"I look at the good. When you are relaxed, your body is always relaxed. When you are pessimistic, your body behaves in an unnatural way. It is up to us whether we look at the good or the bad. When you are nice to others, they are nice to you. When you give, you receive."

"People all over the world tell me that whatever it was they were chasing . . . and as a psychiatrist, my opinion is that everybody is chasing something.  Some people are chasing power, which is so ridiculous.  I, myself, have spent my life chasing knowledge, some people chase fame or money or any of these other things. But whatever they were chasing up to this near death experience, they come back and they say the same thing from all over the world -- 

-- they say what this life is all about is learning how to love, because that is what everybody saw.  When they had their life review, the most important things in this review had to do with the love they showed other people."

- Raymond Moody, M.D.

"Finding truth is difficult and the road to it is rough. As seekers of the truth, you would be wise to withhold judgment and not simply put your trust in the writings of the ancients. You must question and critically examine those writings from every side. You must submit only to argument and experiment and not to the sayings of any person. For every human being is vulnerable to all kinds of imperfections. As seekers of the truth, we must also suspect and question our own ideas as we perform our investigations, to avoid falling into credulous or careless thinking. Take this course and truth will be revealed to you." 

- Islamic scholar Ibn Alhazen, 965 - 1040 AD
