 Buddha
The greatest gift is to give people your enlightenment, to share it. It has to be the greatest.
Buddha
#Enlightenment

The moment of truth, the sudden emergence of a new insight, is an act of intuition. Such intuitions give the appearance of miraculous flushes, or short-circuits of reasoning. In fact they may be likened to an immersed chain, of which only the beginning and the end are visible above the surface of consciousness. The diver vanishes at one end of the chain and comes up at the other end, guided by invisible links.
Arthur Koestler
#Enlightenment

A man whose mind feels that it is captive would prefer to blind himself to the fact. But if he hates falsehood, he will not do so; and in that case he will have to suffer a lot. He will beat his head against the wall until he faints. He will come to again
Simone Weil

 Buddha
Do not speak thus, Subhuti ! Yes, even then there will be of beings who, when these words of the sutra are being taught, will understand their truth. For even at that time, Subhuti, there will be Bodhisattvas. And these Bodhisattvas, Subhuti, will not

Because lyrical poetry was still relatively new; it only first emerged with Klopstock, or, if you will, you might go back to Gryphius. This was a completely new mode of expression. It emerged, at the very latest, during the Enlightenment.

Dag Hammarskjold
I don't know Who -- or what -- put the question, I don't know when it was put. I don't even remember answering. But at some moment I did answer Yes to Someone --or Something --and from that hour I was certain that existence is meaningful and that, therefore, my life, in self-surrender, had a goal.
Dag Hammarskjold

Victor Hugo
In this world, which is so plainly the antechamber of another, there are no happy men. The true division of humanity is between those who live in light and those who live in darkness. Our aim must be to diminish the number of the latter and increase the number of the former. That is why we demand education and knowledge.
Victor Hugo

Henry David Thoreau
The light which puts out our eyes is darkness to us. Only that day dawns to which we are awake. There is more day to dawn. The sun is but a morning star.

<a href="/quote/2223041">"The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help you are freed."</a> <a href="/quotes/author//Buddha">Buddha</a> should know. Born into the lap of luxury as a member of the royal family in India, Buddha left his posh existence and everything he had come to know at the age of 29 to search for the true meaning of life. Seeking and finally attaining Enlightenment in Gaya under the Bodhi tree, Buddha spent the balance of his life traveling the countryside, preaching so that others could follow the same path, one that uncovers the true nature and essence of life. For more than 45 years <a href="/quotes/author//Buddha">Buddha</a> traveled the far reaches of the Gangetic Plain in what is now southern Nepal, Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, teaching anyone who he came across, from the nobles to the outcasts and street dwellers. In contrast to the caste system in place with Hinduism, Buddha's teachings had no hierarchy - all were equal and all could achieve Enlightenment through meditation, reflection and other techniques. Buddhism is the fourth largest religion today, with more than 376 million followers worldwide, including such luminaries as <a href="/quotes/author/Richard/Gere">Richard Gere</a>, <a href="/quotes/author/Steven/Seagal">Steven Seagal</a>, <a href="/quotes/author/Kate/Bosworth">Kate Bosworth</a>, <a href="/quotes/author/Tina/Turner">Tina Turner</a>, <a href="/quotes/author/Steve/Jobs">Steve Jobs</a>, <a href="/quotes/author/Orlando/Bloom">Orlando Bloom</a> and the <a href="Dali Lama">Dali Lama</a>. The followers of Buddhism do not worship any God and follow the noble eightfold path to a meaningful existence: Right View, Right Intention, Right Speech, Right Action, Right Livelihood, Right Effort, Right Mindfulness and Right Concentration. Right View and Right Intention are the path of wisdom. Right Speech, Rich Action and Right Livelihood form the path of ethical conduct. Right Effort, Right Mindfulness and Right Concentration are the mental path that helps followers cut through delusion and attain Enlightenment.
