Top Devotee Quotes

Devotee Quotes By A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

When a pure devotee or spiritual master speak, what he says should be accepted as having been directly spoken by the Supreme Personality of Godhead in the Parampara System. — A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

Devotee Quotes By Joe Carnahan

To me, still my favorite 3D film is 'Dial M for Murder.' I thought that was great. Hitchcock used it, could put you in the room, which I thought was fantastic, but I'm still not a devotee of 3D. — Joe Carnahan

Devotee Quotes By Radhanath Swami

For a devotee death opens door for liberation but for a non-devotee death is end of everything. — Radhanath Swami

Devotee Quotes By Jaggi Vasudev

A devotee has no agenda of his own. For him, the object of devotion is everything. — Jaggi Vasudev

Devotee Quotes By Swami Vivekananda

The Bhakta (devotee) renounces all little loves for the almighty and omnipresent love. — Swami Vivekananda

Devotee Quotes By L.M. Montgomery

I am simply a 'book drunkard.' Books have the same irresistible temptation for me that liquor has for its devotee. I cannot withstand them. — L.M. Montgomery

Devotee Quotes By Alan Jacobs

I mentioned early in this book the kind of rereading distinctive of a fan
the Tolkien addict, say, or the devotee of Jane Austen or Trollope or the Harry Potter books. The return to such books is often motivated by a desire to dwell for a time in a self-contained fictional universe, with its own boundaries and its own rules. (It is a moot question whether Austen and Trollope's first readers were drawn to their novels for these reasons, but their readers today often are.) Such rereading is not purely a matter of escapism, even though that is one reason for its attraction: we should note that it's not what readers are escaping from but that they are escaping into that counts most. Most of us do not find fictional worlds appealing because we find our own lives despicable, though censorious people often make that assumption. Auden once wrote that "there must always be ... escape-art, for man needs escape as he needs food and deep sleep." The sleeper does not disdain consciousness. — Alan Jacobs

Devotee Quotes By Lionel Blue

For a devotee or lover, the being, worshipped or loved, will always be the only one for her or him. — Lionel Blue

Devotee Quotes By Ramakrishna

If a householder is a genuine devotee, he performs his duties without attachment; he surrenders the fruit of his work to God - his gain or loss, his pleasure or pain. Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna (Abridged) — Ramakrishna

Devotee Quotes By Ted Nugent

An uninhibited, Chuck Berry devotee but experimented with and broke a lot of ground on feedback techniques and solid variations in tonal and dissonant utilizations. I'm one of the best guitarists in the world, and I play with great emotion. — Ted Nugent

Devotee Quotes By Ramakrishna

At a certain stage in the path of devotion, the devotee finds satisfaction in God with form, and at another stage, in God without it. — Ramakrishna

Devotee Quotes By Greg Chappell

He must be the most singlehanded devotee cricket has ever seen. Cricket has taken up so much of his life that at times you would wonder what is he going to do once he gives up the game. — Greg Chappell

Devotee Quotes By Barbara Kingsolver

She married him two years ago for love, or so she thought, and he's a good enough man but a devotee of household silence. His idea of marriage is to spray WD-40 on anything that squeaks ... The quiet only subsides when Harland sleeps and his tonsils make up for lost time. — Barbara Kingsolver

Devotee Quotes By Horace Walpole

Fashion is fortunately no law but to its devotees. — Horace Walpole

Devotee Quotes By Anonymous

It might also have helped their cause. Perhaps it is a sign of how eternal Britons once considered their absurd class distinctions that they were comfortable with such mixing. Nonetheless, it was positive - as that devotee of the Cheshire Hounds, Friedrich Engels, appreciated. The author of the "Communist Manifesto" of 1848 considered fox-hunting "the greatest physical pleasure I know", the apogee of English culture and, less convincingly, a source of useful ideas for managing the revolution. What lessons should be drawn from this farrago? The obvious one is that politicians make the laws they deserve. Ill-conceived and illogical, the ban is unworkable. It allows hunts to follow an artificial scent-trail - because an outright ban could criminalise anyone taking his pet dog for a walk in the country. And because it would not be illegal for that pooch to — Anonymous

