Each one of us has it in themselves to be a free spirit, just as every rose bud has in it a rose.
When the human being hears music, he has a sense of wellbeing, because these tones harmonize with what he has experienced in the world of his spiritual home.
If humanity is to live in the future in a socially right way, humanity must educate its children in a socially right way.
In the future no human being is to find peace in the enjoyment of happiness if others beside him are unhappy.
Wherever love and compassion are active in life, we can perceive the magic breath of the spirit blowing through the sense world.
A healthy social life is found only, when in the mirror of each soul the whole community finds its reflection, and when in the whole community the virtue of each one is living.
Our highest endeavor must be to develop free human beings who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives. The need for imagination, a sense of truth, and a feeling of responsibility—these three forces are the very nerve of education.
Love is higher than opinion. If people love one another the most varied opinions can be reconciled - thus one of the most important tasks for humankind today and in the future is that we should learn to live together and understand one another. If this human fellowship is not achieved, all talk of development is empty.
When human beings meet together seeking the spirit with unity of purpose then they will also find their way to each other.
Receive the children in reverence, educate them in love, and send them forth in freedom.
