Quotations about world

Mahatma GandhiWe but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. This is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do.

 - Mahatma Gandhi

Neil GaimanEverybody has a secret world inside of them.  I mean everybody. All of the people in the whole world, I mean everybody - no matter how dull and boring they are on the outside. Inside them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds... Not just one world.  Hundreds of them. Thousands, maybe.

The really striking thing is that it would not take much effort to establish validity in most of these cases… but people prefer reassurance to research.
