Freedom is not found in escaping "this" or possessing "that" . . . Real freedom is the active understanding that the world of "this and that" is a window into a higher order of reality not limited by the opposites.
The Self in you is the same as the Self Universal. Whatever powers are manifested throughout the world, those powers exist in germ, in latency, in you.... If you realize the unity of the Self amid the diversities of the Not-Self, then Yoga Will not seem an impossible thing to you.
Today we're seeing that climate change is about more than a few unseasonably mild winters or hot summers. It's about the chain of natural catastrophes and devastating weather patterns that global warming is beginning to set off around the world.. the frequency and intensity of which are breaking records thousands of years old.
Hope is itself a species of happiness, and, perhaps, the chief happiness which this world affords: but, like all other pleasures immoderately enjoyed, the excesses of hope must be expiated by pain; and expectations improperly indulged must end in disappointment.
The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt.
The boy who expects every morning to open into a new world finds that today is like yesterday, but he believes tomorrow will be different
Globalization, as defined by rich people like us, is a very nice thing... you are talking about the Internet, you are talking about cell phones, you are talking about computers. This doesn't affect two-thirds of the people of the world.
Prejudice and self-sufficiency naturally proceed from inexperience of the world and ignorance of mankind.
I admire addicts. In a world where everybody is waiting for some bline, random disaster, or some sudden disease, the addict has the comfort of knowing what will most likely wait for him down the road. He's taken some control over his ultimate fate, and his addiction keeps the cause of death from being a total surprise.
All the world is full of suffering. It is also full of overcoming.
In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.
Be the change you want to see in the world.
He who lives only to benefit himself confers on the world a benefit when he dies.
If you have anything really valuable to contribute to the world it will come through the expression of your own personality, that single spark of divinity that sets you off and makes you different from every other living creature.
How various his employments whom the world Calls idle; and who justly in return Esteems that busy world an idler too!
One of the amusements of idleness is reading without the fatigue of close attention; and the world therefore swarms with writers whose wish is not to be studied, but to be read.
Christ has no body on earth but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours.Yours are the eyes through which Christ's compassion for the world is to look out; yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good; and yours are the hands with which He is to bless us now
The greatest crime in the world is not developing your potential. When you do what you do best, you are helping not only yourself, but the world.
World economies are always so tenuous and we are subject to so many losses in life, but a compassionate attitude is something we can always carry with us.
The greatest crime in the world is not developing your potential. When you do what you do best, you are helping not only yourself,but the world.
I think a photography class should be a requirement in all educational programs because it makes you see the world rather than just look at it.
Photography, as we all know, is not real at all. It is an illusion of reality with which we create our own private world.
Many pictures turn out to be limp translations of the known world instead of vital objects which create an intrinsic world of their own. There is a vast difference between taking a picture and making a photograph.
The world is going to pieces and people like Adams and Weston are photographing rocks!
In photography, if I am able to evoke not only a feeling of the reality of the surface physical world but also a feeling of the reality of existence that lies mysteriously and invisibly beneath its surface, I feel I have succeeded. At its best, photography is a symbol that not only serves to help illuminate some of the darkness of the unknown, but it also serves to lessen the fears that too often accompany the journeys from the known to the unknown.
