quote

You will have peace to the extent that you have God, and the further you are away from God the less you will be at peace…
Thus you may measure your progress with God by measuring your peace or the lack of it.

– Meister Eckhart

quote

Without desire everything is sufficient.
With seeking myriad things are impoverished.
Plain vegetables can soothe hunger.
A patched robe is enough to cover this bent old body.
Alone I hike with a deer.
Cheerfully I sing with village children.
The stream under the cliff cleanses my ears.
The pine on the mountain top fits my heart.

– Ryokan

quote

We can walk through the darkest night
with the radiant conviction
that all things work together for the good.

– Martin Luther King Jr.

quote

If my heart can become pure and simple like that of a child, I think there probably can be no greater happiness than this.

G.K, Chesterton Quote

quote

If you let go a little
you will have a little happiness.
If you let go a lot
you will have a lot of happiness.
If you let go completely
you will be free.

Ajahn Chah

quote

The greatest happiness you can have is knowing that you do not necessarily require happiness.

William Saroyan

If thou wilt make a man happy, add not unto his riches but take away from his desires.

Epicurus

“My former master taught me to accept birth and death.”
“Then what have you come to me for?” asked the master.
“To learn to accept what lies in between.”

Anthony de Mello

That is happiness: To be dissolved into something complete and great.

Willa Cather
