Vast Quotations

Calvin Coolidge

We sail within a vast sphere, ever drifting in uncertainty, driven from end to end.
Blaise Pascal

Arthur Schopenhauer

Sri Aurobindo

Always keep your mind as bright and clear as the vast sky, the great ocean, and the highest peak, empty of all thoughts. Always keep your body filled with light and heat. Fill yourself with the power of wisdom and enlightenment.
Morihei Ueshiba
