Krishnamurti 4 quotes 4 chapters First & Last Freedom

Chapter 1: Introduction
Until I, in my relationship to you, understand myself I am the cause of chaos, misery, destruction, fear, brutality.

Chapter 2: What Are We Seeking
Only when the mind is tranquil - through self-knowledge and not through imposed self-discipline - only then, in that tranquillity, in that silence, can reality come into being.

Chapter 3: Individual And Society
So one of the fundamental causes of the disintegration of society is imitation, and one of the disintegrating factors is the leader, whose very essence is imitation.

Chapter 4: Self-Knowledge
If we can understand ourselves as we are from moment to moment without the process of accumulation, then we shall see how there comes a tranquillity that is not a product of the mind, a tranquillity that is neither imagined nor cultivated; & only in that state of tranquillity can there be creativeness.

~J. Krishnamurti
