Douglas MacArthur

douglas-macarthuA true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions, and the compassion to listen to the needs of others. He does not set out to be a leader, but becomes one by the equality of his actions and the integrity of his intent.

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.

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.

G. de Purucker“Love ye one another” — a beautiful saying this, for it is an appeal to the very core of your nature, to the divine within you, to the inner god, whose essence is a celestial splendour. The essential light of you is almighty love. [as Christ told his disciples]
