Justice is not postponed. A perfect equity adjusts its balance in all parts of life. The dice of God are always loaded. The world looks like a multiplication table, or a mathematical equation, which, turn it how you will, balances itself. Take what figure you will, its exact value, nor more nor less, still returns to you. Every secret is told, every crime is punished, every virtue rewarded, every wrong redressed, in silence and certainty. What we call retribution is the universal necessity by which the whole appears whenever a part appears. If you see smoke, there must be fire. . . Crime and punishment grow out of one stem. Punishment is a fruit that unsuspected ripens within the flower of the pleasure which concealed it. Cause and effect, means and end, seed and fruit, cannot be severed; for the effect already blooms in the cause, the end preexists in the means, the fruit in the seed.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson
The self is one. Unmoving, it moves faster than the mind. The senses lag, but Self runs ahead. Unmoving, it outruns pursuit.
Out of Self comes the breath that is the life of all things. Unmoving, it moves; is far away, yet near; within all, outside all.
— The Upanishads
It’s not the situation that’s causing your stress, it’s your thoughts, and you can change that right here and now. You can choose to be peaceful right here and now.Peace is a choice, and it has nothing to do with what other people do or think.
— Gerald G. Jampolsky MD

— Eleanor Roosevelt

You don’t discover the limits of the soul, however far you go.
Never measure the height of a mountain, until you have reached the top. Then you will see how low it was.
— Dag Hammarskjöld
