We hope you find inspiration in these Called Quotes from our large collection of quotes.

If a man is called to be a street sweeper,
he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted,

of heaven and earth will pause to say,
here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

the misery which lies upon the world.
- Albert Schweitzer

A wise one said, "We are most like God when we forgive."
It is easy for us to blame, but hard for us to forgive.

to forgive everyone for everything.
And the reward?
In this life, the reward for forgiveness
is your own happiness.
Unconditional universal forgiveness is
the key to your own happiness.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

We are called to be architects of the future, not its victims.
- R. Buckminster Fuller

Where am I? Who am I? How did I come to be here?

Most people think that anger is an instinctive response,
and that some people were just born with the temperament
to get angrier faster than others.
That statement is only half right.
Anger is an instinctive response.
We respond to an affront with anger essentially instantaneously -
much too quickly for conscious thought to be called upon.
But the instinct of the anger response
can be trained through conscious repetition,
visualization, and coaching.
Visualization is seeing the event
we desire to master in our mind's eye.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I can do no other than be reverent
before everything that is called life.
I can do no other than to have compassion
for all that is called life.

- Albert Schweitzer

Just one quality of the Buddha has to be remembered.
He consists only of one quality: witnessing.
This small word witnessing contains the whole of spirituality.

Witness that you are not the mind.
Witness that you are only a witness.
As the witnessing deepens,
you start becoming drunk with the divine.
That is what is called ecstasy.
- Osho

The most called-upon prerequisite of a friend is an accessible ear.
- Maya Angelou

"So just take pleasure in playing the Game."

- John Lennon

because they have not yet learned those things.
Consider what life would be like if you could
forget all the past resentments and perceived offenses
that color your thinking and your emotions.

an opening to experience life
without the jaundiced filter of past disappointments.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Life repeats itself mindlessly -
unless you become mindful, it will go on repeating like a wheel.
That's why Buddhists call it the wheel of life and death,
the wheel of time.
It moves like a wheel: birth is followed by death,
death is followed by birth;
love is followed by hate, hate is followed by love;
success is followed by failure,
failure is followed by success. Just see!
If you can watch just for a few days,
you will see a pattern emerging, a wheel pattern.
One day, a fine morning, you are feeling so good and so happy,
and another day you are so dull,
so dead that you start thinking of committing suicide.
And just the other day you were so full of life,
so blissful that you were feeling thankful to God,
that you were in a mood of deep gratefulness,
and today there is great complaint
and you don't see the point why one should go on living...
And it goes on and on, but you don't see the pattern.
Once you see the pattern, you can get out of it.
- Osho

Best friends are the ones who can be the farthest away

- Anonymous

All who call on God in true faith, earnestly from the heart,

The highest patriotism is not a blind acceptance of official policy,
but a love of one's country deep enough to call her to a higher plain.

If you call a tail a leg, how many legs has a dog?
Five? No, calling a tail a leg don't make it a leg.

Fix reason firmly in her seat,
and call to her tribunal every fact, every opinion.
Question with boldness even the existence of a God;
because, if there be one,
he must more approve of the homage of reason,
than that of blindfolded fear.
- Thomas Jefferson

What some call health, if purchased by perpetual anxiety about diet,
isn't much better than tedious disease.
