I am tomorrow, or some future day, what I establish today. I am today what I established yesterday or some previous day.
Now, there is always a tremendous fear of science and progressing forward into areas of the unknown and it is a valid fear. Some of the genetic alterations of food are a little edgy.
Surely God would not have created such a being as man, with an ability to grasp the infinite, to exist only for a day! No, no, man was made for immortality.
We seem to have a compulsion these days to bury time capsules in order to give those people living in the next century or so some idea of what we are like.
When I was younger, studying classical music, I really had to put in the time. Three hours a day is not even nice - you have to put in six.
A house cannot be made habitable in a day; and, after all, how few days go to make up a century.
The worst state of affairs is when science begins to concern itself with art.
Also a great part of Polish industry proved to have existed only to support the Soviet military industry, and it became superfluous and incapable of being transformed into anything else. We did not foresee that or the magnitude of these phenomena.
A word is dead when it is said, some say. I say it just begins to live that day.
I studied all about Gauguin. He was a banker. He was a banker who - he used to paint on Sundays. And one day he hated himself for painting on Sundays.
Mankind has probably done more damage to the Earth in the 20th century than in all of previous human history.
The world is given to me only once, not one existing and one perceived. Subject and object are only one. The barrier between them cannot be said to have broken down as a result of recent experience in the physical sciences, for this barrier does not exist.
I think there are good men and women in all decades. We've grown cynical. And look at what we do to all our heroes: Churchill, FDR, Kennedy, they all had affairs. But heroic things happen every day.
I then endeavoured to show that it is more especially in the thorough conformity with law which natural phenomena and natural products exhibit, and in the comparative ease with which laws can be stated, that this difference exists.
The usual approach of science of constructing a mathematical model cannot answer the questions of why there should be a universe for the model to describe. Why does the universe go to all the bother of existing?
The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.
The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.
If there is one place on the face of earth where all the dreams of living men have found a home from the very earliest days when man began the dream of existence, it is India.
False facts are highly injurious to the progress of science, for they often endure long; but false views, if supported by some evidence, do little harm, for every one takes a salutary pleasure in proving their falseness.
Science does not know its debt to imagination. Goethe did not believe that a great naturalist could exist without this faculty.
I think anybody over 30 plays parents because it happens in your thirties and so that's kind of a natural progression. But I'm definitely drawn to it. It's probably the most intense, passionate thing that happens to you as you get older.
What exists outside is a man's concern; let no woman give advice; and do no mischief within doors.
A well-spent day brings happy sleep.
In human intercourse the tragedy begins, not when there is misunderstanding about words, but when silence is not understood.
The human soul has still greater need of the ideal than of the real. It is by the real that we exist; it is by the ideal that we live.
