Faith of A Mustard Seed

Some really great people have walked this planet and shared their Knowledge for the generations to come.  And ‘Real Knowledge’ is ‘Time Tested’ and found… True!

“Opinion is the medium between knowledge and ignorance.” (Plato)

“In spite of our tendency to error, a knowing mind is always in contact, at some point or other, with the actual world.  What we know is not merely our ideas, but the real world, our ideas constituting our more or less accurate apprehension of the nature of the real world.  One of the purposes of human life is the constant re-examination of those apprehensions in the hope that they will become increasingly more accurate.  Knowledge is never simple or easy, delusion is common, and the true apprehension of reality, if it comes, comes at the end of the process rather than at the beginning.  Genuine knowledge is always an achievement and never the datum with which we start.”  (D. Trueblood).

“Share your knowledge.  It is a way to achieve immortality” (Dalai Lama XIV)

“In our search for religious knowledge, one of the primary guides should be the principle of inclusiveness.  The student must not be satisfied with his knowledge of one religious tradition— and that perhaps only partially understood.  He must seek to know sympathetically all the religions of mankind, and to understand why each has claimed for itself the same ultimate authority which all the others claim.  If (you) know only one religion (you are) a most unsatisfactory judge of any religion.” (Q. Lyon)

“Ignorance is the curse of God; knowledge is the wing wherewith we fly to heaven.”  (William Shakespeare)

“And the LORD said to me, “Faithless Israel has shown herself less guilty than false Judah.  Go, and proclaim these words toward the north, and say, ‘Return, faithless Israel, says the LORD.  I will not look on you in anger, for I am merciful, says the LORD; I will not be angry for ever.  Only acknowledge your guilt, that you rebelled against the LORD your God and scattered your favors among strangers under every green tree, and that you have not obeyed my voice, says the LORD.  Return, O faithless children, says the LORD; for I am your master; I will take you, one from a city and two from a family, and I will bring you to Zion.  And I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will feed you with knowledge and understanding.  (Jeremiah)

“A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.” (Marcus Garvery)

“One part of knowledge consists of being ignorant of such things as are not worthy to be known.” (Socrates).

“…a human being is a multi-leveled being, a being that is made of, so to say, several stories, one above the other.  The highest one is really identical with the God-head; the highest one.  … As it is, it’s as though I inherited a skyscraper and I’m living only on the first story, or sometimes even below, in the basement.” (A. Steinsaltz)

“Knowledge is Biblical.  Education is not.”  (Barbara Woods)
