I don’t live in either my past or my future. I’m interested only in the present. If you can concentrate always on the present, you’ll be a happy man. You’ll see that there is life in the desert, that there are stars in the heavens, and that tribesmen fight because they are part of the human race. Life will be a party for you, a grand festival, because life is the moment we’re living right now.
Why is Love more important than Faith? Because Faith is merely the road that leads us to the Greater Love.
We always know which is the best road to follow, but we follow only the road that we have become accustomed to.
The mirror reflects perfectly; it makes no mistakes because it doesn’t think. To think is to make mistakes.
Talent is a universal gift, but it takes a lot of courage to use it. Don’t be afraid to be the best.
Sin was not created by God; it was created by us when we tried to transform what was inevitable into something subjective. We ceased to see the whole and came to see just one part; and that part is loaded with guilt, rules, good versus evil, and each side thinking it’s right.
No one loses anyone, because no one owns anyone. That is the true experience of freedom: having the most important thing in the world without owning it.
It is part of human nature always to judge others very severely and, when the wind turns against us, always to find an excuse for our own misdeeds, or to blame someone else for our mistakes.
