Nivedita Quotes

"If the many and the One be indeed the same Reality, then it is not all modes of worship alone, but equally all modes of work, all modes of struggle, all modes of creation, which are paths of realization. No distinction, henceforth, between sacred and secular. To labour is to pray. To conquer is to renounce. Life is itself religion. To have and to hold is as stern a trust as to quit and to avoid."

"I have a lot of good people in my actual life, but I will say that its a strange time that we live in - its easy to make friends and to make connections through social media, and if youre a good-hearted person, sometimes you can just assume people are who they say they are, and that isnt always the case, which is why Catfish is successful."

William Wharton Quotes

"It occurs to me one evening as Im feeding the birds that all I did was put two birds in the aviary, some food and water and nothing else and now there are six of them. I know this is perfectly natural, its one of the things life is all about, but to have it happen in my bedroom, under my own eyes, is magic."

Paolo Coehlo Quotes

Quotes About Your Brother Leaving For College

"[M]an has been accustomed, ever since he was a boy, to having a dozen incompatible philosophies dancing about together inside his head. He doesnt think of doctrines as primarily "true" or "false," but as "academic" or "practical," "outworn" or "contemporary," "conventional" or "ruthless." Jargon, not argument, is your best ally in keeping him from the Church. Dont waste time trying to make him think that materialism is true! Make him think it is strong or stark or courageous—that it is the philosophy of the future. Thats the sort of thing he cares about." - Author: C.S. Lewis
