Inspirational sayings and thoughts by great thinkers:

May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds. Edward Abbey

Itís almost not necessary for us to do good; Itís only necessary for us to stop doing evil, for goodness sake. Isaac Asimov

The public good is whatís good for us as a whole, not just whatís good for one or another individual. Robert Bellah

My objection to fundamentalism is not that they are fundamentalists but that essentially they want me to be a fundamentalist, too. Isaac Asmov

We have put on the courts of this country an intolerable burden of deciding philosophical and moral issues. Peter Berger

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. The Golden Rule exists in every culture. Confucius speaks of it. Buddhists speak of it. The Bhagavad-Gita speaks of it, and of course the Bible speaks of it. So itís not al all anything new. Sissela Bok

We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thought. With out thoughts, we make our world. Buddha

To find the universal elements enough, to find the air and the water exhilarating, to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunterÖto be thrilled by the stars at night, to be elated over a birdís nest or a wildflower in spring-these are some of the rewards of the simple life. John Borroughs

If you learn to do something better than someone else, youíll make your way in the world. Booker T. Washington

For others to approve me is easy; for me to approve myself is hard. Yuan-Cheng

If we knew that tonight we were going to go blind, we would take a long, last real look at every blade of grass, every cloud formation, every speck of dust, every rainbow, raindrop-everything Pema Chodron

Öcommon sense is still always going to be subject to the sense of the individual. F. Forrester Church

When we close a book (after reading it), it will give us an enlarge understanding of people we donít usually think of looking at. So fiction really enlarges our humanity. E.L. Doctorow

A Zen masterís life is one continuous mistake. Dogen

Charisma is almost always misleadership, partly because it covers up the lack of substance, partly because it creates arrogance, and partly because it creates paranoia if youíre not successful. Peter Drucker

Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities crept in. Forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you should begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. Ralph Waldo Emerson

We have grown technologically, but we havenít progressed as far spiritually. Louise Erdich

The quest for certainty blocks the search for meaning. Uncertainty is the very condition to impel man to unfold his powers. Erich Fomm

Weíve got to get out of this idea of the eighty or ninety hour work week as the mark of a successful person. Willard Gaylen

In one days edition of the New York Times there is more information than a single man or woman had to process in the whole of his or her life in the sixteen century. Now, thatís intimidating. Vartan Gregorian

The corruption Iím talking about is based on a self-righteous notion of the need to win, or our having the right to have what we want, rather than just having the right to have an even playing field. Many politicians, for example, treat getting reelected as if it were a moral imperative. Once you accept that, you will sacrifice other moral values. Michael Josephson

Our rights orientation has led to a kind of legal minimalism-as long as itís legal, itís ethical. Michael Josephson

All know that the drop merges into the ocean, but few know that the ocean merges into the drop. Kabir

Itís a Western prejudice to think that chopsticks are rather primitive-but one Chinese remarked that the Western man eats with swords. The Chinese do all their cutting away from the table, so that there is no evidence at the table of the kind of violence thatís necessarily involved in the capturing and preparation of food. Leon R. Kass

Life is what happens while youíre busy making other plans. John Lennon

I wish none of this had happened. So do all that live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. Lord of the Rings

You may not always win the race but never stop racing. Thomas McFall

A lot of crimes have been committed in the name of morality. Bill Moyer

Life shrinks or expands according to oneís courage. Anais Nin

Whatever we once were, we are no longer just a Christian nation; we are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers. Barrack Obama

If all you got to say is something negative about the other guy then you are not helping solve our countryís problems. Barack Obama

We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light. Plato

ďDid you have a happy childhood? ď, is a false question. As a child, I did not know what happiness was and whether I was happy or not. I was too busy being. Alstair Read

It is not the critic who counts. Not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and come up short again and againÖwho spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. Theodore Roosevelt

The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well. Ralph Waldo Emerson

Itís like the Wizard of Oz. We are looking for a Wizard seeking a heart, a brain, courage and the Wizard says you already have these things. All you need to do is to use it. When you believe in your great indomitable self, then all things are possible. Marva Collings

Experience is a hard teacher. She gives the test first, the lesson afterwards. Dick Enberg

I am a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it. Thomas Jefferson

Disagreement is refreshing when two men lovingly desire to compare their views to find out truth. Controversy is wretched when it is only an attempt to prove another wrong. Frederick William Robertson

Fellow citizens, you may have read of some horrible things that have been said about me, the calumnies and lies, and I could answer these, but it becomes my dignity just to pay no attention to them. George Washington, draft of farewell speech

Everyone wishes to have truth on his side, but not everyone wishes to be on the side of truth. Richard Whately

One has only the right to be oneself-within the boundaries of respect for others. There is a boundary between you and others. Thatís why we have etiquette. The reason etiquette was developed in the first place was to maintain individual freedom. Anne Wortham

A civilized society is one whose members expect that each will address at times, as far as possible, the rational in man; that even when I may want to bash you over the head, I will be checked by my awareness of you as a rational entity, and I will not resort to force as an expression of my disagreement with you or even my feeling that you have been unjust to me, that in my disagreements with you, I will rely on the power of persuasion. Anne Wortham
