KAIFI ZMI – “Break the bond of custom, from the prison of tradition escape Delight not in your weakness, from this imagined delicacy escape Prom these self-conjured vows of greatness escape It too is bondage, from love’s bondage escape. Not only has the thorn, the flower too emasculate risen my love! You have to walk along with me.”  

KAILASH VAJPEYI – “In Jain philosophy, the universe has no beginning, so the question of a Creator has no logical basis. Every one of us is a reservoir of positive energy Divinity is not somewhere out there. So each one of us should strive for perfection and purity of consciousness.”

KALIDASA’S RITUSAMHARA –”Trees put forth flowers, waters abound in lotuses, women’s thoughts turn to love, the air is sweetly scented; mornings are pleasant and days delightful; all things are more alluring in springtime, my love.”    

KALPANA CHAWLA –”Do something because you really want to do it. If you’re doing it just for the goal, and don’t enjoy the path, then I think you’re cheating yourself.”

KALPANA CHAWLA –”I never thought while pursuing my studies or doing anything else about being a woman, I or a person from a small city, or a different country. I pretty much had my dreams, like anybody else and I followed them. People around me fortunately always encouraged and said “if that’s what you want to do carry on”.”

KALPANA CHAWLA –”It was starting to get dim outside, so you got to see your own reflection. And there is the Earth and you can still see the Earth’s surface and the dark sky overhead. And I could then see my reflection in the window and in the retina of my eye the whole earth and the sky could be seen reflected. So I called all the crew members one by one and they saw it, and they said, “oh wow.”   

KALPANA CHAWLA –”Just looking at Earth, looking at the stars during the night part of “Earth; just looking at our planet roll by and the speed at which it goes by and the awe that it inspires; just so many such good thoughts come to your mind when you see all that… Doing it again is like living a dream — a good dream — once again.”

KALPANA CHAWLA –”When you look at the stars and the galaxy, you feel that you are not just from any particular piece of land, but from the solar system.”   

KANSAS JOE MCCOV & MEMPHIS MINNIE –”Crying won’t help you, praying won’t do you no good. When the levee breaks, mama you got to move.”   

KARAN SINGH –”In our arrogance and ignorance we have destroyed the environment of this planet. We have polluted the oceans, made the air unbreathable, desecrated nature and decimated wildlife. Vedantic seers knew that man was not something apart from nature, and, therefore, they constantly exhort us that, while we work for own salvation, we must also work for the welfare of all beings.”  

KAREEM ABDUL JABBAR –”Basketball is an endurance sport, and you have to learn to control your breath; that’s the essence of yoga, too. So, I consciously began using yoga techniques in my practice and playing. I think yoga helped reduce the number and severity of injuries I suffered. As preventative medicine, it’s unequalled.”   

KAREEM ABDUL JABBAR– “I try to do right things at the right time. They may just be little things, but usually they make the difference between winning and losing.”

KAREN ARMSTRONG –” Every fundamentalist movement… is convinced at some gut, visceral level that secular liberal society wants to wipe out religion.            

KAREN ARMSTRONG –”We could say that the nativity is a myth. That does not mean that it is not true. A myth can be defined as something that, in some sense, happened once, but those also nap- pens all the time. Myth reveals the underlying arid timeless significance of an event. It is also a programme for action. The gospels are not accurate biographies of Jesus; like any religious text, they I tell the reader how to behave. Unless a myth is put into practice, we do not grasp its full import. The Christmas myth reminds us that faith does not always bring comfort and joy, but demands self-sacrifice, a commitment to justice and equity, and determination to seek the sacred in the outcast and dispossessed.” 

KAREN LAMB –”A year from now you may wish you had started today.”

KARLBARTH –”Laughter is the closest thing to the grace of God.”     

KARLKRAUS –”Newspapers have roughly the same relationship to life as fortune-tellrs to metaphysics.”  

KARSANBHAI PATEL –”Hardcore value maximisation, avoiding usage of non-required elements into the product and hence reducing the cost results in benefits to the consumer.”              

KARUNA MALHOTRA –”We clean and decorate our homes to welcome Goddess Lakshmi but do not attempt to cleanse our antarman (belief system), where anger, jealousy, unlimited desires and hatred reside. If we are able to eradicate them, Lord Vishnu and Goddess Lakshmi will stay in our hearts forever and thousands of lamps will light up in bliss.”   

KARUNANIDHI –”If the captain of the ship is not perfect, the ship should not be allowed to sink. We have to search for a new captain and repair the ship.”

KASHF-AL-MAHJUB –”The aim of a dervish is to become a dead man walking one whose body stays alive on earth yet whose soul is already in Heaven. Towards the end of his journey, the dervish becomes the Way not the wayfarer, that is, a place over which something is passing, not a traveler following his own free will.”

KATE W FURMAN –”When walking down the path of life, Remember what I say, That every man must feel the thorns That grow along the way. And every soul will stumble, For every man is weak, And the road of life uncertain, Its prospects often bleak. But always give a helping hand, A word of love, a smile, To help the soul beside you walk Across each weary mile.”   

KATE W FURMAN –”When walking down the path of life, remember what I say that every man must feel the thorns that grow along the way and every soul will stumble, for every man is weak, and the road of life uncertain, its prospects often bleak. But always give a helping hand, a word of love, a smile, to help the soul beside you walk across each weary mile. For love will cause the sun to shine, and everywhere you go, the painful thorns less noticed as the roses bloom and grow.”

KATHEBINE MANSFIELD –”This is not a letter but my arms around you for a brief moment.”   

KATHERINE HEPBUM – “Do not make reason for him to stay, only reason for him to return.”

