[The Sanscrit Language, Whatever Be Its Antiquity, Is Of A Wonderful Structure; More Perfect Than The Greek, More Copious Than The Latin, And More Exquisitely Refined Than Either, Yet Bearing To Both Of Them A Stronger Affinity, Both In The Roots Of Verbs And The Forms Of Grammar, Than Could Possibly Have Been Produced By Accident; So Strong Indeed, That No Philologer Could Examine Them All Three, Without Believing Them To Have Sprung From Some Common Source, Which, Perhaps, No Longer Exists; There Is A Similar Reason, Though Not Quite So Forcible, For Supposing That Both The Gothic And The Celtic, Though Blended With A Very Different Idiom, Had The Same Origin With The Sanscrit; And The Old Persian Might Be Added To The Same Family.]

Quotes About Attaining Your Dreams

"Never be frightened at your own faint-heartedness in attaining love. Dont be frightened overmuch even at your evil actions. I am sorry I can say nothing more consoling to you, for love in action is a harsh and dreadful thing compared with love in dreams. Love in dreams is greedy for immediate action, rapidly performed and in the sight of all. Men will even give their lives if only the ordeal does not last long but is soon over, with all looking on and applauding as though on the stage. But active love is labor and fortitude, and for some people too, perhaps, a complete science." - Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Quotes About Romanov

"You see, Im a bachelor , a man of no consequence and not used to society; besides, I have nothing before me, Im set, Im running to seed and…and have you noticed, Rodion Romanovitch, that in our Petersburg circles, if two clever men meet who are not intimate, but respect each other, like you and me, it takes them half an hour before they can find a subject for conversation.- they are dumb, they sit opposite each other and feel awkward? Everyone has subjects of conversation, ladies, for instance… people in high society always have their subjects of conversation, cest de rigueur, but people of the middle sort like us, thinking people that is, are always tongue-tied and awkward. What is the reason of it? Whether it is the lack of public interest, or whether it is we are so honest we dont want to deceive one another, I dont know." - Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Quotes About Consciousness Mind

"All thought of something is at the same time self-consciousness [...] At the root of all our experiences and all our reflections, we find [...] a being which immediately recognises itself, [...] and which knows its own existence, not by observation and as a given fact, nor by inference from any idea of itself, but through direct contact with that existence. Self-consciousness is the very being of mind in action." - Author: Maurice Merleau Ponty
