“Oneness in hundreds of hues gleaming in nations and ages”
This book is a wonderful treasure – a collection of over 1,000 quotations from over 500 different authors originating from nearly 100 nations throughout recorded history, all with a common theme: to express Oneness.
Opening at random, one stumbles upon passages like:
“Man is not only a contributory creature, but a total creature; he does not only make one, but he is all; he is not a piece of the world, but the world itself; and next to the glory of God, the reason why there is a world.” – John Donne, United Kingdom, 1630
“Independence? That’s middle class blasphemy. We are all dependent on one mother, every soul of us on earth.” – George Bernard Shaw, Ireland, 1912
“In all the world there is no such thing as a stranger.” – Kurozumi Munetada, Japan, 1846
and hundreds more… Page after page filled with examples of humanity’s expressions of this simple, sacred, timeless wisdom – all is one, and One is All.
