Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Osho quotes Coleridge: “These poems are the poems of my freedom – existence becoming free through me. These poems will have to wait.”

Osho: “That’s what I have been doing my whole life, telling people, ‘Just a little more. Soon you will be reaching.'”

“Staking everything, knowing that you are gambling with the unknown… you may be victorious, you may be a failure, but it does not matter,” states Osho.

“If your life is becoming insane just look deep down – you will find that all this deciding is driving you mad too,” says Osho.

Osho states, “The whole of existence exists without any logic. It may be a poetry but it is not a syllogism – hence it is so beautiful.”
