"Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century:
Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others;
Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected;
Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it;
Refusing to set aside trivial preferences;
Neglecting development and refinement of the mind;
Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do."
— Cicero, 106 BC - 43 BC (via lazyyogi)
"All things are interrelated and interdependent; nothing exists in isolation. The entire universe is one ecosystem, similar to a spider web — if one part is touched, the entire net shimmers. As a result of interrelatedness and interdependency, every expression of energy, including our thoughts and intentions, ultimately touches and affects everything else."
"Why is it that people do not know this deep truth? Because as soon as they are born they are led to believe that the world around them is ‘real.’ They forget their oneness with Divinity and fall into a pattern of likes and dislikes that gives rise to all sorts of desires, attachments, and aversions."
— Krishna (Bhagavad Gita)

"Love doesn’t need reason. It speaks from the irrational wisdom of the heart."
— Deepak Chopra, The Path to Love (via simply-quotes)
"The naked female body is treated so weirdly in society. It’s like people are constantly begging to see it, but once they do, someone’s a hoe."
— Lena Horne (via sexual-feelings)