Devotee Quotes By Henry David Thoreau

The fact which interests us most is the life of the naturalist. The purest science is still biographical. Nothing will dignify and elevate science while it is sundered so wholly from the moral life of its devotee. — Henry David Thoreau

Devotee Quotes By Abu-Sa'id Abul-Khayr

The perfect mystic is not an ecstatic devotee lost in contemplation of Oneness, nor a saintly recluse shunning all commerce with mankind, but "the true saint" goes in and out amongst the people and eats and sleeps with them and buys and sells in the market and marries and takes part in social intercourse, and never forgets God for a single moment. — Abu-Sa'id Abul-Khayr

Devotee Quotes By A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

Since one cannot visually experience the presence of the Supersoul, He appears before us as a liberated devotee. Such a spiritual master is none other than Krishna himself. — A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

Devotee Quotes By Radhe Maa

It is the devotee's job to chant God's name. It is God's business to keep count. — Radhe Maa

Devotee Quotes By Walter Isaacson

Steve Jobs's attitude toward wealth was complex. He was an antimaterialistic hippie who capitalized on the inventions of a friend who wanted to give them away for free, and he was a Zen devotee who made a pilgrimage to India and then decided that his calling was to create a business. And yet somehow these attitudes seemed to weave together rather than conflict. — Walter Isaacson

Devotee Quotes By Bhakti Charu Swami

The real wealth in Krishna Consciousness is Humility. We don't have to become a big devotee rather we have to become a Humble Devotee. — Bhakti Charu Swami

Devotee Quotes By Radhanath Swami

A devotee's life should be so exemplary that it increases the faith upon other devotees. — Radhanath Swami

Devotee Quotes By Elizabeth Gilbert

And naturally I was reading in the library a few days later from a book about the Indian saint Sri Ramakrishna, and I stumbled upon a story about a seeker who once came to see the great master and admitted to him that she feared she was not a good enough devotee, feared that she did not love God enough. And the saint said, "Is there nothing you love?" The woman admitted that she adored her young nephew more than anything else on earth. The saint said, "There, then. He is your Krishna, your beloved. In your service to your nephew, you are serving God. — Elizabeth Gilbert

Devotee Quotes By Gautama Buddha

He that distributeth not That which he hath received
His food, his drink, his sustenance
Unto devotee, brahman, beggar, wayfarer
Such a low man as he, they say, is like Unto a lack of rain. — Gautama Buddha

Devotee Quotes By Mary Garden

I was a new devotee of Eastern mysticism and even though I did not join that particular group, I could well have done. They seemed a bit extreme but I regarded myself as not quite ready. — Mary Garden

Devotee Quotes By Sinclair Lewis

Babbitt looked up irritably from the comic strips in the Evening Advocate. They composed his favorite literature and art, these illustrated chronicles in which Mr. Mutt hit Mr. Jeff with a rotten egg, and Mother corrected Father's vulgarisms by means of a rolling-pin. With the solemn face of a devotee, breathing heavily through his open mouth, he plodded nightly through every picture, and during the rite he detested interruptions. — Sinclair Lewis

Devotee Quotes By Debasish Mridha

I am the love.
I am the slave of love.
I worship love.
I adore unconditional love.
I am the pure devotee of love.
My heart and eyes are the symbols of love.
Love has the inconceivable innumerable attribute.
Love is the indivisible, infinite, and limitless truth.
Love is the supreme with most dazzling splendor.
Love is eternal, blissful, spiritual, and tender. — Debasish Mridha

Devotee Quotes By Paramahansa Yogananda

Die, then!" This alarming counsel split the air. "Die if you must, Mukunda! Never believe that you live by the power of food and not by the power of God! He who has created every form of nourishment, He who has bestowed appetite, will inevitably see that His devotee is maintained. Do not imagine that rice sustains you nor that money or men support you. Could they aid if the Lord withdraws your life breath? They are His instruments merely. Is it by any skill of yours that food digests in your stomach? Use the sword of your discrimination, Mukunda! Cut through the chains of agency and perceive the Single Cause! — Paramahansa Yogananda

