Mankind Quotes

Want oś compassion is not to be numbered among the general faults of mankind. The black ingredient which fouls our disposition is envy.

My salutations to all the past, present and future Perfect Masters, real saints known and unknown lovers of God, and to all other beings, in all of whom I reside, whether consciously felt by them or not.
