Im Wasser wogt die Lilie Von Karl August von Platen


Im Wasser wogt die Lilie, die blanke, hin und her,
Doch irrst du, Freund, sobald du sagst, sie schwanke hin und her:
Es wurzelt ja so fest ihr Fuß im tiefen Meeresgrund,
Ihr Haupt nur wiegt ein lieblicher Gedanke hin un her!
Karl August von Platen

Give the ones you love by Dalai Lama XIV


Give the ones you love wings to fly,
roots to come back and reasons to stay.
Dalai Lama XIV

But when you LOVE a flower,you water it daily.
One who understands this, understands life.

Balance your thought by Aleister Crowley


Balance every thought with its opposition.
Because the marriage of them is the destruction of illusion.

It is the mark of the mind untrained to take its own processes
as valid for all men, and its own judgments for absolute truth.
Aleister Crowley

To-Night by Louise Chandler Moulton


To-night
Louise Chandler Moulton

BEND low, O dusky Night,
And give my spirit rest.
Hold me to your deep breast,
And put old cares to flight.
Give back the lost delight
That once my soul possest,
When Love was loveliest.
Bend low, O dusky Night!

Enfold me in your arms—
The sole embrace I crave
Until the embracing grave
Shield me from life’s alarms.
I dare your subtlest charms;
Your deepest spell I brave,—
O, strong to slay or save,
Enfold me in your arms!

Famous Inspirational Quotes
Lao Tzu

Be careful what you water your dreams with.
Water them with worry and fear and you will
produce weeds that choke the life from your dream.
Water them with optimism and solutions and you will cultivate success.
Always be on the lookout for ways to turn a problem into an opportunity
for success. Always be on the lookout for ways to nurture your dream.


Go to the people. Live with them. Learn from them.
Love them. Start with what they know. Build with what
they have. But with the bestleaders, when the work
is done, the task accomplished, the people will say
'We have done this ourselves.”

Would you like to save the world from the degradation and destruction
it seems destined for? Then step away from shallow mass movements and
quietly go to work on your own self-awareness. If you want to awaken
all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself. If you want to eliminate
the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative
in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your
own self-transformation.


If a person seems wicked, do not cast him away.
Awaken him with your words, elevate him with your deeds,
repay his injury with your kindness.
Do not cast him away; cast away his wickedness.

The supreme good is like water,
which nourishes all things without trying to.
It is content with the low places that people disdain.

In dwelling, live close to the ground.
In thinking, keep to the simple.
In conflict, be fair and generous.
In governing, don't try to control.
In work, do what you enjoy.
In family life, be completely present.

Water is fluid, soft, and yielding. But water will wear away rock,
which is rigid and cannot yield. As a rule, whatever is fluid, soft,
and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard.
This is another paradox: what is soft is strong.


Simplicity, patience, compassion.
These three are your greatest treasures.
Simple in actions and thoughts, you return to the source of being.
Patient with both friends and enemies,you accord with the way things are.
Compassionate toward yourself,you reconcile all beings in the world.

Knowing others is intelligence;
knowing yourself is true wisdom.
Mastering others is strength;
mastering yourself is true power.

I have three precious things which I hold fast and prize.
The first is gentleness; the second is frugality;
the third is humility, which keeps me from putting myself before others.
Be gentle and you can be bold; be frugal and you can be liberal;
avoid putting yourself before others and you can become a leader among men.

Manifest plainness,
Embrace simplicity,
Reduce selfishness,
Have few desires.

Kindness in words creates confidence.
Kindness in thinking creates profoundness.
Kindness in giving creates love.

Do the difficult things while they are easy
and do the great things while they are small.
A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.

Surrender your self-interest.
Love others as much as you love yourself.
Then you can be entrusted with all things under heaven.

Colors blind the eye.
Sounds deafen the ear.
Flavors numb the taste.
Thoughts weaken the mind.
Desires wither the heart.

The Master observes the world
but trusts his inner vision.
He allows things to come and go.
His heart is open as the sky.

Fill your bowl to the brim
and it will spill.
Keep sharpening your knife
and it will blunt.
Chase after money and security
and your heart will never unclench.
Care about people's approval
and you will be their prisoner.

Do your work, then step back.
The only path to serenity.


We join spokes together in a wheel,
but it is the center hole
that makes the wagon move.

We shape clay into a pot,
but it is the emptiness inside
that holds whatever we want.

We hammer wood for a house,
but it is the inner space
that makes it livable.

We work with being,
but non-being is what we use.


A good traveler has no fixed plans
and is not intent upon arriving.
A good artist lets his intuition
lead him wherever it wants.
A good scientist has freed himself of concepts
and keeps his mind open to what is.

Thus the Master is available to all people
and doesn't reject anyone.
He is ready to use all situations
and doesn't waste anything.
This is called embodying the light.

What is a good man but a bad man's teacher?
What is a bad man but a good man's job?
If you don't understand this, you will get lost,
however intelligent you are.
It is the great secret.

so the unwanting soul
sees what's hidden,
and the ever-wanting soul
sees only what it wants.
