Just illustrates that LRH stole old stuff. Cicero was even before MY time. :)

"Comparing Scientology to a motorcycle gang is a gross, unpardonable insult to bikers everywhere. Even at our worst, we are never as bad as Scientology."

"The question that should be first and foremost on everyone’s mind as much as possible is “Ok, here I am. On a planet, in a body, shit for memory and no real certainty as to what’s going on. So what now? What comes next?” A humbling question indeed. And the second that a being forgets this question, or just forgets to question everything, then that person is just that much asleep."

"Come come whoever you are!
Wanderer, worshipper, lover of leaving!
Come, even if you have broken your vows a thousand times!
Ours is not a caravan of despair.
Come, come again."

"Ever since happiness heard your name,
it has been running through the streets
trying to find you.
And several times in the last week,
God Himself has even come to my
door, asking for your address!
Once, I said
'God, I thought You knew everything.
Why are You asking me where Your lovers are?'
And the Beloved replied,
'Indeed, Hafiz, I do know everything-
But it is fun playing dumb once in a while,
And I love intimate chat and the warmth
of your heart's fire.'"

-Hafiz
(tr. by Daniel Ladinsky)

'Tis true, my form is something odd,
but blaming me is blaming God,
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.

If I could reach from pole to pole
or grasp the ocean with a span,
I would be measured by the soul -
The mind's the standard of the man.

Isaac Watts (1674-1748 )

A favourite poem of the 'Elephant Man', Joseph Carey Merrick.

I live my life
In growing orbits
Which move out over the things of the world.
Perhaps I can never achieve the last
But that will be my attempt
I am circling around God
Around the ancient tower
And I have been circling for a thousand years
And I still don't know
If I am a falcon
Or a storm
Or a great song.

-Maria Rainer Rilke
"For the Hours of Prayer"