Devotee Quotes By Friedrich Nietzsche

If you wish to strive for peace of soul and pleasure, then believe; if you wish to be a devotee of truth, then inquire. — Friedrich Nietzsche

Devotee Quotes By John Cleese

We adored it, and discussed it, and swapped jokes from it, and it made us feel more alive. In some way, it was cathartic: it exhilarated us by lifting us up above our everyday frustrations and boredoms. It gave us a liberating perspective on this odd event unfolding around us, called 'our life.' And when, years later, I became bewildered by the reception of Monty Python by some of our looniest fans, I suddenly realised they were experiencing exactly the combination of emotions that had rendered me such a devotee of the Goons, and so I was able to forgive them. — John Cleese

Devotee Quotes By Sadhguru

The fundamentalist impulse can creep up on a devotee in many ways. Devotion is the quickest path to the divine, but it also has its pitfalls. The tendency to turn literal, or dogmatic, or to believe that one's path or one's notion of the divine is superior to all others is a seductive challenge. This — Sadhguru

Devotee Quotes By Munindra Misra

Polluted who hears not voice of learning, gives no charity,
Who sees not pure devotee and walks not to places holy;
Who fills with things by crooked practices unhesitatingly,
And who ever holds his head high in arrogance and vanity.
[212] 12.4 Chanakya — Munindra Misra

Devotee Quotes By Claire Sandy

She was a doyenne of the ready-meal, a devotee of the frozen pea, and believed takeaway to be more beneficial to modern humanity than penicillin — Claire Sandy

Devotee Quotes By Rainer J. Hanshe

Writing, as most art, is considered to be essentially superfluous. Who is an artist before a surgeon? Or a scientist? But the fact that tyrants and political forces of every age have been threatened by art again and again, condemned it as degenerate or poisonous, and have silenced, brutalized, or murdered artists because of their work only serves to illustrate how significant art is, that it is our one greatest power. I would even go so far as to say that the tyrant 'understands' art more than the devotee, for the latter is generally too 'pious' and adoring, almost like a simple-minded believer overwrought by faith who simply loves and finds everything 'great,' whereas the former suffers the transformative threat of art more, is even endangered by it, hence their terror. — Rainer J. Hanshe

Devotee Quotes By Megan Whalen Turner

My god is not a ten-devotee-to-the-average-dozen, got-a-priest-on-every-corner kind of god who is always being badgered by his worshipers. He keeps a very close eye on me, and what may look completely stupid to you is merely a demonstration of my faith. — Megan Whalen Turner

Devotee Quotes By Sushil Singh

On the Sivaratri day after performing the routine, the devotee shall go to the temple of Siva and perform worship. — Sushil Singh

Devotee Quotes By Anandamayi Ma

Single-minded devotion engenders deep thought, which expresses itself in action. The Lord's Light descends on the devotee, His power awakens in him and, as a result, profound inner inquiry blossoms forth. — Anandamayi Ma

Devotee Quotes By Ramakrishna

God reveals Himself to a devotee who feels drawn to Him by the combined force of these three attractions: the attraction of worldly possessions for the worldly man, the child's attraction for its mother, and the husband's attraction for the chaste wife. If one feels drawn to Him by the combined force of these three attractions, then through it one can attain Him. — Ramakrishna

Devotee Quotes By Mahatma Gandhi

A devotee of Rama may be said to be the same as the steadfast one (sthitaprajnya) of the Gita. — Mahatma Gandhi

Devotee Quotes By Bertrand Russell

Experience has taught me a technique for dealing with such people [ ... ] I counter the devotees of the Great Pyramid by adoration of the Sphinx; and the devotee of nuts by pointing out that hazelnuts and walnuts are as deleterious as other foods and only Brazil nuts should be tolerated. But when I was younger I had not yet acquired this technique, with the result that my contacts with cranks were sometimes alarming. — Bertrand Russell

Devotee Quotes By Michael Murphy

I was a professor of penis, a connoisseur of cock, a devotee of dick, an epicure of erections. I had made it my life's work to worship the male member. And what a member this one was. — Michael Murphy

