"Democracy destroys itself because it abuses its right to freedom and equality. Because it teaches its citizens to consider audacity as a right, lawlessness as a freedom, abrasive speech as equality, and anarchy as progress." Isocrates (436–338 BC)

Sri Ramana Maharshi

Wanting to reform the world without discovering one's true self is like trying to cover the world with leather to avoid the pain of walking on stones and thorns. It is much simpler to wear shoes.

Sri Ramana Maharshi
The rebellious years of youth give way to the decades of apathy that follow. The antidote to this common affliction is more rebellion.

Listen to the birds.

That's where all the music comes from. 

Birds know everything about how it should sound and where that sound should come from. 

And watch hummingbirds. They fly really fast, but a lot of times they aren't going anywhere.

Captain Beefheart
