“ It is all right if the world thinks you are weird. Everyone is different, so everyone is weird in someone's eyes. Happily weird or miserably weird - your choice ”
To live and operate in the world, you may have to identify with something. Play with your identifications - don't let them rule you.
The world is big enough to satisfy everyones needs, but will always be too small to satisfy everyones greed
A rat race is for rats. As a human being, you can consciously create what you want, without being driven by social compulsions
If one has to be in this world, transact with this world, be involved with this world, and still go untouched through this world, one must be like a lotus flower. One must learn how to convert the filth into a fragrant flower
Do you want to rule the world or do you want to serve the world? Ultimately, that is the choice.
Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in a while, or the light won't come in.
