The Favorite Quotes section of my profile was getting ridiculously long.

Now I have this medium, so I can transfer and add as many quotes as I want , and won’t feel bad..

“Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the successful people with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground. Let their spirit ignite a fire within you to leave this world better than when you found it.”-Wilfred Peterson

“When I consider this carefully, I find not a single property which with certainty separates the waking state from the dream. How can you be certain that your whole life is not a dream?”-Rene Descartes

“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” -Romans 12:2 NKJV

“What is demanded of man is not, as some existential philosophers teach, to endure the meaninglessness of life, but rather to bear his incapacity to grasp its unconditional meaningfulness in rational terms” (p. 118) –Victor Frankl: Man’s Search for Meaning

“Everything that is really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labor in freedom.”-Albert Einstein

“The willingness to let go of the familiar and undertake a self-transformation that at first looks like death, but is really the path to life, is the courage without which philosophy is impossible.”-Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

“If you are lonely when you’re alone, you are in bad company.” -Jean-Paul Sartre

“Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.”-Buddha

“I will far rather see the race of man extinct than that we should become less than beasts by making the noblest of God’s creation, woman, the object of our lust.”-Gandhi

“I do not feel obligated to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reasons, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.”-Galileo Galilei

“All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree. All these aspirations are directed toward ennobling man’s life, lifting it from the sphere of mere physical existence and leading the individual towards freedom.”-Albert Einstein

“A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest- a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”-Albert Einstein

“Institutions – government, churches, industries, and the like – have properly no other function than to contribute to human freedom; and in so far as they fail, on the whole, to perform this function, they are wrong and need reconstruction.” -C. H. Cooley
