If marriage is an institution, you are going to be a slave in it. Only slaves want to live in institutions." - Rajneesh

Mind has to drop all envies and jealousies." - Rajneesh

"The love to which ego is attached is a form of jealousy - this is why nobody is as jealous as lovers are. The love which is attached to the ego is a conspiracy and a trick to possess the other.

This situation is created because of the 'love' which comes from the ego - there can never be any relation between love and the ego." - Rajneesh

"There's a certain possessiveness of writers sometimes." - William Devane

"Envy, jealousy, ambition, any kind of greed are passions; love is an action, the practice of human power, which can be practiced only in freedom and never as a result of compulsion.

In the light, the darkness simply disappears." - Rajneesh
