Never Enough Pondering

(Some more quotes from my wondrous Mastery Foundation quote box. I have nothing to say about any of them because I'm still ruminating about them, pondering them, trying to absorb them into my being. Try it.)

"It's not that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old, they grow old because they stop pursuing dreams."   --Gabriel Garcia Marquez

"What is needed is a realization that power without love is reckless and abusive, love without power is sentimental and anemic."   --Martin Luther King, Jr.

"What's really interesting is the mystery. The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer."   --Ken Kesey

"The first duty of love is to listen."  --Paul Tillich

"Our Druid ancestors welcomed ever child with the words: Here come God again."
                                                                   --Fr. John Cullen

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world...."   --Albert Einstein

"The function of prayer is not to influence God, but rather to change the nature of the one who prays."    --Soren Kierkegaard

"Loving Humility is a terrible force: it is the strongest of all things and there is nothing like it."
                --Fyodor Dostoyevsky

(Happy and wondrous and profound pondering to you....)
