1. "I think, then, that man, after having satisfied his first longing for facts, wanted something fuller - some grouping, some adaptation to his capacity and experience, of the links of this vast chain of events which his sight could not take in."
Author: Alfred De Vigny

Author: Anatole France

Author: Andre Bramble
4. "Children see more than adults. As grown men and women we are too engrossed in what we say to one another, in what the next move is; we are not enough in the present. Children carry a superior knowledge: they are closer to the root of things, of what is implied and not said."
Author: Bernie Mcgill
5. "I don't care who the president is - it ain't just all about who's black or who's white or who's Republican or Democrat, it's about who is for the betterment of people, period."
Author: Big Boi
6. "It is my mind, with its store of images, that gives the world color and sound; and that supremely real and rational certainty which I can "experience" is, in its most simple form, an exceedingly complicated structure of mental images. Thus there is, in a certain sense, nothing that is directly experienced except the mind itself. Everything is mediated through the mind, translated, filtered, allegorized, twisted, even falsified by it. We are . . . enveloped in a cloud of changing and endlessly shifting images."
Author: C.G. Jung
7. "The measure of (mental) health is flexibility (not comparison to some ‘norm'), the freedom to learn from experience … to be influenced by reasonable arguments … and the appeal to the emotions … and especially the freedom to cease when sated. The essence of illness is the freezing of behavior into unalterable and insatiable patterns. Lawrence Kubie"
Author: David Brin
8. "What if we take away the cool music and the cushioned chairs? What if the screens are gone and the stage is no longer decorated? What if the air conditioning is off and the comforts are removed? Would his Word still be enough for his people to come together? At Brook Hills we decided to try to answer this question. We actually stripped away the entertainment value and invited people to come together simply to study God's Word for hours at a time. We called it Secret Church. We set a date—one Friday night—when we would gather from six o'clock in the evening until midnight, and for six hours we would do nothing but study the Word and pray. We would interrupt the six-hour Bible study periodically to pray for our brothers and sisters around the world who are forced to gather secretly. We would also pray for ourselves, that we would learn to love the Word as they do."
Author: David Platt
9. "The more invested I am in my own ideas about reality, the more those experiences will feel like victimizations rather than the ups and downs of relating. Actually, I believe that the less I conceptualize things that way, the more likely it is that people will want to stay by me, because they will not feel burdened, consciously or unconsciously, by my projections, judgments, entitlements, or unrealistic expectations."
Author: David Richo
10. "Lead yourself, lead your superiors, lead your peers, and free your people to do the same. All else is trivia."
Author: Dee Hock
11. "I can go into the wilderness and not see anyone for days and experience a kind of space that hasn't changed for tens of thousands of years. Having that experience was necessary to my perception of how photography can look at the changes humanity has brought about in the landscape. My work does become a kind of lament."
Author: Edward Burtynsky
12. "Cousin Mary hoped her journey through periods of dark and light was like that of a Swiss train toiling up the mountainside, in and out of tunnels but always a little farther up the hill at each emergence. But she could only hope that this was so, she did not feel it. It seemed to her that she did not advance at all and that what she was learning now was only to hold on. The Red Queen in Alice Through the Looking Glass, she remembered, had had to run fast merely to stay where she was, but doubtless she had run in hope, disdaining despair; and hope, Cousin Mary discovered, when deliberately opposed to despair, was one of the tough virtues."
Author: Elizabeth Goudge
13. "Success breeds success, and failure leads to a sort of fallow period."
Author: Felicity Kendal
14. "... just as when we see a pig in a litter larger than the other pigs, we know that by an unalterable law of the Inscrutable it will some day be larger than an elephant,—just as we know, when we see weeds and dandelions growing more and more thickly in a garden, that they must, in spite of all our efforts, grow taller than the chimney-pots and swallow the house from sight, so we know and reverently acknowledge, that when any power in human politics has shown for any period of time any considerable activity, it will go on until it reaches to the sky."
Author: G.K. Chesterton
15. "Time has a way of reminding us of its perishable nature in the retrospect of our reflections."
Author: Gary Westfal
16. "In her experience all her friends relied, Heaven was her help and nature was her guide."
Author: George Crabbe
17. "Nora had bewust een paar kinderen gewild, niet in de eerste plaats uit een emotioneel hunkeren naar het moederschap, maar misschien vooral omdat grootbrengen, opvoeden, een uitdaging inhielden, hoge eisen stelden aan inventiviteit, aan de gave tot voorbereiden, anticiperen, op het juiste ogenblik toepassen, die het destijds Muisje Bloemcaps mogelijk hadden gemaakt met superieur gemak alle lesmateriaal te beheersen."
