Neglecting valuable advice, an ignorant man becomes the cause of his own misery. That soul who neither follows another's orders nor fathoms what to do himself creates nothing but torment until he leaves this life.- Tirukkural 847-848__._,_.___If you think, I breathe, the I is extra. There is no you to say I. What we call I is just a swinging door which moves when we inhale and when we exhale. It just moves; that is all.

That is the meaning of "light upon light." The light of reason draws toward the earth. The light of God carries you aloft. Things of reason are of the lower world. The light of God is an ocean, reason merely a dewdrop.- Rumi__._,_.___"I arise today Through the strength of the love of cherubim, In obedience of angels, In service of archangels, In the hope of resurrection to meet with reward... ”- The Lorica of St. Patrick__._,_.___A heart without affection is like a purse without money.- Benjamin Mandelstamm, Russian Jewish writer and Hebraist__._,_.___[...]
