"Each time a man stands for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope...."

I never was able to do karate. That's calling me a good actor. I act like I can do anything.

Actually, in its purest form, Islam is incredibly tolerant. That makes what's going on in the world really bizarre.

Let me say this loud and clear. There is a world of difference between terrorist acts and the Islamic Shari'a. Islam is not only a religion, but a way of life. And at its heart lie the sacred principles of tolerance and dialogue.
King Hussein I

"Right now, man thinks that he is a human being looking for spiritual experience.

He needs to understand clearly that he is a spiritual being looking for human experience.

I am working on teaching him that."

Paramahamsa Nithyananda

"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.”

Theodore Roosevelt, “Citizenship in a Republic,"
Speech at the Sorbonne, Paris, April 23, 1910

"I thoroughly disapprove of duels. If a man should challenge me, I would take him kindly and forgivingly by the hand and lead him to a quiet place and kill him."

Quote:
You may train for a long, long time, but if you merely move your hands and feet and jump up and down like a puppet, learning karate is not very different from learning to dance. You will never have reached the heart of the matter; you will have failed to grasp the quintessence of Karate-do. To be deadly serious, then, is not just an essential for a follower of Karate-do; it is equally essential in everyone's daily life, for life is itself a struggle to survive. Anyone so complacent as to assume that after a failure he will have another opportunity will seldom make much of a success of his life.
.... Gichin Funakoshi, founder of Shotokan Karate

'Surrender to the cycle of things. Give yourselves to the wave of the Great Change. Neither happy nor afraid. And when it is time to go – then simply go without any unnecessary fuss.' (T'ao Ch'ien, 4th-century Taoist)
