Quotes 10



You are never given a wish without also being given

the power to make it come true.
Richard Bach




We lead our lives like water flowing down a hill,
going more or less in one

direction until we splash into something
that forces us to find a new course.

Arthur Dresden




In rivers, the water that you touch is the last of what has passed

and the first of that which comes; so with present time.

Leonardo da Vinci




Magic is one of the subtlest and
most difficult of the sciences and arts.

There is more opportunity for errors of comprehension,
judgment and practice than in any branch of physics.

Aleister Crowley




In each age men of genius undertake the ascent. From below, the world follows them with their eyes. These men go up the mountain, enter the clouds, disappear and reappear. People watch them, mark them. They walk by the side of precipices. They daringly pursue their road. See them aloft, see them in the distance; they are but black specks. On they go. The road is uneven, its difficulties constant. At each step a wall, at each step a trap. As they rise, the cold increases. They must make their ladder, cut the ice and walk on it, hewing the steps in haste. A storm is raging. Nevertheless they go forward in their madness. The air becomes difficult to breath. The abyss yawns below them. Some fall. Others stop and retrace their steps; there is a sad weariness. The bold ones continue, eyed by the eagles. The lightning plays about them, the hurricane furious. No matter, they persevere.

Victor Hugo




The eye that directs a needle in the delicate meshes of embroidery

will equally well bisect a star with the spider web of the micrometer.

Maria Mitchell





A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

Confucius




Those who have knowledge, don't predict.
Those who predict, don't have knowledge.

Lao Tzu, 6th Century BC Chinese Poet





The journey is the reward.

Taoist Saying




All great progress takes place when two sciences come together,

and when their resemblance proclaims itself,
despite the apparent disparity of their substance.

Henri Poincare




You see, but you do not observe.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle


The Eye




I was thrown out of college for cheating on the metaphysics exam.

I looked into the soul of the boy next to me.

Woody Allen




Begin at the beginning and go on


till you come to the end; then stop.

Louis Carroll




A director makes only one movie in his life.

Then he breaks it into pieces and makes it again.

Jean Renoir (Director)





We all run on two clocks. One is the outside clock, which ticks away our decades and brings us ceaselessly to the dry season. The other is the inside clock, where you are your own timekeeper and determine your own chronology, your own internal weather and your own rate of living. Sometimes the inner clock runs itself out long before the outer one, and you see a dead man going through the motions of living.

Thomas Earnshaw




Have I done the world good,

or have I added a menace?

Guglielmo Marconi




Wisdom is not a product of schooling but

of the life-long attempt to acquire it.

Albert Einstein
