Inspiring quotes on Thinking and doing by J W Goethe,Thought and fear by Bertrand Russel /beautiful quote on Fear and love/reflections and quotes on Truth

Thinking and doing:the sum of all Wisdom
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Vicente Romero Redondo art

Once one knows what really matters, one ceases to be voluble.
And what does really matter? That is easy: thinking and doing,
doing and thinking - and these are the sum of all wisdom...Both
must move ever onward in life, to and fro, like breathing in and
breathing out. Whoever makes it a rule to test action by thought,
thought by action, cannot falter, and if he does, will soon find his
way back to the right road.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Don’t learn to do, but learn in doing. Let your falls not be
on a prepared ground, but let them be bona fide falls in
the rough and tumble of the world.
Samuel Butle

Thought and fear
Bertrand Russel
(Principles of Social Reconstruction)

But if thought is to become the possession of many,
not the privilege of the few,we must have done with fear.
It is fear that holds men back — fear lest their cherished
beliefs should prove delusions, fear lest the institutions
by which they live should prove harmful, fear lest they
themselves should prove less worthy of respect than they
have supposed themselves to be.
Bertrand Russell

Men fear thought as they fear nothing else on earth,
more than ruin, more even than death.
Thought is subversive and revolutionary, destructive
and terrible, thought is merciless to privilege,
established institutions, and comfortable habit.
Thought looks into the pit of hell and is not afraid.
Thought is great and swift and free, the light
of the world, and the chief glory of man.
Bertrand Russell

Fear or love
The Choice for Love

What does the voice of fear
whisper to you?
Fear speaks to you
in logic and reason.
It assumes the language
of love itself.
Fear tells you,
"I want to make you safe."
Love says,
"You are safe."

Fear says,
"Give me symbols,
Give me frozen images.
Give me something
I can rely on."

Loving trust says,
"Only give me
this moment."

Fear would walk you
on a narrow path
promising to take you
where you want to go.

Love says,
"Open your arms
and fly with me."

Every moment of your life
you are offered the opportunity
to choose-
love or fear,
to tread the earth
or to soar the heavens.
Emmanuel from his book: Emmanuel's Book II
Inspiring quotes on Truth

Though all the winds of doctrine were let loose to play
upon the earth, so Truth be in the field, we do injuriously
by licensing and prohibiting to misdoubt her strength.
Let her and Falsehood grapple;who ever knew Truth put
to the worse, in a free and open encounter.
JOHN MILTON, Areopagitica

Truth Poem
By Geoff Haselhurst

Truth! oh wondrous subject oft forbidden.
What dark latent power lays subtly hidden.
Yea! Truth, my master, lead me forward,
and slay those lies with reasoned word.
For falsity thrives (and drives me wild),
Poisoning the mind of innocent child.

Give me a fruitful error any time, full
of seeds, bursting with its own corrections. You can keep
your sterile truth for yourself.
Vilfredo Pareto

Art by Istvan Sandorfi

The relationship to one's fellow man is the relationship
of prayer, the relationship to oneself is the relationship
of striving; it is from prayer that one draws the strength
for one's striving.
Franz Kafka