Author: Hella S. Haasse
18. "It is by a mathematical point only that we are wise, as the sailor or fugitive slave keeps the polestar in his eye; but that is sufficient guidance for all our life. We may not arrive at our port within a calculable period, but we would preserve the true course."
Author: Henry David Thoreau
19. "The American economic, political, and social organization has given to its citizens the benefits of material prosperity, political liberty, and a wholesome natural equality; and this achievement is a gain, not only to Americans, but to the world and to civilization."
Author: Herbert Croly
20. "I realize that some people will not believe that a child of little more than ten years is capable of having such feelings. My story is not intended for them. I am telling it to those who have a better knowledge of man. The adult who has learned to translate a part of his feelings into thoughts notices the absence of these thoughts in a child, and therefore comes to believe that the child lacks these experiences, too. Yet rarely in my life have I felt and suffered as deeply as at that time."
Author: Hermann Hesse
21. "But although all our knowledge begins with experience, it does not follow that it arises from experience."
Author: Immanuel Kant

Author: J.G. Ballard

Author: Jacques Philippe
24. "Psychology more than any other science has had its pseudo-scientific no less than its scientific period."
Author: James Mark Baldwin
25. "Parents of recovered children, and I've met hundreds, all share the same experience of doubters and deniers telling us our child must have never even had autism or that the recovery was simply nature's course. We all know better, and frankly we're too busy helping other parents to really care."
Author: Jenny McCarthy
26. "...el pesado traje de buzo es el cuerpo físico y el mar es el océano de la vida. Al nacer, el hombre se pone el traje de buzo, pero su espíritu está conectado siempre por una cuerda a la luz de arriba. El hombre desciende a las profundidades del mar de la tristeza y la mortalidad para buscar tesoros escondidos de sabiduría, pues la experiencia y la comprensión son perlas valiosísimas y para ganarlas el hombre debe soportar toda clase de cosas. Cuando encuentra el tesoro, lo izan al bote y, quitándose la pesada escafandra, respira el aire fresco y vuelve a sentirse LIBRE. Los sabios se dan cuenta de que este incidente que llamamos vida es solamente un viaje al fondo del mar, que hemos estado allí muchas veces y volveremos a bajar hasta que encontremos el tesoro..."
Author: Joel Whitton
27. "Poetry being the sign of that which all men desire, even though the desire be unconscious, intensity of life or completeness of experience, the universality of its appeal is a matter of course."
Author: John Drinkwater
28. "The monsters of our childhood do not fade away, neither are they ever wholly monstrous. But neither, in my experience, do we ever reach a plane of detachment regarding our parents, however wise and old we may become. To pretend otherwise is to cheat."
Author: John Le Carre
29. "It was as if my father had given me, by way of temperament, an impossibly wild, dark, and unbroken horse. It was a horse without a name, and a horse with no experience of a bit between its teeth. My mother taught me to gentle it; gave me the discipline and love to break it; and- as Alexander had known so intuitively with Bucephalus- she understood, and taught me, that the beast was best handled by turning it toward the sun."
Author: Kay Redfield Jamison
30. "I think,' said the little Queen, smiling, 'that your friend must be the richest man in all the world.' 'I am,' returned the Scarecrow; 'but not on account of my money. For I consider brains to be far superior to money, in every way. You may have noticed that if one has money without brains, he cannot use it to advantage; but if one has brains without money, they will enable him to live comfortably to the end of days.' 'At the same time,' declared the Tin Woodman, 'you must acknowledge that a good heart is a thing that brains cannot create, and that money cannot buy. Perhaps, after all it is I who am the richest man in all the world.' 'You are both rich, my friends,' said Ozma gently; 'and your riches are the only riches worth having - the riches of content!' - The Marvellous Land Of Oz by L. Frank Baum pg 192 chapter 24"
Author: L. Frank Baum
31. "Liraz had heard it said that there was only one emotion which, in recollection, was capable of resurrecting the full immediacy and power of the original - one emotion that time could never fade, and that would drag you back any number of years into the pure, undiluted feeling, as if you were living it anew. It wasn't love - not that she had any experience of that one - and it wasn't hate, or anger, or happiness, or even grief. Memories of those were but echoes of the true feeling. It was shame. Shame never faded, and Liraz realized only now that this was the baseline of her emotions - her bitter, curdled "normal" - and that her soul was poisoned soil in which nothing good could grow."
Author: Laini Taylor
32. "I know it's an experience that I need to have if God's putting me through it."
Author: Lil Wayne
33. "I learned from my mistakes; I was able to accept the things that were my fault and to be able to grow from that. You have to be able to see growth from your experiences, and I've done that."
Author: LisaRaye McCoy Misick
34. "Bulldogs have been known to fall on their swords when confronted by my superior tenacity."
