Miguel Ruiz
“1. Be Impeccable With Your Word
Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love. 

2. Don't Take Anything Personally
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won't be the victim of needless suffering. 

3. Don't Make Assumptions
Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life. 

4. Always Do Your Best
Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.” 
― Miguel Ruiz

Hermann Hesse
“For me, trees have always been the most penetrating preachers. I revere them when they live in tribes and families, in forests and groves. And even more I revere them when they stand alone. They are like lonely persons. Not like hermits who have stolen away out of some weakness, but like great, solitary men, like Beethoven and Nietzsche. In their highest boughs the world rustles, their roots rest in infinity; but they do not lose themselves there, they struggle with all the force of their lives for one thing only: to fulfil themselves according to their own laws, to build up their own form, to represent themselves. Nothing is holier, nothing is more exemplary than a beautiful, strong tree. When a tree is cut down and reveals its naked death-wound to the sun, one can read its whole history in the luminous, inscribed disk of its trunk: in the rings of its years, its scars, all the struggle, all the suffering, all the sickness, all the happiness and prosperity stand truly written, the narrow years and the luxurious years, the attacks withstood, the storms endured. And every young farmboy knows that the hardest and noblest wood has the narrowest rings, that high on the mountains and in continuing danger the most indestructible, the strongest, the ideal trees grow.

Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth. They do not preach learning and precepts, they preach, undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life.

A tree says: A kernel is hidden in me, a spark, a thought, I am life from eternal life. The attempt and the risk that the eternal mother took with me is unique, unique the form and veins of my skin, unique the smallest play of leaves in my branches and the smallest scar on my bark. I was made to form and reveal the eternal in my smallest special detail.

A tree says: My strength is trust. I know nothing about my fathers, I know nothing about the thousand children that every year spring out of me. I live out the secret of my seed to the very end, and I care for nothing else. I trust that God is in me. I trust that my labor is holy. Out of this trust I live.

When we are stricken and cannot bear our lives any longer, then a tree has something to say to us: Be still! Be still! Look at me! Life is not easy, life is not difficult. Those are childish thoughts. Let God speak within you, and your thoughts will grow silent. You are anxious because your path leads away from mother and home. But every step and every day lead you back again to the mother. Home is neither here nor there. Home is within you, or home is nowhere at all.

A longing to wander tears my heart when I hear trees rustling in the wind at evening. If one listens to them silently for a long time, this longing reveals its kernel, its meaning. It is not so much a matter of escaping from one's suffering, though it may seem to be so. It is a longing for home, for a memory of the mother, for new metaphors for life. It leads home. Every path leads homeward, every step is birth, every step is death, every grave is mother.

So the tree rustles in the evening, when we stand uneasy before our own childish thoughts: Trees have long thoughts, long-breathing and restful, just as they have longer lives than ours. They are wiser than we are, as long as we do not listen to them. But when we have learned how to listen to trees, then the brevity and the quickness and the childlike hastiness of our thoughts achieve an incomparable joy. Whoever has learned how to listen to trees no longer wants to be a tree. He wants to be nothing except what he is. That is home. That is happiness.”

John Lennon
“I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in all of us. I believe that what Jesus and Mohammed and Buddha and all the rest said was right. It's just that the translations have gone wrong.”

Mother Teresa
“The greatest disease in the West today is not TB or leprosy; it is being unwanted, unloved, and uncared for. We can cure physical diseases with medicine, but the only cure for loneliness, despair, and hopelessness is love. There are many in the world who are dying for a piece of bread but there are many more dying for a little love. The poverty in the West is a different kind of poverty -- it is not only a poverty of loneliness but also of spirituality. There's a hunger for love, as there is a hunger for God.”

Saul Williams
“Have you ever lost yourself in a kiss? I mean pure psychedelic inebriation. Not just lustful petting but transcendental metamorphosis when you became aware that the greatness of this being was breathing into you. Licking the sides and corners of your mouth, like sealing a thousand fleshy envelopes filled with the essence of your passionate being and then opened by the same mouth and delivered back to you, over and over again - the first kiss of the rest of your life. A kiss that confirms that the universe is aligned, that the world's greatest resource is love, and maybe even that God is a woman. With or without a belief in God, all kisses are metaphors decipherable by allocations of time, circumstance, and understanding”

St. Francis of Assisi
“Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love,
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved, as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive,
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.”

“I never liked jazz music because jazz music doesn't resolve. But I was outside the Bagdad Theater in Portland one night when I saw a man playing the saxophone. I stood there for fifteen minutes, and he never opened his eyes.

After that I liked jazz music.

Sometimes you have to watch somebody love something before you can love it yourself. It is as if they are showing you the way.

