#1. I find peace anywhere I go. It depends on what is within the walls of my own home. - Author: Brooke Burke
What Is Within quotes by Brooke Burke
#2. The saying signifies first and foremost that no exoteric teaching is capable of providing true knowledge, which man must find only within himself, for in fact no knowledge can be acquired except through a personal comprehension. Without this comprehension, no teaching can lead to an
effective result, and the teaching that awakens no personal resonance in the one who receives it cannot give any kind of knowledge. This is why Plato says that 'everything that a man learns is already within him'. All the experiences, all the external things that surround him, are only an occasion to help him become aware of what is within himself. This awakening he calls
anamnesis
, which signifies 'recollection'. - Author: Rene Guenon
What Is Within quotes by Rene Guenon
#3. Look me in the eye. It's ok if you're scared. So am I. But we are scared for different reasons. I am scared of what I won't become. And you are scared of what I could become. Look at me. I won't let myself end where I started. I won't let myself finish where I began. I know what is within me, even if you can't see it yet. Look me in the eyes. I have something more important than courage. I have patience. I will become what I know I am. - Author: Michael Jordan
What Is Within quotes by Michael Jordan
#4. What matters most is not what is behind us or before us, but what is within us. - Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
What Is Within quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#5. It is not by way of language that I shall transmit what is within me; for it is inexpressible in words. I can but signify this insofar as you may understand it through other channels than the spoken word; by love's miracle or because, born of the same God, we are akin. Else I have to drag it out, laboriously
that sunken world within me. And thus, as my clumsiness avails, I display this or that aspect alone
as in the case of my mountain, of which I may say merely that it is high. But it is far more than that, and behind those weak words I have in mind the far-flung glory of the night when one stands on the heights, alone and shivering, amongst the stars. - Author: Antoine De Saint Exupery
What Is Within quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#6. You imagine that you worship truth. Yet by yourself you cannot be truthful even for an hour. You move within me, like a fish in the sea, and still you can't discover me...Look in the blade of your knife.

In the whole of time, I've blinked but once. I am those eyes that gaze at you without ceasing, even if I am not before you. I read what is within you -- know you better than your closest friend. Before my gaze your heart lies open; from me no thought is hidden. You wonder what I see. Like a child, you imagined you could hide. I bring you to the light. I cause you to stand alone. - Author: Terrence Malick
What Is Within quotes by Terrence Malick
#7. What surrounds us is what is within us. - Author: T.F. Hodge
What Is Within quotes by T.F. Hodge
#8. The first movements of the fetus produce this sense of the splitting subject; the fetus's movements are wholly mine, completely within me, condition my experience and space. Only I have access to these movements from their origin, as it were. For months only I can witness this life within me, and it is only under my direction of where to put their hands that others can feel these movements. I have a privileged relation to this other life, not unlike that which I have to my dreams and thoughts, which I can tell someone but which cannot be an object for both of us in the same way... Pregnancy challenges the integration of my body experience by rendering fluid the boundary between what is within, myself, and what is outside, separate. I experience my insides as the space of another, yet my own body. - Author: Iris Marion Young
What Is Within quotes by Iris Marion Young
#9. The life you have built around you is a reflection of what is within you. If you don't like what you see, go inside. - Author: L.J. Vanier
What Is Within quotes by L.J. Vanier
#10. Just go along with things and let your mind move freely. Resign yourself to what cannot be avoided and nourish what is within you - this is best. What more do you have to do to fulfill your mission? Nothing is as good as following orders (obeying fate) - that's how difficult it is! - Author: Burton Watson
What Is Within quotes by Burton Watson
#11. I enjoy traveling and playing baseball.Other than that, the minor leagues are tough. The wear and tear on your body.. and it's tough to stay on a nutrition program because you can only eat what is within walking distance of the hotel and what the clubhouse provides. - Author: Tyler Thornburg
What Is Within quotes by Tyler Thornburg
#12. something must go within to bring what is within out. Oh yes! You need something within to bring what is within out! - Author: Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
What Is Within quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#13. One thing that creates difference between pilgrims of life as they journey along the various paths of life is their head. It makes some fall, others rest and some pursue to the farther.
The reason for the difference is not the size, shape, hair color or the style of their head but what is within their head, what fills their mind, what enters their ears; what their eyes look and see, what their ears hear and listen to; make some champions of life and others wanders of life. - Author: Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
What Is Within quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#14. Courage what is within is more important than what is without. - Author: Cressida Cowell
What Is Within quotes by Cressida Cowell
#15. Jesus breaks what we bring to Him. All too often we come to the table with our best manners and a pose of impenetrable self-sufficiency. We're all surface, all role - polished and poised performers in the game of life. But Jesus is after what is within, and He exposes the insides - our inadequacies. At the table we're not permitted to be self-enclosed. We're not permitted to remain self-sufficient. We are taken into the crucifixion. We dramatize it as we eat the common food. The breaking of our pride and self-approval opens us up to new life, to new action. Everything on the table represents some kind of exchange of life, some sacrifice to our Host. If we come crusted over, hardened within ourselves in lies and poses, He breaks through and brings new life. 'A broken and contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise' (Psalm 51:17). We discover this breaking first in Jesus. Jesus was broken, His blood poured out. And now we discover it in ourselves. Then Jesus gives back what we brought to Him, who we are. But it is no longer what we brought. Who we are, this self that we offer to Him at the table, is changed into what God gives, what we sing of as Amazing Grace. [Living the Resurrection] - Author: Eugene H. Peterson
What Is Within quotes by Eugene H. Peterson
#16. If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you. - Author: Gospel Of Thomas
What Is Within quotes by Gospel Of Thomas
#17. To Epictetus, all external events are determined by fate, and are thus beyond our control, but we can accept whatever happens calmly and dispassionately. Individuals, however, are responsible for their own actions which they can examine and control through rigorous self-discipline. Suffering arises from trying to control what is uncontrollable, or from neglecting what is within our power. As part of the universal city that is the universe, human beings have a duty of care to all fellow humans. The person who followed these precepts would achieve happiness. - Author: Epictetus
What Is Within quotes by Epictetus
#18. I have heard that he who knows what is enough will not let himself be entangled by thoughts of gain; that he who really understands how to find satisfaction will not be afraid of other kinds of loss; and that he who practices the cultivation of what is within him will not be ashamed because he holds no position in society. - Author: Zhuangzi
What Is Within quotes by Zhuangzi
#19. The key is what is within the artist. The artist can only paint what she or he is about. - Author: Lee Krasner
What Is Within quotes by Lee Krasner
#20. But the meaning of these events is not that you are being punished or that someone is to blame, it is that you are living in a world too small, and that you must open up to a larger vision. As the gospel of Thomas says, "If you bring forth what is within you, it will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, it will destroy you."
Look within and Stay Inspired.

