"I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in all of us. I believe that what Jesus and Mohammed and Buddha and all the rest said was right. It’s just that the translations have gone wrong."
— John Lennon
"Living in a world such as this is like dancing on a live volcano."
— Kentetsu Takamori
"We are fragmented into so many different aspects. We don´t know who we really are, or what aspects of ourselves we should identify with or believe in. So many contradictory voices, dictates, and feelings fight for control over our inner lives that we find ourselves scattered everywhere, in all directions, leaving nobody at home.
Meditation, then, is bringing the mind home."
— Sogyal Rinpoche, The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying.
"What you are is God’s gift to you, what you become is your gift to God."
— Hans Urs von Balthasar
