2. "Barbatii si femeile sînt diferiti. Nu sînt mai buni sau mai rai — ci diferiti. Singurul lucru pe care îl au în comun este faptul ca apartin aceleiasi specii. Ei traiesc în lumi diferite, cu valori diferite si conform unor reguli diferite. Toata lumea stie asta, dar foarte putini oameni, si mai ales foarte putini barbati, sînt dispusi s-o recunoasca. Acesta e totusi adevarul."
Author: Allan Pease

4. "I believe emotional suppression fueled by a shamed imagination lies at the root of society's ailments. It is the believing leaders of religion that keep the "denial circus" going decade after decade. We have, for too long, supported this tyranny of delusion. We have given the guru and the preacher the stage one too many times. It is time to wake up and replace the preacher with the human teacher—a human who is the intelligence of their whole organism."
Author: Christopher Loren
5. "I actually got a part in 'The Love Guru', that Mike Myers film. I heard it's awful. I got a Razzie award for it, which I'm quite proud of, but I still haven't seen it. I have no plans to branch out."
Author: Daniel Tosh

The root cause of this is, because priests, Gurus, self-made Gods, Kings are governing the world by their made religions and its dogmas. There will be peace on this earth if the God of nature govern this world by his own Universal laws. All we have to do is to know these laws and obey."
Author: Dev Samudre.

9. "There is a theory that if you yearn sincerely enough for a Guru, you will find one. The universe will shift, destiny's molecules will get themselves organized and your path will soon intersect with the path of the master you need."
Author: Elizabeth Gilbert
10. "The notion is that human beings are born, (as my Guru has explained many times,) with equivalent potential for both contraction and expansion. The ingredients of both darkness and light are equally present in all of us, and then it's up to the individual (or the family, or the society) to decide what will be brought forth - the virtues or the malevolence. The madness of this planet is largely a result of human being's difficulty in coming into virtuous balance with himself. Lunacy (both collective and individual) results."
Author: Elizabeth Gilbert
11. "[My guru] says that people universally tend to think that happiness is a stroke of luck, something that will maybe descend upon you like fine weather if you are fortunate enough. But that's not how happiness works. Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it..."
Author: Elizabeth Gilbert
12. "So I stood up and did a handstand on my Guru's roof, to celebrate the notion of liberation. I felt the dusty tiles under my hands. I felt my own strength and balance. I felt the easy night breeze on the palms of my bare feet. This kind of thing -- a spontaneous handstand--isn't something a disembodied cool blue soul can do, but a human being can do it. We have hands; we can stand on them if we want to. That's our privilege. That's the joy of a mortal body. And that's why God needs us. Because God loves to feel things through our hands."
Author: Elizabeth Gilbert
13. "Why can't I solve this problem by killing someone? she though petulantly, then comforted herself with the mantra that had kept her going in prison: "Soon all the humans will be dead," she said, droning in the time-honored fashion of gurus everywhere. "And then Opal will be loved."And even if I'm not loved, she thought, at least all the humans will be dead."
Author: Eoin Colfer
14. "Dupa cum se pare, demnitatea vietii omului nu a fost prevazuta in planul globalizarii. Nelinistea e singurul lucru care a ajuns pe culmi niciodata banuite. Este o lume care traieste in perversitate, unde unii, putini, isi contabilizeaza castigurile pe seama amputarii vietii imensei majoritati. S-a ajuns la aparitia unui biet om care apartine lumii dezvoltate si care are acces la nenumarate produse dintr-un supermarket. Si in timp ce acel sarman nefericit doarme linistit, inchis in fortareata lui de aparate si ciurucuri, mii de familii trebuie sa reziste cu doar un dolar pe zi. Marginalizatii de la marele banchet al economistilor se numara cu milioanele."
Author: Ernesto Sabato
15. "Fiecare e stapân pe propria-i moarte, iar singurul lucru pe care-l putem face, odata sosit ceasul,este sa-i ajutam pe oameni sa moara fara teama ?i dureri."
Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
16. "The road to spiritual enlightenment is an individual experience. The spiritual leader, guru, master or teacher is only a portion of that journey. Eventually, one must "leave the nest" so that they are not limited by the master/student relationship. True advancement begins when the student gains confidence as a practitioner of self-awareness. This can only be done without the constraints of another's journey, such as the master or teacher."
Author: Gary Hopkins

Author: Gina Patrichi
18. "Seperti bangsa lain, kita juga cenderung egosentris. Kita juga mengira bahwa jadi bangsa tua adalah suatu kelebihan. Apalagi dulu guru-guru kolonial suka membisikkan "kelebihan" itu - seraya mengelus hati kita yang terluka oleh penjajahan. Kita tak curiga bahwa di balik elusan itu mungkin terselip anjuran: kalian jangan ikut-ikut memasuki zaman kini. Teruslah dengan kebanggaan masa silamnya!"
Author: Goenawan Mohamad

21. "When you're sick and dying, the ego is and should be the first thing to go. I know there're gurus who teach people how to release the ego, to conquer the ego. I get it now, but I didn't back when I was healthy. It's moot now. The guy who falls off the toilet and knocks himself out no longer has an ego."
Author: J.R. Rain
22.

