  21. “No one is completely bad in this world. However bad someone is said to be, there will be something good in him. One of you could see the good in a murderer, a robber, and a prostitute. If there is goodness in us, we will also see it on others. Those are the kind of eyes we need.”
  22. “Time is always favorable, but we are not favoring time, that is all. Both favor and adversity are within us only. Not knowing this, human beings become slaves to their circumstances.”
  23. “The common expression is ‘I love you.’ But instead of ‘I love you,’ it would be better to say, ‘I am love — I am the embodiment of pure love.’ Remove the I and you, and you will find that there is only love. It is as if love is imprisoned between the I and you. Remove the I and you, for they are unreal; they are self-imposed walls that don’t exist. The gulf between I and you is the ego. When the ego is removed the distance disappears and the I and you also disappear. They merge to become one — and that is love. You lend the I and you their reality. Withdraw your support and they will disappear. Then you will realise, not that ‘I love you,’ but that ‘I am that all-embracing love.'”
  24. “This little world of ours should evolve until it becomes the whole universe. As it grows, we can see our problems slowly dissolving away.”
  25. “When there are no desires, there are no sorrows. We must be able to love without expecting anything in return, or without expecting anything from anyone else. We must always be thinking that we are the servants of all.”
