Wonderful Quotes of inspiration from the Wise.




Whether from famous spiritual teachers, the infamous, or from wise ones in our own lives, there is always valuable lessons to learn. I have selected a few of my favourite quotes to ponder, and inspire. I have not added my own interpretations however, as many of them evoke different meanings and reactions to each individual.







“All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become.”


"Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.”


"You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.”


“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”


“You cannot travel the path until you have become the path itself”


“Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.”


“A dog is not considered a good dog because he is a good barker. A man is not considered a good man because he is a good talker.”


“The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart.”

“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.”


“Your work is to discover your work and then with all your heart to give yourself to it.”


“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.”


“There has to be evil so that good can prove its purity above it.”


"It is a man's own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways".

“Faith... Must be enforced by reason...When faith becomes blind it dies.”


“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated”


“They cannot take away our self-respect if we do not give it to them.”


"Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one's weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.”


"I believe in the fundamental Truth of all the great religions of the world. I believe that they are all God given. I came to the conclusion long ago... that all religions were true and also that all had some error in them.”


“When I admire the wonder of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in worship of the Creator”

"If you take the Christian bible and put it out in the wind and the rain, soon the paper on which the words are printed will disintegrate and the words will be gone. Our bible IS the wind and the rain." - Herbalist Carol McGrath as told to her by a Native-American woman


"To believe in God or in a guiding force because someone tells you to is the height of stupidity. We are given senses to receive our information within. With our own eyes we see, and with our own skin we feel. With our intelligence, it is intended that we understand. But each person must puzzle it out for himself or herself". - Sophy Burnham


"Religion is about creation, and for that reason religion should be about the earth. To many people this comes as a surprise because modern religious thinking emphasizes salvation over creation and focuses on heaven and hell rather than earth. But Pagans believed that biological processes are spiritual processes and that there is divine meaning in every natural event". - Laurie Cabot (Power of the Witch, Penguin books 1992)


"Some people claim to have magical powers. I certainly hope they don't consider themselves to be anything special"
"Spell Crafts" by Scott Cunningham and David Harrington


"Time and space are modes by which we think, not conditions in which we live" -  Albert Einstein

"Know that your seeking and yearning will avail you not, unless you know the mystery: for if that which you seek, you find not within yourself, you will never find it without. For behold, I have been with you from the beginning, and I am that which is attained at the end of desire." - Doreen Valiente, The Charge of the Goddess.


"Many spells are nothing more than the transfer of positive and negative energies directed by consciousness. We are simply working with the laws of nature in the most intense and intimate way". - Laurie Cabot, Power of the Witch.


"Mysticism is the basis of all true science, and the person who can no longer stand rapt in awe is as good as dead" - Albert Einstein


'Oh, I see. I am that. I come from that. That is what I am. And that is what everything is." - Elizabeth Gilbert author of "Eat, pray, love" (Explaining the moment of contact with the divine during meditation on the Oprah Winfery Show) 

"I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand". - Confucius

"Ignorance is the night of the mind, but a night without moon and star". - Confucius

"When you know better, you do better" - Maya Angelo


"Mistakes are part of the dues one pays for a full life". - Sophia Loren

"And so faith is closing your eyes and following the breath of your soul down to the bottom of life, where existence and nonexistence have merged into irrelevance. All that matters is the little part you play in the vast drama". - Real Live Preacher

"The ability to transform energy into matter, and vice versa, is the way the universe operates"  - "Power of the Witch"  - Laurie Cabot 1989

"....Cultures that develop around the notion of an authoritarian father god, inevitably oppress those that do not fit the image of the all-powerful, adult human male:  children, women, homosexuals, and the non human communities of animal, plant, and mineral life with which we live and share our planet. In rigid patriarchal thinking these have no value in themselves except as they serve the male dominated institutions". - "Power of the Witch"  - Laurie Cabot 1989

"The power of magick is ancient, and is yin-yang being both the spiritual and the scientific. It is never wise to overlook or dismiss one for the other, nor is it helpful. Understanding only comes in the knowing, and knowledge has more than one source." - Skyladona 2007

" Faith is a way of saying - Yes, I pre-accept the terms of the universe and I embrace in advance what I am presently incapable of understanding" "Eat, pray, love" - Elizabeth Gilbert 2006

"Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair" - Kahlil Gibran.
