The one absolutely, the Intelligible, the ever Preexisting, comprehending all the universe together within the One nay, more, is not the whole world One living thing all and everywhere full of life and soul, perfect and made up out of parts likewise perfect? Now of this double unity the most perfect part (I mean of the Unity in the Intelligible World that comprehends all things in One, and of the Unity encompassing the Sensible World, that brings together all things into a single and perfect nature) is the perfection of the sovereign Sun, which is central and single, and placed in the middle of the intermediate Powers.

Julian (Emperor)

When I talk of the purpose of life, I am thinking not only of human life, but of all life on Earth and of the life which must exist upon other planets throughout the universe. It is only of life on Earth, however, that one can speak with any certainty. It seems to me that all life on Earth, the sum total of life upon the Earth, has purpose. If the means were available, we could trace our ancestry yours and mine back to the first blob of life-like material that came into being on the planet. The same thing could be done for the spider that spun his web in the grass, and of the grass in which the web was spun, the bird sitting in the tree and the tree in which he sits, the toad waiting for the fly beneath the bush, and for the fly and bush.

We will no longer impose our power on humanity. We will earn your trust ... using the wisdom left as his legacy. I asked him to choose between humans and superhumans. But he alone knew that was a false division ... and made the only choice that ever truly matters ... he chose life ... in the hope that your world and our world could be one world once again.

Mark Waid

Our life is a hope which is continually converting itself into memory and memory in its turn begets hope. Give us leave to live! The eternity that is like an eternal present, without memory and without hope, is death. Thus do ideas exist in the God-Idea, but not thus do men live in the living God, in the God-Man.

Miguel de Unamuno

All water has a perfect memory and is forever trying to get back to where it was.
