Joseph Joubert

When we think what we do not feel, we lie to ourselves. We must always think with our whole being, soul and body.

Joseph Joubert

It is the heart which experiences God, and not reason. This then, is faith; God is felt by the heart, not reason.

Blaise Pascal

Blaise Pascal (June 19, 1623, in Clermont-Ferrand, France - August 19, 1662, in Paris) was a French mathematician, physicist, and religious philosopher. He was a child prodigy who was educated by his father, a civil servant. Pascal's earliest work was in the natural and applied sciences where he made important contributions to the construction of mechanical calculators, the study of fluids, and clarified the concepts of pressure and vacuum by generalizing the work of Evangelista Torricelli. Pascal also wrote in defense of the scientific method.

Pascal was a mathematician of the first order. He helped create two major new areas of research. He wrote a significant treatise on the subject of projective geometry at the age of sixteen, and later corresponded with Pierre de Fermat on probability theory, strongly influencing the development of modern economics and social science. Following Galileo and Torricelli, in 1646 he refuted Aristotle's followers who insisted that nature abhors a vacuum. His results caused many disputes before being accepted.

Man is but a being filled with error... The senses deceive reason by false appearances; and just as they cheat reason they are cheated by her in turn: she has her revenge. Passions of the soul trouble the senses, and give them false impressions. They emulously lie and deceive each other.

The mind has its system, which is one of principles and demonstrations; the heart has another. We do not prove that we ought to be loved by setting out systematically the causes of love.

Thomas Gnomologia Fuller

May God bless you with discomfort

At easy answers, half truths, and superficial relationships,

So that you may live deep within your heart.


May God bless you with anger

At injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people,

So that you may work for justice, freedom, and peace.


May God bless you with tears

To shed for those who suffer pain, rejection, hunger, and war,

So that you may reach out your hand to co...

Rumi

The world is too much with us; late and soon,
Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers;
Little we see in Nature that is ours;
We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!
This Sea that bares her bosom to the moon,
The winds that will be howling at all hours,
And are up-gathered now like sleeping flowers,
For this, for everything, we are out of tune;
It moves us not.--Great God! I'd rather be
A Pagan suckled in a creed outworn; (1)
So might ...

William Wordsworth William Wordsworth (7 April 1770 - 23 April 1850) was a major English Romantic poet who, with Samuel Taylor Coleridge, helped to launch the Romantic Age in English literature with the 1798 joint publication Lyrical Ballads. Wordsworth's magnum opus is generally considered to be The Prelude, a semiautobiographical poem of his early years which the poet revised and expanded a number of times. The work was posthumously titled and published, prior to which it was generally known as the poem "to Coleridge". Wordsworth was England's Poet Laureate from 1843 until his death in 1850.

Let those with an ear to hear and an eye to see try to understand Wisdom, as I am. Right here, right now, in the eternal now which we are always in, we should do and think and say what we know in our heart is selfless, correct, and for the benefit of all concerned. Otherwise, it is self-centered, vain folly, fruitless, detrimental to others, and even detrimental to our own spiritual growth
