Intelligence of the Abstract (Hertz)

One cannot escape the feeling that these mathematical formulas have an independent existence and an intelligence of their own; that they are wiser than we are, wiser even than their discoverers; that we get more out of them than was originally put into them.

The Lighted Way (Maharishi Mahesh Yogi)

There is a phrase: "Man is the master of his own destiny." So the destiny of every man doesn’t depend on the existence of a Maharishi or his absence. Man is the master of his own destiny. A Maharishi is showing a way. Who comes on the lighted way will get to the target, will get to the goal of the way; those who don’t, they won’t, that’s all. Man has a choice. Education is so very limited today, but a Maharishi’s message does not remain limited to his physical body. This is the message that was there before the body of a Maharishi, and it will remain there when the body of a Maharishi will not come up.

-- Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
