Jiddu Krishnamurti

“It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.”

Albert Einstein

“By an application of the theory of relativity to the taste of readers, to-day in Germany I am called a German man of science, and in England I am represented as a Swiss Jew. If I come to be regarded as a bête noire the descriptions will be reversed, and I shall become a Swiss Jew for the Germans and a German man of science for the English!”

Eknath Easwaran

“Love requires a center within oneself which nothing can shake – a sanctum sanctorum into which we can always retire to renew our strength and security.  That is the purpose of meditation.”

Albert Camus

“I think my life is of great importance, but I also think it is meaningless.”
