Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Italo Calvino
#1. The only contact we could have with the void was through this little the void had produced as quintessence of its own emptiness; the only image we had of the void was our own poor universe. All the void we would ever know was there, in the relativity of what is, for even the void had been no more than a relative void,a void secretly shot with veins and temptations to be something, given that in a moment of crisis at its own nothingness it had been able to give rise to the universe. #Quote by Italo Calvino
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Philip Yancey
#2. Why the delay? Why does God let evil and pain so flagrantly exist, even thrive, on this planet? ... He holds back for our sakes. Re-creation involves us; we are, in fact, at the center of his plan ... the motive behind all human history, is to develop us, not God. Our very existence announces to the powers in the universe that restoration is under way. Every act of faith by every one of the people of God is like the tolling of a bell, and a faith like Job's reverberates throughout the universe. #Quote by Philip Yancey
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Douglas Adams
#3. Numbers written on restaurant bills within the confines of restaurants do not follow the same mathematical laws as numbers written on any other pieces of paper in any other parts of the Universe. This single fact took the scientific world by storm. #Quote by Douglas Adams
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Henry Miller
#4. When you visit your analyst does he ask you what you read when using the stool? He should, you know. To an analyst it should make a great difference whether you read one kind of literature in the toilet and another elsewhere. It should even make a difference to him whether you read or do not read - in the toilet. Such matters are unfortunately not widely enough discussed. It is assumed that what one does in the toilet is one's own private affair. It is not. The whole universe is concerned. #Quote by Henry Miller
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Neale Donald Walsch
#5. Thought is the first level of creation. Next comes the word. Everything you say is a thought expressed. It is creative and sends forth creative energy into the universe. Words are the second level of creation. Next comes action. #Quote by Neale Donald Walsch
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#6. We also find *physics*, in the widest sense of the word, concerned with the explanation of phenomena in the world; but it lies already in the nature of the explanations themselves that they cannot be sufficient. *Physics* is unable to stand on its own feet, but needs a *metaphysics* on which to support itself, whatever fine airs it may assume towards the latter. For it explains phenomena by something still more unknown than are they, namely by laws of nature resting on forces of nature, one of which is also the vital force. Certainly the whole present condition of all things in the world or in nature must necessarily be capable of explanation from purely physical causes. But such an explanation―supposing one actually succeeded so far as to be able to give it―must always just as necessarily be burdened with two essential imperfections (as it were with two sore points, or like Achilles with the vulnerable heel, or the devil with the cloven foot). On account of these imperfections, everything so explained would still really remain unexplained. The first imperfection is that the *beginning* of the chain of causes and effects that explains everything, in other words, of the connected and continuous changes, can positively *never* be reached, but, just like the limits of the world in space and time, recedes incessantly and *in infinitum*. The second imperfection is that all the efficient causes from which everything is explained always rest on something wholly inexplicable, that is #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Alfred Kahn
#7. Whenever competition is feasible it is, for all its imperfections, superior to regulation as a means of serving the public interest. #Quote by Alfred Kahn
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#8. Trillions of years into the future, when all stars are gone ... all parts of the cosmos will cool to the same temperature as the ever-cooling background. At that time, space travel will no longer provide refuge because even Hell will have frozen over. We may then declare that the universe has died-not with a bang, but with a whimper. #Quote by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Deepak Chopra
#9. As I let go of the need to arrange my life, the universe brings abundant good to me. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Patrick Zac
#10. People are made from the stuff of the universe, and the universe is very dark; so everyone has a bit of that darkness lurking somewhere inside them. #Quote by Patrick Zac
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Bryant McGill
#11. There is something divine, mystical, magical and unexplainable in the universe that is listening and responding to each of us. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Terence McKenna
#12. The psychedelic universe, whatever it is, is the major datum of experience. It's larger than this planet. Nobody knows how large it is. The further in you go the bigger it gets. We don't know what to make of something like that. It's the reverse of our expectations. #Quote by Terence McKenna
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by James Jackson Jarves
#13. Art is universal. It unites mankind in common brotherhood. As a missionary of civilization, its message is both to heart and mind. Distinctions of tongue or boundary lines disappear before the power of truths, which, like the rainbow, charm by the beauty of variegated hues, or, combined with light, illuminate the universe. Moreover, art is the connecting link in the chain of great minds. Through its language, thought appeals to thought, and sympathy echoes feeling. #Quote by James Jackson Jarves
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
#14. Frederick the Great was accustomed to say: "The older one gets the more convinced one becomes that his Majesty King Chance does three-quarters of the business of this miserable universe." Sorel #Quote by Niccolo Machiavelli
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Rumi
#15. Sadness to me is the happiest time, When a shining city rises from the ruins of my drunken mind. Those times when I'm silent and still as the earth, The thunder of my roar is heard across the universe. #Quote by Rumi
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Frederick Lenz
#16. What is incarnation? Incarnation is self-reflection. The universe that we are in is constructed, is a reflection of ourselves. We picked the dimension according to our self-reflection. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Graham Swift
#17. And as for the Ellison Fellow's feelings towards Katherine Potter
to be honest, they involve a good deal of confusion. He reacts before Katherine Potter, in fact, as he has reacted before all new, strange (attractive) women who happen, since a certain event, to have crossed his path. He does not know how to deal with them. He is filled with dismay, a giddy sense of arbitrariness, an apprehension that the universe holds nothing sacred; all of which is only to be stilled by the imperative of loyal resistance.
