Georges Lemaitre Quotes

"Should a priest reject relativity because it contains no authoritative exposition on the doctrine of the Trinity? Once you realize that the Bible does not purport to be a textbook of science, the old controversy between religion and science vanishes . . . The doctrine of the Trinity is much more abstruse than anything in relativity or quantum mechanics; but, being necessary for salvation, the doctrine is stated in the Bible. If the theory of relativity had also been necessary for salvation, it would have been revealed to Saint Paul or to Moses."

Quotes About No Such Thing As Friends

"I now wish that I had spent somewhat more of my life with verse. This is not because I fear having missed out on truths that are incapable of statement in prose. There are no such truths; there is nothing about death that Swinburne and Landor knew but Epicurus and Heidegger failed to grasp. Rather, it is because I would have lived more fully if I had been able to rattle off more old chestnuts — just as I would have if I had made more close friends." - Author: Richard M. Rorty

Quotes About Seder

"Bazen... böyle birdenbire yaralanıveririz. Ama her yara iyileşir. Eninde sonunda kabuk bağlar, üstünü kapatır. Gözlerden saklanır. Çünkü hiçbir yara görülmek istemez. Yeter ki bu yara gözbebeklerine çıkmasın. Çünkü eğer gözbebeklerin yaralanırsa, bir daha asla aynı gözle bakamazsın dünyaya. Baktığın her şeyin kötü yanını görmeye başlarsın. Saklı kalmış pislikler bile kaçmaz gözlerinden. Öteki insanlar da hisseder artık aynı şeyleri görmediğini ve artık onları sevmediğini. Rahatsız olurlar. Onlar da bir daha aynı gözle bakamaz sana. Bu yüzden kimse seni yakınında görmek istemez. Resim aynı resimdir aslında, değişen senin gözlerindir. Eğer sen çıkarsan resimden, her şey eskisi gibi kalır, herkes rahat eder. Şahsen bence en iyisi, gitmektir böyle durumlarda. Üstüne üstüne gitmek. İnadına!" - Author: Elif Shafak
