„We live, but we do not feel the land beneath us,
Ten steps away and our words cannot be heard.“

„In love, no one can harm anyone else; we are each of us responsible for our own feelings and cannot blame someone else for what we feel.“

—  Paulo Coelho, Eleven Minutes
Context: In love, no one can harm anyone else; we are each of us responsible for our own feelings and cannot blame someone else for what we feel. It hurt when I lost each of the various men I fell in love with. Now, though, I am convinced that no one loses anyone, because no one owns anyone. That is the true experience of freedom: having the most important thing in the world without owning it. p. 97.

„The moral law is the expression of our inmost nature, and when we live in consonance with it we feel that we are living out our true being.“

—  Felix Adler German American professor of political and social ethics, rationalist, and lecturer 1851 - 1933
Context: An ideal is a port toward which we resolve to steer. We may not reach it. The mere fact that our goal is definitely located does not suffice to conduct us thither. But surely we shall thus stand a better chance of making port in the end than if we drift about aimlessly, the sport of winds and tides, without having decided in our own minds in what direction we ought to bend our course. The moral law is the expression of our inmost nature, and when we live in consonance with it we feel that we are living out our true being. Section 6 : Higher Life
