„To will oneself moral and to will oneself free are one and the same decision.“

—  Simone de Beauvoir, The Ethics of Ambiguity
Context: To will freedom and to will to disclose being are one and the same choice; hence, freedom takes a positive and constructive step which causes being to pass to existence in a movement which is constantly surpassed. Pt. III : The Positive Aspect of Ambiguity, Ch. 3 : Freedom and Liberation]

„Once, one has experienced this, one sees oneself in everything that lives, one recognises all of life as his life, everybody's interests as his own.“

—  Meher Baba Indian mystic 1894 - 1969
General sources, Context: Life becomes meaningful and all activities are purposeful only on the basis of faith in the enduring reality. … The greatest romance possible in life is to discover this Eternal Reality in the midst of infinite change. Once, one has experienced this, one sees oneself in everything that lives, one recognises all of life as his life, everybody's interests as his own. One is no longer bound by habits of the past, no longer swayed by the hopes of the future — One lives in and enjoys each present moment to the full. There is no greater romance in life than this adventure in realization. Message at Pickfair, Beverly Hills, California (1 June 1932), as quoted in Life Is A Jest (1974) edited by A. K. Hajra <!-- or 6 January? 1932 Me p100-101 -->

„I gave what other women gave
That stepped out of their clothes.
But when this soul, its body off,
Naked to naked goes,
He it has found shall find therein
What none other knows“

—  W.B. Yeats, livro The Winding Stair and Other Poems
The Winding Stair and Other Poems (1933), Context: p>I gave what other women gave That stepped out of their clothes. But when this soul, its body off, Naked to naked goes, He it has found shall find therein What none other knows,And give his own and take his own And rule in his own right; And though it loved in misery Close and cling so tight, There’s not a bird of day that dare Extinguish that delight.</p A Last Confession http://poetry.poetryx.com/poems/1404/, St. 3 & 4
