1st version/June 2000/added 20 quotes: Sept. 00
During the process of working through thousands of quotes and thereby creeping into the minds of thousands of people, I found it necessary to write down some self-grown quotes and thoughts to re-establish my own identity. Even though ultimate wisdom is universal by definition and independent from specific cultures, religions or personalities, I enjoyed using my own words, pictures and biographical background to start this little collection, which hopefully will grow over the years. I'm obviously not Buddha or Einstein and I don't want to pretend to be. So I decided just to put down what came straight from my own mind, heart and experience, having worked in the spiritual field for more than 3 decades. Wisdom is something which continuously grows and changes and with some luck becomes more essential with the aging process... like clouds drifting away to reveal the open sky (which was always there). So I look forward to seeing this kind of wisdom-diary grow like a patchwork, checking myself using this mirror. It could easily happen that I either burst into laughter or smile through my tears when I re-read some of my ultimate wisdoms from the beginning of the 21st century :-)  All people of wisdom I've met in my life had at least three things in common: a good sense of humor, a little craziness and some child-like purity. That's already three good reasons to follow the path the wisdom :-)
"A proverb is a short sentence based on long experience.".- Miguel de Cervantes
- Feel invited to copy your favorite quotes, but don't republish the whole collection :-)
- For returning visitors we marked newly added quotes with (n).and the date behind. 
Abbreviations:
h.= also sorted under Heavy Weights /.l.= also sorted under Light Weights / n.= newly added (with date in brackets)
- The subdivision in 'heavy' and 'light' shouldn't be taken too seriously. The criteria are completely subjective. At the end they are either all 'heavy weights', all 'light weights' or sometimes this and sometimes that. It completely depends on the circumstances and where one stands. (That's wisdom already)

Amulet's...
"Don't build your spiritual power on things like amulet's, robes and dressings, ritual objects or other materialized items. Using them without attachment can be of temporarily help. But entering the bardo (after-death experience) we are all naked. No amulet at hand :-).(t).(h).(n).9-00
