I imagine hell would be a library with books with all blank pages.
If you want to build a ship don’t herd people together to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery (via joe-lawson)
Communication can only take place via one’s will to remain authentic. We cannot commune when hiding behind the vague precepts that our fear of vulnerability entails. Only through taking the risk of honest expression can we build connection. Justified deception is perpetual separation, and is the dysfunction in which we succumb to lifestyles of agonizing isolation even when surrounded by so many.
The church was meant to be a hospital for the hurting and the lost, not for the self-righteous and well-dressed.
Jeremiah van Guilder (via philosophy-quotes)
I have a lot to say, you just have to ask the right questions.

The complexity of our present trouble suggests as never before that we need to change our present concept of education. Education is not properly an industry, and its proper use is not to serve industries, either by job-training or by industry-subsidized research. It’s proper use is to enable citizens to live lives that are economically, politically, socially, and culturally responsible. This cannot be done by gathering or “accessing” what we now call “information” - which is to say facts without context and therefore without priority. A proper education enables young people to put their lives in order, which means knowing what things are more important than other things; it means putting first things first.
Wendell Berry (via liberatingreality)
The difference between a Man and a Gentleman.
Ego says, once everything falls into place, I’ll feel peace. Spirit says, find your peace, and then everything will fall into place.
