Herbert S Gaskill Quotes

"It is an unfortunate fact that proofs can be very misleading. Proofs exist to establish once and for all, according to very high standards, that certain mathematical statements are irrefutable facts. What is unfortunate about this is that a proof, in spite of the fact that it is perfectly correct, does not in any way have to be enlightening. Thus, mathematicians, and mathematics students, are faced with two problems: the generation of proofs, and the generation of internal enlightenment. To understand a theorem requires enlightenment. If one has enlightenment, one knows in ones soul why a particular theorem must be true."

Quotes About Rare Friends

"The more I dim my eyes over print and frazzle my brain over abstract ideas, the more I appreciate the delight of being basically an animal wrapped in a sensitive skin: sex, the resistance of rock, the taste and touch of snow, the feel of the sun, good wine and a rare beefsteak and the company of friends around a fire with a guitar and lousy old cowboy songs.

Quotes About Young Love Being Stupid

"Terror"There is something About youThat seems so youngSo trustingThis is the part of you that I most love And the part of you that I am most frightened to hurt Do you think the German poetsWhen speaking of the terror of loveMeant the terror that comes From knowingWe can be harmed Or from knowingWe have the power to hurtOf these two terrorsThe second is the greaterHumanitys deeper fear Perhaps it is so Even with Americans Who arm their leaders Not for fear of being destroyed But because in disarming them for a momentAll the harm done would be exposed Leaving the people Limping home in shameLike OedipusWho was haunted by mirrorsThe terror that comesFrom knowing you have the power to hurtThis is the greater fearPerhaps this is why our dogsCan look into our eyes UnflinchinglyWith unconditional loveIt is not because they are too stupid to know that somedayWe may casually break their heartsBut because they are wise enough to know thatThey will never break ours" - Author: Tara Sophia Bahna James

Quotes About Greatest Moments In Life

"The Hour-Hand of Life --- Life consists of rare, isolated moments of the greatest significance, and of innumerably many intervals, during which at best the silhouettes of those moments hover about us. Love, springtime, every beautiful melody, mountains, the moon, the sea – all these speak completely to the heart but once, if in fact they ever do get a chance to speak completely. For many men do not have those moments at all, and are themselves intervals and intermissions in the symphony of real life." - Author: Friedrich Nietzsche

Quotes About Hukka

"Jokainen on nähnyt, miten vesi juoksee vesikellosta. Samalla tavoin kuluu ihmisen aika, mutta ihmisen aikaa ei voi mitata vesikellon mukaan, vaan ainoastaan kaiken sen mukaan mitä ihmiselle tapahtuu. Tämä on suuri ja ylevä totuus ja täysin ihminen ymmärtää sen vasta vanhuutensa päivinä, jolloin hänen aikansa juoksee hukkaan eikä hänelle enää tapahdu mitään, vaikka hän luulee paljonkin tapahtuvan ja vasta jälkeenpäin huomaa, ettei mitään ole tapahtunut. Sillä kun ihmiselle tapahtuu paljon ja hänen sydämensä muuttuu ja vaihtaa muotoaan, silloin voi yksi ainoa päivä olla hänelle pitempi kuin vuosi ja kaksi vuotta, jotka hän tekee työtä ja elää yksinkertaista elämää itse muuttumatta." - Author: Mika Waltari