What Is Within quotes by Derek Rydall
#21. Midnight has fallen on the darkened streets of Haught and Battens Hill, and the watchman saith, All is well. We have prospered by the day, set our lock and bolt, and tried the windows, and all is well. Want, murder, desperation, and despair still roam in the filthy alleys and tenements of The Steps and breed countless wrongs in their path, yet the watchman passing cries, All is well. The watchman clears away the hungry children who hunt for scraps behind the New Theatre while a nobleman's carriage rolls by, but decent folk turn, sighing in their sleep, and faintly hear the report: all is well. The prison gates are shut, and what is within is surely confined there, and touches us not; therefore, all is well. - Author: Andrei Baltakmens
What Is Within quotes by Andrei Baltakmens
#22. Bring forth what is within you and you will live from what you bring forth. Do not bring forth what is within you and you will die from what you do not bring forth. - Author: Various
What Is Within quotes by Various
#23. The latent abundance of your inner most resources matters less. What matter most is the impact you can make with your inner resources and the distinctive footprints you can leave with what is within you. The excuse not to dare is there for everybody. When you see so many people crowded at the entrance, think of the roofing and if the roofing is too high, think of the next door and if the next door is not penetrable, create a door within the wall. - Author: Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
What Is Within quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#24. These flattering mirrors reflect imperfectly what is within; the countenance is often a gay deceiver. What defects of mind lie hidden under its beauty! What fair exteriors conceal base souls! - Author: Pierre Corneille
What Is Within quotes by Pierre Corneille
#25. Even though we are always with God, a person who lives within the false human mind only has what is within his illusionary false mind. Man does not know God because God's mind does not exist within the human mind. - Author: Woo Myung
What Is Within quotes by Woo Myung
#26. I believe that the greatest truths of the universe don't lie outside, in the study of the stars and the planets. They lie deep within us, in the magnificence of our heart, mind, and soul. Until we understand what is within, we can't understand what is without. - Author: Anita Moorjani
What Is Within quotes by Anita Moorjani
#27. The biggest mistake people make when trying to be authentic is just that: they try. They see these role models of what an "authentic" person is supposed to look like or act like, and they try to emulate that.