He is not immune to the prickle of passing lust. But he deals defensively with it. He reacts either with disdainful dismissal (Not your type, definitely not your type) or with a rampant if covert seizure of lecherousness (Christ, what tits! What legs! What an arse!), which serves the same forestalling function by reducing its object to meat and its subject (he is past fifty, after all) to a pother of shame. #Quote by Graham Swift
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Giordano Bruno
#18. Eighthly, none of our sense-perceptions is opposed to the acceptance of infinity, since we cannot deny infinity merely because we do not sensibly perceive it; but since sense in itself is included in infinity, and since reason doth confirm infinity, therefore needs must that we posit infinity. Moreover, if we consider well, sense doth present to us an infinite universe. For we perceive an endless series of objects, each one contained by another, nor do we ever perceive either with our external or our internal sense, an object which is not contained by another or similar object.

Lastly before our eyes one thing is seen to bound another; air is as a well between the hills, and mountains between tracts of air, land bounds the sea and again sea bounds all lands; yet in truth there is nothing outside to limit the universe ... so far on every side spreads out huge room for things, free from limit in all directions everywhere. [6]

From the testimony of our sight then we should rather infer the infinite, since there is no object which doth not terminate in another, nor can we experience aught which terminateth in itself. #Quote by Giordano Bruno
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Jon Kabat-Zinn
#19. You don't need the iPhone: you have the most exquisite apparatus in the known universe sitting right in your head - the most complex organization of matter in the entire universe. And here are we, feeling a little depressed, feeling like we're not getting where we need to be, when really you might be exactly where you need to be. #Quote by Jon Kabat-Zinn
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by SRI SRI PUBLICATIONS
#20. The universe is one organism. The world is one organism, one living Being and each mind is just a part of that. This is the highest knowledge and all knowledge has to lead to this universal truth. #Quote by SRI SRI PUBLICATIONS
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Michelle Obama
#21. My first job in all honesty is going to continue to be mom-in-chief. Making sure that in this transition, which will be even more of a transition for the girls ... that they are settled and that they know they will continue to be the center of our universe. #Quote by Michelle Obama
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Frederick Lenz
#22. You cannot be born and you cannot die. You will exist in a universe that goes on forever. That is the ultimate horror from the Zen point of view. You could be unhappy forever. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by David W. Orr
#23. Journey of the Universe is eloquent, accessible, and powerful, and conveys a sense of wonder ranging from the cosmos to the microcosm
in itself a considerable achievement. This is one of the most compelling and inspiring works I've read in a long time. #Quote by David W. Orr
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Georges Bataille
#24. Human life is exhausted from serving as the head of, or the reason for, the universe. To the extent that it becomes this head and this reason, to the extent that it becomes necessary to the universe, it accepts servitude. If it is not free, existence becomes empty or neutral, and if it is free, it is in play. The Earth, as long as it only gave rise to cataclysms, trees, and birds, was a free universe; the fascination of freedom was tarnished when the Earth produced a being who demanded necessity as law above the universe. Man however has remained free not to respond to any necessity; he is free to resemble everything that is not himself in the universe. He can set aside the thought that it is he or God who keeps the rest of things from being absurd. #Quote by Georges Bataille
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Jesse J. Jacoby
#25. When I go running through the forest on hot days, if I stop for any reason, in that very moment mosquitoes will attack me. If I keep moving, they do not bother me. This motivates me to continue without resting. Imagine how wonderful it would be if every time we stopped being active in life the Universe would send us a signal that would push us to carry on. Guess what, it does. When the life we lead does not align with our passions, depression bites at us so we will change our ways. If we eat poorly and live sedentary, we are often afflicted with a serious health condition. We do not get sick, or become ill so that we can blame God, curse our genetics, or give up on life. These conditions arise to motivate us so we will correct our errors and clean up our mistakes. The reason why we are confronted with failures on our mission to obtain happiness is not so we can dwell in misery, but rather for us to reshape our desires and go after what we are destined to succeed with. The Universe is working in our favor, not against us. It is okay to rest at times, but if we do not want to get bit by misfortunes, then we must remain active in our pursuit of a better life. #Quote by Jesse J. Jacoby
