"Wisdom before weapons."
"Heaven endures and the Earth lasts a long time because
they do not live for themselves therefore she who would live a long time should live for others."
conquer others is to have power, but to conquer ourselves is to know the way."
"Knowing the way is like being a child crying and laughing
all day without being hoarse. Small people hate lonliness but the master makes it her home, her source, her mother, for she
knows it allows her to be one with the universe. The master knows no expectations, therefore no disappointment and thus she
stays young forever."
"The entire world is driven by a will blind and ruthless. In order to transcend
the limitations of this world you have to stop willing, stop desiring, stop hating."
"Fill yourself with desire and see only illusion, empty yourself of desire and
understand the great mystery of things."
"Fear is a weapon of the wicked, but a tool of the righteous. End the war between
the mind and the heart. Peace must be found within before it can be actualized."
"Your truth is in your heart when you find it,
you will find the strength to live your life for yourself."

"Speak True, Be Strong, Spread The Peace"
"Come listen close and I'll try to let you know it's all
I know there is no magic there are no secrets we all begin this race at the start but I have come this far with a truth
of the heart deep down inside I think we're all the same try not to judge someone and never shame I do believe that people
are good they just want hope and respect and to be understood. Sometimes it's hard sometimes it's strange but the truth if
the heart is people can change."
"They're sending soldiers to distant places X's and O's
on someone's drawing board. Like green and plastic but with human faces. And they want to tell you it's a merciful sword.
But with all the blood newly dried in the desert can we not fertilize the land with something else. There is no nation by
God exempted lay down your weapons and love your neighbor as yourself."
- Emily Saliers - (Indigo Girls)
"There are a lot of folks who can't understand how we
came to have an oil
shortage here in the USA. Well, there's a very simple answer: Nobody bothered to check the oil. We
just didn't know that we were getting low. The reason for this is purely geographical...... All the oil is in Oklahoma, Texas,
Louisiana, Wyoming, New Mexico, Alaska, etc. All the dipsticks are in Washington, DC."
