Five Quotes from Jiddu Krishnamurti




"A man who is not afraid is not aggressive, a man who has no sense of fear of any kind is really a free, a peaceful man."

"In oneself lies the whole world and if you know how to look and learn, the door is there and the key is in your hand. Nobody on earth can give you either the key or the door to open, except yourself."

"There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning."

"We all want to be famous people, and the moment we want to be something we are no longer free."

"You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it. That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies, that is why you must sing and dance, and write poems and suffer and understand, for all that is life."
