“There is a desire within each of us,
in the deep center of ourselves
that we call our heart.
We were born with it,
it is never completely satisfied,
and it never dies.
We are often unaware of it,
but it is always awake.

It is the Human desire for Love.
Every person in this Earth yearns to love,
to be loved, to know love.
Our true identity, our reason for being
is to be found in this desire.

Love is the "why" of life,
why we are functioning at all.
I am convinced
it is the fundamental energy
of the human spirit.
the fuel on which we run,
the wellspring of our vitality.

And grace,
which is the flowing,
creative activity, of love itself,
is what makes all goodness possible.

Love should come first,
it should be the beginning of,
and the reason for everything.”
Gerald G. May, Living in Love

You can't take the sky from me.
“You can't take the sky from me.”
Joss Whedon

Ken Kesey
“You had a choice: you could either strain and look at things that appeared in front of you in the fog, painful as it might be, or you could relax and lose yourself”
Ken Kesey, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

Ayn Rand
“I understood that centuries of chains and lashes will not kill the spirit of man nor the sense of truth within him.”
Ayn Rand, Anthem

“That's it. Love makes us all strong.”
E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly

Lisa Kleypas
“Aristotle taught that stars are made of a different matter than the four earthly elements— a quintessence— that also happens to be what the human psyche is made of. Which is why man’s spirit corresponds to the stars. Perhaps that’s not a very scientific view, but I do like the idea that there’s a little starlight in each of us.”
Lisa Kleypas, Love in the Afternoon

Ken Kesey
“This world… belongs to the strong, my friend! The ritual of our existence is based on the strong getting stronger by devouring the weak.”
Ken Kesey, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

C. JoyBell C.
“Faith belongs to the human spirit. Faith is faith. Humanity is divided by religion, religion is the divider of humanity. If every human could be removed of their blindfolds and see that faith is in itself faith and that this is something which belongs to each and every human being, then at that time the dividers of religion will suddenly mean nothing and we will all see that we are united by faith in and of itself. There is only one faith and it is called faith. And no man needs to prove to another man that what he believes in exists, because even if it does not exist, his faith is his belief that it is there, that something is there, and that in itself is faith. So I do not need to prove to any man that what I believe in exists or not, there is no such contest between man, my faith breathes in the body of my belief; the fact that I believe is the breath of my faith.”
C. JoyBell C.

Wade Davis
“The world in which you were born is just one model of reality. Other cultures are not failed attempts at being YOU: they are unique manifestations of the human spirit.”
Wade Davis

Aberjhani
“Millions cheer the warrior
spilling blood across the ring
while the one who stands for peace
is ridiculed and shamed.
Must hearts forever suffer
from ignorance and greed?
Can bombs heal our souls
or set our spirits free?”
Aberjhani, Songs from the Black Skylark zPed Music Player

Iain Pears
“Philosophy cannot be extinguished, though men will try ... The spirit seeks the light, that is its nature. It wishes to return to its origin, and must forever try to reach enlightenment.”
Iain Pears, The Dream of Scipio

John Marsden
“I guess you can't live at full-on intensity forever. Lying on the bed of my cell in the dark, trembling, waiting for the soldiers to come in and shoot me - you just can't keep doing that. There's something in the human spirit that won't let you live that way.”
John Marsden, A Killing Frost

Janet Bettag
“In that nanosecond of enlightenment I knew that the human spirit survives the death of the physical body and I understood that my wandering soul needed to get back into its earthly habitat.”
Janet Bettag

J.M. Campos
“The problem in this world is that we have poetry but insist on living in prose.”
J.M. Campos, The Wall And The Abyss

J.M. Campos
“We are beings who seek the infinity of beauty over the finitude of time.”
J.M. Campos, The Wall And The Abyss

Witness Lee
“[To] Immediately...turn to our spirit and exercise our spirit to contact God...practically means that we do not trust in ourselves but in God.”
Witness Lee, An Autobiography Of A Person In Spirit

Sadhguru
“In terms of the real quality of a human being, only when suffering comes, when pain comes, does a man stand up as a human being. You can see great human beings surface only when the society is really suffering. When India was under the oppression of British rulers, how many wonderful people stood up? Where are they now? They have just fallen back into their comforts, that's all. All those Ghandis, Patels, Tilaks are still there, but they're dormant. When pain came, they all became alive. They left everything behind and stood up as giants. Where are they now? This is the human misfortune that still there's not enough intelligence in the world that human beings will rise to their peaks when everything is well. They wait for calamities.”
Sadhguru, Mystic's Musings

Witness Lee
“We need to be impressed with these words in verse [2 Cor. 1:]9—“we should not base our confidence on ourselves but on God.” Through the redemption of Christ, the very God, who is in the heavens, has come into us, into our spirit (Col. 1:27; 2 Tim. 4:22). Thank the Lord that He is now in our spirit, calling us to forget about the soulish things and turn to our spirit to meet Him. We should no longer trust in our self, in our soul, but in God who is in our spirit.”
Witness Lee, An Autobiography Of A Person In Spirit

Witness Lee
“The Corinthians talked about spiritual things, but they did so in a fleshy and soulish way. The apostle Paul told them in the first book that they were fleshy and not spiritual (3:1), and in chapter 2 of the first book, he spoke of soulish men (v. 14). A spiritual man (v. 15) is one who does not behave according to the flesh or act according to the soulish life but lives according to the spirit, that is, his spirit (Rom. 1:9) mingled with the Spirit of God (8:16; 1 Cor. 6:17). Such a one is dominated, governed, directed, moved, and led by such a mingled spirit. Although the Corinthians spoke much about spiritual things, the apostle Paul designated them as fleshy and soulish. They were talking about spiritual things in the soul and in the flesh. Some may talk about the heavenly things in Ephesians, but they do so as Corinthians—in the soul or in the flesh.”
Witness Lee

William Ellery Channing
“The human spirit is to grow strong by conflict.”
William Ellery Channing

“When hope turns dark,
I will bring the sun to light it,
I shall guide, protect thee,
For I am the human spirit.

Poem: God’s Dream,
in ‘Chameleon Lights”

Toni Sorenson
“You are not your body, not your appearance. Those are only your packaging. When the physical parts of you wear out, you live on, unencumbered by the weight of flesh and beauty. You are free to soar because you were never those things. You are something more, something eternal.”
Toni Sorenson

Toni Sorenson
“You have within you, something magical. It can’t be seen. It can only be felt from within. But it exists are surely as you exist. It is your spirit—your human spirit.”
Toni Sorenson

“Pain and suffering are like weights and pushups to the human spirit—adversity only makes it stronger.”

“The human spirit carries a torch called hope.”

“Your spirit does not shine when the sun shines and your life is comfortable. It shines when darkness swallows you and you cannot breathe for the strangle of fear. That’s when what was invisible becomes undeniable.”
Toni Sorenson

Toni Sorenson
“The human spirit cannot be seen; neither can it be denied.”
Toni Sorenson

Sara Niles
“The fires that burn deep within our hearts, fueling our deepest loves are indestructible; the power of the human spirit surpasses even death and life.”
Sara Niles, Torn From the Inside Out

Sara Niles
“The power of the undefeatable human spirit, came alive in me, and stirred the embers of my long smoldering anger into a rage of fire. I screamed a battle cry inside myself, and felt the same vigor ignite within me that inspired men for thousands of years to fight when the odds were against them. I became passionate, as I adopted a plan to fight back and win.”
Sara Niles, Torn From the Inside Out

Vic James
