Quotations

G.J. Lindemans

G.J. LindemansThe Theosophical Society denies its essence if it allows concomitant purposes to take precedence over what is stated to be its main objective and what is, in fact, the rationale for its existence - Universal Brotherhood.

Theosophy, its Essence and Value, by G.J. Lindemans. (Belgium theosophist and author)





Joy Mills

Joy MillsThe Secret Doctrine is as relevant today as it was a century ago and more ago. It will continue to be relevant so long as there are those individuals willing to engage themselves in the hastening of the human journey toward the Light. That perceiving the Light, they may transmit its warmth and splendor for the healing of all who live. To undertake that enterprise is to become, in truth, conscious cocreators in the making and the remaking of the world.

H.P. Blavatsky

H.P. BlavatskyBe not discouraged, but try, ever keep trying; twenty failures are not irremediable if followed by as many undaunted struggles upward. Is it not so that mountains are climbed?

 

CW 12:503-4 (no. 3 of ES Instructions) by H.P. Blavatsky







Mabel Collins

Mabel CollinsVirtue and wisdom are sublime things, but if they create pride and a consciousness of separateness from the rest of humanity, they are only the snakes of self reappearing in a finer form.

 

Light on the Path, by Mabel Collins







Grace F. Knoche
