Famous quotes containing the words teaching and/or language:

    This teaching is not practical in the sense in which the New Testament is. It is not always sound sense in practice. The Brahman never proposes courageously to assault evil, but patiently to starve it out. His active faculties are paralyzed by the idea of caste, of impassable limits of destiny and the tyranny of time.

    Arianna Stassinopoulos (b. 1950)
