My Favorite Quotes @ The Moment

I love quotes (what don’t I love?)…

“There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way.” ~ A Buddhist Proverb

“Self-realization before God-realization.” ~ A Mystic Saying

“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience, we are spiritual beings having a human experience.” ~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

“Up to the Twentieth Century, reality was everything humans could touch, smell, see, and hear. Since the initial publication of the chart of the electromagnetic spectrum, humans have learned that what they can touch, smell, see and hear is less than one-millionth of reality.” ~ Albert Einstein

Here’s a practical one from Dear Abby:   “A streetwise individual once told me, ‘the best way out of a jam is not to get into one in the first place’.  That tidbit has served me well.”

A practical favorite of my Dad’s:  “Everything in moderation.”

It is so true.  (As an aside, just to prove that Dad was also a gentleman, and a scholar, he was the one who, when I was five or so, named my teddy bear “Horatio,” after Hamlet’s dear friend a la Shakespeare, and my cat “Hildegard” after Hildegard von Bingen, an amazing historical figure and woman of many talents).

The personal quotes that I try to live by:

“Everything in its own time.”

“Let Go, Let God.”

“Carpe Diem – Seize the Day.”

“Meet people where they’re at.”

“To each his/her own.”

And finally:

“Nobody panic, everything’s gonna be alright.” 🙂

Well, almost. And for now…a Final Post Script. (These are a few more goodies that I decided to add in June, 2013):

“Don’t let your happiness depend on something you may lose.” C.S. Lewis

“Look on the bright side of Life.” ~ from the movie “Life of Brian”

How do birds fly? They take themselves lightly.” ~ MUTTS Comic Strip

“We are the most ourselves when we achieve the seriousness of children at play.” ~ Heraclitus

“There is a Divine Plan behind everything, and if we allow ourselves to be used by that unseen Force…many things can happen in a mysterious, miraculous way…” ~ Satchidananda

“I shall not commit the fashionable stupidity of regarding everything I cannot explain as a fraud.” ~ C.G. Jung

“The kingdom of God is within you.” ~ The Bible, Luke 17:21

“I looked in temples, churches & mosques. But I found the Divine within my heart”. ~ Rumi

“Saints come into the world by the grace and mercy of the Lord. They do not come to make it a better place, nor to improve its lot, but to free us from our bonds of attachment and turn our attention towards the Father. They come to make us blind to this world and give us the sight to see the Lord”. ~ Maharaj Charan Singh

“May God in His mercy grant that every day we may be troubled, tried,
disciplined, or make some progress.” ~
St. Augustine (a true Spiritual Warrior!)
