Here are some of her words of wisdom to motivate us.
“Be humble, if thou would’st attain to wisdom. Be humbler still, when wisdom thou hast mastered.”
“Never allow any unnecessary or vain thought to occupy your mind. This is more easily said than done. You cannot make your mind a blank all at once. So in the beginning try to prevent evil or idle thoughts by occupying your mind with the analysis of your own faults, or the contemplation of the Perfect Ones.”
“Do not be afraid of your difficulties.Do not wish you could be in other circumstances than you are. For when you have made the best of an adversity, it becomes the stepping stone to a splendid opportunity.”
“Who is the great man? He who is strongest in patience. He who patiently endures injury, and maintains a blameless life–he is a man indeed!”
“Neither success nor safety is to be found outside self-development.”
“There is no religion higher than Truth.”
“Knowledge increases in proportion to its use; that is, the more we teach the more we learn.”
“Help Nature and work on with her; and Nature will regard thee as one of her creators . . . she will lay bare before thy gaze the treasures hidden in the depths of her pure virgin bosom.”
“Everything in the Universe, throughout all its kingdoms, is conscious: i.e., endowed with a consciousness of its own kind and on its own plane of perception.”
“To seek to achieve political reforms before we have effected a reform in human nature, is like putting new wine into old bottles.”