Devotee Quotes By Arthur Koestler

Satan, on the contrary, is thin, ascetic and a fanatical devotee of logic. He reads Machiavelli, Ignatius of Loyola, Marx and Hegel; he is cold and unmerciful to mankind, out of a kind of mathematical mercifulness. He is damned always to do that which is most repugnant to him: to become a slaughterer, in order to abolish slaughtering, to sacrifice lambs so that no more lambs may be slaughtered, to whip people with knouts so that they may learn not to let themselves be whipped, to strip himself of every scruple in the name of a higher scrupulousness, and to challenge the hatred of mankind because of his love for it
an abstract and geometric love. — Arthur Koestler

Devotee Quotes By Dietrich Bonhoeffer

It is only the cynic who claims "to speak the truth" at all times and in all places to all men in the same way, but who, in fact, displays nothing but a lifeless image of the truth ... He dons the halo of the fanatical devotee of truth who can make no allowance for human weaknesses; but, in fact, he is destroying the living truth between men. He wounds shame, desecrates mystery, breaks confidence, betrays the community in which he lives, and laughs arrogantly at the devastation he has wrought and at the human weakness which "cannot bear the truth. — Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Devotee Quotes By Alfred De Musset

The life of a devotee is a crusade of which the heart is the Holy Land. — Alfred De Musset

Devotee Quotes By Tanith Lee

Im a devotee of Dracula, which was a pathfinder in horror and vampire fiction. — Tanith Lee

Devotee Quotes By Wildbow

Newter, do you know what a devotee is?"

Newter shook his head.

"It is a slang term for someone who is attracted to people with disabilities, because of the disability. I think it is about power, attraction to someone because they are weak somehow. I think it likely that this Laura sees me as weak because of the way I look, the way I may have trouble day to day, and this is compelling to her in a similar way to how a cripple or a blind man might be to a devotee. This does not appeal to me. — Wildbow

Devotee Quotes By Christopher Hitchens

If you have ever argued with a religious devotee, for example, you will have noticed that his self-esteem and pride are involved in the dispute and that you are asking him to give up something more than a point in argument. — Christopher Hitchens

Devotee Quotes By Alexander Pushkin

O flowers, country, love, inaction,
O fields! I am your devotee!
I always note with satisfaction
Onegin's difference from me,
Lest somewhere a sarcastic reader
Or publisher or such-like breeder
Of complicated calumny
Discerns my physiognomy
And shamelessly repeats the fable
That I have crudely versified
Myself like Byron, bard of pride,
As if we were no longer able
To write a poem and discuss
A subject not concerning us. — Alexander Pushkin

Devotee Quotes By Wei Wu Wei

Disciples and devotees ... what are most of them doing? Worshipping the teapot instead of drinking the tea! — Wei Wu Wei

Devotee Quotes By H. Rap Brown

My name is Imam Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, the former H. Rap Brown. I am a devoted servant of Allah, and an unwavering devotee to His cause. For more than 30 years, I have been tormented and persecuted by my enemies for reasons of race and belief. — H. Rap Brown

Devotee Quotes By Dada Bhagwan

Here', I am a disciple just as you are. The one you see is not 'Dada Bhagwan'; it is 'A. M. Patel', a Patidaar from the town of Bhadran. The one sitting within is 'Dada Bhagwan'. 'I' myself make everyone do jai jai kar of Dada Bhagwan [sing praise of Dada Bhagwan]. Therefore, 'I' too am a devotee, as are you. — Dada Bhagwan

Devotee Quotes By Prem Prakash

What is important is not the specific manner in which God is worshiped but the degree to which the devotee is filled with love. (48-49) — Prem Prakash

Devotee Quotes By Swami Vivekananda

Although a man has not studied a single system of philosophy, although he does not believe in any God, and never has believed, although he has not prayed even once in his whole life, if the simple power of good actions has brought him to that state where he is ready to give up his life and all else for others, he has arrived at the same point to which the religious man will come through his prayers and the philosopher through his knowledge; and so you may find that the philosopher, the worker, and the devotee, all meet at one point, that one point being self-abnegation. — Swami Vivekananda

Devotee Quotes By Paramahansa Yogananda

The Bhagavad-Gita is where God Himself talks to His devotee Arjuna. — Paramahansa Yogananda