Authenticity isn't about what things appear to be. It's about allowing things to be what they are. Authenticity is about getting away from hiding, from wearing a mask, from always asking, "How should I act? What should I say? What will people think?" That includes asking, "How should an authentic person act? What would a genuine person say?"

Being authentic isn't about making yourself a certain way. It's not even about finding out what you "really" enjoy as opposed to what other people enjoy, or who you "really" are as opposed to who other people are. Authenticity is allowing your likes, dislikes, personality, appearance, hobbies, and beliefs to be fluid, to change, to evolve as you learn, grow, and experience the world.

At its core, authenticity is the practice of surrendering the tiresome task of keeping up appearances and taking up of the lifetime work of allowing what is already within you to come out while you remove as many internal and external obstacles as possible.

And who knows what will spill out of you if you just allow it to? Who knows what is within you awaiting recognition, awaiting permission to show itself to the world? Even you don't know - until you try. Or, rather, until you stop trying. Until you become cu - Author: Vironika Tugaleva
What Is Within quotes by Vironika Tugaleva
#28. You have to learn how to turn the tables on the ego. The only way to forgive what is within is to forgive what seems to be without. - Author: Gary Renard
What Is Within quotes by Gary Renard
#29. Live what is within you out loud. - Author: Lisa Bevere
What Is Within quotes by Lisa Bevere
#30. I more fear what is within me than what comes from without. - Author: Martin Luther
What Is Within quotes by Martin Luther
#31. Maybe all the broken dreams and empty promises the world offered are just reflections of what is within us. Maybe one day we will learn to accept ourselves for all the faults sleeping beneath the footprints we leave behind. - Author: Robert M. Drake
What Is Within quotes by Robert M. Drake
#32. As Jesus says in the Gospel of Thomas, "If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you." [Gospel of Thomas 70] - Author: Adyashanti
What Is Within quotes by Adyashanti
#33. Tragedy's language stresses that whatever is within us is obscure, many faceted, impossible to see. Performance gave this question of what is within a physical force. The spectators were far away from the performers, on that hill above the theatre. At the centre of their vision was a small hut, into which they could not see. The physical action presented to their attention was violent but mostly unseen. They inferred it, as they inferred inner movement, from words spoken by figures whose entrances and exits into and out of the visible space patterned the play. They saw its results when that facade opened to reveal a dead body. This genre, with its dialectics of seen and unseen, inside and outside, exit and entrance, was a simultaneously internal and external, intellectual and somatic expression of contemporary questions about the inward sources of harm, knowledge, power, and darkness. - Author: Ruth Padel
What Is Within quotes by Ruth Padel
#34. How you see the world is a reflection of what is within you. - Author: Stephen Richards
What Is Within quotes by Stephen Richards
#35. If leadership is the act of going beyond what is ... it begins by going beyond what is within ourselves. - Author: Kevin Cashman
What Is Within quotes by Kevin Cashman
#36. Jesus said, "If you bring forth what is within you, what you have will save you.
If you do not have that within you, what you do not have within you [will] kill you - Author: Saint Thomas The Apostle
What Is Within quotes by Saint Thomas The Apostle
#37. In the same way the failures which a man makes in his life are due almost always to some defect in his personality, some weakness of body, or mind, or character, will, or temperament. The only way to overcome these failings is to build up his personality from within, so that he, by virtue of what is within him, may overcome the weakness which was the cause of the failure. It is only those efforts the man himself puts forth that can really help him. - Author: John D. Rockefeller
What Is Within quotes by John D. Rockefeller
#38. It is a surprise to me to like myself; among all the elaborate possibilities I contemplated for my future, that never figured. My hard-won contentment reflects the simple truth that inner peace often hinges on outer peace. In the gnostic gospel of St. Thomas, Jesus says, If you bring forth what is within you, what is within you will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what is within you will destroy you. - Author: Andrew Solomon
What Is Within quotes by Andrew Solomon
#39. It isn't ones complexion that makes someone beautiful, but what is within that brings that beauty out. - Author: Hallie
What Is Within quotes by Hallie
#40. Suffering arises from trying to control what is uncontrollable, or from neglecting what is within our power. - Author: Epictetus
What Is Within quotes by Epictetus
#41. The master observes the world but trusts his inner vision. He allows things to come and go. He prefers what is within to what is without. - Author: Lao-Tzu
What Is Within quotes by Lao-Tzu
#42. The Lord only demands of us what is within our capabilities. - Author: Paulo Coelho
What Is Within quotes by Paulo Coelho
#43. Love is not an agreement between two people/parties to exchange love between each other when the time comes that they need it. The "you love me and I love you" does not exist. Love is not an agreement. It's not a label.
Love is sharing. Love is caring. It's when you tell your heart to let out the love stored within it and spread it to every grain of blood in your body. Then comes a time when love begins to overflow. Then you find someone to share it with. It's not agreement. It is natural companionship.
The source? It's just simple self-love. The heart does what it loves. The mind can worry all it wants about the results/outcomes. The heart just follows the journey for the sake of the beautiful flow.
All love is sourced from within. It can only be poured when the bodily cup is full. Love is divine. It is miraculous. It is instant. It is revolutionary. It has no ending when it starts. It's a miracle that those who believe in magic receive.
The light of true love can only be witnessed after a period of blackness and agony. When life's purpose comes into fruition.
The body and mind is just a cover. What is within, the soul, is eternal. It carries with it love wherever it goes. We are souls distracted by material obsessions. Love is spiritual. It makes you believe in God.
Love is not a person. It is a spirit. When you connect with your soul, it attracts the spirit of love. You're greater than the cover you're in at the moment. You begin to under - Author: Hammad Motiwala
What Is Within quotes by Hammad Motiwala
#44. An abiding stereotype of creativity is that it turns people crazy. I disagree: Not expressing creativity turns people crazy. ("If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you don't bring forth what is within you, what you don't bring forth will destroy you." - Gospel of Thomas.) - Author: Elizabeth Gilbert
What Is Within quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#45. You must, in studying Nature, always consider both each single thing and the whole: nothing is inside and nothing is outside, for what is within is without. Make haste, then, to grasp this holy mystery which is public knowledge.

