1. Those only have had great influence in the world who have recognized the spiritual tendency of the time in which they lived and have directed their free action and thought into that tendency.
2. Man lives on earth not once, but three times: the first stage of his life is his continual sleep; the second, sleeping and waking by turns; the third, waking forever.
3. A Goethe, a Schiller, a Napoleon, a Luther, still live among  us, thinking and acting in us, as awakened creative individuals…
4. The mind of man is alike indistinguishably his own possession and that of the higher intelligences, and what proceeds from it belongs equally to both always, but in different ways.
5.  Have the best constantly in mind, and be careful only that the memory that you yourself are to leave behind shall be a blessing to you in the future.

Jesus Christ Quotes: 1. A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 2. Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 3. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 4. Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. 5. I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. 6. Let me into your lives, your world. Live on me, so that you may become truly alive. 7. Do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Let the day’s own trouble be sufficient for the day. 8. For what shall it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his soul?  9. Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 10. But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first. 11. If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. 12. If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. 13. Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. 14. With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. 15. Judge not, that ye be not judged. 16.  Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. 17. Arise, and be not afraid.  18. Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