Devotee Quotes By Susan Hale

I am an incorrigible devotee to solitude, and am never so cheerful, I believe, or so unruffled by small difficulties as when I'm alone. There's a sort of obligation to be polite and pleasant to yourself when nobody else is round ... — Susan Hale

Devotee Quotes By Theodor W. Adorno

Since death, as the existential horizon of Dasein, is considered absolute, it becomes the absolute in the form of an icon. There is here a regression to the cult of death; thus the jargon has from the beginning gotten along well with military manners. Now, as earlier, that answer is valid which Horkheimer gave to an enthusiastic female devotee of Heidegger's. She said that Heidegger had finally, at least, once again placed men before death; Horkheimer replied that Ludendorff had taken care of that much better. — Theodor W. Adorno

Devotee Quotes By Radhe Maa

God and devotee are bound for ever in ropes of love — Radhe Maa

Devotee Quotes By A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

One must execute devotional service under the guidance of a devotee or directly under the guidance of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. It is not possible, however, to train oneself without guidance from the spiritual master. — A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

Devotee Quotes By Radhanath Swami

Do not offend devotees or even non-devotees. Because all those whom we know as devotees today were once not devotees. — Radhanath Swami

Devotee Quotes By Mahatma Gandhi

My doctrine means that I must identify myself with life, with everything that lives, that I must share the majesty of life in the presence of God. The sum-total of this life is God.. Man is not at peace with himself until he has become like unto God. The endeavor to reach this state is the supreme, the only ambition worth having. And this is self-realisation. This self-realisation is the subject of the Gita, as it is of all scriptures ... to be a real devotee is to realise oneself. Self-realisation is not something apart. — Mahatma Gandhi

Devotee Quotes By David Hume

The worst speculative Sceptic ever I knew, was a much better Man than the best superstitious Devotee & Bigot."
"I must inform you, too, that this was the way of thinking of the Antients on this Subject. If a Man made Proffession of Philosophy, whatever his Sect was, they alaways expected to find more Regulaity in his Life and Manners, than in those of ignorant & illiterate. — David Hume

Devotee Quotes By Hazrat Inayat Khan

The sighing of the devotee clears a path for him into the world unseen, and his tears wash away the sins of ages. All revelation follows the ecstasy; all knowledge that a book can never contain, that a language can never express, nor a teacher teach, comes to him of itself. — Hazrat Inayat Khan

Devotee Quotes By Radhanath Swami

The essence of Bhagavad Gita is that we should always think of Krsna, become His devotee, worship him and offer homage unto him. — Radhanath Swami

Devotee Quotes By Jaggi Vasudev

Devotion as an act is vulgar. Devotion as a way of life is wonderful. If you are a great devotee, it is ugly. If you are devout, it is beautiful. — Jaggi Vasudev

Devotee Quotes By Karen Blixen

No," he said after a pause, "the true art of the gods is the comic. The comic is a condescension of the divine to the world of man; it is the sublime vision, which cannot be studied, but must ever be celestially granted. In the comic the gods see their own being reflected as in a mirror, and while the tragic poet is bound by strict laws, they will allow the comic artist a freedom as unlimited as their own. They do not even withhold their own existence from his sports. Jove may favor Lucianos of Samosata. As long as your mockery is in true godly taste you may mock at the gods and still remain a sound devotee. But in pitying, or condoling with your god, you deny and annihilate him, and such is the most horrible of atheisms. — Karen Blixen

Devotee Quotes By A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

A devotee should be fixed in the conclusion that, the spiritual master cannot be subject to criticism and should never be considered equal to a common man. — A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

Devotee Quotes By Rajneesh

Devotion means for the total; it is never for Rama, never for Krishna. Of course, Rama and Krishna are implied in the total, but it is never for a chosen one. Love is always for the chosen one, devotion is for the whole. So you cannot be a devotee of Rama. If you are for Rama, you are only a lover; and when you are a lover, then competition is bound to be there. Then Krishna will be a competitor, and Christ will be a competitor, and the same jealousies, the same conflicts, and all the same nonsense will follow. It has followed. — Rajneesh

