Jiddu Krishnamurti quotes (24)

A consistent thinker is a thoughtless person, because he conforms to a pattern; he repeats phrases and thinks in a groove.
Jiddu Krishnamurti   Category:

A man who is not afraid is not aggressive, a man who has no sense of fear of any kind is really a free, a peaceful man.
Jiddu Krishnamurti   Category:

All ideologies are idiotic, whether religious or political, for it is conceptual thinking, the conceptual word, which has so unfortunately divided man.
Jiddu Krishnamurti   Category:

Freedom from the desire for an answer is essential to the understanding of a problem.
Jiddu Krishnamurti   Category:

Hitler and Mussolini were only the primary spokesmen for the attitude of domination and craving for power that are in the heart of almost everyone. Until the source is cleared, there will always be confusion and hate, wars and class antagonisms.
Jiddu Krishnamurti   Category:

I maintain that Truth is a pathless land, and you cannot approach it by any path whatsoever, by any religion, by any sect.
Jiddu Krishnamurti   Category:

If we can really understand the problem, the answer will come out of it, because the answer is not separate from the problem.
Jiddu Krishnamurti   Category:

In oneself lies the whole world and if you know how to look and learn, the door is there and the key is in your hand. Nobody on earth can give you either the key or the door to open, except yourself.
Jiddu Krishnamurti   Category:

It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.
Jiddu Krishnamurti   Category: Society

It's no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.
Jiddu Krishnamurti   Category:

Religion is the frozen thought of man out of which they build temples.
Jiddu Krishnamurti   Category:

So when you are listening to somebody, completely, attentively, then you are listening not only to the words, but also to the feeling of what is being conveyed, to the whole of it, not part of it.
Jiddu Krishnamurti   Category:

The constant assertion of belief is an indication of fear.
Jiddu Krishnamurti   Category:

The end is the beginning of all things, Suppressed and hidden, Awaiting to be released through the rhythm Of pain and pleasure.
Jiddu Krishnamurti   Category:

The flowering of love is meditation.
Jiddu Krishnamurti   Category:

The moment you have in your heart this extraordinary thing called love and feel the depth, the delight, the ecstasy of it, you will discover that for you the world is transformed.
Jiddu Krishnamurti   Category: Love

There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning.
Jiddu Krishnamurti   Category:

There is no need to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning.
Jiddu Krishnamurti   Category:

Tradition becomes our security, and when the mind is secure it is in decay.
Jiddu Krishnamurti   Category:

We all want to be famous people, and the moment we want to be something we are no longer free.
Jiddu Krishnamurti   Category:

What is needed, rather than running away or controlling or suppressing or any other resistance, is understanding fear; that means, watch it, learn about it, come directly into contact with it. We are to learn about fear, not how to escape from it.
Jiddu Krishnamurti   Category:

When we talk about understanding, surely it takes place only when the mind listens completely - the mind being your heart, your nerves, your ears- when you give your whole attention to it.
Jiddu Krishnamurti   Category:

You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it. That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies, that is why you must sing and dance, and write poems and suffer and understand, for all that is life.
Jiddu Krishnamurti   Category:

Your belief in God is merely an escape from your monotonous, stupid and cruel life.