I used to not like God because God didn't resolve. But that was before any of this happened.”

Carl Sagan
“Science is not only compatible with spirituality; it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light‐years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. So are our emotions in the presence of great art or music or literature, or acts of exemplary selfless courage such as those of Mohandas Gandhi or Martin Luther King, Jr. The notion that science and spirituality are somehow mutually exclusive does a disservice to both.”

Although he was born in Latvia, Mark Rothko is one of the many well known American artists, for the abstract expressionist pieces that he created during the course of his career. Born in 1903, he and his family emigrated to the US when he was 10 years old. Some of the works that he is most well known for are images which featured large, and luminous color blocks. He is also most well known as one of the best New York School of Abstract painters, for the forms, figures, and great color creation that he delivered, in the many paintings he created. 

In 1921, Mark Rothko attended Yale University, and his initial chosen course of study was either to get a degree in engineering, or to go for a law degree; but, prior to completing his education, he decided to abandon both of these routes and chose a different career path to follow. 

After leaving Yale, Rothko moved to New York, as he put it "to bum about and starve a bit". Over the next few years he took odd jobs and studied for a short time at the Art Students League under Max Weber, one of the only professors there to have firsthand knowledge and enthusiasm for European modernism. His early paintings were oriented to social themes and contain expressionist as well as surrealist overtones. His subjects reflected Weber's influence as well as that of artists such as Marc Chagall.

 Many of the pieces that Mark Rothko created early on in his career showed the potential that he would eventually have as an artist. The urban scenes and landscapes were often focal points for the works which he created, and figurative works were also some which he created. The rough application of paint, showcased an expressive side to the art that he would later create, which is the work which he is most known for during the course of his career as an artist.
During the mid 1930s, Mark Rothko joined a group in New York which was known as the Ten. This group was made up of a group of painters, doing modernist work, and the abstract work that was to follow, which was extremely popular during this period, and the following several decades in the US. A number of well known artists were a part of this group; in addition to Mark Rothko, other artists in the Ten included: Adolph Gottlieb, Louis Harris, Ben- Zion, and Joseph Salmon, to name a few. 

During 1940s, Mark Rothko took an approach to art, in which he wanted to change what the American public had come to know as abstract art. He was searching for a new visual means to create, and a way to change the American landscape during the wartime periods, to showcase the different views that were taken during the war. During this period, many of the pieces that he created were symbolic of the war, and American life during this period. Increasing symbolic features included biomorphic forms which were used in his art, which were influenced by surrealist images and artists that were coming around during this time period as well. 

In late 1940s and early 1950s, Mark Rothko created some of the pieces which he is most well known for in his career. Many of the art which he put out during this period showcased the large and dark brush strokes, the large b locks of color that were used in his paintings, and a variety of washes were also used in the art forms which he created during these years. Large and contemplative art was what he created using this style of stroke, and the colors that were chosen for the art forms which he created; many of these pieces were symbolic of American life during the period, others were symbolic of the changes in the art world, and the abstract work which he was turning his focus towards, as his career progressed. 

In late 1950s, Mark Rothko took yet another approach to the works which he created; darker colors were often used in his art, and darker hues which encompassed richer textures, also became a focal point of the work which he was creating. During this time, the artist also spent quite some time focusing on a work that he was to create for a chapel that was located in Houston. Not only did this showcase the belief in spiritual art, but also in his belief of the church. It showcased the spiritual and emotional ties with art, and his beliefs. 

Throughout his life, Mark Rothko suffered with bows of depression, and in 1970 he took his own life, as many other famous artists had done before him. But, even with a shorter career than many artists in the abstract realm, he did have quite a bit of success with the works which he had created during the course of his career. By the time he passed away, he had a sole exhibition showcase with some of his most famous pieces, which was set in the Museum of Modern Art in New York. In addition to the exhibit, and the fact that many of his works were on display for people to see, Mark Rothko was also viewed as one of the leading American artists, in the world of abstractionist work, and abstract painting. 

Although his career did come to an end rather quickly, in addition to his work being placed on display in the US, in the Museum of Modern Art Gallery in New York, there were a number of other locations, in the US and around the world, where many of his pieces were put out for display as well. Some of the locations which the works he had created during his career were exhibited include: the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, the Hamburg Kunsthalle in Hamburg, the Tate Modern in London, and the Solomon Guggenheim Museum, which is also located in New York. 

Even though his career only lasted for a period of about forty years, it was one which changed the way in which art in the US and worldwide was seen. Mark Rothko made the transition into abstract art, and the new modern approaches which would remain in effect for several decades to follow, and he was one of the leading forces in the US in this field.
