„Nature has come to a point where now, unless you take individual responsibility, you cannot grow.“

—  Rajneesh Godman and leader of the Rajneesh movement 1931 - 1990
Context: Nature has come to a point where now, unless you take individual responsibility, you cannot grow. More than this nature cannot do. It has done enough. It has given you life, it has given you opportunity; now how to use it, it has left up to you. Meditation is your freedom, not a biological necessity. You can learn in a certain period of time every day to strengthen meditation, to make it stronger — but carry the flavor of it the whole day. Satyam, Shivam, Sundaram

„I grow neither nettles nor thorns:
I grow a white rose.“

—  José Martí Poet, writer, Cuban nationalist leader 1853 - 1895
Context: I grow a white rose In July just as in January For the sincere friend Who gives me his frank hand. And for the cruel man who pulls out of me the heart with which I live, I grow neither nettles nor thorns: I grow a white rose. As translated in Spanish-American Poetry : A Dual-language Anthology (1996) by Seymour Resnick Variant translation: I cultivate a white rose In July as in January For the sincere friend Who gives me his hand frankly. <p> And for the cruel person who tears out the heart with which I live, I cultivate neither nettles nor thorns: I cultivate a white rose.
