Wisdom: Thoughts From the Indian Masters (4)

"Those who are focused on the objects of the senses, become attached to those objects. From attachment comes desire, and from desire comes anger, from anger comes confusion of mind, from confusion of mind comes loss of memory; from loss of memory comes loss of intelligence, and from loss of intelligence comes destruction."

The Bhagavad Gita

"To expect something is to look for something pleasant. Searching for the pleasurable is a form of denial. You cannot expect anything, because the expectation is within you, and what you are waiting for is dependent on external forces."

Svami Prajnanpad

"One person is not another person. What is he, then? He is unique."

Svami Prajnanpad

"We do not progress from error to truth, but from truth to truth. Thus we must see that none can be blamed for what they are doing, because they are, at this time, doing the best they can. We learn only from experience."

Swami Vivekananda
