The story of your dishonor will be repeated endlessly: and for a man of honor, dishonor is worse than death. These brave warriors will think you are withdrawn from battle out of fear, and those who formerly esteemed you will treat you with disrespect. Your enemies will ridicule your strength and say things that should not be said. What could be more painful than this?
- Bhagavad Gita 2:34-36

When we say, "I take refuge in the Buddha," we should also understand that "The Buddha takes refuge in me," because without the second part the first part is not complete. The Buddha needs us for awakening, understanding, and love to be real things and not just concepts. They must be real things that have real effects on life. Whenever I say, "I take refuge in the Buddha," I hear "the Buddha takes refuge in me."
- Thich Nhat Hanh, "Being Peace"

A group of men came to Rabi'a in order to test her. They said: 'Virtues and special gifts have been bestowed on men, not women. The crown of nobility has been placed on the heads of men, and the belt of generosity has been tied around their waists. The gift of prophesy has never descended on any woman. What can you boast of?' Rabi'a replied: 'I shall not dispute what you say. Yet women are less prone to pride, egoism and self-worship; they are less liable to think highly of themselves. And they do not so readily exploit others for their own pleasure.'
- Attar, "Rabi'a"

A general rule for the good use of time is to accustom oneself to live in a continual dependence on the Spirit of God.
- Francois Fenelon

Man is the only animal that laughs and weeps, for he is the only animal that is struck with the difference between what things are, and what they ought to be.
- William Hazlitt

A person should be more concerned with spiritual than with material matters, but another person's material welfare is his own spiritual concern.

Religious Thought 17

To those steadfast in love and devotion I give spiritual wisdom, so that they may come to me. Out of compassion I destroy the darkness of their ignorance. From within them I light the lamp of wisdom and dispel all darkness from their lives.
- Bhagavad Gita 10:10-11

When you ride in a boat and watch the shore, you might assume that the shore is moving. But when you keep your eyes closely on the boat, you can see that the boat moves. Similarly, if you examine myriad things with a confused body and mind you might suppose that your mind and nature are permanent. When you practice intimately and return to where you are, it will be clear that nothing at all has unchanging self.
- "Actualizing the Fundamental Point" by Zen Master Dogen

Strengthen me, my lord, for I am overcome with feebleness. Ennoble me once more, for I have been cast down. Sustain me, Lord, for I am impoverished.
- From the prayer book "Al-Hizbul-A'zam"

A religious man is a person who holds God and man in one thought at one time, at all times, who suffers harm done to others, whose greatest passion is compassion, whose greatest strength is love and defiance of despair.
- Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel

You cannot see faith, but you can see the footprints of the faithful. We must leave behind "faithful footprints" for others to follow.
- Dr. Dennis Anderson
