BISPIRIT = Beyond Imagination SPIRIT

QUOTES

All of our life, we have always loved reading quotes from some of the greatest beings that have graced the planet.  One of the things that has always surprised us about the Beyond Imagination expression is how rich it is in quotes and quotable passages.  Over the course of the past 20 years, we have generated many quotes pages and a good number of quotes works.  Though, it is not our place to assess the quality of these quotes.  We know that they move us deeply ... indeed, many of them stir our soul and cause our spirit to soar.  We hope that they will do this for you as well.  Indeed, we invite you to create works of your own by selecting from among the many quotes that we present here.  One that we remember is:

Who you are counts for a lot, but what you do makes all of the difference.


Please take our advice and do whatever you are moved to do.  We would appreciate whatever feedback that you are able to provide in this manner.

WORDS OF WISDOM

I had these quotes hanging on my wall at work for many years, each on a full sheet of paper. When I had to move to another building, I felt compelled to capture them before I took them down. They tell you a lot about who I am based on who I associate with and the specific words of wisdom that I find most valuable and meaningful!


There is no thought in any mind, but it

quickly converts itself into a power, and

organizes a huge instrumentality of means.  

EMERSON


All things are known to the soul.

It is not to be surprised by any communication.

Nothing can be greater than it, let those fear

and those fawn who will. The soul is in her

native realm; and it is wider than space,

older than time, wide as hope, rich as love.

EMERSON


Great men are they who see that spiritual is

stronger than any material force,

that thoughts rule the world

EMERSON


It is easy to live after the world's opinion;

it is easy in solitude to live after your own;

but the great man is he who, in the midst

of the crowd, keeps with perfect sweetness

the independence of solitude.

EMERSON


Truth is too simple for us; we do not like

those who unmask our illusions.

EMERSON


The millions are awake enough for physical labor;

but only one in a million is awake enough for

effective intellectual exertion, only one in a hundred

million to a poetic or divine life. To be awake

is to be alive ... We must learn to reawaken and

keep ourselves awake, not by mechanical aids, but

by an infinite expectation of the dawn.

THOREAU


A simple and independent mind does not toil

at the bidding of any prince.

THOREAU


I know of no more encouraging fact than the

unquestionable ability of a man to elevate his life

by a conscious endeavor. It is something to be able

to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue,

and so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is

far more glorious to carve and paint the very

atmosphere through which we look, which

morally we can do. To affect the quality of the day,

that is the highest of art.

THOREAU


To be what we are, and to become what we are

capable of becoming, is the only end of life.


STEVENSON


Once you are given the knowingness, you can never

fall back into ignorance. Thy destiny must be manifest.

For, the fate of the world is intertwined with the

destiny of each individual.



Each of you has the power to change your world --

to enhance it in ways that go beyond your wildest

imaginings. What you do and how you do it makes

all the difference.

WAYNE



When the heart weeps for what it has lost,

the spirit laughs for what it has found.

SUFISM



I call that mind free which jealously guards the intellectual rights and powers,

which calls no man master,

which does not content itself to a passive or hereditary faith,

which opens itself to light whencesoever it may come,

which receives new truth as an angel for heaven,

which, whilst consulting others, inquires still more of the oracle within itself,

and uses instructions from abroad, not to supersede, but to quicken and exalt, it's own energies.

CHANNING



I call that mind free which protects itself against the

usurpations of society, which does not cower to human opinion,

which feels itself accountable to a higher tribunal

than man's, which respects itself too much to be the

slave of the many or the few.

CHANNING



It matter not what you are thought to be,

but what you are.

SYRUS



You are here to experience the joy, the wonder, and the

exhilaration of living life as spirit in flesh. You are gods

incarnate, here to learn of your own creative nature. You

are free to use your talents and abilities in any way you

desire. Your life is your creation --

if you don't like it, it is up to you to change it

through your own desires, beliefs, and actions.

WAYNE



Renouncing the honors at which the world aims, I desire

only to know the truth ... and to the maximum of my

power, I exhort all other men to do the same.

PLATO



The most beautiful thing we can experience is the

mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science.

EINSTEIN



The true heaven is everywhere, even in the very place

where you stand and go.

BOEHME



Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor

imagination nor both together go to the making of genius.

Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius.

MOZART



We are what we think. All that we are arises with

our thoughts. With our thoughts we make our world.
