" When you crave for help, you must remember that scores of people on the earth need more help than you do. Even the mother-earth needs more help. Help others. Desire for help is selfishness, helping others is selflessness."

" Wake up and realize this is all made up of thoughts, just thoughts. Your appreciation of beauty is a thought; your aversion to an object that is ugly is a thought. Your craving or aversion is nothing but a passing thought in the mind. Realize this is just a thought and you will be free."

" Great people construct monuments with the stones their critics throw at them."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Tawanda M. --- Mozambique
In life you encounter more critics rather than compliments. If you can accept them and use them as stepping-stones to the greatest highs, it helps. And if you do not use them positively, you end up being destroyed spiritually and mentally.

" A mistake is like poured water; once done, is irreparable but you have the ability and power to learn from it and never commit such mistake in the future."
Written in 2012 by Lacy Mojela --- South Africa
I wish to encourage people that they must not feel guilty should they commit mistakes but rather be prepared not to repeat the same mistakes in the future. It is essential that we learn from the wrong doings and make progress out of what we have learned. People must not spend much time focusing on how bad they think they are after making some mistakes, but rather focus on a positive aspect of their life and how they can become generous in the future.

" Between stimulus and response is a space. In this space lies our freedom to choose our response. In these choices lie our growth and our happiness."

" It's not intellectual. You're mostly aware of what you don't like. Henry Moore said something like that. You keep chipping away at what isn't an elephant. And Miles Davis said: 'Don't play what's there, play what's not there' -- I've put it on my wall. We think the conscious is the determining factor, and actually it's the least reliable instrument. The knowing is the infringement. You find what is exposed."

" Just like you learn to speak a language. Just like you learn to punch on the computer. Just like you learn to drive a car or a plane, you have to learn to drive back to the Self. This is the saadhana, this is the practice - it's something that comes to you not just by nature, but by your effort."

" My instruments are designed to celebrate Mother Nature in all her uniquely natural beauty. The stereotype super finishes that remove individuality and reduce everything to a bland similarity are not my style. I search for the rare - the unique piece of wood with character and personality."
