C.G. Jung
“How can I be substantial if I do not cast a shadow? I must have a dark side also If I am to be whole.”
C.G. Jung, Modern Man in Search of a Soul

Vera Nazarian
“Love is made up of three unconditional properties in equal measure:

1. Acceptance
2. Understanding
3. Appreciation

Remove any one of the three and the triangle falls apart.

Which, by the way, is something highly inadvisable. Think about it — do you really want to live in a world of only two dimensions?

So, for the love of a triangle, please keep love whole.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

Maquita Donyel Irvin

and yet never fully complete”

Marie Lu
“You have to learn to look at the whole of something, not just the parts.”
Marie Lu, Warcross

Deb Caletti
“Family was even a bigger word than I imagined, wide and without limitations, if you allowed it, defying easy definition. You had family that was supposed to be family and wasn't, family that wasn't family but was, halves becoming whole, wholes splitting into two; it was possible to lack whole, honest love and connection from family in lead roles, yet to be filled to abundance by the unexpected supporting players.”
Deb Caletti, The Secret Life of Prince Charming

Rachel Van Dyken
“Sometimes I wonder if we ever truly let anyone completely in. The desire for another human being to know you, all of you, all the pieces, even the ones you’re ashamed of — is huge. But too often, we sit down and sort through the pieces only picking out the pretty ones, leaving the ugly ones behind, not realizing that choosing not to share with someone else is like committing a crime against our very soul”
Rachel Van Dyken, Toxic

Gary Snyder
“But if you do know what is taught by plants and weather, you are in on the gossip and can feel truly at home. The sum of a field's forces [become] what we call very loosely the 'spirit of the place.' To know the spirit of a place is to realize that you are a part of a part and that the whole is made or parts, each of which in a whole. You start with the part you are whole in.”
Gary Snyder, The Gary Snyder Reader, Volume 1: Prose, Poetry and Translations 1952-1998

Amaka Imani Nkosazana
“Once your soul is awakened, you never return to the sleepwalking state of mind. Some people become complacent in life. They are just going through the motions and not aware of truth. Seek the knowledge, wisdom, and the understandings that vivify your existence.”
Amaka Imani Nkosazana, Heart Crush

Pooja Agnihotri
“Remember, data is not just the street signs, it is the GPS.”
Pooja Agnihotri, 17 Reasons Why Businesses Fail :Unscrew Yourself From Business Failure

Robin Hobb
“We were one thing. A whole thing. You and I and Nighteyes. I felt a strange sort of peace. As if all the parts of me were finally in one place. All the missing bits that would make me a complete... thing.' I shook my head. 'Words don't read that far.”
Robin Hobb, Assassin's Fate

Doris Lessing
“This is because Marxism looks at things as a whole and in relation to each other—or tries to, but its limitations are not the point for the moment. A person who has been influenced by Marxism takes it for granted that an event in Siberia will affect one in Botswana. I think it is possible that Marxism was the first attempt, for our time [written in 1971], outside the formal religions, at a world-mind, a world ethic. It went wrong, could not prevent itself from dividing and subdividing, like all the other religions, into smaller and smaller chapels, sects and creeds. But it was an attempt.”
Doris Lessing

Christina Henry
“I don't belong to you ... You thought if I married you that I would, but I don't. I don't belong to any man ... I only belong to myself. But belonging to myself doesn't mean I don't love you or that I don't want to stand beside you.”
Christina Henry, The Mermaid

David Baldacci
“It would actually constitute more than a miracle, he realised. It would take divine intervention plus luck, plus some unknown element of cosmic wizardry.”
David Baldacci, The Whole Truth

Jay Woodman
“In every atom, there is a reflection of the whole.”
Jay Woodman

Alejandro Mos Riera
“Every unique thing in nature is related to the whole, and partakes of the perfection of the whole. Each particle is a microcosm, and faithfully renders the likeness of the world.

In geometric harmony of the cosmos there are ways that resemble, there are universal patterns, from blood vessels, to winter trees or to a river delta, from nautilus shell to spiral galaxy, from neurons in the brain to the cosmic web.

A whole universe of connections is in your mind – a universe within a universe – and one capable of reaching out to the other that gave rise to it. Billions of neurons touching billions of stars – surely spiritual.”
Alejandro Mos Riera

Sanjo Jendayi
“I AM WELL. I breathe in wellness and wholeness. I exhale all that doesn't serve me. Every breath I take is in gratitude for this very moment.”
Sanjo Jendayi

Elizabeth Moon
“A tree is alive, and thus it is always more than you see. Roots to leaves, yes—those you can, in part, see. But it is more—it is the lichens and moss and ferns that grow on its bark, the life too small to see that lives among its roots, a community we know of, but do not think on. It is every fly and bee and beetle that uses it for shelter or food, every bird that nests in its branches. Every one an individual, and yet every one part of the tree, and the tree part of every one.”
Elizabeth Moon, Oath of Fealty

Gila Nehemia
“Collecting the shards, the pieces shattered long ago with each step
Reminding me, I am whole, sovereign now
Sealing the bond are my footprints laden with stardust”
Gila Nehemia, Surreal Love: Kundalini Awakening Poetry

Peter M. Senge
“Dividing an elephant in half does not produce two small elephants.”
Peter M. Senge, The Fifth Discipline: The Art & Practice of The Learning Organization

“Forgiveness is something that can hold the entire universe together as a Whole.”
Heidi M. Morrison (Heidi Morrison Teachings)

Sanjo Jendayi
“If you don't fight for your body, who will?

If you don't fight to LIVE your life in the best way possible, who will?

If you don't fight to be healthy & whole; mind, body & spirit...what do you really expect to get & give in this life?”
Sanjo Jendayi

Jayita Bhattacharjee
“The paradox is that, we attempt to disown our stories to appear whole and acceptable, but our wholeness is grounded in the acknowledgement of our brokenness. Hanging from the ragged edge, you learn to resurface with what is truly whole.”
Jayita Bhattacharjee

Chris Ernest Nelson
“Creation is perfect. We'd know that if we could see the whole thing.”
Chris Ernest Nelson

Ora Nadrich
“We are longing to become whole, to unite with that something that will connect us to what we are desperately longing for.”
Ora Nadrich, Mindfulness and Mysticism: Connecting Present Moment Awareness with Higher States of Consciousness

“In marriage to get a whole we do not add two better halves; but two whole individuals joined together to make one whole. This too is a mystery!”
Dr. Lucas D. Shallua

Anthony T. Hincks
“We need to look beyond the horizon to see the world as a whole.”
Anthony T. Hincks

“How do you fill the hole? Only by becoming Whole, which means becoming fully individuated, which means fully integrating all the contents of the unconscious, both personal and collective.”
David Sinclair, The War of the Mind: Understanding Inflation and Alienation

“Alone but without I, builds naturally a together which as a whole brings forth something extraordinary.”

Oli Anderson
“We have to get over the fear of being seen in a certain imperfect light if we want to stand any chance of really shining and being real, healed, and whole again.”
Oli Anderson, Shadow Life: Freedom from an Unreal World - Reclaim Your Hidden Self, Practise Unconditional Self-Acceptance, and Live Real

Jayita Bhattacharjee
“To reflect on the moments you lived to the fullest is to reflect with joy for no moment was ever lost as you lived a life not of possibilities but of actualities for you had a love loved, dreams fulfilled and sufferings courageously suffered. So, you lived a life of beauty and the beast yet you lived it whole and that is living in the fullest sense.”
Jayita Bhattacharjee
