Elif Shafak
“I like to borrow a metaphor from the great poet and mystic Rumi who talks about living like a drawing compass. One leg of the compass is static. It is fixed and rooted in a certain spot. Meanwhile, the other leg draws a huge wide circle around the first one, constantly moving. Just like that, one part of my writing is based in Istanbul. It has strong local roots. Yet at the same time the other part travels the whole wide world, feeling connected to several cities, cultures, and peoples.”
Elif Shafak

Jerzy Kosiński

Jerzy Kosiński

Erik Pevernagie

Arthur C. Clarke
“It was a pity that there was no radar to guide one across the trackless seas of life. Every man had to find his own way, steered by some secret compass of the soul. And sometimes, late or early, the compass lost its power and spun aimlessly on its bearings.

Alan Bishop”
Arthur C. Clarke, Glide Path

Criss Jami, Healology

Craig D. Lounsbrough

Мартина Дечевска
“Реалността не беше ли просто изкуствено създадено понятие, също като времето? Сътворено, за да ориентира хората из многопластието на вселената, което ги улеснява, като им показва само една от вероятностите?”
Мартина Дечевска

Louise Hawes

You are my dear compass,
who knows no way but true,
so when I'm lost and drifting,
I find myself in you.

Yet when I ask you, fearful,
if I should set you free,
imagine my surprise to hear
you take your north from me.”
Louise Hawes, The Language of Stars

“So I come back again to the condition that the Golden Rule, if one adopts it, is a difficult master to serve. The ship’s captain will not throw the compass overboard because the wind blows fair and the day is funny. For he knows, from the experiences of the ocean’s instability, that the danger days of storm are always “just ahead.” So the compass must always be handy and obedience to it must always be loyal. And so with the Golden Rulle—the compass must be ever at hand through life’s journey. It will see us through trying times. And perhaps the most trying of all times comes when success is riding high and we may be tempted to “throw the compass overboard.” It is then we must remember that all good days in human life come from the mastery of the days of trouble that are forever recurrent.”
James Cash Penney

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“Why is it that we don’t worry about a compass until we’re lost in a wilderness of our own making?”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“Due north’ on my compass is largely ‘due’ to the fact that in ‘due’ time I have been ‘unduly’ lax in recalibrating my compass. And I’m apparently ignorant enough to wonder why I’m lost.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“If I have found my journey to be a maddening tangle of wandering ‘rabbit-trails,’ a labyrinth of incessantly circular passages to nowhere and back, and a plethora of assorted ‘dead-ends’ fraudulently disguised as paths of great promise, it can only be because I have mindlessly exchanged God’s compass for mine. Therefore, it would appear that another exchange might be in order.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

David Eddings
“Well, it's nice to know that the Trolls made it this far south,' Ulath said. 'I'd hate to have to go looking for them.'
'Their Gods were guiding them, Ulath,' Tynian pointed out.
'You've never talked with the Troll-Gods, I see,' Ulath laughed. 'Their sense of direction is a little vague - probably because their compass only has two directions on it.'
'North and not-north. It makes finding places a little difficult.”
David Eddings, The Hidden City

“We all need a moral compass. Before you say or do anything, check your inner G.P.S. by asking, "Does this show respect for

Dean Koontz
“Whatever happens here, trust your heart. It's as true as any compass.”
Dean Koontz, Odd Interlude #1

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“All along, I was less concerned about walking a path of integrity and more caught up in a compass calibrated by greed. And with a compass such as this, how is it that I’m having a hard time understanding why I am where I am?”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“Independence that has declared its ‘independence’ from the sure and certain compass of sound morals is nothing more than rogue greed having scantily dressed itself in the garb of independence while running off the cliff of anarchy.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Keri Hulme
“Betelgeuse, Achenar. Orion. Aquila. Centre the Cross and you have a steady compass. But there's no compass for my ever disoriented soul, only ever beckoning ghost lights. In the one sure direction, to the one sure end.”
Keri Hulme

Cormac McCarthy
“He rose and stood tottering in that cold dark with his arms held out for balance while the vestibular calculations in his skull cranked out their reckonings. An old chronicle. To seek out the upright. No fall but preceded by a declination... Upright to what? Something nameless in the night, lode or matrix. To which he and the stars were common satellite. Like the great pendulum in its rotunda scribing through the long day movements of the universe of which you may say it knows nothing and yet know it must.”
Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“A compass calibrated by my greed is a rather shrewd way to legitimize my agenda. However, true north on a compass such as this is a straight line to the edge of a really big cliff.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough
