Many of us spend our whole lives running from feeling with the mistaken belief that you can not bear the pain. But you have already borne the pain. What you have not done is feel all you are beyond that pain.

The person you consider ignorant and insignificant is the one who came from God that he might learn bliss from grief and knowledge from gloom.

It takes a minute to have a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, and a day to love someone... but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.

Life without liberty is like a body without spirit.

For what is evil but good tortured by its own hunger and thirst?

We are all like the bright moon, we still have our darker side.

We are all prisoners, but some of us are in cells with windows and some without.

I have found both freedom and safety in my madness; the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us.

Much of your pain is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self.

What is this world that is hastening me toward I know not what, viewing me with contempt?

Wisdom ceases to be wisdom when it becomes too proud to weep, too grave to laugh and too selfish to seek other than itself.

Your daily life is your temple and your religion. When you enter into it take with you your all.

Love is trembling happiness.

Knowledge cultivates your seeds and does not sow in your seeds.

Work is love made visible. And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy.

What difference is there between us, save a restless dream that follows my soul, but fears to come near you?

Yesterday is but today's memory and tomorrow is today's dream.

There are those who give with joy, and that joy is their reward.

But let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another, but make not a bond of love: let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.

Exaggeration is truth that has lost its temper.
