Kurt Tucholsky Quotes and Sayings

I hope you find great value in these Quotes by Kurt Tucholsky from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

Revolution!
The people howls and cries, Freedom,
that's what we're needing!
We've needed it for centuries, our arteries are bleeding.
The stage is shaking, the audience rock.
The whole thing is over by nine o'clock.
- Kurt Tucholsky

revolution is but thought carried into action.
- Emma Goldman

Mind can never be intelligent - only no-mind is intelligent.
Only no-mind is original and radical.
Only no-mind is revolutionary - revolution in action.
The mind gives you a sort of stupor.
Burdened by the memories of the past,
burdened by the projections of the future,
you go on living - at the minimum.
You dont live at the maximum.
Your flame remains very dim.
Once you start dropping thoughts,
the dust that you have collected in the past,
the flame arises - clean, clear, alive, young.
Your whole life becomes a flame,
and a flame without any smoke.
That is what awareness is.
- Osho

 

Art is either plagiarism or revolution.
- Paul Gauguin

Beyond mind, there is an awareness that is intrinsic,
that is not given to you by the outside, and is not an idea -
and there is no experiment up to now
that has found any center in the brain
which corresponds to awareness.
The whole work of meditation is
to make you aware of all that is "mind"
and disidentify yourself from it.
That very separation is the
greatest revolution that can happen to man.
Now you can do and act on only that
which makes you more joyous, fulfills you,
gives you contentment, makes your life a work of art, a beauty.
But this is possible only if the master in you is awake.
- Osho

America's present need is not heroics but healing;
not nostrums but normalcy; not revolution but restoration.
- Warren G. Harding
