The Gospel of Thomas
"Jesus said, 'Those who seek should not stop seeking until they find. When they find, they will be disturbed. When they are disturbed, they will marvel, and will reign over all.'"
"Cattle die and kinsmen die,
thyself too soon must die,
but one thing never, I ween, will die, --
the doom on each one dead."
"There is no salvation in becoming adapted to a world which is crazy!"
"Confusion is a word we have invented for an order which is not understood."
"My conclusion on Freewill and predestination is that they are identical."
"The truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end; there it is."
"You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life."
"Continuous effort - not strength or intelligence - is the key to unlocking our potential."
"If you have an important point to make, don't try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time - a tremendous whack."
"Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never — in nothing, great or small, large or petty — never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy."
"To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often."
"Solitary trees, if they grow at all, grow strong."
"When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us."
