Here are the inspirational daily quotes for October 2007. We hope you enjoy them!
Be a lamp, or a lifeboat, or a ladder. Help someone’s soul heal. Walk
out of your house like a shepherd.
Care less for your harvest than for how it is shared and your life will have meaning and your heart will have peace.
There is as much wisdom in soliciting good counsel as in giving it. The most sensible people are not reluctant to consider the feelings of other people; and to know how to submit to the wise guidance of others is a kind of wisdom in itself.
One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.
World peace will never be stable until enough of us find inner peace to stabilize it.
Dignity does not consist in possessing honors, but in deserving them.
Autumn burned brightly, a running flame through the mountains, a torch flung to the trees.
Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree.
Now Autumn’s fire burns slowly along the woods
And day by day the dead leaves fall and melt.
For light I go directly to the source of light, not to any of the reflections.
Though my soul may set in darkness,
It will rise in perfect light.
I have loved the stars too fondly
To be fearful of the night.
Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue.
All created things are alive, conscious, and want to communicate. The Creator has endowed all creatures with wisdom and joy, and they are eager to share with us their ways of being in the world. In time we learn to recognize them as our companions.
Hold on to what is good even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe even if it is a tree which stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do even if it is a long way from here.
Hold on to life even when it is easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand even when I have gone away from you.
