Quotes to Ponder

“There is more wisdom in your body than in your deepest philosophy.”― Friedrich Nietzsche

“Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.” ―Thich Nhat Hanh

“You might think you’re thinking your own thoughts. You’re not. You’re thinking your culture’s thoughts.” ― Jiddu Krishnamurti

“Our troubles arise from the fact that we do not know what we are and cannot agree on what we want to be. The primary cause of this intellectual failure is ignorance of our origins. We did not arrive on this planet as aliens. Humanity is part of nature, a species that evolved among other species. The more closely we identify ourselves with the rest of life, the more quickly we will be able to discover the sources of human sensibility and acquire the knowledge on which an enduring ethic, a sense of preferred direction, can be built.” E.O. Wilson

“The material of the doomed stars and the material of my doomed body are actually the same material. Literally the same atoms… It is astonishing but true that if I could attach a small tag to each of the atoms of my body and travel with them backward in time, I would find that those atoms originated in particular stars in the sky. Those exact atoms.” Alan Lightman