KATHERINE HEPBUM –”Don’t accept ride from strange men. And remember that all men are strange.”

KATHERINE HEPBUM –”When love is not madness, it is not love. Sometimes I wonder if men and women really suit each other. Perhaps they should live next door and just visit now and then.”

KAVIGNAR VAIRAMUTHU –”Today, we pick bodies, not seashells from the sea shore…It is we who are in mourning—then why do you sport the colour black? Kumarikandam, Kabadapuram, Poompuhar: you swallowed them all. Unsatiated, you sent dinosaur waves to devour the innocent. …O mighty sea, what have we done to warrant this severe punishment? Sumatra was once conquered by the great Raja Raja Chola. Is the devastating tsunami Sumatra’s belated vendetta? …We shall overcome all of Nature’s calamities: We shall return to the seas to fish, to travel… But Never to dissolve the ashes of the dead.”  

KAY GRANGER –”We need good faith efforts and results, not roadblocks.”  

KAY KNUDSEN –”True love is when you put someone on a pedestal, and they fall- but you are there to catch them.”

KAY LYONS –”Yesterday is a cancelled cheque; tomorrow is a promissory note; today is the only cash you have: so spend it wisely.”

KAY THEESE –”DO you know how much you mean to me? As you grow into what you will be. You came from within, from just beneath my heart it’s there you’ll always be though your own life will now start. You’re growing so fast it sends me awhirl, With misty eyes I ask, Where’s my little girl? I know sometimes to you I seem harsh and so unfair, But one day you will see, I taught you well because I care. I The next few years will so quickly fly. With laughter and joy, mixed with a few tears to cry As you begin your growth to womanhood, this fact you must know, You’ll always be my source of pride, no matter where you go. You must stand up tall and proud, within you feel no fear. For all you dreams and goals, sit before you very near. With God’s love in your heart and the world by its tail. You’ll always be my winner, and victory will prevail. For you this poem was I written, with help from I above, To tell you in a rhythm of your Mother’s heartfelt Love!”

KEN KESEY –”The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer.”       

KEN WILBER –”Bad Gardens copy, good gardens create, great gardens transcend. What all great gardens have in common are their ability to pull the sensitive viewer out of him or herself and into the garden, so completely that the separate self-sense disappears entirely and at least for a brief moment one is ushered into a non-dual and timeless awareness. A great garden, in other words, is mystical no matter what its actual content.”   

KENA UPANISHAD –”If you think that you know well the truth of Brahmn, know that you know little. What you think to be Brahmn in your self, or what you think to be Brahmn in the gods — that is not Brahmn. What is indeed the truth of Brahmn you must therefore learn. He truly knows Brahmn who knows Him as beyond knowledge; he who thinks that he knows, knows not. The ignorant think that Brahmn is known, but the wise know Him to be beyond knowledge.”           

KENA UPANISHAD –”That which speech cannot express but that by which speech is expressed is Brahman. Know that alone as Brahman, not that which people worship here. That which cannot be felt by the mind but that which enables the mind to feel, that is Brahman.”

These Meitei waters before us resplendent is what we call our Loktak. A fresh wind caressing the waters, quickens the waves to a dance; on boats are our women afloat, their fishing nets exulting. These Meitei waters before us resplendent is what we call our Loktak.” 

KHWAJA ABDULLAH ANSARI –”From the unman fest I came, And pitched my tent, in the forest of material existence. I passed through mineral and vegetable kingdoms, Then my mental equipment carried me into the animal kingdom; Having reached there I crossed into the beyond; Then in the crystal clear shell of human heart I nursed the drops of Self in a Pearlier, And in association with good men Wandered round the Prayer House, And having experienced that, crossed beyond it; Then I took the road that leads to Him, And became a slave at His gate; Then the duality disappeared And I became absorbed in Him.” 

KIERKEGAARD –”Above all, do not lose your desire to walk: every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every, illness; I have walked myself into my best thoughts… Thus if one just keeps on walking, everything will be all right.”

That is what is within your control, and that’s the only permanent thing at the moment i can see… No obstacles should be allowed to derail you from your dreams. All of us are placed differently in this world — in different cultures, homes, environments. The higher the adversity, the greater the courage life demands: the higher the mountain the longer the climb. It is imperative that women continue climbing… Every day is important for tomorrow. Cultivate self-awareness with fortitude and courage. Don’t ever give up.”

KIRAN DHAR –”Your message eternal, flows gently forth, “No one is a stranger, my child, The whole world is yours. If you want peace of your mind With others do not find fault. Whenever in distress remember me And say to yourself I have a Mother. To those who have come to me And to those who will come in the future, To all my children, give them my love And let them know That my blessings with them forever are”.

It spoke of what I needed to know Now I fast not, nor do I pray I go nowhere but travel in a way “And find the Truth, as wisdom did say Inside myself,  at work and play. It is not holy in the worldly sense It needs not knowledge, smoke, incense It is not demanding of ritual and fast It wants nothing that will not last It’s AU-That-Is’, never surpassed My future, my present and my past.”       

KISHORE ASTHANA –”I have waited long/ In this darkened place/ But I sleep not/ lest I miss/ Those dainty steps/ that beloved face I wait, and waiting in me/ My music sleeps/ Its strings wet with unshed tears/ Its flutes but exhausted reeds The dancing bells have closed their eyes/ And arm in arm they lie aside/ But I wait with bated breath/ For I am sure you said ‘tonight’ My song that was, is now a hymn/ Even the grapes are now old wine/ This bed alas, an unfulfilled altar/ But the dawn is not yet,/ Beloved mine.”
