Chritonís collection of quotes: Updated at random
I come up with a new quote every week to pass out, but there are so many great quotes I cannot use because of what they construe. I think people will enjoy them though.

Nothing like a good 450 year old quote that is still true today.

On the most exalted throne in the world, we are still seated on nothing but out arse. - Michel De Montaigne




Who was he and why did he say this? French statesmen ahead of his time who is still read today.
[link to en.wikipedia.org]



One last thing, I do not use the net to find these quotes instead for the last 25+ years if I hear a quote I like I save it in a book. I know my book by heart and it's a LOT of quotes.

Enjoy.

 Quoting: Chrit

Impressive. You always have good quotes. I struggle to remember one without looking it up. Like the one that says, in effect, the higher you are, the farther you have to fall. LOL.

There are some awesome quotes listed at the end of the Wiki article. Thanks for sharing!

For the first week I'll get a few extra quotes posted to get the page started.


This quote is over 2300 years old now.

Hatred is never appeased by hatred in this world; it is appeased by love. This is an eternal Law. - Dhammapada

The Dhammapada is a collection of verses that were spoken by Buddha himself & organized in to easily understandable book of verses. The name Dhammapada loosely translated means ďeternal truth path or righteousness verseĒ or about 100 others things depending on the translator.

I have a hand full of the 400+ verses I really enjoy.

This next quote is around 370 year old now.




To ridicule philosophy, that is to be a real philosopher. - Blaise Pascal


A French man, Blaise Pascal is one of the bases for the existentialist movement. He was a mathematician, physicist, religious philosopher and master poet.

He formulated what became known as Pascalís law creating the basis for hydraulic systems like the hydraulic jack and breaks systems on cars.

He argued we experience god through the heart and not through reason.

This next quote is around 780 years old now.


Dogen Zenji also known as Koso Joyo Daishi Was a well-traveled Buddhist teacher who in 1246 renamed the temple he had founded Eihei-ji . This temple still exists today nearly 800 years later.

A single question drove most of his life ďIf Buddhaís of the ages are enlightened why did they seek enlightenment and engage in spiritual practiceĒ If we are all born enlightened then achieving enlightenment through practice is flawed.

Nearly everything he thought in the temple was recorded and still read today.



A flower falls even though we love it. A weed grows even though we don't love it. -Dogen

A good quote from the founder of cubism.

Mind you the computers of his time were the size of buildings. But the quote still brings thought to the table.

What happens to the hole when the cheese is gone? - Bertolt Brecht

Bertolt Brecht was a poet, playwright and theater director who was best known for how he changed theater. He realized if you create a mystery out of the familiar then the whole concept of theater could be changed & change it did because of his teachings.

In principle the idea he was conveying is to take something familiar and ask a legitimate question about a known item that changes the familiarity of the said item, turning in to something other than what it is commonly perceived as.

This quote is a prime example of his teachings and philosophy.

Going to put a few together to convey an ideaÖ


A language is a map of our failures. Ė Adrienne Rich

Having failed to distinguish thoughts form things, we then fail to distinguish words from thoughts. We think that if we can label a thing we have understood it. Ė Sangharakshita

One word of explanation already misses the mark.[i] ĖEjo

Words exist because of their meaning. Once you have the meaning, you can forget the words. Where can I find the man who has forgotten the word so I can talk with him? -Chuang Tzu

whose learning is deep
seldom sings with joy.

Wake early
