Quote Book -[5]- People

Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
Life is just a mirror, and what you see out there, you must first see inside of you.
As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.
“Only a life lived for others is worth living”
“A person starts to live when he can live outside himself.”
“Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.”
That best portion of a good man’s life,
His little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love.
I like life. It’s something to do. Somewhere on this globe every 10 seconds, there is a woman giving birth to a child. She must be found and stopped.
Two days after being shot twice by unknown gunmen, Bob Marley performed at “Smile Jamaica,” a free concert to promote peace in Jamaica. When asked why he performed afterwards, Marley replied “the people who are trying to make this world worse aren’t taking a day off. How can I?”  “How can I?”
“Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checked by failure…than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.”
“When I was young, I expected people to give me more than they could – continuous friendship, permanent emotions. Now I have learned to expect less of them than they can give – a silent companionship. And their emotions, their friendship, and noble gestures keep their full miraculous value in my eyes; wholly the fruit of grace.”
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
“We are fools to depend upon the society of our fellow-men. Wretched as we are, powerless as we are, they will not aid us; we shall die alone. We should therefore act as if we were alone, and in that case should we build fine houses, etc.? We should seek the truth without hesitation; and, if we refuse it, we show that we value the esteem of men more than the search for truth.”
