The world is full of half baked spiritual quotes that have little to no connection with reality. However, the occasional string of transcendent words deviates from this category and can bring those who read it a little closer to the truth.

Here are seven such quotes:

“The suffering and happiness that each of us experiences is a reflection of the level of distortion or clarity with which we view ourselves and the world.”

- The Dalai Lama

“Every particular in nature, a leaf, a drop, a crystal, a moment of time, is related to the whole, and partakes of the perfection of the whole.”

- Ralph Waldo Emerson

“A soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts.”

- Marcus Aurelius

“To doubt everything and to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions, both dispense with the necessity of reflection.”

- Henri Poincaré

“I feel we don’t really need scriptures. The entire life is an open book, a scripture. Read it. Learn while digging a pit or chopping some wood or cooking some food. If you can’t learn from your daily activities, how are you going to understand the scriptures?”

- Swami Satchidananda

“We are like islands in the sea, separate on the surface, but connected in the deep.”

- William James

“Myth is an eternal mirror in which we see ourselves.”

- J.F. Bierlein