Rejoice in the true illusion, in the serious game: no living thing is a unity, it is always manifold. - Author: Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
What Is Within quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#46. When we bring what is within out into the world, miracles happen. - Author: Henry David Thoreau
What Is Within quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#47. Truth is less complete in its utterance; it does not put everything on the outside; it allows us to see what is within. - Author: Honore De Balzac
What Is Within quotes by Honore De Balzac
#48. Hang it all! what is a man ashamed of nowadays? - Author: G.K. Chesterton
What Is Within quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#49. I made the flames lick the surface of the painting in such a way that is recorded the spontaneous traces of the fire. But what is it that provokes in me this pursuit of the impression of fire? Why must I search for its traces? - Author: Yves Klein
What Is Within quotes by Yves Klein
#50. I went to work. That was a turning point. When you have to do eight shows a week and your name is on the marquee, no matter what is going on at home or what's on the cover of the newspapers, you've got to do your job. - Author: Marla Maples
What Is Within quotes by Marla Maples
#51. Extremism certainly sounds bad, and governments often try to make it sound worse by using the word terrorism in the same sentence. But the word has little meaning. There is no doctrine called extremism. When tyrants speak of extremists, they just mean people who are not in the mainstream - as the tyrants themselves are defining that mainstream at that particular moment. Dissidents of the twentieth century, whether they were resisting fascism or communism, were called extremists. Modern authoritarian regimes, such as Russia, use laws on extremism to punish those who criticize their policies. In this way the notion of extremism comes to mean virtually everything except what is, in fact, extreme: tyranny. - Author: Timothy Snyder
What Is Within quotes by Timothy Snyder
#52. What is Providence for you may be Nemesis for me. - Author: Mason Cooley
What Is Within quotes by Mason Cooley
#53. Most kinds of power require a substantial sacrifice by whoever wants the power. There is an apprenticeship, a discipline lasting many years. Whatever kind of power you want. President of the company. Black belt in karate. Spiritual guru. Whatever it is you seek, you have to put in the time, the practice, the effort. You must give up a lot to get it. It has to be very important to you. And once you have attained it, it's your power. It can't be given away: it resides in you. It is literally the result of your discipline.

