Going off the rails on a crazy train

Rudolf Steiner:  "It's essential that we follow the prevailing conceptual Gestalt only so long as its concepts allow us to find our way back to reality again."

Rudolf Steiner:  "Modern thinking is simply unable to cope with and master the chaos of outer conditions and tasks in which man is becoming so deeply involved. Thinking itself will become rigid. Today [1909] we are living in an age of transition but thinking will soon no longer be sufficiently fluid and flexible to grapple with and transform the complicated conditions of life."

"The intelligent man who is proud of his intelligence is like the condemned man who is proud of his large cell."  — Simone Weil

"Gentlemen, start your engines!"

Rudolf Steiner:
  "The Asian fundamentally despises the nature of European and American thinking because it always presents him with a utilitarian standpoint which can only be governed by the intellect, by the rational mind."

"You are trying to measure the universe with a foot ruler."

— Swamiji, frequently
