theme: "human"

Jane Goodall about humans

What makes us human, I think, is an ability to ask questions, a consequence of our sophisticated spoken language.

Mother Teresa about humans

One of the greatest diseases is to be nobody to anybody.

Pablo Picasso about art and reality

Who sees the human face correctly: the photographer, the mirror, or the painter?

Thich Nhat Hanh about listening

Compassionate listening is to help the other side suffer less. If we realize that other people are the same people as we are, we are no longer angry at them.

Thich Nhat Hanh about freedom

Freedom is not given to us by anyone; we have to cultivate it ourselves. It is a daily practice… No one can prevent you from being aware of each step you take or each breath in and breath out.

Thich Nhat Hanh about goals in life

Let us fill our hearts with our own compassion – towards ourselves and towards all living beings.

Thich Nhat Hanh about resting and relaxing

We humans have lost the wisdom of genuinely resting and relaxing. We worry too much. We don’t allow our bodies to heal, and we don’t allow our minds and hearts to heal.
