Knowledge or ignorance, Freedom or bondage, What are they? What is "I," Or "mine," Or "this"? Or the form of the true Self? I am always one. What do I care for freedom In life or in death, Or for my present karma?
- Ashtavakra Gita 20:3-4
All the wealth you've acquired from beginningless time until now has failed to fulfill all your desires. Cultivate therefore this wish-granting gem of moderation, O fortunate ones.
- Milarepa, "Drinking the Mountain Stream"
Beware! Do not let avarice waylay you! Do not let greed tear you up by the roots! For as you sleep, the stench of your spurious deeds is thundering on the azure sky.
When the eyes of the soul looking out meet the eyes of God looking in, heaven has begun right here on this earth.
- A.W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God
Meekness of spirit is the halo of the wise.
- Joseph Kimhi, Daily Prayer Book
