    Oscar Wilde
    “Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.”
    Oscar Wilde

    “You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
    To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
    Buckminster Fuller

    Albert Einstein
    “It would be possible to describe everything scientifically, but it would make no sense; it would be without meaning, as if you described a Beethoven symphony as a variation of wave pressure.”
    Albert Einstein

  • #5
    J.R.R. Tolkien
    “What do you fear, lady?" [Aragorn] asked.
    "A cage," [Éowyn] said. "To stay behind bars, until use and old age accept them, and all chance of doing great deeds is gone beyond recall or desire.”
    J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King

  • #6
    Zeena Schreck
    “Shapeshifting requires the ability to transcend your attachments, in particular your ego attachments to identity and who you are. If you can get over your attachment to labeling yourself and your cherishing of your identity, you can be virtually anybody. You can slip in and out of different shells, even different animal forms or deity forms.”
    Zeena Schreck

    Isaac Asimov
    “Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in a while, or the light won't come in.”
    Isaac Asimov

  • #8
    Tara Brach
    “Clearly recognizing what is happening inside us, and regarding what we see with an open, kind and loving heart, is what I call Radical Acceptance. If we are holding back from any part of our experience, if our heart shuts out any part of who we are and what we feel, we are fueling the fears and feelings of separation that sustain the trance of unworthiness. Radical Acceptance directly dismantles the very foundations of this trance.”
    Tara Brach, Radical Acceptance: Embracing Your Life With the Heart of a Buddha

    Sean Penn
    “When everything gets answered, it's fake.”
    Sean Penn

    Amit Ray
    “Your greatest awakening comes, when you are aware about your infinite nature.”
    Amit Ray, Meditation: Insights and Inspirations

    Vine Deloria Jr.
    “Religion is for people who're afraid of going to hell. Spirituality is for those who've already been there.”
    Vine Deloria Jr.

  • #11
    Shannon L. Alder
    “I am convinced that the jealous, the angry, the bitter and the egotistical are the first to race to the top of mountains. A confident person enjoys the journey, the people they meet along the way and sees life not as a competition. They reach the summit last because they know God isn’t at the top waiting for them. He is down below helping his followers to understand that the view is glorious where ever you stand.”
    Shannon Alder

    Walt Whitman
    “Re-examine all you have been told. Dismiss what insults your soul.”
    Walt whitman

  • #13
    Stephen Richards
    “When you connect to the silence within you, that is when you can make sense of the disturbance going on around you.”
    Stephen Richards

  • #14
    Albert Einstein
    “The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom the emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand wrapped in awe, is as good as dead —his eyes are closed. The insight into the mystery of life, coupled though it be with fear, has also given rise to religion. To know what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty, which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their most primitive forms—this knowledge, this feeling is at the center of true religiousness.”
    Albert Einstein, Living Philosophies

  • #15
    Rumi
    “My heart is so small
    it's almost invisible.
    How can You place
    such big sorrows in it?
    "Look," He answered,
    "your eyes are even smaller,
    yet they behold the world.”
    Rumi

  • #16
    Saul Williams
    “Have you ever lost yourself in a kiss? I mean pure psychedelic inebriation. Not just lustful petting but transcendental metamorphosis when you became aware that the greatness of this being was breathing into you. Licking the sides and corners of your mouth, like sealing a thousand fleshy envelopes filled with the essence of your passionate being and then opened by the same mouth and delivered back to you, over and over again - the first kiss of the rest of your life. A kiss that confirms that the universe is aligned, that the world's greatest resource is love, and maybe even that God is a woman. With or without a belief in God, all kisses are metaphors decipherable by allocations of time, circumstance, and understanding”
    Saul Williams, , said the shotgun to the head.

