Song Without Words. Op. 85 by F. Mendelssohn


Madonna Laboris by Nicholas Roerich.19331. "Mercy, compassion, pity, love, and all the benevolent efforts that We enjoin, are they not wondrous paths of communion with the highest energies? People should get used to regarding these luminous qualities as actual means for connecting with the higher worlds." [Heart, 374]


2. "It is good if we learn to love difficulties, for, truly, only personal experience, personal experiences and sufferings teach us great patience and mercy – the qualities that underlie all achievements." [Letters of Helena Roerich in 9 Volumes - 6. 043]


3. "Self-abnegation, mercy, compassion, courage are forged in life. Nothing abstract can mold the strength of the spirit." [Brotherhood, 489]


4. "The world outlives the consequences of long–sown causes, but also lays new ones that will decide whether it should be or not? That is why it is so important to form separate groups-oases that would call for mercy, tolerance and knowledge." [Letters of Helena Roerich in 9 Volumes - 4. 159]


5. "Someone has said that people are most competent at preserving stones and metals, less so with plants, still less with animals, and least of all with man. You can judge for yourself how just is such an understanding. Man is a most subtle organism, and yet the most cruel treatment falls to his lot." [Brotherhood, 442]


6. "The Thinker instructed, “If you learn to open your heart so that it can embrace another’s pain, you will then be able to find the needed words of comfort.”" [Supermundane, 502]
