BISPIRIT = Beyond Imagination SPIRIT
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.
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.
Great men are they who see that spiritual is
stronger than any material force,
that thoughts rule the world
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.
Truth is too simple for us; we do not like
those who unmask our illusions.
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.
A simple and independent mind does not toil
at the bidding of any prince.
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.
To be what we are, and to become what we are
capable of becoming, is the only end of life.
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.
When the heart weeps for what it has lost,
the spirit laughs for what it has found.
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.
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.
It matter not what you are thought to be,
but what you are.
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.
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.
The most beautiful thing we can experience is the
mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science.
The true heaven is everywhere, even in the very place
where you stand and go.
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.
We are what we think. All that we are arises with
our thoughts. With our thoughts we make our world.