Devotee Quotes By Amitav Ghosh

Nabadwip, a centre of piety and learning consecrated to the memory of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu - saint, mystic, and devotee of Sri Krishna. — Amitav Ghosh

Devotee Quotes By Chelsea Clinton

I'm a big health food freak and a vegetarian devotee. — Chelsea Clinton

Devotee Quotes By Ramakrishna

Bhakti is the one essential thing.
To be sure, God exists in all beings.
Who, then is a devotee? He whose mind dwells on God.
But this is not possible as long as one has egotism and vanity.
The water of God's grace cannot collect
on the high mound of egotism. It runs down. — Ramakrishna

Devotee Quotes By Halldor Laxness

In his contradictions he was as much an enigma as the country itself: a religious devotee out of spite at the soullessness of men who thought of nothing but dogs and sheep, a scientific breeder of sheep because of his contempt for sheep, the Icelandic pastor of a thousand years' folk-stories, his presence alone was a comfortable reassurance that all was as it should be. — Halldor Laxness

Devotee Quotes By Anna Journey

I'm a compulsive enjamber. I'm drawn to half-meanings created by the line, so that's definitely an element of craft that's always on my mind. And I'm a big devotee of the short line, of couplets and tercets, and of irregular stanzas with lots of white space. I've got to give the dense language room to breathe! — Anna Journey

Devotee Quotes By Billy Graham

Covetousness puts money above manhood. It shackles its devotee and makes him its victim. It hardens the heart and deadens the noble impulses and destroys the vital qualities of life. — Billy Graham

Devotee Quotes By William Butler Yeats

The soldier takes pride in saluting his Captain,
The devotee proffers a knee to his Lord,
Some back a mare thrown from a thoroughbred,
Troy backed its Helen, Troy died and adored;
Great nations blossom above,
A slave bows down to a slave. — William Butler Yeats

Devotee Quotes By Mahatma Gandhi

A devotee of Truth may not do anything in deference to convention. He must always hold himself open to correction, and whenever he discovers himself to be wrong he must confess it at all costs and atone for it. — Mahatma Gandhi

Devotee Quotes By Hazrat Inayat Khan

Love is like the fire;
its glow is devotion,
its flame is wisdom,
its smoke is attachment,
and its ashes detachment.
Flame rises from glow,
so it is with wisdom,
which rises from devotion.
When love's fire produces its flame
it illuminates the devotee's path in life like a torch,
and all darkness vanishes. — Hazrat Inayat Khan

Devotee Quotes By Julia Cameron

Writing-and this is the big secret-wants to be written. Writing loves a writer the way God loves a true devotee. Writing will fill your heart if you let it. It will fill your pages and help to fill your life. — Julia Cameron

Devotee Quotes By Ramakrishna

As for me, I consider myself as a speck of the dust of the devotee's feet. — Ramakrishna

Devotee Quotes By Bertrand Russell

In the first place, there is no point whatever in being able to spell anything. Shakespeare and Milton could not spell; Marie Corelli and Alfred Austen could. Spelling is thought desirable partly for snobbish reasons, as an easy way of distinguishing the "educated" from the "uneducated"; partly, like correct clothes, as a part of herd domination; partly because the devotee of natural law feels pain in the spectacle of any sphere in which individual liberty remains. — Bertrand Russell

Devotee Quotes By Rajneesh

Devotion has its own strange ways. It is not something rational, logical, something that can be explained to you. But it is something, if you go on growing from a student into a disciple, from a disciple into a devotee, and you come so close to the master that there is no distinction at all. — Rajneesh

Devotee Quotes By Oswald Chambers

The Lord Himself is the one standard of conduct and character in the New Testament. People do not object to a man or a woman becoming outwardly holy, but they do object to his or her becoming a personal devotee of Jesus Christ. — Oswald Chambers

Devotee Quotes By Chanakya

What good is a cow that neither gives milk nor conceives? Similarly, what is the value of the birth of a son if he becomes neither learned nor a pure devotee of the Lord? — Chanakya

