Know that every thought and word that weakens you in this world is the only evil that exists. Whatever makes men weak and makes them fear is the only evil that should be shunned.
Live in the midst of the battle of life. Anyone can keep calm in a cave or when asleep. Stand in the whirl and madness of action and reach the Center. If you have found the Center, you cannot be moved.
All search is in vain, until we begin to perceive that wisdom is within ourselves.
Through delusion we have been trying to forget our nature, and yet we could not; it is always calling upon us, and all our search after God or gods, or external freedom, was a search after our real nature.
