Author: D'Andre Lampkin

13. "How monotonous our speaking becomes when we speak only to ourselves! And how insulting to the other beings – to foraging black bears and twisted old cypresses – that no longer sense us talking to them, but only about them, as though they were not present in our world…Small wonder that rivers and forests no longer compel our focus or our fierce devotion. For we walk about such entities only behind their backs, as though they were not participant in our lives. Yet if we no longer call out to the moon slipping between the clouds, or whisper to the spider setting the silken struts of her web, well, then the numerous powers of this world will no longer address us – and if they still try, we will not likely hear them."
Author: David Abram

"When you fear you will confirm a negative stereotype, it can become a self-fulfilling prophecy not because the stereotype is true, but because you can't stop worrying that you could become an example proving it.This self-fulfilling prophecy, being only a matter of perception, can be easily sublimated. Another study by Steele measured the math abilities of men versus women. When the questions were easy, the women and men performed the same. When they were difficult, the women's scores plummeted lower than did those of their male peers. When they ran the tests again with new participants, but this time before handing out the problems told the subjects that men and women tended to perform equally on the exam, the scores leveled out. The women performed just as well as did the men. The power of the stereotype--women are bad at math--was nullified."
Author: David McRaney

Kat believes the war would be over if leaders gave all the participants "the same grub and the same pay," as he says in a rhyme. Kropp believes the leaders of each country should fight each other in an arena to settle the war; the "wrong" people currently do the fighting."
Author: Erich Maria Remarque
18. "Don't live life as a spectator. Always examine life: Espouse new ideas, long fornew things, constantly discovering new interests, escaping from boringroutines. Engage life with enthusiasm; grasping life aggressively and squeezingfrom it every drop of excitement, satisfaction, and joy. The key to unleashing life's potential is attitude. The person who approacheslife with a child-like wonder is best prepared to defy the limitations of time, ismore "alive," more of a participant in life than the person who remains aspectator."

The kingdom of the world is centrally concerned with what people do; the kingdom of God is centrally concerned with how people are and what they can become.The kingdom of the world is characterized by judgment; the kingdom of God is characterized by outrageous, even scandalous, grace."
Author: Gregory A. Boyd

You take what does not belong to you. You do this knowingly."
Author: Khaled Hosseini

31. "False memory research was mentioned. It might be easy to implant a false memory in a younger sibling. But false memory resarchers seem to understand that it's not so easy implanting false memories in non-relatives. These researchers gather information from the subjects' family members to create a realistic, believable false memory. Then participants are informed that the source was a family member, someone who was supposedly there at the time. That should work.But even with all this help, results range from 0 to barely significant.To create this level of plausibility, a therapist would have to contact the client's family member. The therapist would then ask the relative for help in creating a plausible false memory about the client's molestation. And the relative would have to say they were there and saw it happen.However, so far, there appears to be no evidence that this has occurred."
Author: Lynn S. Crook
32. "...in microphysics the observer interferes with the experiment in a way that can't be measured and that therefore can't be eliminated. No natural laws can be formulated, saying "such-and-such will happen in every case." All the microphysicist can say is "such-and-such is, according to statistical probability, likely to happen." This naturally represents a tremendous problem for our classical physical thinking. It requires a consideration, in a scientific experiment, of the mental outlook of the participant-observer: It could this be said that scientists can no longer hope to describe any aspects or qualities of outer objects in a completely independent, "objective" manner."
Author: M.L. Von Franz
33. "In a number of workshops, I have asked people whether they have had one or more experiences that they would identify as an experience of God and, if so, to share them in small groups.

They also frequently report that they had never before been asked that question in a church setting or given an opportunity to talk about it."
Author: Marcus J. Borg

Author: Martin Luther King Jr.

Author: Muriel Barbery
37. "Once or twice a year I attended the English Romantic conferences held throughout Europe, brief gatherings perhaps not dissimilar in feeling for the participants than the feeling Jews have when they get off the plane in Israel: the relief of at last being surrounded on all sides by your own kind--the relief and the horror."
Author: Nicole Krauss

Author: Osunsakin Adewale
39. "When people say right person, wrong time, or wrong person, right time, it's usually a cop-out. They think that fate is playing with them.

Author: Rachel Cohn

I am gonna have to put on my deer hunting gear, though, to stay warm!"

It's pretty amazing, actually."
Author: Steve Albini

48. "When I did a therapist education in USA 1984, one of the course leaders – who had given personal and spiritual guidance to thousands of seekers of truth from all over the world, and who I consider to be one of the best spiritual therapists in the world – said that I was going to get enlightened, that I would "disappear into the silence". I did not really understand what he meant then, and it was totally absurd for me when other course participants congratulated me afterwards. The thought that I was going to be enlightened was totally absurd for me. For me enlightenment was something that happened to special and chosen persons like Osho, Buddha, Jesus, Lao-Tzu and Krishnamurti. I did not feel either special or chosen. I did not feel worthy of being enlightened."
Author: Swami Dhyan Giten

Author: Yusef Komunyakaa
