I've been storing up my wisdom this weekend....

Quote of the Day 7/23

I value the friend who for me finds time on his calendar, but I cherish the friend who for me does not consult his calendar.

-Robert Brault

Daily Hindu Wisdom

He who has no desires has no sorrow, but where there is desire
There will be ever-increasing sorrows.

When desire, sorrow's sorrow, dies away,
Undying bliss prevails even here on earth.

It is the nature of desire never to be fulfilled, but he who utterly
Gives it up realizes eternal fulfillment at that very moment.

-Tirukkural 37: 368-370

Quote of the Day 7/24

Good people are good because they’ve come to wisdom through failure. We get very little wisdom from success, you know.

-William Saroyan

Daily Hindu Wisdom

As butter lies hidden within milk,
The Self is hidden in the hearts of all.
Churn the mind through meditation on it;
Light your fire through meditation on it:
The Self, all whole, all peace, all certitude.
