Seeker, empty the boat, lighten the load, be free of craving and judgment and hatred, and feel the joy of the way.
Back of the beating hammer By which the steel is wrought, Back of the workshop's clamor The seeker may find the thought.
If you would be a real seeker after truth, it is necessary that at least once in your life you doubt, as far as possible, all things.
I have been and still am a seeker, but I have ceased to question stars and books; I have begun to listen to the teaching my blood whispers to me.
The Bible is no lazy man's book! Much of its treasure, like the valuable minerals stored in the bowels of the earth, only yield up themselves to the diligent seeker.

A seeker of truth will never begin by discounting his opponent's statement as unworthy of trust.

How peacefully he sleep!
Yet may his ever-questing spirit, freed at length
from all the frettings of this little world,

Fairfield his name. Perchance celestial fields
disclosing long sought secrets of the past
Spread 'neath his enraptured gaze
And beasts and men that to his earthly sight

Seeker of truth and light through all eternity!

No, a true seeker, one who truly wished to find, could accept no doctrine. But the man who has found what he sought, such a man could approve of every doctrine, each and every one, every path, every goal; nothing separated him any longer from all those thousands of others who lived in the eternal, who breathed the Divine.
The seeker after truth should be humbler than the dust.
God reveals Himself, unfailingly, to the solitary, thoughtful seeker.
Honore de Balzac