Devotee Quotes By Ram Dass

Once I was chastising Maharajji for giving photos to people who were worldly and didn't care about him. He said, "You don't understand me. If I tell a man he is a great bhakta (devotee). I am planting a seed. If a person already has the seed planted and growing, why should I plant another?" I said, "You are telling these drunkards, liars, and dacoits that they are real bhaktas. They will just go home and carry on their old behaviors." Maharajji said, "Some of them will remember what I said of them, and it will make them want to develop this quality in themselves. If ten out of a hundred are inspired in this way, it is a very good thing. — Ram Dass

Devotee Quotes By Peter J. Carroll

There is no part of one's beliefs about oneself which cannot be modified by sufficiently powerful psychological techniques. There is nothing about oneself which cannot be taken away or changed. The proper stimuli can, if correctly applied, turn communists into fascists, saints into devils, the meek into heroes, and vice-versa. There is no sovereign sanctuary within ourseles which represents our real nature. There is nobody at home in the internal fortress. Everything we cherish as our ego, everything we believe in, is just what we have cobbled together out of the accident of our birth and subsequent experiences. With drugs, brainwashing, and other techniques of extreme persuasion, we can quite readily make a man a devotee of a different ideology, the patriot of a different country, or the follower of a different religion. — Peter J. Carroll

Devotee Quotes By Ramakrishna

A devotee who can call on God while living a householder's life is a hero indeed. God thinks: 'He is blessed indeed who prays to me in the midst of his worldly duties. He is trying to find me, overcoming a great obstacle
pushing away, as it were, a huge block of stone weighing a ton. Such a man is a real hero. — Ramakrishna

Devotee Quotes By Paramahansa Yogananda

After deep prayer and meditation the devotee is in touch with his divine consciousness; there is no greater power than that inward protection.
- Paramhansa Yogananda — Paramahansa Yogananda

Devotee Quotes By John Gorrie

The wonderful structure of the animal system will probably never permit us to look upon it as a merely physical apparatus, yet the demands of science require that the evidently magnified principles of vitality should be reduced to their natural spheres, or if truth requires, wholly subverted in favor of those more cognizable by the human understanding. The spirit of the age will not tolerate in the devotee of science a quiet indifference ... — John Gorrie

Devotee Quotes By Chanakya

Offspring, friends and relatives flee from a devotee of the Lord: yet those who follow him bring merit to their families through their devotion. — Chanakya

Devotee Quotes By Christopher Pike

But Krishna is flexible when it comes to who a person worships," I say. "He said that whatever god a man or woman worships with love, it is the same as worshipping him. I think that line is one of the keys to the Gita. The worship is for the sake of the devotee, not for the sake of the god. — Christopher Pike

Devotee Quotes By L.P. Hartley

Even the most impassioned devotee of the ghost story would admit that the taste for it is slightly abnormal, a survival, perhaps, from adolescence, a disease of deficiency suffered by those whose lives and imaginations do not react satisfactorily to normal experience and require an extra thrill — L.P. Hartley

Devotee Quotes By Ben Shapiro

The Muslim world just doesn't believe that skin color is all that important. Obama may be half-black, but he's still all-Western, according to them. It doesn't matter whether you're black, white or green - if you're not a devotee of Muhammad, you don't matter. — Ben Shapiro

Devotee Quotes By Mahatma Gandhi

The devotee of truth is often obliged to grope in the dark. — Mahatma Gandhi

Devotee Quotes By Lafcadio Hearn

Now I, like that Chinese devotee, must confess myself a very ignorant person, and naturally unable to hear the conversation of Ants. But the Fairy of Science sometimes touches my ears and eyes with her wand; and then, for a little time, I am able to hear things inaudible, and to perceive things imperceptible. — Lafcadio Hearn

Devotee Quotes By H.W.L. Poonja

Look after everybody So that they are happy to see you. It is better to serve the devotee of god than to serve god himself. — H.W.L. Poonja

Devotee Quotes By Lahiri Mahasaya

Whenever anyone utters with reverence the name of Babaji, that devotee attracts an instant spiritual blessing. — Lahiri Mahasaya

Devotee Quotes By Kenneth Branagh

I'm a devotee of Stephen Sondheim. I think he's a genius. — Kenneth Branagh
