„The European has turned for relief to drugs and pharmaceuticals the Indians discovered“

—  Peter Farb American academic and writer 1929 - 1980
Context: Within a century or so after the discovery of America, more than fifty new foods had been carried back to the Old World, including maize, turkey, white potato, pumpkin, squash, the so-called Jerusalem artichoke, avocado, chocolate, and several kinds of beans. (Potatoes and maize now rank second and third in total tonnage of the world's crops, behind rice but ahead of what is probably man's oldest cultivated grain, wheat.) The European has turned for relief to drugs and pharmaceuticals the Indians discovered: quinine, ephedrine, novocaine, curare, ipecac, and witch hazel.

„If the ego is pulled toward the world, it makes a wall. If the same ego is pulled toward God, it makes a ladder“

—  Baba Hari Dass master yogi, author, builder, commentator of Indian spiritual tradition 1923
Context: Control of the mind can be achieved by understanding yourself, the aim and the energy which is blocking us from progressing. Between God and the Self, the blocking energy is the ego. If the ego is pulled toward the world, it makes a wall. If the same ego is pulled toward God, it makes a ladder.
