Words of Wisdom for the Soul

There are so many beautiful words in the world. Here you will find quotes from the soul and about the soul.

“Here comes the soul from heaven,
glorious and clear, truly
Reviving the philosopher’s daughter”
– Rosarium Philosophorum

You need not do anything, remain sitting at your table and listen. You need not even listen, just wait. You need not even wait, just be quiet, still & solitary. And the world will freely offer itself to you unmasked. It has no choice. It will roll in ecstasy at your feet. Franz Kafka

The misuse of language induces evil in the soul. –Socrates

A writer is a person who cares what words mean, what they say, how they say it. Writers know words are their way towards truth and freedom, and so they use them with care, with thought, with fear, with delight. By using words well they strengthen their souls. Story-tellers and poets spend their lives learning that skill and art of using words well. And their words make the souls of their readers stronger, brighter, deeper. –Ursula Le Guin

Oh soul,
you worry too much.
You have seen your own strength.
You have seen your own beauty.
You have seen your golden wings.
Of anything less,
why do you worry?
You are in truth
the soul, of the soul, of the soul
Rumi