    T.D. Jakes
    “No woman wants to be in submission to a man who isn't in submission to God!”
    T D Jakes

    Anaïs Nin
    “The possession of knowledge does not kill the sense of wonder and mystery. There is always more mystery.”
    Anais Nin

  • #19
    Alan W. Watts
    “Your body does not eliminate poisons by knowing their names. To try to control fear or depression or boredom by calling them names is to resort to superstition of trust in curses and invocations. It is so easy to see why this does not work. Obviously, we try to know, name, and define fear in order to make it “objective,” that is, separate from “I.”
    Alan Wilson Watts, The Wisdom of Insecurity: A Message for an Age of Anxiety

  • #20
    Alan W. Watts
    “We do not "come into" this world; we come out of it, as leaves from a tree. As the ocean "waves," the universe "peoples." Every individual is an expression of the whole realm of nature, a unique action of the total universe.”
    Alan Wilson Watts

  • #21
    Peter Greenaway
    “I have often thought it was very arrogant to suppose you could make a film for anybody but yourself.”
    Peter Greenaway

  • #22
    Guillermo del Toro
    “The saddest journey in the world is the one that follows a precise itinerary. Then you're not a traveler. You're a f@@king tourist.”
    Guillermo del Toro

  • #23
    Alan W. Watts
    “Zen does not confuse spirituality with thinking about God while one is peeling potatoes. Zen spirituality is just to peel the potatoes.”
    Alan Watts

  • #24
    Alan W. Watts
    “We are living in a culture entirely hypnotized by the illusion of time, in which the so-called present moment is felt as nothing but an infintesimal hairline between an all-powerfully causative past and an absorbingly important future. We have no present. Our consciousness is almost completely preoccupied with memory and expectation. We do not realize that there never was, is, nor will be any other experience than present experience. We are therefore out of touch with reality. We confuse the world as talked about, described, and measured with the world which actually is. We are sick with a fascination for the useful tools of names and numbers, of symbols, signs, conceptions and ideas.”
    Alan Wilson Watts

    Alan W. Watts
    “Muddy water is best cleared by leaving it alone.”
    Alan Watts

  • #26
    Roger Kimball
    “It is often said that great works of art are “inexhaustible”—capable, as Stanley Olson put it, of “endless interpretation. But Lubin, the Charlotte C. Weber Professor of Art at Wake Forest University, demonstrates in painful if inadvertently hilarious detail that this does not mean that works of art are immune from - that they are not in fact often subject to—wild and perverse misinterpretation.”
    Roger Kimball, The Rape of the Masters: How Political Correctness Sabotages Art

  • #27
    Robert Anton Wilson
    “The most thoroughly and relentlessly damned, banned, excluded, condemned, forbidden, ostracized, ignored, suppressed, repressed, robbed, brutalized and defamed of all 'Damned Things' is the individual human being. The social engineers, statisticians, psychologists, sociologists, market researchers, landlords, bureaucrats, captains of industry, bankers, governors, commissars, kings and presidents are perpetually forcing this 'Damned Thing' into carefully prepared blueprints and perpetually irritated that the 'Damned Thing' will not fit into the slot assigned it. The theologians call it a sinner and try to reform it. The governor calls it a criminal and tries to punish it. The psychologist calls it a neurotic and tries to cure it. Still, the 'Damned Thing' will not fit into their slots.”
    Robert Anton Wilson

  • #28
    Criss Jami
    “True rebels hate their own rebellion. They know by experience that it is not a cool and glamorous lifestyle; it takes a courageous fool to say things that have not been said and to do things that have not been done.”
    Criss Jami, Venus in Arms

  • #29
    Ralph Waldo Emerson
    “A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do. He may as well concern himself with his shadow on the wall. Speak what you think now in hard words, and to-morrow speak what to-morrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you said to-day. — 'Ah, so you shall be sure to be misunderstood.' — Is it so bad, then, to be misunderstood? Pythagoras was misunderstood, and Socrates, and Jesus, and Luther, and Copernicus, and Galileo, and Newton, and every pure and wise spirit that ever took flesh. To be great is to be misunderstood.”
    Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance
