THREE QUOTES ON MEDITATION
“Reading makes a full man, meditation a profound man, discourse a clear man.”
Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)
“Meditation here may think down hours to moments. Here the heart may give a useful lesson to the head and learning wiser grow without his books.” – William Cowper (English Poet 1731-1800)
“What is this true meditation? It is to make everything: coughing, swallowing, waving the arms, motion, stillness, words, action, the evil and the good, prosperity and shame, gain and loss, right and wrong, into one single koan” – Hakuin – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hakuin
“Conversation teaches more than meditation”
Good company turns a meal into a feast.
YOU WILL SAY CHRIST SAITH THIS, AND THE APOSTLES SAY THIS,
BUT WHAT CANST THOU SAY?
ART THOU A CHILD OF LIGHT AND HAST THOU WALKED IN THE LIGHT,
AND WHAT THOU SPEAKEST IS IT INWARDLY FROM GOD?
MARGARET FELL, QUOTING FROM HER FIRST ENCOUNTER WITH GEORGE FOX
“The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it.”
