Pearls of Wisdom

Einstein Banner

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom the emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand wrapped in awe, is as good as dead — his eyes are closed.”

 Albert Einstein

When you think in a certain way you, may feel considerably better. So when you think along the lines of nature, then you think properly. ∼ C.G. Jung

The mind is its own place and in itself can make a heaven of hell and a hell of heaven. ∼ John Milton

I run in ever widening circles to find the centre of myself.  Jess Lair

Jeder von uns ist nur ein Mensch, nur ein Versuch, ein Unterwegs. Er sollte aber dorthin unterwegs sein, wo das Vollkommene ist, er soll ins Zentrum streben, nicht an die Peripherie.  Hermann Hesse

Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.  Jim Morrison

Nur wer nicht sucht, ist vor Irrtum sicher. ∼ Arthur Schopenhauer

Wenn jemand sucht, dann geschieht es leicht, daß sein Auge nur noch das Ding sieht, das er sucht, daß er nichts zu finden, nichts in sich einzulassen vermag, weil er nur an das Gesuchte denkt, weil er ein Ziel hat, weil er vom Ziel besessen ist. Finden aber heißt: frei sein, offen stehen, kein Ziel haben. ∼ Hermann Hesse 

Nur das Denken, das wir leben, hat einen Wert. ∼ Hermann Hesse

Glaube und Zweifel bedingen einander wie Ein-­ und Ausatmen; sie gehören zusammen.   ∼ Hermann Hesse

What would it be like if you
lived each day, each breath,
as a work of art in progress?
Imagine that you are a
Masterpiece unfolding,
every second of every day
a work of art taking form
with every breath.
 Thomas Crum

All fixed set patterns are incapable of adaptibility or pliability. The truth is outside of all fixed patterns.
∼ Bruce Lee

Knowing is not enough, you must apply. Willing is not enough, you must do.
∼ Bruce Lee

Be water, my friend.
∼ Bruce Lee

He who says he can
and he who says he can’t
– both are usually right.
 Confucius

Life and spirit are two powers or necessities, between which man is placed. Spirit gives meaning to his life, and the possibility of the greatest development. But life is essential to spirit, since its truth is nothing if it cannot live. ∼ Carl G. Jung

Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.                     ∼ Leo Tolstoy

To see a world in a grain of sand
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour.
William Blake

Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by
those who could not hear the music.
