 Gurdjieff inspirational quote about Being Human:

  • 'Man's possibilities are very great. You cannot even conceive a shadow of what man is capable of attaining. But nothing can be attained in sleep. In the  of a sleeping man his illusions, his 'dreams' are mixed with reality. He lives in a subjective world and he can never escape from it. And this is the reason why he can never make use of all the powers he possesses and why he lives in only a small part of himself.'

Motivational quotes on Being Human and Being asleep

  • Man lives his life in sleep, and in sleep he dies
  • Man such as we know him, is a machine. 
  • 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.
  • The power of changing oneself lies not in the mind, but in the body and the feelings. Unfortunately, however, our body and our feelings are so constituted that they don’t care a jot about anything so long as they are happy. They live for the moment and their memory is short. The mind alone lives for tomorrow. Each has its own merits. The merit of the mind is that it looks ahead. But it is only the other two that can "do."
  • Man has no permanent and unchangeable I. Every thought, every mood, every desire, every sensation, says "I".
  • A man may be born, but in order to be born he must first die, and in order to die he must first awake.
  • A man will renounce any pleasures you like but he will not give up his suffering.
  • Here there are neither Russians nor English, Jews nor Christians, but only those who pursue one aim — to be able to BE