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Jeffrey Fry
#26. The mind is the master of the soul, and the soul is the master of your universe. Learn to master your mind. #Quote by Jeffrey Fry
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Debasish Mridha
#27. Music is the language of the universe, which everyone, including all animals, can understand. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by John Holland
#28. The human body is sustained by the same prana that nourishes the universe. The body (your equipment) has the ability to control and use this special energy through the use of "pranayama". Don't let true word scare you - it just means to control, channel, and direct the flow of prana through the use of breath. #Quote by John Holland
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Gabriel Iqbal
#29. Therefore, all the scientific data suggests that what we perceive has an effect on matter as we view it. We are co-creating this universe as participators. So if we are looking at the smallest sub-atomic particles and/or the edge of the universe we bring about the act of creation just by observing hence we will never find the smallest subatomic particles or the edge of the universe as we are co-creating reality. Hence the dilemma, if there is an edge of the universe, what is beyond the edge or if we have found the smallest sub-atomic particle what is it further made up of. I can sum up my research by stating that the very act of observation creates reality. #Quote by Gabriel Iqbal
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Flannery O'Connor
#30. To the person who believes this- as the western world did up until a few centuries ago- this physical, sensible world is good because it proceeds from a divine source. The artist usually knows this by instinct; his senses, which are used to penetrating the concrete, tell him so. When Conrad said that his aim as an artist was to render the highest possible justice to the visible universe, he was speaking with the novelist's surest instinct. The artist penetrates the concrete world in order to find at its depths the image of its source, the image of ultimate reality. This in no way hinders his perception of evil but rather sharpens it, for only when the natural world is seen as good does evil become intelligible as a destructive force and a necessary result of our freedom. #Quote by Flannery O'Connor
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Cassandra Clare
#31. She supposed they were imperfections, those marks, but they didn't feel that way to her; they were a history, cut into his body: the map of a life of endless war. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Sameh Elsayed
#32. The universe is a life giving force that is part of us. It flows in harmony through us guiding our every step. It maintain the harmony and flow of life. It gives us the passion and the knowledge we need to live and be inspired by. Yet in return, it is inspired by the human spirit #Quote by Sameh Elsayed
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Debasish Mridha
#33. Any act of kindness and any act nonjudgmental love has immeasurable power, which can change the universe. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Chris Hadfield
#34. When I closed my eyes, for instance, I occasionally saw very faint bursts of light: cosmic rays - high-energy particles from some distant sun racing across the universe and striking my optic nerve like a personal lightning bolt. The flashes were right at the edge of perception, almost as if teasing me to detect them. #Quote by Chris Hadfield
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Albert Camus
#35. Patrice proceeded from the face of the world to the grave and smiling faces of the young women. Sometimes he was amazed by this universe they had created around him. Friendship and trust, sun and white houses, scarcely heeded nuances, here felicities were born intact, and he could measure their precise nuance. The House above the World, the said among themselves, was not a house of pleasure, it was a house of happiness. Patrice knew it was true when night fell and they all accepted, with the last breeze on their faces, the human and dangerous temptation to be utterly unique. #Quote by Albert Camus
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Isabel Allende
#36. I began to wonder whether anything truly existed, whether reality wasn't an unformed and gelatinous substance only half-captured by my senses ... If that were true, each of us was living in absolute isolation. The thought terrified me. I was consoled by the idea that I could take that gelatin and mold it to create anything I wanted ... At times I felt that the universe fabricated from the power of the imagination had stronger and more lasting contours than the blurred realm of the flesh-and-blood creatures around me. #Quote by Isabel Allende
Imperfection Of The Universe quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#37. as though the Universe itself were under an obligation to bother itself about them, for it never gets tired of wrapping up God Himself in the petty misery in which its troubles are involved. And #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
