Zitat des Tages von George Gurdjieff:
A man can only attain knowledge with the help of those who possess it. This must be understood from the very beginning. One must learn from him who knows.
Without struggle, no progress and no result. Every breaking of habit produces a change in the machine.
A man is never the same for long. He is continually changing. He seldom remains the same even for half an hour.
Every ceremony or rite has a value if it is performed without alteration. A ceremony is a book in which a great deal is written. Anyone who understands can read it. One rite often contains more than a hundred books.
A man will renounce any pleasures you like but he will not give up his suffering.
Without self knowledge, without understanding the working and functions of his machine, man cannot be free, he cannot govern himself and he will always remain a slave.
A 'sin' is something which is not necessary.
It is the greatest mistake to think that man is always one and the same. A man is never the same for long. He is continually changing. He seldom remains the same even for half an hour.
Laughter relieves us of superfluous energy, which, if it remained unused, might become negative, that is, poison. Laughter is the antidote.
