Yogi Kanna Quotes

"Believing is not the same as knowing. Believing is second-hand knowledge, whereas knowing is first-hand experience. When your action comes from a level of belief, there is fear, doubt and restlessness behind such action. When your action comes from a level of knowing, there is conviction, certainty and calm behind such action."

HG Wells Quotes

"One may picture, too, the sudden shifting of the attention, the swiftly spreading coils and bellyings of that blackness advancing headlong, towering heavenward, turning the twilight to a palpable darkness, a strange and horrible antagonist of vapour striding upon its victims, men and horses near it seen dimly, running, shrieking, falling headlong, shouts of dismay, the guns suddenly abandoned, men choking and writhing on the ground, and the swift broadening-out of the opaque cone of smoke. And then night and extinction – nothing but a silent mass of impenetrable vapour hiding its dead."

Ernst Pawel Quotes

"Nothing expresses Kafkas innermost sense of self more profoundly than his lapidary definition of "writing as a form of prayer": he was a writer. Not a man who wrote, but one to whom writing was the only form of being, the only means of defying death in life."

Philippe Petit Quotes

"You must not fall. / When you lose your balance, resist for a long time before turning yourself toward the earth. Then jump. / You must not force yourself to stay steady. You must move forward."

Quotes About Rocking Babies

"Reading Aloud to My Father I chose the book haphazardfrom the shelf, but with Nabokovs firstsentence I knew it wasnt the thingto read to a dying man:The cradle rocks above an abyss, it began,and common sense tells us that our existenceis but a brief crack of lightbetween two eternities of darkness.The words disturbed both of us immediately,and I stopped. With music it was the same --Chopins Piano Concerto — he asked meto turn it off. He ceased eating, and dranklittle, while the tumors briskly appropriatedwhat was left of him.But to return to the cradle rocking. I thinkNabokov had it wrong. This is the abyss.Thats why babies howl at birth,and why the dying so often reachfor something only they can apprehend.At the end they dont want their handsto be under the covers, and if you should putyour hand on theirs in a tentative gestureof solidarity, theyll pull the hand free;and you must honor that desire,and let them pull it free." - Author: Jane Kenyon

Quotes About Asceticism

"The de-spiritualization of asceticisms is probably the event in the current intellectual history of mankind that is the most comprehensive and, because of its large scale, the hardest to perceive, yet at once the most palpable and atmospherically powerful. Its counterpart is the informalization of spirituality - accompanied by its commercialization in the corresponding subcultures. The threshold values for these two tendencies provide the intellectual landmarks for the twentieth century: the first tendency is represented by sport, which has become a metaphor for achievement as such, and the second by popular music, that devotio postmoderna which covers the lives of contemporary individuals with unpredictable flashes of inner emergency." - Author: Peter Sloterdijk

"When its finals week and youve been studying for five hours straight, you need three things to get you through the nigh.The biggest Slurpee you can find,half cherry half Coke.Pajama pants, the kind that have been washed so many times they are tissue-paper thin. And finally,dace breaks.Lots of dance breaks." - Author: Jenny Han

Quotes About Rostro

"Es lo habitual en esos lugares; se juzga excéntrico al hombre de verdad, porque las facultades no son más que centros que cuidan de una clase media sin personalidad, de esa clase media que tiene su perfecta expresión en las inmediaciones de las universidades, en esas hileras de casas de gente acomodada, con céspedes y un televisor en cada sala de estar con todo el mundo pensando lo mismo al mismo tiempo, mientras los Japhy del mundo merodean por el yermo, para escuchar la voz que clama en el desierto, para descubrir el éxtasis de las estrellas para dar con el misterioso y sombrío secreto del origen de la crapulosa civilización sin rostro ni fantasía." - Author: Jack Kerouac

Quotes About Acting Under Pressure

"Anarchists are mouthpieces of a declining stratum of society; when they work themselves into a state of righteous indignation demanding rights, justice, equal rights, they are just acting under the pressure of their own lack of culture, which has no way of grasping why they really suffer, or what they lack in life." - Author: Friedrich Nietzsche

Quotes About Pursuing Someone

"Pursuing happiness, and I did, and I still do, is not at all the same as being happy--which I think is fleeting, dependent on circumstances...If the sun is shining, stand in it---yes, yes, yes. Happy times are great, but happy times pass--they have to because time passes. The pursuit of happiness is more elusive; it is life-long, and it is not goal-centered. What you are pursuing is meaning--- a meaningful life. Theres the hap-- the fate, the draw that is yours, and it isnt fixed, but changing the course of the stream, or dealing new cards, whatever metaphor you want to use---thats going to take a lot of energy. There are times when it will go so wrong that you will barely be alive, and times when you realise that being barely alive, on your own terms, is better than living a bloated half-life on someone elses terms. The pursuit isnt all or nothing--- its all AND nothing." - Author: Jeanette Winterson
