Beautiful Thoughts

Over the past few months, I have come across several thoughts and words of wisdom that have touched me in a beautiful yet terrifying way. Here are a few of them....

"A truly merciful person is not one that deliberately gives away superfluous things, but one who forgives those who deprive him of what he needs."

"The first accusations I take to myself, for that is good for my soul."

"For what good is it if we abstain from birds and fishes, but bite and devour our brothers?"

"The desire for possessions is dangerous and terrible, knowing no satiety; it drives the soul which it controls to the heights of evil. Therefore, let us drive it away vigorously from the beginning. For once it has become master it cannot be overcome."

"The lover of silence draws close to God. He talks to Him in secret and God enlightens him."

"Love is precisely the deepest thirst for the truth, the very voice of being."

"Woman sees an absolute, priceless value in the human form, and through this she humanizes and personalizes the world. Instinctively, she will always uphold the primacy of being over theory, of the operative over the speculative, of the intuitive over the discursive."
