Carl Sagan
“The idea that God is an oversized white male with a flowing beard, who sits in the sky and tallies the fall of every sparrow is ludicrous. But if by 'God,' one means the set of physical laws that govern the universe, then clearly there is such a God. This God is emotionally unsatisfying... it does not make much sense to pray to the law of gravity.”
Carl Sagan

A.W. Tozer
“God must do everything for us. Our part is to yield and trust”
A.W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God: The Human Thirst for the Divine

Annie Dillard
“There is no less holiness at this time- as you are reading this- than there was on the day the Red Sea parted, or that day in the 30th year, in the 4th month, on the 5th day of the month as Ezekiel was a captive by the river Cheban, when the heavens opened and he saw visions of god. There is no whit less enlightenment under the tree at the end of your street than there was under Buddha’s bo tree…. In any instant the sacred may wipe you with its finger. In any instant the bush may flare, your feet may rise, or you may see a bunch of souls in trees.”
Annie Dillard, For the Time Being

Karen Armstrong
“Even though the discples were not aware of it, the presence was with them while they were reviewing the scriptures together on the road. Henceforth, we will catch only a fleeting glimpse of it -- in the study of sacred writings, in other human beings, in liturgy, and in communion with strangers. But these moments remain us that our fellow men and women are themselves sacred; there is something about them taht is worthy of absolute reverence, is in the last resort mysterious, and we will always elude us.”
Karen Armstrong, The Spiral Staircase: My Climb Out of Darkness

“Bend when you must. Pull when you must. Both are an offering. When you bend, be at peace; when you pull, do so gently.”

Adil Adam Memon

Sherwin B. Nuland
“That enormously complex biological interactions are so flawlessly coordinated as to result in such obvious manifestations as human thought or the electrical activity that dries the heartbeat is as exciting to me -- actually more exciting -- than such phenomena were when I was a small boy and thought them divinely (in the supernatural sense) driven.”
Sherwin B. Nuland, How We Live

“Her Deep Sea Eyes…!
Where i Love to Die 。。。
She….
Is like a lite ray,
From the skies..!
Looks like a fairy,
From the paradise..!
When she moves her feet,
Moon walks side by side..!
Flower blossoms,
On her pink smiles..!
Evening falls,
When she closes her eyes..!
Her awakening,
Makes the sun rise..!!!
Her scent full breaths,
Make the fragrance live..!
Her deep sea eyes,
Where i love to die..!
She...!
Is like a lite ray,
From the skies..!
Looks like a fairy,
From the paradise..!
。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。”

“Every breath away from the awareness of the present moment is a step away from the Self.”
Joseph Cyrus

“Love is a sickness, A strange connection,
It’s a big hobby, o sweet heart..!
Listened many stories,
From elders and wise persons,
But never believe,
Never thought,
Those stories are considerable,
Sitting on the throne of myself,
Never came to know...!
Above that throne, at too much height,
Somewhere
In the crowd of fairies,
In the Anklet of your feet,
In the Shadow of your tresses,
in your small village,
Sun, moon and all stars dance crazily..!
I never came to know all this, o sweetheart,
On the sound of your walking feet, on your pink smile,
On the movement of your eyebrows, on your lovely voice, on your killing eyes,
All flowers of garden care well, for a very little moment of closeness with you sacrifice their life,
I never came to know all this, o sweetheart…!
Moonlit after touching your body propagate everywhere,
Roses get the fragrance from your sweating, in the form of due drops,
I never came to know all this, o sweetheart…!
I was very confident, never face this,
Wise heart, will never be crazy,
but,
Then it happened, sweetheart..!
Felt very sad, sweet heart..!
Heart converted in to blood and started flowing, o sweet heart..!
Convinced too by the movement of your eyebrow,
Came for donation, became a recipient, o sweet heart..!
Convinced by the sayings of elders,
That,
Love is a sickness, a strange connection between souls
It’s a incurable addiction, o sweet heart..!”
zia

Matthieu Ricard
“It’s said that the Buddha’s enlightenment is great than that of a traveler setting out, in the same proportion as the heavens are bigger than what can be seen of them through the eye of a needle. But in both cases, what you see is the sky.”
Matthieu Ricard, The Quantum and the Lotus: A Journey to the Frontiers Where Science and Buddhism Meet

Paulo Coelho
“It is a shame that what happens today already happened yesterday, and will happen again tomorrow; it will continue to happen until the end of time, or until man finds out he is not only what he thinks, but mostly what he feels. The body tires easily, but the spirit is always free and will help us get out, one day, from this infernal cycle of repeating the same mistakes every generation. Although thoughts always remain the same, there is something stronger, and this is called Love.”
Paulo Coelho

“Our compassion, spirituality, and appreciation of beauty provide us with the capacity to love.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

“A Sea and a Drop。。。!
It was night..!
I listened his sighs..!
His heart was beating fast,
He have waited long to say this all,
He fall in love with the Sea, confessed this all..!
Helpless in front of his heart..!
A small, shapeless, poor, tiny water Drop..!
Sea laughed and roared a lot,
Have no ends, depth is limitless
Waves talk to sky, kiss the stars..!
You are nothing at all
Small, tiny, poor Drop..!
By listening this all,
His heart fall apart,
Melt, flowed and dropped..!
Thunder storm, raining start,
It was night, I listened his sighs,
“Love in you is losing my soul
I was in lost battle death at my door
Who else can feel for my pain?
Be in you forever was my last wish,
let beat and rain..!”
I ran to my home, Jealous and think a lot,
At least he becomes her part..!
It is night,
Again raining outside..!
Listening the same voice,
But there are no sighs..!
。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。”

“O Aysel,
Every livings must have
some resting place some where…!
The resting place of my soul
is a beautiful grove
of your magical thoughts…!
I'm so tired
let me enter
and lost in that
peaceful palace…!”
