“The true wisdom is to be ready to learn from whatever source the knowledge can come.”

~ The Mother, CWM, Vol. 12, p. 129

“To be young is to live in the future. To be young is to be always ready to give up what we are in order to become what we must be. To be young is never to accept the irreparable.” (p. 122)
