  2. Richard Feynman:

  3. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    Too much truth is the style of a drunken master, intoxicated with the sweet wine of philosophical poetry, a comical third eye, whose power of thought will break stone and ice.

Loneliness enhances the force of the blow, its depth of thought, piercing consciousness and subconsciousness. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    The word "GURU" stands for Philosophical and Spiritual Guide. Interestingly, in its spelling (GURU) is embedded the hidden message "Gee, you are you", i. e. the knowledge and guidance is with no one else but you. You are truly the part of the same Supreme Power that created you. Hence the knowledge and guidance that you are seeking from outside is really within you, in your deep inner mind where lies that divine spark of intelligence from the Supreme Power. Really and truly, you are the best guide, the best spiritual leader that you can find for yourself. Seek within, and believe in yourself - always! The path of illumination always begins at this very juncture of Self-realization, and recognition of the Supreme Power within.
