I hold that the mark of a genuine idea is that its
by Gottfried Leibniz

I hold that the mark of a genuine idea is that its
possibility can be proved,
either a priori by conceiving its cause or reason,
or a posteriori when experience teaches us that it is in fact in nature.
- Gottfried Leibniz

I also take it as granted that every created thing,
and consequently the created monad also,
is subject to change, and indeed that this change is continual in each one.
- Gottfried Leibniz

But in simple substances the influence of one monad
over another is ideal only.
- Gottfried Leibniz

Music is the pleasure the human mind experiences from
counting without being aware that it is counting.
- Gottfried Leibniz

 

When a truth is necessary, the reason for it can be found by analysis,
that is, by resolving it into simpler ideas and truths
until the primary ones are reached.
- Gottfried Leibniz

It follows from what we have just said,
that the natural changes of monads come from an internal principle,
since an external cause would be unable to influence their inner being.
- Gottfried Leibniz

For since it is impossible for a created monad to have
a physical influence on the inner nature of another,
this is the only way in which one can be dependent on another.
- Gottfried Leibniz

I do not conceive of any reality at all as without genuine unity.
- Gottfried Leibniz

Indeed every monad must be different from every other.
For there are never in nature two beings,
which are precisely alike, and in which it is not possible
to find some difference which is internal,
or based on some intrinsic quality.
- Gottfried Leibniz

Finally there are simple ideas of which no definition can be given;
there are also axioms or postulates,
or in a word primary principles, which cannot be proved
and have no need of proof.
- Gottfried Leibniz

It can have its effect only through the intervention of God,
inasmuch as in the ideas of God a monad rightly demands that God,
in regulating the rest from the beginning of things,
should have regard to itself.
- Gottfried Leibniz

There are also two kinds of truths: truth of reasoning and truths of fact.
Truths of reasoning are necessary and their opposite is impossible;
those of fact are contingent and their opposite is possible.
- Gottfried Leibniz

Now where there are no parts, there neither extension,
nor shape, nor divisibility is possible.
And these monads are the true atoms of nature and,
in a word, the elements of things.
- Gottfried Leibniz

Whence it follows that God is absolutely perfect,
since perfection is nothing but magnitude of positive reality,
in the strict sense, setting aside the limits or bounds
in things which are limited.
- Gottfried Leibniz

I maintain also that substances, whether material or immaterial,
cannot be conceived in their bare essence without any activity,
activity being of the essence of substance in general.
- Gottfried Leibniz

The ultimate reason of things must lie in a necessary substance,
in which the differentiation of the changes only exists
eminently as in their source;
and this is what we call God.
- Gottfried Leibniz

Men act like brutes in so far as the sequences of their
perceptions arise through the principle of memory only,
like those empirical physicians who have mere practice without theory.
- Gottfried Leibniz

This is why the ultimate reason of things must lie
in a necessary substance,
in which the differentiation of the changes only exists
eminently as in their source;
and this is what we call God.
- Gottfried Leibniz

Every tomorrow has two handles.
We can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety
or the handle of faith.
- Henry Ward Beecher

Trust in the Light.
Darkness is not a force -
it is merely the absence of light.
Observe that when a light is brought to a dark place,
the darkness disappears.
Sadness is similar -
when joy is brought to suffering,
the sadness disappears.
Open yourself to the Light!
Hold back nothing,
Trust in the Light.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Our loved ones -
whether by blood, by marriage, or by choice -
are delicate treasures.
If we hold them too close, they break -
as a butterfly would.
By honoring and enjoying
the freedom of our loved ones,
we gain our own freedom.
Have the courage to trust that
the beautiful butterflies of your life
will return - or not - as life intends.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Hold on... Joyfully.
Holding-on does not have to be
a desperate teeth-gritting kind of holding-on.
Holding-on can be a joyful
"this is just the nature of Life,
so I may as well enjoy it"
kind of holding-on.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Our grandchildren's grandchildren will shake their heads in shame
at some of the beliefs that we hold most dear today -
the question is, which ones?

Look the world straight in the eye.

If you have to have it, it's ego.
If you have to not have it, it's ego.
Hold life lightly and it will deliver what you need
and release what you don't.
- Alan Cohen

If you wish to see the truth,
then hold no opinion for or against.
- Osho

We must build dikes of courage
to hold back the flood of fear.

May the road rise up to meet you,
may the wind be ever at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face
and the rain fall softly on your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of his hand.
- Irish Blessing

avoid putting yourself before others
and you can become a leader among men.

Each of us is burdened by an unlimited number of
expectations (demands) that we hold for the actions of others.
We "know" that there is a right way to do things,

Usually, we are unaware that we merely
have a strong opinion and point-of-view,
and are sure that we know how everything is supposed to be.

- Mary Anne Radmacher

When does a belief bring out the best in you?
When does a belief hold you prisoner to yesterday
and limit your options for designing a great future?
Test your beliefs with as much objectivity
as you can bring to the subject.
Be willing to let go of those beliefs
that represent your parents' opinions,
or your communities opinions, rather than your own.
Those beliefs that withstand rigorous testing,
should become the foundation of your being -
your reason for living.
Take action on those beliefs.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Release your burdens - your fears, regrets,
guilts, shames, embarrassments, angers.
One by one, pick up each memory or fear that troubles you,

Release each incident from your past that still bothers you.
Release each fear - your fears about your health,
your family, your job, and every other fear.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Taking inspiration from the powerful vision of my future,

as I weather the storms of life.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

We were given:
Two hands to hold.
Two legs to walk.
Two eyes to see.
Two ears to listen.
But why only one heart?
Because the other was given to someone else.
For us to find.

The Sweetest Strawberry:
A man traveling across a field encountered a tiger.
He fled, the tiger after him.
Coming to a precipice,
he caught hold of the root of a wild vine
and swung himself over the edge.
The tiger sniffed at him from above.
Trembling, the man looked down to where,
far below, another tiger was waiting to eat him.
Only the vine sustained him.
Two mice, one white and one black,
little by little started to gnaw away the vine.
The man then saw a luscious strawberry near him.
Grasping the vine with one hand,
he plucked the strawberry with the other.
How sweet it tasted.
- Zen Koan
