Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Pierre-Simon Laplace
#1. The simplicity of nature is not to be measured by that of our conceptions. Infinitely varied in its effects, nature is simple only in its causes, and its economy consists in producing a great number of phenomena, often very complicated, by means of a small number of general laws. #Quote by Pierre-Simon Laplace
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#2. If for instance the sentiment possessing for the moment the empire of our mind is sorrow, will not the genius sharpen the sorrow and the sorrow purify the genius? Together, will they not be like a cut diamond for which language is only the wax on which they stamp their imprint? I believe that genius, thus awakened, has no need to seek out details, that it scarcely pauses to reflect, that it never thinks of unity: I believe that the details come naturally without search by the poet, that inspiration takes the place of reflection and as for unity, I think there is no unity so perfect as that which results from a heart filled with a single idea ... The nature of genius is related to that of instinct; it's operation is both simple and marvelous. #Quote by Charlotte Bronte
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Pablo Casals
#3. The miracle of Bach has not appeared in any other art. To strip human nature until its divine attributes are made clear, to inform ordinary activities with spiritual fervour, to give wings of eternity to that which is most ephemeral; to make divine things human and human things divine; such is Bach, the greatest and purest moment in music of all time. #Quote by Pablo Casals
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
#4. Imitation is a necessity of human nature. #Quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Dhan Gopal Mukerji
#5. What was most surprising, she was giving him the hardest thing to do first, but by failure at the great one he was learning the easier tasks with infallible power and skill. How different that is from our human way of training people, with the easiest always first. In nature animals cannot afford such long drawn-out step-by-step training. Animal children cannot be segregated in the schoolroom from the sharp experiences of life. They have to be educated in the heart of life itself. The easy and the difficult befall them without any sequence. It is a pity that in civilisation man has made the business of education so sequestered and slow. #Quote by Dhan Gopal Mukerji
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Manjit Kumar
#6. While Einstein was still a patent clerk he had studied the work of the Austrian physicist Ernst Mach, for whom the goal of science was not to discern the nature of reality, but to describe experimental data, the 'facts', as economically as possible. #Quote by Manjit Kumar
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Zadie Smith
#7. He was bookish, she was not; he was theoretical, she political. She called a rose a rose. He called it an accumulation of cultural and biological constructions circulating around the mutually attracting binary poles of nature/artifice. #Quote by Zadie Smith
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Viola Shipman
#8. The Dragonfly Charm

Embrace The Magic of Nature & Life Will Be Filled with Good Fortune #Quote by Viola Shipman
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Mark Twain
#9. If we hadn't our bewitching autumn foliage, we should still have to credit the weather with one feature which compensates for all its bullying vagaries-the ice storm: when a leafless tree is clothed with ice from the bottom to the top – ice that is as bright and clear as crystal; when every bough and twig is strung with ice-beads, frozen dew-drops, and the whole tree sparkles cold and white, like the Shah of Persia's diamond plume. Then the wind waves the branches and the sun comes out and turns all those myriads of beads and drops to prisms that glow and burn and flash with all manner of colored fires, which change and change again with inconceivable rapidity from blue to red, from red to green, and green to gold-the tree becomes a spraying fountain, a very explosion of dazzling jewels; and it stands there the acme, the climax, the supremest possibility in art or nature, of bewildering, intoxicating, intolerable magnificence. One cannot make the words too strong. #Quote by Mark Twain
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Jonathan Haidt
#10. Religion and science, for example, are often thought to be opponents, but as I have shown, the insights of ancient religions and of modern science are both needed to reach a full understanding of human nature and the conditions of human satisfaction. The ancients may have known little about biology, chemistry, and physics, but many were good psychologists. Psychology and religion can benefit by taking each other seriously, or at least by agreeing to learn from each other while overlooking the areas of irreconcilable difference. #Quote by Jonathan Haidt
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Henry Ward Beecher
#11. Badgered, snubbed and scolded on the one hand; petted, flattered and indulged on the other-it is astonishing how many children work their way up to an honest manhood in spite of parents and friends. Human nature has an element of great toughness in it. #Quote by Henry Ward Beecher
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Thomas Hobbes
#12. The Interpretation of the Laws of Nature in a Common-wealth, dependeth not on the books of Moral Philosophy. The Authority of writers, without the Authority of the Commonwealth, maketh not their opinions Law, be they never so true. #Quote by Thomas Hobbes
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Bram Stoker
#13. It is really wonderful how much resilience there is in human nature. Let any obstructing cause, no matter what, be removed in any way, even by death, and we fly back to first principles of hope and enjoyment. #Quote by Bram Stoker
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Elaine Morgan
#14. I believe the deeply rooted semantic confusion between 'man' as a male and 'man' as a species has been fed back into and vitiated a great deal of the speculation that goes on about the origins, development, and nature of the human race. #Quote by Elaine Morgan
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Rupert Spira
#15. The greatest discovery in life is to discover that our essential nature does not share the limits nor the destiny of the body and mind. #Quote by Rupert Spira
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Laurie Lee
#16. Me dad planted that tree,' she said absently, pointing out through the old cracked window.
The great beech filled at least half the sky and shook shadows all over the house.
Its roots clutched the slope like a giant hand, holding the hill in place. Its trunk writhed with power, threw off veils of green dust, rose towering into the air, branched into a thousand shaded alleys, became a city for owls and squirrels. I had thought such trees to be as old as the earth, I never dreamed that a man could make them. Yet it was Granny Trill's dad who had planted this tree, had thrust in the seed with his finger. How old must he have been to leave such a mark? Think of Granny's age, and add his on top, and you were back at the beginning of the world. #Quote by Laurie Lee
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Mercy Otis Warren
#17. I am more and more convinced, of the propensity in human nature to tyranize over their fellow men ... #Quote by Mercy Otis Warren
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Alan Watts
#18. We are all as much extraordinary phenomena of nature as trees, clouds, the patterns in running water, the flickering of fire, the arrangement of the stars and the form of a galaxy. #Quote by Alan Watts
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Vasily Grossman
#19. He walked on down the dark, empty street. Suddenly an idea came to him. Immediately, with his whole being, he knew it was true. He had glimpsed a new and improbable explanation for the atomic phenomena that up until now had seemed so hopelessly inexplicable; abysses had suddenly changed into bridges. What clarity and simplicity! This idea was astonishingly graceful and beautiful. It seemed to have given birth to itself – like a white water-lily appearing out of the calm darkness of a lake. He gasped, reveling in its beauty…
And how strange, he thought suddenly, that this idea should have come to him when his mind was far away from anything to do with science, when the discussions that so excited him were those of free men, when his words and the words of his friends had been determined only by freedom, by bitter freedom. #Quote by Vasily Grossman
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Ade M. Campbell
#20. A door to a long-awaited game-world has opened for those who found its key. This includes Dan Harvester, a guy who lives in a run-down apartment with his cat and runs a gaming channel. He's almost through playing and testing VR games, but is this his one last chance to - really - level-up? What can it promise to him, and its first 'Beta-pioneers'?

