Bob Roth: "Deep within every one of us is a level of the mind that's already quiet, silent. And in Transcendental Meditation we access it." 
Dr Oz: "There have been lots of studies looking at TM. Without any question it seems to reduce blood pressure as much as many prescription medications. And if I can give you a solution that reduces blood pressure, which is the number one cause of aging, that doesn't require medication I think we ought to take advantage of it." 
Ray Dalio: "If there's stress, I'll just break off and go into meditation. It will just wash off of me." 
Mario Batali: "Transcendental Meditation gives me a wider base from which to see more opportunities." 
Mary Schmidt Campbell: "When you walk into a room and you walk in with that calm and with that different pace and rhythm, it has an impact on the people who are around you."
