Wait for the wisest of all counselors, Time.

Platen

Man values life as a sacred jewel in such a way that he reveres him most who haughtily scorns it.

A patient mind is the best remedy for trouble.

Plotinus

Being is desirable because it is identical with Beauty, and Beauty is loved because it is Being. We ourselves possess Beauty when we are true to our own being; ugliness is in going over to another order; knowing ourselves, we are beautiful; in self-ignorance, we are ugly.

Withdraw into yourself and look. And if you do not fine yourself beautiful yet, act as does the creator of a statue that is to be made beautiful: he cuts away here, he smoothes there, he makes this line lighter, this other purer, until a lovely face has grown his work. So do you also: cut away all that is excessive, straighten all that is crooked, bring light to all that is overcast, labor to make all one glow or beauty and never cease chiseling your statue, until there shall shine out on you from it the godlike splendor of virtue, until you see the perfect goodness surely established in the stainless shrine

God is not external to anyone, but is present with all things, though they are ignorant that he is so.

Do not despise the bottom rungs in the ascent to greatness.

Publius Cornelius Tacitus

In times of tumult and discord bad men have the most power; mental and moral excellence require peace and quiteness.

Patanjali Indian Philospher

In deep meditation the flow of concentration is continuous like the flow of oil.

When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and your discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.
