Quotes About Powerful Music

Quotes About Striving To Be Perfect

"Is the beauty of the Whole really enhanced by our agony? And is the Whole really beautiful? And what is beauty? Throughout all his existence man has been striving to hear the music of the spheres, and has seemed to himself once and again to catch some phrase of it, or even a hint of the whole form of it. Yet he can never be sure that he has truly heard it, nor even that there is any such perfect music at all to be heard. Inevitably so, for if it exists, it is not for him in his littleness. But one thing is certain. Man himself, at the very least, is music, a brave theme that makes music also of its vast accompaniment, its matrix of storms and stars. Man himself in his degree is eternally a beauty in the eternal form of things. It is very good to have been man. And so we may go forward together with laughter in our hearts, and peace, thankful for the past, and for our own courage. For we shall make after all a fair conclusion to this brief music that is man." - Author: Olaf Stapledon

Quotes About Heidegger Art

"W książce Foucaulta mowa jest często o "antropologicznej skończoności". Wyobrażam sobie, jak tego rodzaju formułki mogą działać na młodych. Oczywiście brzmi to uczeniej niż "nędza człowieka", "znikomość trwania" ludzkich dziejów. Z wszystkich szalbierstw najgorsze jest językowe, bo najtrudniej dostrzegalne dla ogłupionych ludzi naszej epoki. Trzeba powiedzieć, że drogę otwarł Heidegger i że jeśli jakiś filozof chce doświadczyć ostracyzmu, na własnej skórze przeżyć wymienioną wyżej "skończoność", to wystarczy mu odrzucić żargon i użyć potocznego, sensownego języka. Automatycznie wytworzy się wokół niego pustka.W sensie literackim rzadki błąd warto jest więcej od znanej, wypróbowanej i banalnej prawdy; w sensie duchowym jest wprost przeciwnie.Niezwykłość nie ma żadnej wartości na płaszczyźnie duchowej. Liczy się tylko głębia, stopień pogłębienia danego przeżycia." - Author: Emil Cioran

Quotes About Disarmed

"This cult of the standard of living....is a disorder of spiritual perception of almost pathological nature, a misjudgment of the true scale of vital values, a degradation of man not tolerable for long....If we stake everything on this one card and forget what really matters, freedom above all, we sacrifice more to the idol than is right, so that, if once the material standard of living should recede by an inch or fail to rise at the rate the cult demands, we remain politically and morally disarmed and baffled." - Author: Testy McTesterson

Quotes About Erin

"Four hundred forty-six," Cole whispered."What?" she asked.He kept his head down in what seemed to be a prayer. "He counts. Youve smiled at him four hundred and forty-six times as of a few minutes ago. He announces the number every time I see him.""Im ashamed to admit that I didnt think you were real. Considering my line of work, I should have more faith in humanity." Cole shook his head. "I think it was smile two hundred eighty-six that drove me the most crazy. It was the night train. Blake was so sick, feverish. Honestly, I was considering taking him to the hospital. But no. He didnt want to miss a smile. He wouldnt even let me drive him. Blake walked the whole way in the pouring rain for number two eighty-six." - Author: Debra Anastasia
