Pursuing a happy life without mixing with kinsmen Is like pouring water into a barrel which has no staves. The real profit gained by giving riches Is as one may then live surrounded by kindred. Multitudes of kinsmen will gather around the man Who gives generously and speaks sweetly. In this wide world none enjoys a more faithful family Than he who hands out large gifts and holds back anger.
- Tirukkural 53: 523-526

[P]assion is the cause of blindness, of not seeing, of not knowing, of loss of insight: it is joined with vexation, it does not conduce to Nibbna.
- Anguttara-Nikya

Children tell stories, but in their tales are enfolded many a mystery and moral lesson. Though they may relate many ridiculous things, keep looking in those ruined places for a treasure.
- Rumi

Wherever you are, be all there. Live to the hilt of every situation you believe to be the will of God.
- Jim Elliot

Souls wait up in heaven for thousands of years, longing for their moment upon this earth to do another soul a favor. Angels burn with jealousy each time a human being turns himself around and creates beauty in this world. Heaven is nice, but on the best things, earth has exclusive rights.
- Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneersohn
