“In a decaying society, art, if it is truthful, must also reflect decay and unless it wants to break the faith with its social function, art must show the world as changeable and help change it.” – Ersnt Fischer”
Every fact, every department of your mind, is to be programmed by you, and unless you assume your rightful responsibility and begin to program your own mind, the world will program it for you.” – The Crystal Method
“Inside every one of us is a garden, and every practitioner has to go back to their garden and take care of it. Maybe in the past, you left it untended for a long time. You should know exactly what is going on in your own garden, and try to put everything in order. Restore the beauty; restore the harmony in your garden. If it is well tended, many people will enjoy your garden.” – Thich Nhat Hanh
