. So tell me, why should I run for a million?

Math genius Grigori Perelman explains why he turned down $1 million prize

Theodore Roosevelt

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

True friends stab you in the front.

Oscar Wilde

Ramanna Maharshi

The Law of Persistence: Your ability to persist in the face of adversities, setbacks, and disappointments is your measure of your belief in yourself. Persistence is the iron quality of success; if you persist long enough you must eventually succeed!

Brian Tracy

Freedom is from something. What are you to be free from? Obviously, you must be free from the person you take yourself to be, for it is the idea you have of yourself that keeps you in bondage.
