What is your favourite quote and why?

I would like to begin here a compendium of those bits of wisdom humanity perceives to be most true or without exception.

It is not necessary to name who might be credited with saying your selection, as no such person can honestly claim to have been without some outside inspiration, which catalyzed their creativity and moved them to express their insight.
Much like what you are called here to do.

If you yourself have distilled some wisdom through reflection, please allow me to present you this moment to pass it on here for consideration or perhaps start your own string.

The purpose of all this is to provide a most efficient tool for correlating the most valid ideas about morality and what we perceive to be real or important across culture or socialization. I would then like to work with you to turn this soil and see what new things (ideas) might grow. Food for the soul.

You are encouraged to emulate the creative process here so: COPY, COMBINE and TRANSFORM! Help me correlate.

Please comment in a constructive way if you agree or not with anything posted here and explain why.

Topics: education quotes

    • Mar 26 2012: "I said to my soul, be still, and wait without hope
      For hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love,
      For love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith
      But the faith and the love and the hope are all in the waiting.
      Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought:
      So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing."

      T. S. Eliot, 'East Coker'
