To speak so listeners long to hear more and to listen So others' meaning is grasped are the ideals of the impeccably great.
- Tirukkural 65:646

Where there is dependence, there is instability, where there is no dependence, there is no instability, where there is no instability, there is quietude, where there is quietude, there is no desire, where there is no desire, there is no coming and going, where there is no coming or going, there is no birth and death, where there is no birth or death, there is neither this world nor that world, nor both: that is the end of sorrow.
- Udana

Patience comes in three stages: first, one learns not to follow the baser self; second, one learns to content oneself with one's fate; finally, one surrenders oneself to the Master's will and discovers within love and compassion, the greatest of all achievements.
- Al-Ghazzali, "Ibya Ulum Id-Din"

“The Bible to me is a blueprint of how to live your life and a blueprint of how to treat others and seek that connection to that higher being. ”

- Blair Underwood

A man without comrades is like the left without the right.
