Ralph Waldo Emerson

“The influences of the senses has in most men overpowered the mind to the degree that the walls of space and time have come to look solid, real and insurmountable; and to speak with levity of these limits in the world is the sign of insanity.”

When one person suffers from a delusion it is called insanity; when many people suffer from a delusion it is called a religion.

Life is a puzzle of your own design. You get to choose from the multitude of pieces to create your own life picture.

Friedrich Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil

“It is not the works, but the belief which is here decisive and determines the
order of rank–to employ once more an old religious formula with a new and
deeper meaning,–it is some fundamental certainty which a noble soul has about
itself, something which is not to be sought, is not to be found, and perhaps,
also, is not to be lost.–The noble soul has reverence for itself.–“

Ayn Rand

It is not in the nature of man–nor of any living entity–to start out by giving
up, by spitting in one’s own face and damning existence; that requires a process
of corruption whose rapidity differs from man to man. Some give up at the first
touch of pressure; some sell out; some run down by imperceptible degrees and
lose their fire, never knowing when or how they lost it. Then all of these
vanish in the vast swamp of their elders who tell them persistently that
maturity consists of abandoning one’s mind; security, of abandoning one’s
values; practicality, of losing self-esteem. Yet a few hold on and move on,
knowing that that fire is not to be betrayed, learning how to give it shape,
purpose and reality. But whatever their future, at the dawn of their lives, men
seek a noble vision of man’s nature and of life’s potential.

Oysters open completely when the moon is full; and when the crab sees one it throws a piece of stone or seaweed into it and the oyster cannot close again so that it serves the crab for meat. Such is the fate of him who opens his mouth too much and thereby puts himself at the mercy of the listener.
