Nourishment

“Silence is the sleep that nourishes wisdom.”

Manifesting Wisdom

“Raphael paints wisdom, Handel sings it, Phidias carves it, Shakespeare writes it, Wren builds it, Columbus sails it, Luther preaches it, Watt mechanizes it.”

Practice

“Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough…”

Keep It Simple

“Knowledge is a process of piling up facts; wisdom lies in their simplification.”

Present Moment

“The more clearly you understand yourself and your emotions, the more you become a lover of what is.”

New Perspective

“I cannot be awake for nothing looks to me as it did before. Or else I am awake for the first time, and all before has been a mean sleep.”

Letting Go

“We can travel a long way and do many things, but our deepest happiness is not born from accumulating new experiences. It is born from letting go of what is unnecessary, and knowing ourselves to be always at home.”

Strength

“Silence is a source of great strength.”

Lao Tzu (604-533 BC)

Taoist Philosopher

Start Where You Are

Remain Strong

“Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world’s grief. Do justly, now. Love mercy, now. Walk humbly, now.

You are not obligated to complete the work but neither are you free to abandon it.”
