[For A Practitioner Of Love And Compassion, An Enemy Is One Of The Most Important Teachers. Without An Enemy You Cannot Practice Tolerance, And Without Tolerance You Cannon Build A Sound Basis Of Compassion. So In Order To Practice Compassion, You Should Have An Enemy.When You Face Your Enemy Who Is Going To Hurt You, That Is The Real Time To Practice Tolerance. Therefore, An Enemy Is The Cause Of The Practice Of Tolerance; Tolerance Is The Effect Or Result Of An Enemy. So Those Are Cause And Effect. As Is Said, "Once Something Has The Relationship Of Arising From That Thing, One Cannot Consider That Thing From Which It Arises As A Harmer; Rather It Assists The Production Of The Effect.]

Quotes About Extraordinary

"When one sees what happens in the world between the religions, the different religions - killing each other and murdering each other, its disgusting and as far as I am concerned its ridiculous. So I thought I might be useful, I believe in God and I believe in religion, but believe religions should belong to you. The extraordinary thing is that the Jews believe that only the Jews can go to paradise, the Christians believe that only a Christian can go to paradise and the Muslims believe that only the Muslims can go to paradise. Now why should God, in his great justice, make somebody born that cannot go to paradise - it is absurd. Please forgive me I dont mean to say its absurd, people made it absurd." - Author: Omar Sharif

Quotes About Figurative

"But insensate Time is nothing if not cruel and heartless. It corrodes then destroys, so that the man you literally and figuratively looked up to with your chubby face, who scooped you up to cross the street and patted you on the head to laughter, will later look through you from a crooked hospital bed then blindly up at you while wearing makeup in a bargain casket. The people who now surround you generating warmth will disappear leaving only an empty chill; the body you own and the brain it houses will malfunction. And sometimes, especially in Boxing, a twenty four year old can become a man overnight." - Author: Sergio De La Pava

Quotes About Emersons

They picked violets and filled all the vases in the room of these very Miss Alans who have failed to come to Cissie Villa. Poor little ladies! So shocked and so pleased. It used to be one of Miss Catharines great stories. ‘My dear sister loves flowers, it began. They found the whole room a mass of blue — vases and jugs — and the story ends with ‘So ungentlemanly and yet so beautiful. It is all very difficult. Yes, I always connect those Florentine Emersons with violets."…" - Author: E.M. Forster
