Eyes Can Seal

“There is nothing we like to communicate
to others as much as the seal of secrecy
together with what lies under it.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

False Consumption

“In our appetite for gossip,
we tend to gobble down everything before us,
only to find, too late,
that it is our ideals we have consumed,
and we have not been enlarged by the feasts
but only diminished.”

Pico Iyer

Travelin Lite

“Travel light on your journey in life.
Your desires and expectations are heavy baggage
which slow you down and thwart your progress.
Let them go.”
H.H. Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji

Rocky Dependence

“A true friend knows your weaknesses
but shows you your strengths;
feels your fears but fortifies your faith;
sees your anxieties but frees your spirit;
recognizes your disabilities
but emphasizes your possibilities.”

William Arthur Ward

Loving Assortment

“If you may count every drop of water in the ocean
and count every grain of sand in the sea –
multiply it by a thousand and that’s how much I love you.”

George of Langkloof

By the Soul’s Light

“There is one spectacle grander than the sea,
that is the sky;
there is one spectacle grander than the sky,
that is the interior of the soul.”
Victor Hugo

Arrow of Illusion

“He who knows that this body is like froth,
and has learnt that it is as
unsubstantial as a mirage,
will break the flower-pointed arrow of illusion,
and never see the king of death.”

The Dhammapada (c. BC 300)

Who? Me?

“Camouflage is a game we all like to play,
but our secrets are as surely revealed by
what we want to seem to be as by
what we want to conceal.”

Russell Lynes

Gentle Lap

“Nothing in the world is more
flexible and yielding than water.
Yet when it attacks the firm and the strong,
none can withstand it,
because they have no way to change it.
So the flexible overcome the adamant,
the yielding overcome the forceful.
Everyone knows this, but no one can do it.”

Lao Tzu