Now what is interesting about this process is that, by the time someone has acquired the ability to kill with his bare hands, he has also matured to the point where he won't use it unwisely. So that kind of power has a built-in control. The discipline of getting the you so that you won't abuse it.
But scientific power is like inherited wealth: attained without discipline. You read what others have done, and you take the next step. You can do it very young. You can make progress very fast.
There is no discipline lasting many decades. There is no mastery: old scientists are ignored. There is no humility before nature. There is only a get-rich-quick, make-a-name-for-yourself-fast philosophy.
Cheat, lie, falsify--it doesn't matter. Not to you, or to your colleagues. No one will criticize you. No one has any standards. They all trying to do the same thing: to do something big, and do it fast.
"And because you can stand on the shoulder - Author: Michael Crichton
What Is Within quotes by Michael Crichton
#54. I don't intentionally go: 'Ooh, what is provocative,' and try to do that. I just do stuff, and people go: 'Ooh, that's provocative.' - Author: M.I.A.
What Is Within quotes by M.I.A.
#55. What is required after a glimpse of awakening is radical honesty, a willingness to look at how we unenlighten ourselves, how we bring ourselves back into the gravitational force of the dream state, how we allow ourselves to be divided. - Author: Adyashanti
What Is Within quotes by Adyashanti
#56. If you hear him beat that drum he will reveal something of himself to you, for what is a drumbeat, after all, other than the sound of a great hollowness, like death amplified ? - Author: Kei Miller
What Is Within quotes by Kei Miller
#57. I see many so-called conservative commentators, including some faith leaders, focusing on favorable policy initiatives or court appointments to justify their acceptance of this damage, while de-emphasizing the impact of this president on basic norms and ethics. That strikes me as both hypocritical and wrong. The hypocrisy is evident if you simply switch the names and imagine that a President Hillary Clinton had conducted herself in a similar fashion in office. I've said this earlier but it's worth repeating: close your eyes and imagine these same voices if President Hillary Clinton had told the FBI director, 'I hope you will let it go,' about the investigation of a senior aide, or told casual, easily disprovable lies nearly every day and then demanded we believe them. The hypocrisy is so thick as to be almost darkly funny. I say this as someone who has worked in law enforcement for most of my life, and served presidents of both parties. What is happening now is not normal. It is not fake news. It is not okay.

Whatever your politics, it is wrong to dismiss the damage to the norms and traditions that have guided the presidency and our public life for decades or, in many cases, since the republic was founded. It is also wrong to stand idly by, or worse, to stay silent when you know better, while a president so brazenly seeks to undermine public confidence in law enforcement institutions that were established to keep our leaders in check...without these checks on our l - Author: James Comey
What Is Within quotes by James Comey
#58. Actions punishable by jail sentences are not the only crimes. If we knew the antonym of crime, I think we would know its true nature. God ... salvation ... love ... light. But for God there is the antonym Satan, for salvation there is perdition, for love there is hate, for light there is darkness, for good, evil. Crime and prayer? Crime and repentance? Crime and confession? Crime and ... no, they're all synonymous. What is the opposite of crime? - Author: Osamu Dazai
What Is Within quotes by Osamu Dazai
#59. permission.
You are allowed to make changes to the way you're living. You're allowed to look after yourself. You're allowed to decide what is important to you. And you're allowed to create a life with those things at the center.
It's OK to go slowly. It's OK to say no. It's OK to be different. And it's OK to let go of caring about the Joneses. Just don't replace them with a new set. Instead, create a life full of things that matter to you, and watch as the world revels beauty and humanity and connection. - Author: Brooke McAlary
What Is Within quotes by Brooke McAlary
#60. Another way it is unlike other houses is its thoughts. Most houses do not think. This house has thoughts. Those thoughts are not visible in a picture. Nor in person. But they find their way into the world. Through dreams mostly. While a person sleeps, the house might suddenly have a thought: Taupe is not an emotional catalyst. It's practical and bland. No one cries at any shade of taupe. Or another thought like OMG time! What is time even? And the sleeping person might experience that thought too. - Author: Joseph Fink
What Is Within quotes by Joseph Fink
#61. Newspapers tell beforehand what is going to happen - maybe. - Author: Carl Sandburg
What Is Within quotes by Carl Sandburg
#62. If the only obstacle to the renewal and modernization of France is a choice of personnel, I am completely convinced that the president will make the right choice, .. What is at stake is not Alain Juppe but France. - Author: Alain Juppe
What Is Within quotes by Alain Juppe
#63. Have charity; have patience; have mercy. Never bring a human being, however silly, ignorant, or weak
above all, any little child
to shame and confusion of face. Never by petulance, by suspicion, by ridicule, even by selfish and silly haste
never, above all, by indulging in the devilish pleasure of a sneer
crush what is finest and rouse up what is coarsest in the heart of any fellow-creature. - Author: Charles Kingsley
What Is Within quotes by Charles Kingsley
#64. SOLIDAO, LONELINESS.
What is it that we call loneliness. It can't simply be the absence of others, you can be alone and not lonely, and you can be among people and yet be lonely. So what is it? ... it isn't only that others are there, that they fill up the space next to us. But even when they celebrate us or give advice in a friendly conversation, clever, sensitive advice: even then we can be lonely. So loneliness is not something simply connected with the presence of others or with what they do. Then what? What on earth? - Author: Pascal Mercier
What Is Within quotes by Pascal Mercier
#65. What is lint? How does it find hair dryers and navels? - Author: Augusten Burroughs
What Is Within quotes by Augusten Burroughs

