[As To Your Newton, I Confess I Do Not Understand His Void And His Gravity; I Admit He Has Demonstrated The Movement Of The Heavenly Bodies With More Exactitude Than His Forerunners; But You Will Admit It Is An Absurdity To Maintain The Existence Of Nothing.[Letter To Voltaire, 25 Nov. 1777]]

Tom North Quotes

"Being in the depths of the ocean was like being in the womb, suspended in a liquid environment, listening to my own breathing and heartbeat. Whether it was the serenity and security of being surrounded by this living liquid, or the total distraction of the adventure of the unknown which took me far away from the daily weight of the child abuse and violence at home, I sank beneath the surface, and if only for those few moments, was free."

Hope you understand my perspective of life, that I assume is right."

Quotes About Wajah

"Bolehkah menyatakan kerinduan? Perasaan kepada seseorang?Tentu saja boleh. Tapi jika kita belum siap untuk mengikatkan diri dalam hubungan yang serius, ikatan yang bahkan oleh negara pun diakui dan dilindungi, maka sampaikanlah perasaan itu pada angin saat menerpa wajah, pada tetes air hujan saat menatap keluar jendela, pada butir nasi saat menatap piring, pada cicak di langit-langit kamar saat sendirian dan tak tahan lagi hingga boleh jadi menangis.Dan jangan lupa, sampaikanlah perasaan itu pada yang maha menyayangi. Semoga semua kehormatan perasaan kita dibalas dengan sesuatu yang lebih baik. Semua kehati2an, menghindari hal-hal yang dibenci, akan membawa kita pada kesempatan terbaik. Semoga." - Author: Tere Liye

Quotes About Love Coming To Those Who Wait

"He had in those days imagined himself capable of extraordinary heroisms and endurances which would make the girl he loved forget the awkward hands and the spotty chin of adolescence. Everything had seemed possible. One could laugh at daydreams, but so long as you had the capacity to daydream there was a chance that you might develop some of the qualities of which you dreamed.
