That which we look on with unselfish loveAnd true humility is surely ours,Even as a lake looks at the stars aboveAnd makes within itself a heaven of stars.mary gardiner brainard
God is all love, and the more we are like Him the more we shall love; the trouble is not in the quantity but the quality of our love.

I believe that any man's life will be filled with constant, unexpected encouragements of this kind if he makes up his mind to do his level best each day of his life — that is, tries to make each day reach as nearly as possible the high-water mark of pure, unselfish, useful living.booker t. washington

There seem to two kinds of searchers: those who seek to make their ego something other than it is, i.e. holy, happy, unselfish (as though you could make a fish unfish), and those who understand that all such attempts are just gesticulation and play-acting, that there is only one thing that can be done, which is to disidentify themselves with the ego, by realising its unreality, and by becoming aware of their eternal identity with pure being.
