Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote

Jiddu Krishnamurti

"Violence is not merely killing another. It is violence when we use a sharp word, when we make a gesture to brush away a person, when we obey because there is fear. So violence isn't merely organized butchery in the name of God, in the name of society or country. Violence is much more subtle, much deeper, and we are inquiring into the very depths of violence." Jiddu Krishnamurti

"There's a whisper down the field where the year has shot her yield, / And the ricks stand grey to the sun, / Singing: - `Over then, come over, for the bee has quit the clover, / And your English summer's done'."

Born in Bombay and educated in England, Nobel Prize in Literature winner Rudyard Kipling was a prolific writer. His career started with "Departmental Ditties," but it was his epic novels and short stories that brought him lasting fame. Kipling is probably best known for his "The Jungle Book" as well as "Captains Courageous," but he also wrote "The Second Jungle Book", "Just So Stories", and "Kim", which chronicled the adventures of Kimball O'Hara in the Himalayas. He also wrote poetry, including "The Seven Seas" which was published in 1896 and Mandalay, Gunga Din and If.
