- Tirukkural 13:121

Whoever does no wrong in body, speech, heart; is restrained in these three ways: he's what I call a brahmin.
- Dhammapada, 391, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu

“For a small reward, a man will hurry away on a long journey; while for eternal life, many will hardly take a single step.”

- Thomas a Kempis

On the spiritual path no one has higher or lower status than anyone else.
- Nizam al-Din, Fawaid al-Fuad

God is all reality, but not all reality is God.
- Rabbi Moshe Cordovero, "Elima Rabbati"
