"For it is a fire that, kindling its first embers in the narrow nook of a
private bosom, caught from a wandering spark out of another private heart, glows and enlarges until it warms and beams upon multitudes of men and women, upon the universal heart of all, and so lights up the whole world and all nature with its generous flames."

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

" Do not try to satisfy your vanity by teaching a great many things. Just awaken people's curiosity. It is enough to open minds; do not overload them. Put there just a spark. If there is some good flammable stuff, it will catch fire."

Belief causes problems, it reduces your flexibility, but it's a spiritual skeleton - difficult to move without one.

Dalai Lama on affection

Post by Guest » Thu Sep 18, 2003 10:18 pm

"You have to understand that the affection I'm speaking of has no purpose, it's not given with the intention of getting anything back. It's not a matter of feeling. In the same way we say that real compassion is without attachment. Pay attention to this point, which goes against our habitual ways of thinking. It's not this or that particular case that stirs our pity. We don't give our compassion to such and such a person by choice. We give it spontaneously, entirely, without hoping for anything in exchange. And we give it universally. "
The Dalai Lama

"Ah it has always been a matter of regret to me that I have never suceeded in cutting a man in two. I very nearly did once. I was alone in the desert and I saw that I was being pursued by three men; my horse was tired and they were gaining up me. As the leading man came up with me I drew my sword and dealt him a furious blow on the shoulder, cutting him slantwise right down to the waist; unfortunately I did not cut through the last bit of skin, so the horse galloped off with half the man's body hanging over the saddle."

"It is a rule of evidence deduced from the experience of mankind and supported by reason and authority that positive testimony is entitled to more weight than negative testimony but by the latter term is meant negative testimony in it's true sense and not positive evidence of a negative, because testimony in support of a negative may be as positive as that in support of an affirmative."
