Mystic Quotes:

Mysticism and exaggeration go together. A mystic must not fear ridicule if he is to push all the way to the limits of humility or the limits of delight. Author: Milan Kundera

Mystics always hope that science will some day overtake them. Author: Booth Tarkington

All mystics speak the same language, for they come from the same country. Author: Louis
Claude de St. Martin

Just as in earthly life lovers long for the moment when they are able to breathe forth their love for each other, to let their souls blend in a soft whisper, so the mystic longs for the moment when in prayer he can, as it were, creep into God. Author: Soren Kierkegaard

Mystics and Mysticism
Quotes: The mystic purchases a moment of exhilaration with a lifetime of confusion; and the confusion is infectious and destructive. It is confusing and destructive to try and explain anything in terms of anything else, poetry in terms of psychology. - Basil Bunting

Uncontrolled, the hunger and thirst after God may become an obstacle, cutting off the soul from what it desires. If a man would travel far along the mystic road, he must learn to desire God intensely but in stillness, passively and yet with all his heart and mind and strength. - Aldous Huxley

We follow the mystics. They know where they are going. They, too, go astray, but when they go astray they do so in a way that is mystical, dark, and mysterious. - Ryszard Kapuscinski

I love the quotes you find and post here.

Holmes writes that "a mystic is not a mysterious person but is one who has a deep, inner sense of Life abd of his unity with the whole."

When we realize that we are all connected and see that what we do to our brother also affects each and every one of us, then we have also stepped into this definition of being a mystic.
