It is not the end of the physical body that should worry us. Rather, our concern must be to live while we're alive - to release our inner selves from the spiritual death that comes with living behind a facade designed to conform to external definitions of who and what we are.
Wherever you are, be there totally. If you find your here and now intolerable and it makes you unhappy, you have three options: remove yourself from the situation, change it, or accept it totally. If you want to take responsibility for your life, you must choose one of those three options, and you must choose now. Then accept the consequences.
If patience is worth anything, it must endure to the end of time. And a living faith will last in the midst of the blackest storm.
Even when I see a beautiful woman, I think, 'Aw, her life must be amazing.' Everyone does it. That's human nature to believe that beauty is everything.
Marina and the Diamonds
We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.
If we desire respect for the law, we must first make the law respectable.
Louis D. Brandeis
He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying.
Consider a tree for a moment. As beautiful as trees are to look at, we don't see what goes on underground - as they grow roots. Trees must develop deep roots in order to grow strong and produce their beauty. But we don't see the roots. We just see and enjoy the beauty. In much the same way, what goes on inside of us is like the roots of a tree.
I remind myself every morning: Nothing I say this day will teach me anything. So if I'm going to learn, I must do it by listening.
Food for the body is not enough. There must be food for the soul.
Into each life some rain must fall.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Saving our planet, lifting people out of poverty, advancing economic growth... these are one and the same fight. We must connect the dots between climate change, water scarcity, energy shortages, global health, food security and women's empowerment. Solutions to one problem must be solutions for all.
I must govern the clock, not be governed by it.
Democracy must be built through open societies that share information. When there is information, there is enlightenment. When there is debate, there are solutions. When there is no sharing of power, no rule of law, no accountability, there is abuse, corruption, subjugation and indignation.
Times and conditions change so rapidly that we must keep our aim constantly focused on the future.
Life is a journey that must be traveled no matter how bad the roads and accommodations.
Global warming is not a conqueror to kneel before - but a challenge to rise to. A challenge we must rise to.
We are taught you must blame your father, your sisters, your brothers, the school, the teachers - but never blame yourself. It's never your fault. But it's always your fault, because if you wanted to change you're the one who has got to change.
When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.
You must not fight too often with one enemy, or you will teach him all your art of war.
We must free ourselves of the hope that the sea will ever rest. We must learn to sail in high winds.
Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.
It's a fine thing to rise above pride, but you must have pride in order to do so.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
C. S. Lewis
