„Goodness shows itself in behaviour and action and in relationship.“

—  Jiddu Krishnamurti Indian spiritual philosopher 1895 - 1986
Context: Goodness shows itself in behaviour and action and in relationship. Generally our daily behaviour is based on either the following of certain patterns — mechanical and therefore superficial — or according to very carefully thought-out motive, based on reward or punishment. So our behaviour, consciously or unconsciously, is calculated. This is not good behaviour. When one realizes this, not merely intellectually or by putting words together, then out of this total negation comes true behaviour. Vol. I, p. 12

„Our ability to destroy ourselves is the mirror image of our ability to save ourselves“

—  Terence McKenna American ethnobotanist 1946 - 2000
Context: Our ability to destroy ourselves is the mirror image of our ability to save ourselves, and what is lacking is the clear vision of what should be done... What needs to be done is that fundamental, ontological conceptions of reality need to be redone. We need a new language, and to have a new language we must have a new reality... A new reality will generate a new language, a new language will fix a new reality, and make it part of this reality.
