Greetings and blessings, everyone!

I would like to start a little - or big - colection of impressive, amazing and memorable phrases and quotes, without really caring about specific subjects, authors, sources or languages.

Please help me with this! I'll start with a quote from the Dalai Lama, taken from one of Rev. Gia's WS-Ning groups.

If you wish to add a personal comment or reflection in your quotes or phrases, please do so! That will be great also!

I thank you for all this! Blessed Be,

Eblis

We can reject everything else: religion, ideology, all received wisdom. But we cannot escape the necessity of love and compassion... This, then, is my true religion, my simple faith. In this sense, there is no need for temple or church, for mosque or synagogue, no need for complicated philosophy, doctrine or dogma. Our own heart, our own mind, is the temple. The doctrine is compassion. Love for others and respect for their rights and dignity, no matter who or what they are: ultimately these are all we need. So long as we practice these in our daily lives, then no matter if we are learned or unlearned, whether we believe in Buddha or God, or follow some other religion or none at all, as long as we have compassion for others and conduct ourselves with restraint out of a sense of responsibility, there is no doubt we will be happy.

~ Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama ~
"Compassion is not religious business, it is human business; it is not luxury, it is essential for our own peace and mental stability; it is essential for human survival".

~ The Dalai Lama.
"Nonviolence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages".

~ Thomas Alva Edison.

He's one of my favourite personal geniuses; he wrote beautifully also; and he's full of memorable quotes! I'm thinking about doing a list of all those quotes!

MP & BB, E. Thank you, Rev. Gia, for helping me so far!
This Nelson Mandela quote is totally awesome!!! Thank you so much!!! My breath was taken away, Rev. Gia!!! BB! E.

Rev. Gia said:
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Nelson Mandela
Is it too much if I publish 3 quotes per message? Hope you like them!

"Consider the public .... Never fear it nor despise it. Coax it, charm it, interest it, stimulate it, shock it now and then if you must, make it laugh, make it cry, but above all ... never, never, never bore the living hell out of it."

-- Noel Coward. The British playwright, who produced several films based on his own scripts, including "In Which We Serve" and "Brief Encounter", died on March 26, 1973.

"I have a total irreverence for anything connected with society except that which makes the roads safer, the beer stronger, the food cheaper and the old men and old women warmer in the winter and happier in the summer."

-- Brendan Behan, Irish playwright author of "The Quare Fellow" and the autobiographical "Borstal Boy". A member of the Irish Republican Army (IRA), he was imprisoned twice for political activity. He died on March 20, 1964.

"A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know."

-- Diane Arbus, U.S. photographer known for her images of dwarfs, nudists and carnival performers. On March 14, 1932, George Eastman, American photographic pioneer who founded the Kodak company, committed suicide.
This is not the famous, BUT INFAMOUS quote of the day:

"When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and you argue about what to do about it only after you have had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb."

~ American physicist Robert Oppenheimer, widely known as the father of the atomic bomb. On May 20, 2000, the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty review conference ended at the United Nations with an "unequivocal undertaking" by the five nuclear weapons countries to total nuclear disarmament.
"I was astonished at the effect my successful landing in France had on the nations of the world. To me, it was like a match lighting a bonfire."

-- U.S. aviator Charles Lindbergh. On May 21, 1927, Lindbergh became the first pilot to fly the Atlantic solo, from Long Island, New York, to Paris.
This is my favorite poem and has been for a long time.

Flanders Field.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
-----Lt. Col. John McCrae (1872-1918)
This poem is absolutely amazing, Colleen! Thank you so much! Loved it!

Continuing with my tradition of keeping a history record of Rev. Gia's quotes from her Ki'Lin Circle...

It is not merely enthusiasm that erodes when practice declines. Your body and mind go out of tune. You are no longer a vessel of insight. The cardinal can sing; the wind can move the ironwood trees delicately; a child can ask a wise question - and where is your center? How can you respond?

It is time to put yourself back in tune, to be ready for experiences that make life fulfilling. Take up the advice for beginners. Put your zazen pad somewhere between your bathroom and your kitchen. Sit down there in the morning after you use the bathroom and before you cook breakfast. You are sitting with everyone in the world. If you can sit only briefly, you will have at least settled your day.


~ Robert Aitken, Encouraging Words
"Certainly in the next 50 years we shall see a woman president, perhaps sooner than you think. A woman can and should be able to do any political job that a man can do".

-- U.S. President Richard Nixon in 1969. On May 22, 1972, Nixon became the first U.S. president to visit Moscow.

Not even a psychic could have done this prediction better! Nowadays we have many Female Presidents & Prime Ministers in the World... Barack Obama is proudly the first African American in the White House... There are many Women in World Politics, which is always great and make the World better in many, many ways!

"On the contrary".

~ Last words of Norwegian dramatist Henrik Ibsen, uttered after a nurse had said he 'seemed to be a little better'. Ibsen, known for "Peer Gynt" and other plays, died on May 23, 1906.
