The Cosmos is all that is or ever was or ever will be. Our feeblest contemplations of the Cosmos stir us ó there is a tingling in the spine, a catch in the voice, a faint sensation as if a distant memory, of falling from a height. We know we are approaching the greatest of mysteries.

Carl Sagan

The Germans will make a few scattered attacks, then go away. The Romans will enjoy a fine September.

Pietro Badoglio

Tertiary syphilis, as my readers will not need reminding perhaps, comes, when it comes at all, about ten years after the initial infection. About two thirds of syphilitics miss it, especially if they are women or coloured. It is believed, though without solid evidence, that it attacks the sedentary more than the active. This means that writers and composers, granted that primary lesion, are prone to it.

Anthony Burgess

Each individual is a cosmos of organs, each organ is a cosmos of cells, each cell is a cosmos of infinitely small ones; and in this complex world, the well-being of the whole depends entirely on the sum of well-being enjoyed by each of the least microscopic particles of organized matter. A whole revolution is thus produced in the philosophy of life.

Peter Kropotkin

Did not Moses go as the Lordís envoy to the wicked people in order to free them from themselves, from their servile mentality, and from their servile condition under the tyrantís yoke? Compared with what are called the works of Moses, what is the deed of even the greatest hero; what are demolishing mountains and filling rivers compared with having darkness fall upon all Egypt? But these were really only Mosesí so-called works, because he was capable of nothing at all and the work was the Lordís. See the difference here. Moses-he is not making decisions and formulating plans while the council of the commonsensical listens attentively because the leader is the wisest-Moses is capable of nothing at all.