Author: Margaret Halsey
35. "I wished I'd known weeks ago that we didn't have to be chaperoned. I remembered my old daydreams: the prince and I, alone together, cuddling and whispering... I probably would have wised up and brocken the engagement sooner."
Author: Margaret Peterson Haddix
36. "Nature has no originality--I mean, no large ability in the matter of inventing new things, new ideas, new stage effects. She has a superb and amazing and infinitely varied equipment of old ones, but she never adds to them. She repeats--repeats--repeats--repeats. Examine your memory and your experience; you will find it is true."
Author: Mark Twain
37. "I think the resolution involved in the high-def, Blu-ray image demands we pay attention to every detail to a level we've never seen before. The audiences have to believe everything they're seeing. As viewers, we're all so experienced and so much smarter than we realize. With Blu-ray, there will be less tricking of the eye."
Author: Michael Mann
38. "The rest of the question-and-answer period was pretty standard stuff, with a few hardballs thrown in just to keep things interesting. Where did the senator stand on the death penalty? Given that most corpses tended to get up and try to eat folks, he didn't see it as a productive pursuit. What was his opinion on public health care? Failure to keep people healthy enough to stay alive bordered on criminal negligence. Was he prepared to face the ongoing challenges of disaster preparedness? After the mass reanimations following the explosions in San Diego, he couldn't imagine any presidency surviving without improved disaster planning."
Author: Mira Grant
39. "Se il bambino vuole scalare una montagna, lasciatelo fare. Se vuole arrampicarsi su un albero, lasciatelo fare. Lasciatelo andare dovunque possa sperimentare l'avventura e la sua capacità di non cadere in preda alla paura. Anche se morisse qualche bambino ogni anno – scalando montagne o tuffandosi nei fiumi o arrampicandosi sugli alberi – non avrebbe alcuna importanza. Perché, se in una comunità tutti i bambini diventassero paurosi e mancassero della capacità di non cadere in preda alla paura, tutta quella comunità, sebbene sembri viva, in realtà sarebbe morta."
Author: Osho
40. "I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience."
Author: Patrick Henry
41. "Those are the facts. It's easy to believe in facts, my dear. To believe in the story you need faith. Tell me the story as you experienced it."
Author: Patti Callahan Henry
42. "It was less a literary thing than a linguistic, philosophical preoccupation... discovering how far you can go with language to create immediate, elementary experience."
Author: Robert Morgan
43. "The self is the class (not the collection) of the experiences (or autopsychological states). The self does not belong to the expression of the basic experience, but is constructed only on a very high level."
Author: Rudolf Carnap
44. "This universe is shot through with mystery. The very fact of its being, and of our own, is a mystery absolute, and the only miracle worthy of the name. The consciousness that animates us is itself central to this mystery and the ground for any experience we might wish to call 'spiritual.' No myths need be embraced for us to commune with the profundity of our circumstance. No personal God need be worshiped for us to live in awe at the beauty and immensity of creation. No tribal fictions need be rehearsed for us to realize, one fine day, that we do, in fact, love our neighbors, that our happiness is inextricable from their own, and that our interdependence demands that people everywhere be given the opportunity to flourish."
Author: Sam Harris
45. "You don't make progress by standing on the sidelines, whimpering and complaining. You make progress by implementing ideas."
Author: Shirley Chisholm
46. "If only the physical aspects of hatha yoga are used, it is called ghatastha yoga (ghata means "physical effort"). Modern expressions like "fitness yoga" and "power yoga" that flourish within gym classes are within the same category, even if they do not derive from the original exercises' rhythm and succession. In many instances "power yoga" has a positive effect on physical health; but if there is no aim to ease the mind, to gain self-insight and control of your thoughts, and to experience the divine within you and within the universe, the deeper meaning of yoga and - possibly life - is lost."
Author: Stig Åvall Severinsen
47. "I want to dive into his being, experience him with all 5 senses, drown in the waves of wonder enveloping my existence."
Author: Tahereh Mafi
48. "BEL-IMPERIA: Oh let me go; for in my troubled eyesNow may'st thou read that life in passion dies.HORATIO: Oh stay a while, and I will die with thee;So shalt thou yield, and yet have conquered me."
Author: Thomas Kyd
49. "Knowing that everything comes to an end is a gift of experience, a consolation gift for knowing that we ourselves are coming to an end. Before we get it we live in a continuous present, and imagine the future as more of that present. Happiness is endless happiness, innocent of its own sure passing. Pain is endless pain."
Author: Tobias Wolff
50. "Our task is to build cultural fortresses to protect our emerging nativeness. They must be strong enough to hold at bay the powers of consumerism, the powers of greed and envy and pride. One of the most effective ways for this to come about would be for our universities to assume the awesome responsibility to both validate and educate those who want to be homecomers -- not necessarily to go home but to go someplace and dig in and begin the long search and experiment to become native."
