"Light everywhere meets with light; since everything contains all things in itself and again sees all things in another. So that all things are everywhere and all is all. Each thing likewise is everything." Plotinus, quoted in G. R. S. Mead's introduction to Taylor's 'Plotinus'
"Symbolically, in the infinite ocean of light, with centre everywhere and with circumference nowhere, there arises a full-orbed sphere of living light, a Logos, and the surface of the sphere is His will to limit Himself that He may become manifest, His veil in which He incloses Himself that within it a universe may take form."
"Man remains forever free at the centre."
"God is immanent in every atom, all-pervading, all-sustaining, all-evolving; He is its source and its end, its cause and its object, its centre and circumference; it is built on Him as its sure foundation, it breathes in Him as its encircling space; He is in everything and everything in Him."
"Life is one; happy they who see its presence, and make themselves the channels of its living force."
"Man in his inner Self is one with the Self of the universe."
"The One Self is in all."
"The One is the perfect chord of Being, of infinite melodious concords, all turned to a single note, in which Life and Wisdom and Bliss are blended into one keynote of Existence."
"Man is a dignified, immortal being, evolving towards a divinely glorious end."
"The life of the Logos abiding in each form is its central, controlling, and directing energy."
"Those who learn the truth about their own nature become free."
"The eternal Existence is proclaimed in the Chhandogyopanishad as 'One only, without a second.'"
"The one Life takes on countless limitations, each right in its own place and time."
"It is infolded Deity that is the guarantee of humanity's final triumph; this is the hidden motive power that makes evolution at once possible and inevitable, the upward-lifting force that slowly overcomes every obstacle and every difficulty."
"The one who is wise by love rises above all petty differences, and sees all drawing their life from the one source, all as part of his family."
"All things live in rhythmical vibrations, all seek the harmonious and are repelled by dissonance."
"Pure love brought the universe into being, pure love maintains it, pure love draws it upwards towards perfection, towards bliss."
"Strength and calm and wisdom come to those who behold with opened eyes the glory of the Good Law."
"As a magnet has its magnetic field, an area within which all its forces play, larger or smaller according to its strength, so has every man a field of influence within which play the forces he emits, and these forces work in curves that return to their forthsender, that re-enter the centre whence they emerged."
"All are One and are knotted in One, nor are they separated one from another." The Zohar
"Nothing is real but the one Life that we seek for and love unconsciously under its many veils."
"A survey of the great religions of the world shows that they hold in common many religious, ethical, and philosophical ideas." Annie Besant, 'The Ancient Wisdom', Theosophical Publishing House 1983, p. 2
"This Self is the One, and hence is spoken of as the Monad, and this Monad is the outbreathed life of the Logos, containing within itself germinally, or in a state of latency, all the divine powers and attributes."
"Striking is the resemblance – or more correctly the identity – of the doctrine of the One in the Upanishads and the Eleatic school. Xenophanes' teaching of the unity of God and the Kosmos and of the changelessness of the One, and even more that of Parmenides, who held that reality is ascribable only to the One unborn, indestructible and omnipresent,….these doctrines are completely identical with the essential contents of the Upanishads and of the Vedantic philosophy which springs from them."
"One nourishes many sides, thus All is One." The Zohar, Isaac Myer's translation
