10 Osho Quotes

13. “If you love a person, you accept the total person. With all the defects. Because those defects are a part of the person. Never try to change a person you love, because the very effort to change says that you love half, and the other half of the person is not accepted. When you love, you simply love.”

14. “People say love is blind because they do not know what love is. I say unto you, only love has eyes; other than love, everything is blind.”

Osho quotes on life

22. “I love this world because it is imperfect. It is imperfect, and that’s why it is growing; if it was perfect it would have been dead.”

23. “I live my life based on two principles: One, I live as if today was my last day on earth. Two, I live today as if I am going to live forever.”

26. “If you love a flower, don’t pick it up. Because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love. So if you love a flower, let it be. Love is not about possession. Love is about appreciation.”

27. “Sadness gives depth. Happiness gives height. Sadness gives roots. Happiness gives branches. Happiness is like a tree going into the sky, and sadness is like the roots going down into the womb of the earth. Both are needed and the higher a tree goes, the deeper it goes, simultaneously. The bigger the tree, the bigger will be its roots. In fact, it is always in proportion. That’s its balance.”
