    Or Kabir...



    Inside this clay jug there are
    canyons and pine mountains.
    And the maker of canyons
    and pine mountains.
    And seven oceans are inside,
    and hundreds of millions of stars.
    ~ Kabir
    A million galaxies are a little foam on that shoreless sea. ~ Rumi

    So many great quotes here, thanks. I have quite a few I want to add...

    "Nature, to be commanded, must first be obeyed."
    - Francis Bacon

    "The liberty of man consists solely in this, that he obeys the Laws of Nature, because he has himself recognized them as such, and not because they have been imposed upon him externally by any foreign will whatsoever."
    - Mikhail Bakunin

    "The best way to learn the secrets of nature is not by inventing instruments, but by improving the investigator himself."
    - Max Heindel

    "Heed these words, You who wish to probe the depths of nature: If you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither will you find it outside. If you ignore the wonders of your own House, how do you expect to find other wonders? In you is hidden the Treasure of Treasures. Know Thyself and you will know the Universe and the Gods."
    - Delphi Oracle

    "The truth is paradoxical to the extent of being exactly contrary to the usual perception."
    - Georges Bataille

    "Truth can never be told so as to be understood, and not be believed."
    - William Blake

    "It is a great mystery that, though the human heart longs for truth, in which it alone finds liberation and delight, the first reaction of human beings to truth is one of hostility and fear."
    - Anthony de Mello

    "There are only two mistakes one can make on the path to truth: Not starting and not going all the way."
    - Buddha, on the extreme nature of truth

    "As its foundation, any guide to freedom needs a thorough knowledge of why and how that freedom has been removed in the first place. Without that, there can be no answers."
    - David Icke

    "Accept responsibility for yourself and your actions, thoughts and words. You alone make choices. You alone are answerable to the consequences of your behavior. The feeble excuse that your boss required it, the establishment expected it, holds no truth of justification."
    - David Icke

    "What is the point of having principles if you allow others to dictate your behavior? At the end of the day, you will judge your performance and the contribution you have made to Creation. It will not be based on what another expected of you, or what you did because you felt trapped."
    - David Icke

    "Men will never be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest."
    - Denis Diderot, French philosopher

    "No problem can be solved by the same level of consciousness that created it."
    - Albert Einstein

    "They must find it difficult... those who have taken authority as truth, rather than truth as authority."
    - Gerald Massey

    "I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish church, by the Roman church, by the Greek church, by the Turkish church, by the Protestant church, nor by any church that I know of. My own mind if my own church. All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit."
    - Thomas Paine

    "What is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them."
    - George Mason, Co-author of the Second Amendment

    "Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."
    - Benjamin Franklin

    "If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be."
    - Thomas Jefferson

    "If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny."
    - Thomas Jefferson

    "Banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency... the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people f all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers occupied."
    - Thomas Jefferson

    "There's a plot in this country to enslave every man, woman and child. Before I leave this high and noble office, I intend to expose this plot."
    - President John F. Kennedy, 7 days before his assassination

    "Behind the ostensible governments sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people."
    - Theodore Roosevelt

    "The individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists. The American mind simply has not come to a realization of the evil which has been introduced into our midst. It rejects even the assumption that human creatures could espouse a philosophy which must ultimately destroy all that is good and decent."
    - J. Edgar Hoover

    "Military men are just dumb, stupid animals, to be used as pawns in foreign policy."
    - Henry Kissinger

    The media is the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that's power. Because they control the minds of the masses.
    - Malcom X

    "If the words "life, liberty and happiness" don't include the right to experiment with your own consciousness, then the Declaration of Independence isn't worth the hemp it was written on."
    - Terence McKenna

    "You assist an evil system most effectively by obeying its orders and decrees. An evil system never deserves such allegiance. Allegiance to it means partaking of the evil. A good person will resist an evil system with his or her whole soul."
    - Mahatma Gandhi

    "A society whose citizens refuse to see and investigate the facts, who refuse to believe that their government and their media will routinely lie to them and fabricate a reality contrary to verifiable facts, is a society that chooses and deserves the police state dictatorship it is going to get."
    - Ian Williams Goddard

    "The bigger the lie, the more it will be believed."
    - Paul Joseph Goebbels

    "Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."
    - Hermann Goering

    "Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food."
    - Hippocrates

    - Plato

    "Human sickness is so severe that few can bear to look at it. But those that do will become well."
    - Vernon Howard

    "A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced because they love their servitude."

    - John Lennon

    Here is a quote that describes me,how about you my friends?

    "Fortunately,some are born with spiritual immune systems that sooner or later give rejection to illusory worldview grafted upon them from birth through social
    conditioning.They begin sensing that something is amiss and start looking for answers.Inner knowledge and anomalous outer experiences show them a side
    of reality others are oblivious to,and so begins their journey of awakening.Each step of the journey is made by following the heart instead of following the crowd
    and by choosing the knowledge over the veils of ignorance."

    Henri-Louis Bergson

    Another marvellous one from Hafiz:

    Quote My dear,
    Is it true that your mind is sometimes like a battering
    Ram

    Running all through the city,
    Shouting so madly inside and out

    About the ten thousand things
    That do not matter?
    *I have loved the stars too dearly to be fearful of the night*

    Not sure where I found this, perhaps a book...

    “Choose Love rather than Hope. Because the expression of Hope can be quite static. The expression of Love is creative and moving; it promotes change. Hope tends to look outside for help and waits; Love looks within and finds the power of Self.”

    Writer Charles Bukowski

    “Find what you love and let it kill you.”

    “How the hell could a person enjoy being awakened at 6:30AM, by an alarm clock, leap out of bed, dress, force-feed, ****, piss, brush teeth and hair, and fight traffic to get to a place where essentially you made lots of money for somebody else and were asked to be grateful for the opportunity to do so?”

    “We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that death will tremble to take us.”

    “If I stop writing I am dead. And that’s the only way I’ll stop: dead.”

    “If you want to know who your friends are, get yourself a jail sentence.”

    “Some people never go crazy, What truly horrible lives they must live.”

    “If you’re losing your soul and you know it, then you’ve still got a soul left to lose.”

    “People are strange: they are constantly angered by trivial things, but on a major matter like totally wasting their lives, they hardly seem to notice.”

    “Almost everybody is born a genius and buried an idiot.”

    “Bad taste creates many more millionaires than good taste.”

    “Sex is kicking death in the ass while singing.”