What Is Within quotes by Anton Webern
#67. You have the skill. What is more, you were born a woman, And women, though most helpless in doing good deeds, Are of every evil the cleverest of contrivers. - Author: Euripides
What Is Within quotes by Euripides

What Is Within quotes by Chaim Potok

What Is Within quotes by Sven Lindqvist
#70. What is a historian? Someone who doesn't write well enough to work on a daily. - Author: Karl Kraus
What Is Within quotes by Karl Kraus
#71. Toyin Falola has given us what is truly rare in modern African writing: a seriously funny, racy, irreverent package of memories, and full of the most wonderful pieces of poetry and ordinary information. It is a matter of some interest, that the only other volume A Mouth Sweeter Than Salt reminds one of is Ake, by Wole Soyinka. What is it about these Yorubas? - Author: Ama Ata Aidoo
What Is Within quotes by Ama Ata Aidoo
#72. Now let the matter rest as it is, or as it may be, what avail useless speculations? What is to occur we do not know; still in so far we do! what God wills! - Author: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
What Is Within quotes by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
#73. What is terrifying, I think, about the World Government is not that the world is held under an iron fist, but that the world is sand scooped up in a sieve. The people running it have no more idea than us why there are lights in the sky above the Arby's or why there are ghost cars. Terrifying, right? I think the grand conspiracy of our world is just an argument between idiots. - Author: Joseph Fink
What Is Within quotes by Joseph Fink
#74. Believing that your company is not just about making money, that there is a meaning and a purpose to what you do, that your company has a mission, and that you want to be part of that mission - that is a big prerequisite for working at one of these places. How that differs from joining what might otherwise be called a cult is not entirely clear. What is the difference between a loyal employee and brainwashed cultist? At what point does a person go from being the former to the latter? - Author: Dan Lyons
What Is Within quotes by Dan Lyons
#75. This is the great lesson the depressive learns: Nothing in the world is inherently compelling. Whatever may be really "out there" cannot project itself as an affective experience. It is all a vacuous affair with only a chemical prestige. Nothing is either good or bad, desirable or undesirable, or anything else except that it is made so by laboratories inside us producing the emotions on which we live. And to live on our emotions is to live arbitrarily, inaccurately - imparting meaning to what has none of its own. Yet what other way is there to live? Without the ever-clanking machinery of emotion, everything would come to a standstill. There would be nothing to do, nowhere to go, nothing to be, and no one to know. The alternatives are clear: to live falsely as pawns of affect, or to live factually as depressives, or as individuals who know what is known to the depressive. How advantageous that we are not coerced into choosing one or the other, neither choice being excellent. One look at human existence is proof enough that our species will not be released from the stranglehold of emotionalism that anchors it to hallucinations. That may be no way to live, but to opt for depression would be to opt out of existence as we consciously know it. - Author: Thomas Ligotti
What Is Within quotes by Thomas Ligotti
#76. Against all the opposition in the world, I make this statement - that once I knew a magician. I was a witness of a performance that may some day be considered understandable, but that, in these primitive times, so transcends what is said to be the known that it is what I mean by magic. - Author: Charles Fort
What Is Within quotes by Charles Fort

#79. But that is what the scoffers don't understand: "He
had a dream," they say, "a delirium, a hallucination." Eh! As if that's so clever?
And how proud they are! A dream? what is a dream? And is our life not a dream?
I'll say more: let it never, let it never come true, and let there be no paradise (that
I can understand!) - well, but I will preach all the same. And yet it's so simple: in
one day, in one hour - it could all be set up at once! The main thing is - love others
as yourself, that's the main thing, and it's everything, there's no need for anything
else at all: it will immediately be discovered how to set things up. And yet this is
merely an old truth, repeated and read a billion times, but still it has never taken
root! "The consciousness of life is higher than life, the knowledge of the laws of
happiness is higher than happiness" - that is what must be fought! And I will. If
only everyone wants it, everything can be set up at once. - Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
