[Never Trust The Occultist Who Tells You That He Is The Head Of A Tradition, Because If He Were, In The First Place, He Would Not Tell The Fact To The Uninitiated, And In The Second Place He Would In All Probability Be Living In Great Seclusion And Inaccessible To All But His Immediate Subordinates. If A Man Is A Great Artist He Does Not Need To Inform Us Of The Fact; We Shall Know Him By His Pictures That Are Hung In The Galleries Of The Nation, And We Shall, Moreover, Find That He Guards Himself From Casual Acquaintances Because Of The Inroads On His Time To Which His Fame Renders Him Liable. The More Eminent A Person, The Harder He Is To Approach, Not Out Of Any Spirit Of Pride And Exclusiveness, But Because So Many People Want To See Him That Discrimination Has To Be Used In Admitting Them.]

Mohd Yusof Hj Othman Quotes

"Faktor utama dalam penjanaan pemikirannya (umat Islam) bukan semata-mata hal-hal yang berhubung dengan mantik saja. Sebaliknya ia juga merupakan usaha untuk mencari kebenaran dan menegakkan keadilan dengan penuh adab dan akhlak yang mulia kerana memenuhi tuntutan Islam itu sendiri. Pemikiran mantik dan rasional bukanlah matlamat terakhir, tetapi hanyalah wahana untuk mencapai matlamat terakhir, yakni mencari kebenaran dan menegakkan keadilan tanpa mengabaikan aspek keinsanan manusia."

Quotes About Operate

"The root of all inauthentic manifestations of being-with-others is the attitude of self-concern. It is in this state of mind that, either consciously or unconsciously, we reduce the central aim of all value and meaning to the accomplishment of the welfare of ourselves alone. This attitude can operate very deviously even in the person who outwardly appears to be thoroughly altruistic. Despite all magnanimous commitments and generous deeds, it silently measures the ultimate worth of these things in terms of the personal satisfaction that results from them. It is the root of inauthentic being-with because it is primarily responsible in preventing our essential being-with-others from full and genuine expression." - Author: Stephen Batchelor

Quotes About Systems Theory

"Justice is the first virtue of social institutions, as truth is of systems of thought. A theory however elegant and economical must be rejected or revised if it is untrue; likewise laws and institutions no matter how efficient and well-arranged must be reformed or abolished if they are unjust. Each person possesses an inviolability founded on justice that even the welfare of society as a whole cannot override. For this reason justice denies that the loss of freedom for some is made right by a greater good shared by others. It does not allow that the sacrifices imposed on a few are outweighed by the larger sum of advantages enjoyed by many. Therefore in a just society the liberties of equal citizenship are taken as settled; the rights secured by justice are not subject to political bargaining or to the calculus of social interests." - Author: John Rawls

Quotes About The Divine Proportion

"As it is with spiritual discoveries and affections given at first conversion, so it is in all subsequent illuminations and affections of that kind; they are all transforming. There is a like divine power and energy in them as in the first discoveries; they still reach the bottom of the heart, and affect and alter the very nature of the soul, in proportion to the degree in which they are given. And a transformation of nature is continued and carried on by them to the end of life, until it is brought to perfection in glory." - Author: Jonathan Edwards
