There are no "good " or "bad " people. Some are a little better or a little worse, but all are activated more by misunderstanding than malice.

-Tennessee Williams

Q: Are there not good desires and bad, high desires and low?

A: All desires are bad, but some are worse than others. Pursue any desire, it will always give you trouble.

Why desire at all? Desiring a state of freedom from desire will not set you free. Nothing can set you free, because you are free. See yourself with desireless clarity, that is all.

- Nisargadatta Maharaj, from I Am That - Talks with Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, posted to AlongTheWay

Those who are awake live in a state of constant amazement.

When it's over, I want to say: all my life I was a bride married to amazement. I was a bridegroom, taking the world into my arms.

- Mary Oliver

Today means boundless and inexhaustible eternity. Periods of months and years and of time in general are ideas of men, who calculate by number; but the true name of eternity is Today.

- Philo

Life is this simple: We are living in a world that is absolutely transparent and the Divine is shining through it all the time. This is not just a nice story or a fable. It is true.

- Thomas Merton

After all, if I can't be myself, who can?

- Auntie Mame
