There are three principles in a man's being and life, the principle of thought, the principle of speech, and the principle of action.

The origin of all conflict between me and my fellow-men is that I do not say what I mean and I don't do what I say.

MartináBuber (1878 - 1965) Jewish Religious Philosopher

David Gurteen's comments: Well I don't agree that this is the origin of all conflict but it is certainly a huge destroyer of trust. And lack of trust leads to misunderstanding which in turn so often leads to conflict. Think about some aspect of your life right now. Are you being totally open and truthful about a situation and are you walking your talk?

Quotations are extremely effective at capturing and concisely communicating thoughts and ideas. They can be inspirational but more importantly quotations can help us reveal and assess the assumptions, values and beliefs that underlie the ways in which we perceive the world.

I have compiled over 800 quotations and short excerpts on this website. It is an eclectic mix but most of them are inspirational or insightful in nature and relate to knowledge, learning or personal development in some form.

Quotations from Martin Buber:

 I have to tell it again and again:

I have no doctrine. I only point out something.

I point out reality, I point out something in reality which has not or too little been seen.

I take him who listens to me at his hand and lead him to the window.

I push open the window and point outside.

I have no doctrine, I carry on a dialogue.

MartináBuber, (1878 - 1965) Jewish Religious Philosopher
Reply to My Critics, p. 693 



 I do not accept any absolute formulas for living. No preconceived code can see ahead to everything that can happen in a man's life. As we live, we grow and our beliefs change. They must change. So I think we should live with this constant discovery. We should be open to this adventure in heightened awareness of living. We should stake our whole existence on our willingness to explore and experience.

MartináBuber, (1878 - 1965) Jewish Religious Philosopher



 He who loves a woman, and brings her life to present realization in his, is able to look in the Thou of her eyes into a beam of the eternal Thou.

MartináBuber, (1878 - 1965) Jewish Religious Philosopher
I and Thou 



 All real living is meeting.