Astfel ca adevarul a devenit singurul meu scop. El a devenit din ce în ce mai important pentru mine, iar sensurile pe care i le-am dat au devenit din ce în ce mai largi."
Author: Mahatma Gandhi
26. "[...]istoria, acest fluviu care inainta spre necunoscut, si al carui capat viu simtisem atatia ani ca eram eu, aveau s-o faca altii, mie imi ramanea doar acest teritoriu de cucerit si singurul cu care puteam s-o influentez: cuvantul scris. Nu era mult, dar nici putin."
Author: Marin Preda
27. "Po?i munci ca un schimnic ani la rând, ba la drept vorbind acesta este singurul mod în care se cuvine sa munce?ti; vine însa o clipa când sim?i nevoia sa ara?i lumii ce-ai muncit, nu atât pentru a-?i evalua judecata, cât pentru a capata siguran?a în legatura cu existen?a acestei munci, ba chiar în legatura cu propria existen?a; înlauntrul unei specii sociale, individualitatea nu mai reprezinta decât o fic?iune pasagera."
Author: Michel Houellebecq

Author: Mike Mauthor
29. "Jika doa diwariskan serta dapat dipelajari dari guru dan buku, munajat adalah doa yang diwariskan oleh kesakitan hakiki seorang manusia yang sudah menemukan kesungguhan menginginkan-Nya, tetapi karena kesadaran akan kelemahan dan dosa, tidak sanggup melakukan apapun kecuali Tuhan mau mengampuni dan menghadirkan diri-Nya sendiri."
Author: Miranda Risang Ayu
30. "Timpul d-tale interior, singurul care conteaza, îti apartine. Poti munci visând, sau amintindu-ti, sau gândind. Numai munca savârsita întru împlinirea unei vocatii, si în primul rând scrisul, pentru ca procesul lui e cel mai complicat, numai aceasta munca te confisca definitiv. Numai actul creatiei îti cere aceasta jertfa..."
Author: Mircea Eliade

42. "Not to grow up properly is to retain our 'caterpillar' quality from childhood (where it is a virtue) into adulthood (where it becomes a vice). In childhood our credulity serves us well. It helps us to pack, with extraordinary rapidity, our skulls full of the wisdom of our parents and our ancestors. But if we don't grow out of it in the fullness of time, our caterpillar nature makes us a sitting target for astrologers, mediums, gurus, evangelists and quacks. The genius of the human child, mental caterpillar extraordinary, is for soaking up information and ideas, not for criticizing them. If critical faculties later grow it will be in spite of, not because of, the inclinations of childhood. The blotting paper of the child's brain is the unpromising seedbed, the base upon which later the sceptical attitude, like a struggling mustard plant, may possibly grow. We need to replace the automatic credulity of childhood with the constructive scepticism of adult science."
Author: Richard Dawkins
43. "But then the subject turned to the spiritual life and Meg talked about her many visits to ashrams in India and her admiration for Swami Muktananda and Gurumayi. That got in the way, especially because he told her of his skepticism regarding the guru industry, and suggested she might profitably read Gita Mehta's book Karma Cola. "Why are you so cynical?" she asked him, as if she genuinely wanted to know the answer, and he said that if you grew up in India it was easy to conclude that these people were fakes. "Yes, of course there are lots of charlatans," she said, reasonably, "but can't you discriminate?" He shook his head sadly. "No," he said. "No, I can't." That was the end of their chat."
Author: Salman Rushdie
44. "Without knowing how to calculate the odds on such matters, it seems improbably to me that God would have whispered the meaning of my life into the ear of some guru or authority."
Author: Sam Keen
45. "Bila hidup adalah guru, aku seperti murid yang tak mampu menjawab pertanyaannya di depan kelas. Yang kuinginkan adalah menghilang, menghilang, menghilang dari tatapan murid lain yang mengejek. Lenyap dari segala pandangan mereka"
Author: Soe Tjen Marching
46. "This book is not the memoir of a contented man. It's not the poignant reflections of a white-haired guru who has finally figured out the secret to contentment. It's more like sweaty, bloody, hastily scribbled notes from a battlefield. I'm still struggling to escape the sinister fingers on this conspiracy. I'm still waging war against the discontentment that rages in my life. I can see contentment in the distance, like a hazy oasis, but I have to pick my way through a minefield to get there. I'm not the contented man God wants me to be, but I'm fighting to get there. I'm writing this book the hope that you'll join me in the fight."
Author: Stephen Altrogge
47. "100% of a Guru's marketing plan depends on you holding the belief that you are not enough; that you were created less equipped than necessary to fulfill your purpose. What if you let go of that belief and connected with the truth of your innate power to change and shape your life? You ARE enough. You CAN change and shape your own life. Anyone who tells you different is simply lying. Your life has immeasurable potentiality for greatness; act accordingly."
Author: Steve Maraboli
48. "Ibarat manusia tanpa keperibadian, universiti moden tidak mempunyai pusat yang sangat penting dan tetap, tidak ada prinsip-prinsip utama yang tetap, yang menjelaskan tujuan akhirnya. Ia tetap menganggap dirinya memikirkan hal-hal universal dan bahkan menyatakan memiliki fakulti dan jurusan sebagaimana layaknya tubuh suatu organ - tetapi ia tidak memiliki otak, jangan akal (intellect) dan jiwa, kecuali oleh dalam suatu fungsi pengurusan murni untuk pemeliharaan dan perkembangan jasmani. Perkembangannya tidak dibimbing oleh suatu prinsip yang akhir dan tujuan yang jelas, kecuali oleh prinsip nisbi yang mendorong mengejar ilmu tanpa henti dan tujuan yang jelas."
Author: Syed Muhammad Naquib Al Attas
49. "Dalam urusan apapun, penting sekali memiliki ilmunya. Maka, tuntutlah ilmu setinggi mungkin, rengkuh dia dari tempat-tempat jauh, kumpulkan dia dari sumber-sumber terbaik, guru-guru yang tulus, agar terang cahaya kalian, terang oleh ilmu itu."
Author: Tere Liye
50. "The highest men are calm, silent and unknown...The true masters seldom reveal themselves, except in the vibrations the leave behind, and upon which the lesser gurus build their doctrines."
