On Good Deeds

'Is this one of our tribe or a stranger?' is the question of the narrow-minded; but to those of a noble disposition the world is but one family. - Hitopadesa (Hindu Scripture)

Be true and honest in all you say, and seriously earnest in all you do, and then, even if your country is one inhabited by barbarians, South or North, you will make your way. - Confucius, The Analects

On Making Friends

The only way to have a friend is to be one. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

On the Mind

It is the mind that makes one wise or ignorant, bound or emancipated. One is holy because of the mind, one is a sinner because of the mind, and it is the mind that makes one virtuous. - Ramakrishna, The Sayings of Ramakrishna

Be careful of how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts. - Hebrew Bible / Old Testament, Proverbs 4:23 (TEV)
