Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj Quotes

"You may die a hundred deaths without a break in the mental turmoil. Or, you may keep your body and die only in the mind. The death of the mind is the birth of wisdom."

William Lawrence Bragg Quotes

"[Presently, science undergraduates] do not learn to write clearly and briefly, marshalling their points in due and aesthetically satisfying order, and eliminating inessentials. They are inept at those turns of phrase or happy analogy which throw a flying bridge across a chasm of misunderstanding and make contact between mind and mind."

Jonathan Frid Quotes

Quotes About Goethe Art

"The division of our culture is making us more obtuse than we need be: we can repair communications to some extent: but, as I have said before, we are not going to turn out men and women who understand as much of their world as Piero della Francesca did of his, or Pascal, or Goethe. With good fortune, however, we can educate a large proportion of our better minds so that they are not ignorant of the imaginative experience, both in the arts and in science, nor ignorant either of the endowments of applied science, of the remediable suffering of most of their fellow humans, and of the responsibilities which, once seen, cannot be denied." - Author: C.P. Snow

Quotes About Sometimes I Wonder

Sometimes I even dialed your parents number but then I wondered what Id say to you. We had left it too long. How would we ever get around the silence, which was like an elephant sitting in the room?" - Author: Michael Robotham

Quotes About Fitness Journey

Quotes About Esclavitud

"Que no parezca mal a los metafísicos y a los idealistas religiosos, filósofos, políticos o poetas: la idea de Dios implica la abdicación de la razón humana y de la justicia humana, es la negación más decisiva de la libertad humana y lleva necesariamente a la esclavitud de los hombres, tanto en la teoría como en la práctica.A menos de querer la esclavitud y el envilecimiento de los hombres, como lo quieren los jesuitas, como lo quieren los monjes, los pietistas o los metodistas protestantes, no podemos, no debemos hacer la menor concesión ni al dios de la teología ni al de la metafísica porque en ese alfabeto místico, el que comienza por decir A deberá fatalmente acabar diciendo Z, y el que quiere adorar a Dios debe, sin hacerse ilusiones pueriles, renunciar bravamente a su libertad y a su humanidad.Si Dios existe, el hombre es esclavo; ahora bien, el hombre puede y debe ser libre: por consiguiente, Dios no existe.Desafío a quienquiera que sea a salir de ese círculo, y ahora, escojamos." - Author: Mikhail Bakunin

Quotes About Luho

Quotes About Saw Saw

"That deepest thing, that recognition, that knowledge, that sense of kinship began the first time I saw you,and it is the same now - only a thousand times deeper and tenderer.

We are together like this and nothing can shake us apart." - Author: Kahlil Gibran

Quotes About Pretty Little Things

"Growing up is all about getting hurt. And then getting over it. You hurt. You recover. You move on. Odds are pretty good youre just going to get hurt again. But each time, you learn something. Each time you come out of it a little stronger, and at some point you realize there are more flavors of pain than coffee...Pain does two things: it teaches you, tells you that youre alive. Then it passes away and leaves you changed...and everything that will ever happen to you in life is going to involve it in one way or another. (pg. 282)" - Author: Jim Butcher
