He has no desires. He has cast off his chains. He walks on air. He is free, Tumbling like a leaf in the wind, From life to life. He has gone beyond the world, Beyond joy and sorrow. His mind is always cool. He lives as if he had no body.
- Ashtavakra Gita 18:21-22
It is my belief that whereas the twentieth century has been a century of war and untold suffering, the twenty-first century should be one of peace and dialogue. As the continued advances in information technology make our world a truly global village, I believe there will come a time when war and armed conflict will be considered an outdated and obsolete method of settling differences among nations and communities.
- His Holiness the Dalai Lama
There is a key for everything, and the key to Paradise is to love the poor.
- Hadith The Prophet Muhammad (SAW), as reported by Ibn Umar
An attitude of gratitude creates blessings.
- Sir John Templeton
Independence is never given to a people, it has to be earned; and having been earned, it has to be defended.
