„The way to happiness: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry. Live simply, expect little, give much. Scatter sunshine, forget self, think of others. Try this for a week and you will be surprised.“

—  Norman Vincent Peale, kniha The Power of Positive Thinking

„Act in such a way that your heart may be free from hatred.“

—  `Abdu'l-Bahá Son of Bahá'u'lláh and leader of the Bahá'í Faith 1844 - 1921

Zdroj: Promulgation of World Peace, p. 453
Kontext: Act in such a way that your heart may be free from hatred. Let not your heart be offended with anyone. If someone commits an error and wrong toward you, you must instantly forgive him. Do not complain of others. Refrain from reprimanding them, and if you wish to give admonition or advice, let it be offered in such a way that it will not burden the bearer. Turn all your thoughts toward bringing joy to hearts. Beware! Beware! Lest ye offend any heart.

„You are "free" only in one sense: free from education in governing your life yourself, free from self-criticism.“

—  Wilhelm Reich, kniha Listen, Little Man!

Listen, Little Man! (1948)
Kontext: Every physician, shoemaker, mechanic or educator must know his shortcomings if he is to do his work and make his living. For some decades, you have begun to play a governing role on this earth. It is on your thinking and your actions that the future of humanity depends. But your teachers and masters do not tell you how you really think and are; nobody dares to voice the one criticism of you which could make you capable of governing your own fate. You are "free" only in one sense: free from education in governing your life yourself, free from self-criticism.

„It is your false self that keeps you away from your true Self by every trick it knows.“

—  Meher Baba Indian mystic 1894 - 1969

7 Absolute Honesty, p. 8.
The Everything and the Nothing (1963)
Kontext: Absolute honesty is essential in one's search for God (Truth). The subtleties of the Path are finer than a hair. The least hypocrisy becomes a wave that washes one off the Path.
It is your false self that keeps you away from your true Self by every trick it knows. In the guise of honesty this self even deceives itself. For instance your self claims, I love Baba. The fact is, if you really loved Baba you would not be your false self making the self-asserting statement!
