Quote by Meister Eckhart
What we plant in the soil of contemplation, we shall reap in the harvest of action.
This quote suggests that the thoughts and ideas we cultivate through deep reflection and contemplation will manifest in our actions and outcomes in life. It emphasizes the connection between our thoughts and the results we achieve, highlighting the importance of intentional thinking and reflection as a precursor to taking meaningful action. It implies that the quality of our thinking directly influences the effectiveness and impact of our actions, encouraging us to be mindful and deliberate in the seeds we plant in the fertile ground of our minds.
Historical Re-creation, he thought glumly, as they picked their way across, under, over or through the boulders and insect-buzzing heaps of splintered timber, with streamlets running everywhere. Only we do it with people dressing up and running around with blunt weapons, and people selling hot dogs, and the girls all miserable because they can only dress up as wenches, wenching being the only job available to women in the olden days.
When people grow gradually rich their requirements and standard of living expand in proportion, while their present-giving instincts often remain in the undeveloped condition of their earlier days. Something showy and not-too-expensive in a shop is their only conception of the ideal gift.
