The first thing a great person does, is make us realize the insignificance of circumstance.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

MONTH 6: 

When you realize how perfect everything is you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky.

Buddha

Real music is not for wealth, not for honours or even the joys of the mind… but as a path for realisation and salvation.
Ali Akbar Khan

When you want to share something with another person more than anything, it is one of the most difficult things to realize that you can never have it.

Ashly Lorenzana

What is heard has to be pondered over. What is pondered over has to be put into practice. It is only when all three are accomplished that the realization of Bliss can be attained.

 Sri Sathya Sai Baba

MONTH 5:

When we begin to realize what we are, who we are, why we are, then we begin to realize what we are not, who we are not, why we are not. We begin to realize that we don’t have basic, substantial, solid, fundamental ground that we can exert anymore. We begin to realize that our ideas of security and our concept of freedom have been purely phantom experiences.

Chogyam Trungpa

Contentment is not the fulfillment of what you want, but the realization of how much you already have.

Unknown

He realized…that the loudest are the least sincere, that arrogance is a quality of the ignorant, and that flatterers tend to be vicious.

Isabel Allende

Sometimes a little bit of space is all you need to realize what you truly want.

MONTH 4: 

Men can starve from a lack of self-realization as much as they can from a lack of bread.

Richard Wright

I used to spend so much time reacting and responding to everyone else that my life had no direction. Other people’s lives, problems, and wants set the course for my life. Once I realized it was okay for me to think about and identify what I wanted, remarkable things began to take place in my life.

Melody Beattie

It’s  disconcerting to realize how little you have to say to someone who once occupied such a prominent place in your bed.

Sue Grafton

Freedom is realizing you have a choice.

T.F. Hodge

True communication is communion―the realization of oneness, which is love.

Eckhart Tolle

MONTH 3: 

The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today.

Franklin D. Roosevelt

Success is the progressive realization of a worthy goal or ideal.

Earl Nightingale

Love is the difficult realization that something other than oneself is real.

Iris Murdoch

Spiritual practice is evolving; vision is evolving; realisation is evolving. Enlightenment itself is evolving.

Michael Murphy

MONTH 2: 

I think the moral majority and religious right have been shrinking and having not quite as loud a voice in America, and all of a sudden people are coming to their own realizations going, ‘Joe down the street is gay and he’s a great guy.’

Jason Priestly

Love is the difficult realization that something other than oneself is real.

Iris Murdoch

Creative thinking may mean simply the realization that there is no particular virtue in doing things the way they always have been done.

Rudolph Flesch

At that moment of realization I knew that I had been blind because I had wished not to see; it was only then that I realised, at last, that all these dead men, French and Germans, were brothers, and I was the brother of them all.

Ernst Toller

MONTH 1: 

Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life.

Ekhart Tolle

The happiness that is genuinely satisfying is accompanied by the fullest exercise of our faculties and the fullest realization of the world in which we live.

Bertrand Russell

An emancipated society, on the other hand, would not be a unitary state, but the realization of universality in the reconciliation of differences.

Theodor Adorno

What is heard has to be pondered over. What is pondered over has to be put into practice. It is only when all three are accomplished that the realization of Bliss can be attained.

 Sri Sathya Sai Baba

One thing: you have to walk, and create the way by your walking; you will not find a ready-made path. It is not so cheap, to reach to the ultimate realization of truth. You will have to create the path by walking yourself; the path is not ready-made, lying there and waiting for you. It is just like the sky: the birds fly, but they don’t leave any footprints. You cannot follow them; there are no footprints left behind.

Osho
