The Compass Cultural Association support events in the New York area concerning the harmonious development of mankind.
The possibility of having an aim is what makes the difference between an ordinary person and those persons who has felt the urge to locate themselves, to escape from those daily prisons which constantly impoverish them without giving them direction. It is hence essential, once the goal has been identified, to determine a route and the vehicle with which to undertake the journey of harmonious development.It is necessary for people who want to live in a full and conscious way to learn how to develop new functions that make them spherical, complete, and that allow them to take advantage of every situation.

"If we could know first where we are and whiter where are tending, we could better judge what to do and how to do it"
“Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditay prejudices, but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence “
“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again ad expecting different results”
“Never regard your study as a duty, but as the enviable opportunity to learn to know the liberating influence of beauty in the realm of the spirit for your own personal joy and to the profit of the community to which your later work belongs”
“Try not t become a man of success, but rather to become a man of value”
“To study history means submitting to chaos and nevertheless retaining faith In order and meaning. It is a very serious task , young man, and possibly a tragic one. There’s no reality except the one contained within us. Many people… take images outside them for reality and never allow The world within them to assert itself. Everything becomes a little different As soon as it is spoken out loud. Eternity is a mere moment, just long enough for a joke.”
"There is nothing good or bad in this world, if thought does not make it so." "Our doubts are traitors and they make us lose the good that we could obtain because we are scared of trying." "We know what we are but not what we could become"
“Ideas are not the truth; the truth is something that has to be experienced directly, from moment to moment."
"Actions are what count. Our thoughts , even if they can be good, they are false pearls until they are not turned into actions. Be the change you wish to see in the world."
MOHANDAS KARAMCHAD GANDHI
"Be faithful in small things, because it is in them that your strenght lies".
"God doesn't require us to succeed: He only requires that you try".
