Religious Thought 237

They are completely fulfilled by spiritual wisdom and Self-realization. Having conquered their senses, they have climbed to the summit of human consciousness. To such people a clod of dirt, a stone, and gold are the same. They are equally disposed to family, enemies, and friends, to those who support them and those who are hostile, to the good and the evil alike. Because they are impartial, they rise to great heights.
- Bhagavad Gita 6:8-9

When we demand the rights and freedoms we so cherish, we should also be aware of our responsibilities. If we accept that the others have an equal right to peace and happiness as ourselves, do we not have a responsibility to help those in need?
- His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Since the dawn of human consciousness, religion has been the mightiest force driving humankind toward an unknown goal. It has allowed the teeming millions to experience a greater joy and a creative fervor; it has furnished them with the strength and the courage to achieve imperishable cultural feats and enabled them to reach unimaginable spiritual heights.
- Muhammad Asad Loepold Weiss, "Islamic Sufism"

“Those who try to hang on when God is trying to move on will always be miserable. ”

- Joyce Meyer

A man cannot say to the Angel of Death, "Wait till I make up my accounts."
- Ecclesiastes Rabbah 8
