Angels from their wisdom go still further. They say that not only every thing good and true is from the Lord, but every thing of life as well.
Going out hanging out with the troops, and you know it's kind of all summed up in the TV show, I don't what else I can say about it. It's a great thing to do, something I'm definitely proud of.
He who regards all things as one is a companion of Nature.
Words are cheap. The biggest thing you can say is 'elephant'.
If anybody says he can think about quantum physics without getting giddy, that only shows he has not understood the first thing about them.
Those things that nature denied to human sight, she revealed to the eyes of the soul.
It is not as though the process of production holds any mystery for me, I know exactly what it involves and I know the predominant concern in shooting one of those things is production values - or as they would say, seeing it all up there on screen.
Any movie that has that spirit and says things can be changed is worth making.
I am well aware that many will say that no one can possibly speak with spirits and angels so long as he lives in the body; and many will say that it is all fancy, others that I relate such things in order to gain credence, and others will make other objections.
Shakespeare possesses the power of subordinating nature for the purposes of expression, beyond all poets.? His imperial muse tosses the creation like a bauble from hand to hand, and uses it to embody any caprice of thought that is uppermost in his mind.? The remotest spaces of nature are visited, and the farthest sundered things are brought together, by subtle spiritual connection.? We are made aware that magnitude of material things is relative, and all objects shrink and expand to serve the passion of the poet.
It is a characteristic of wisdom not to do desperate things.
It is wrong to think that the task of physics is to find out how Nature is. Physics concerns what we say about Nature.
Entertainment today constantly emphasises the message that things are wonderful the way they are. But there is another kind of cinema, which says that change is possible and necessary and it's up to you.
We are to admit no more causes of natural things than such as are both true and sufficient to explain their appearances.
I want to be able to look back and say, 'I've done everything I can, and I was successful.' I don't want to look back and say I should have done this or that. I'd like to change things for the younger generation of swimmers coming along.
Never in any case say I have lost such a thing, but I have returned it. Is your child dead? It is a return. Is your wife dead? It is a return. Are you deprived of your estate? Is not this also a return?
Nature and human life are as various as our several constitutions. Who shall say what prospect life offers to another?
The most important things are the hardest things to say. They are the things you get ashamed of because words diminish your feelings - words shrink things that seem timeless when they are in your head to no more than living size when they are brought out.
Of all the things which wisdom acquires to produce the blessedness of the complete life far the greatest is the possession of Friendship.
I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We've created life in our own image.
Doubtless there are things in nature which have not yet been seen. If an artist discovers them, he opens the way for his successors.
We still have a tradition certainly in English television; it's faded a bit in the last five years, but we still have a tradition where the important thing is the quality and the challenging nature of the programming.
Well, most men have bound thier eyes with one or another handkerchief, and attached themselves to some one of these communities of opinion.? This conformity makes them not false in a few particulars, author of a few lies, but false in all particulars.? Thier every? truth is not quite true.? Thier two is not the? real two, thier four is not the real four; so that every word they say chagrins us and we know not where to begin to set them right.?Meantime nature is not slow to equip us in the prison uniform of the party to which we adhere.? We come to wear one cut of face and figure, and aquire, by degrees, the gentlest asinine expression.
Of all the things which wisdom provides to make us entirely happy, much the greatest is the possession of friendship.
For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver.
