Don’t hate life and death or love life and death. Keep your every thought free of delusion, and in life you’ll witness the beginning of nirvana, and in death you’ll experience the assurance of no rebirth.
In life, whatever you achieve by putting in efforts will never give you happiness,
as the pain starts right from the time of making an effort. On the other hand, the
tasks that you enjoy doing, persist for long spells; then whatever you gain out of
it, the end result will always be both positive and effective for your life.

Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure.

Live in the world like a waterfowl. The water clings to the bird, but the bird shakes it off. Live in the world like a mudfish. The fish lives in the mud, but its skin is always bright and shiny.
- Ramakrishna Paramahamsa
Life is life – Whether in a cat, or dog or man. There is no difference there between a cat or a man. The idea of difference is a human conception for man’s own advantage.
- Sri Aurobindo
One’s entire life is a continuous process of learning. Any process of inquiry is related to learning. But basically our inquiry should be concerned with finding out what is transient and what is permanent. This is true knowledge.
- Sathya Sai Baba
You must always believe that life is as extraordinary as music says it is.
- Rebecca West
If you care about something you have to protect it – If you’re lucky enough to find a way of life you love, you have to find the courage to live it.
