"Government succeeds by failing."

Gerald Schroeder Quotes

"Now if there is anything in this universe for which we do not have an "inkling," it is the ultimate goal of the Creator. Erroneous notions regarding this goal often stem from the misconception that all existence exists for man alone. The foible in this perception of the universe is the failure to realize that existence itself is good. The Five Books of Moses are bracketed by explicit statements of the worth of being. At the start we are told: "And God saw all that was made and behold it was very good" (Gen. 1:31)"

Quotes About Dover

"Poi non è che la vita vada come tu te la immagini. Fa la sua strada. E tu la tua. E non sono la stessa strada. Così, io non è che volevo essere felice, questo no. Volevo salvarmi, ecco: salvarmi. Ma ho capito tardi da che parte bisognava andare: dalla parte dei desideri. Uno si aspetta che siano altre cose a salvare la gente: il dovere, lonestà, essere buoni, essere giusti. No.Sono i desideri che salvano. Sono lunica cosa vera. Tu stai con loro, e ti salverai. Però troppo tardi lho capito. Se le dai tempo, alla vita, lei si rigira in un modo strano, inesorabile: e tu ti accorgi che a quel punto non puoi desiderare qualcosa senza farti del male. È lì che salta tutto, non cè verso di scappare, più ti agiti più si ingarbuglia la rete, più ti ribelli più ti ferisci. Non se ne esce. Quando era troppo tardi, io ho iniziato a desiderare. Con tutta la forza che avevo. Mi sono fatto tanto di quel male che tu non te lo puoi nemmeno immaginare." - Author: Alessandro Baricco

Quotes About Gifts From The Heart

"Subhuti, someone might fill innumerable worlds with the seven treasures and give all away in gifts of alms, but if any good man or any good woman awakens the thought of Enlightenment and takes even only four lines from this Discourse, reciting, using, receiving, retaining and spreading them abroad and explaining them for the benefit of others, it will be far more meritorious. Now in what manner may he explain them to others? By detachment from appearances-abiding in Real Truth. -So I tell you-Thus shall you think of all this fleeting world:A star at dawn, a bubble in a stream;A flash of lightening in a summer cloud,A flickering lamp, a phantom, and a dream.When Buddha finished this Discourse the venerable Subhuti, together with the bhikshus, bhikshunis, lay-brothers and sisters, and the whole realms of Gods, Men and Titans, were filled with joy by His teaching, and, taking it sincerely to heart they went their ways." - Author: Gautama Buddha
