If I tell you that I would be disobeying the god and on that account it is impossible for me to keep quiet, you wonít be persuaded by me, taking it that I am ironizing. And if I tell you that it is the greatest good for a human being to have discussions every day about virtue and the other things you hear me talking about, examining myself and others, and that the unexamined life is not livable for a human being, you will be even less persuaded.

Truth, as it exists in all the world, is of thirteen kinds. The forms that Truth assumes are impartiality, self-control, forgiveness, modesty, endurance, goodness , renunciation, contemplation, dignity, fortitude, compassion and abstention from injury. ~ Mahabharatha

Sincerity and Truth are the basis of every virtue. ~ Confucius.

I would rather be the author of one original thought than conqueror of a hundred battles. Yet moral excellence is so much superior to intellectual, that I ought to esteem one virtue more valuable than a hundred original thoughts. ~ William Benton Clulow

For the learning of every virtue there is an appropriate discipline, and for the learning of suspended judgment the best discipline is philosophy. ~ Bertrand Russell

I need to be a mother to my mind, teaching it to think the right kind of thoughts. Even when everything is going well, I need to train the mind. Taking one positive thought every day and spending time with it brings good results. This training makes the mind obedient at the time of need and allows me to be positive even in the most negative situations. ~ Dadi Janki ( Prajapita Brahmakumaris)

Our patience will achieve more than our force. ~ Edmund Burke
