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
“she was completely whole
and yet never fully complete”
Maquita Donyel Irvin, Stories of a Polished Pistil: Lace and Ruffles

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

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

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

“Just take my hand, lead, dance with me...and I will simply follow the blueness of the water, the white waves rolling free...where the earth beneath my feet and stars make my heart whole again...in long and priceless moments of shared solitude...”
Oksana Rus

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.”

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

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

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

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

“There are 3 levels to play the game of life. In 1st level, you identify yourself with a group such as family, friend circle, fan group or a group based on ideology, geography, language etc. At this level, you play against the group which is against your group.

In 2nd level, your identify with a body-mind and play against or with rest of the universe. In 3rd level, you identify yourself as nothing and play with everything as a whole. Nothing and everything are same. So 3rd level is not a play. It's Samadhi.”

“To realize the Supreme Power, either analyze your mind and keep negating all your beliefs until “nothing” remains. Or love the outside world and keep accepting everything and everyone as His reflection. Either reach nothingness or reach everythingness; both are same.”

“When you touch river Ganga in Rishikesh, you also touch the ocean to which the river is connected. Because the distinction between the river and ocean is just in your mind. You also touch the vapours rising from ocean, You touch clouds, rains, earth, mountains, You touch eternity. You touch God.

Remove the distinctions, clean the mind. God is right here, right now.”

Rachel D. Greenwell
“There is a space in your heart that is reserved for your own self’s love”
Rachel D. Greenwell, How To Wear A Crown: A Practical Guide To Knowing Your Worth

Christina Engela
“Humans, on the whole, are intelligent and resourceful and always have been. If our species has been around a million or more years, why are we so disinclined to believe that our ancestors could have built cities 10,000, 20,000, 50,000 or even more years ago?”
Christina Engela, Pearls Before Swine

“The whole universe dances with joy when a baby smiles.”

Collette O'Mahony
“Higher self makes you feel whole, ego makes you feel fragmented.
Higher self makes you feel chosen, ego makes you feel rejected”
Collette O'Mahony, In Quest of Love: A Guide to Inner Harmony and Wellbeing in Relationships

“Time makes the whole world kin.”
Khalid Masood

Donna Goddard
“It is a mistake to think that we need a certain type of relationship to be happy. If we crave a relationship when we are single, we will bring that wanting into any relationship with the consequent problems. To feel that destiny will provide us with what best meets our deepest needs is to be able to enter into any stage of life with confidence and a sense of completeness, not a sense of lack which someone else is supposed to fill.”
Donna Goddard, The Love of Devotion

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“Sometimes it seems that we choose to see the ‘parts’ of our lives as the ‘whole’ of our lives. Parts are far less frightening, for if we were sufficiently daring to piece them together with all the other assorted parts of our life, the ‘whole’ of them might become bigger than the ‘whole’ of us.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough, The Eighth Page: A Christmas Journey

“The idea that there is something necessarily wrong with circular logic is itself a logical fallacy. If there is nothing wrong with the starting premises then the conclusions are necessarily correct too. In fact, only circular logic can be correct. Only such logic can offer total holistic coherence and analytic closure, i.e. perfect tautology – provided it is the correct circular logic, which means it must have the correct starting premise: the PSR itself.”
Thomas Stark, Tractatus Logico-Mathematicus: How Mathematics Explains Reality

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“Will we choose to be the ‘pieces’ that our sin has blown us into? Or will we turn to the God who can pick up each one and gently assemble them into the ‘whole’ that we’ve never known simply because it’s a ‘whole’ that He has never forgotten?”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

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

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.”
