Religious Thought 256

He has no desires. He has cast off his chains. He walks on air. He is free, Tumbling like a leaf in the wind, From life to life. He has gone beyond the world, Beyond joy and sorrow. His mind is always cool. He lives as if he had no body.
- Ashtavakra Gita 18:21-22

Without love we could not survive. Human beings are social creatures, and a concern for each other is the very basis of our life together.
- His Holiness the Dalai Lama

“I think that if God forgives us we must forgive ourselves.”

- C.S. Lewis

I seek refuge in Allah from knowledge that brings no wisdom, from a heart that lacks kindness, from desires that bring discontent, and from supplications that go unanswered.
- Hadith The Prophet Muhammad (SAW), as reported by Abu Hurairah

The errors of sages are regarded as willful sins; the sins of the ignorant are accounted as unwitting errors.
- Judah b. Ilai, Talmud: Baba Metzia