'Fountellion' is a nature-world full of artificial life that mimics the laws of 'the Source', our own nature with its force of evolution. It promises to be more than a 'survival experience', for there are six 'Insights' scattered and every player can find their own path to them. How much will Dan be changed?

There is only one way to find out: experience and tune in to his 'avalogs'. For only by completing them together with fragments from its development, can you too discover the vision and legacy of 'Fountellion'. #Quote by Ade M. Campbell
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by James Joyce
#21. Sometimes he caught himself listening to the sound of his own voice. He thought that in her eyes he would ascent to an angelical stature; and, as he attached the fervent nature of his companion more and more closely to him, he heard the strange impersonal voice which he recognised as his own, insisting on the soul's incurable lonliness. We cannot give ourselves, it said: we are our own. #Quote by James Joyce
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Kenneth A. Myers
#22. Until our bodies are made new, like the body Jesus now enjoys, our calling is not to escape fleshly existence, nor to sanctify culture (since it is "common," shared by believer and unbeliever, and cannot be made holy), but to so influence our culture as to make it more consistent with the created nature of man, and to sanctify our own lives, because we are also living in the Spirit, with our minds set on things that are above. #Quote by Kenneth A. Myers
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by John Adams
#23. The frightful engines of ecclesiastical councils, of diabolical malice, and Calvinistical good-nature never failed to terrify me exceedingly whenever I thought of preaching. #Quote by John Adams
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#24. The discovery of the cause is merely intellectual, so obviously it does not free the mind from its dependency. The mere intellectual acceptance of an idea, or the emotional acquiescence in an ideology, cannot free the mind from being dependent on something which will give it stimulation. What frees the mind from dependence is seeing the whole structure and nature of stimulation and dependence and how that dependence makes the mind stupid, dull and inactive. Seeing the totality of it alone frees the mind. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Madame De Stael
#25. In Italy, almost at every step, history and poetry add to the graces of nature, sweeten the memory of the past, and seem to preserve it in eternal youth. #Quote by Madame De Stael
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Jason Epstein
#26. A civilization without retail bookstores is unimaginable. Like shrines and other sacred meeting places, bookstores are essential artifacts of human nature. The feel of a book taken from the shelf and held in the hand is a magical experience, linking writer to reader. #Quote by Jason Epstein
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Eric Onyango Otieno
#27. Some people walk with oceans in their hearts; some just with jars of water. Drink from both. #Quote by Eric Onyango Otieno
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Sri Aurobindo
#28. Man's freedom is relative and it cannot be held solely responsible for the imperfection of his nature. #Quote by Sri Aurobindo
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Egon Friedell
#29. Electricity and magnetism are those forces of nature by which people who know nothing about electricity and magnetism can explain everything. #Quote by Egon Friedell
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Immanuel Kant
#30. A man shouldn't claim to know even himself as he really is by knowing himself through inner sensation - i.e. by introspection. For since he doesn't produce himself (so to speak) or get his concept of himself a priori but only empirically, it is natural that he gets his knowledge of himself through inner sense and consequently only through how his nature appears and how his consciousness is affected. But beyond the character of his own subject, which is made up out of these mere appearances, he necessarily assumes something else underlying it, namely his I as it is in itself. Thus in respect to mere perception and receptivity to sensations he must count himself as belonging to the sensible world; but in respect to whatever pure activity there may be in himself (which reaches his consciousness directly and not by affecting the inner or outer senses) he must count himself as belonging to the intellectual world - though he doesn't know anything more about it. #Quote by Immanuel Kant
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Hyman Rickover
#31. All men are by nature conservative but conservatism in the military profession is a source of danger to the country. One must be ready to change his line sharply and suddenly, with no concern for the prejudices and memories of what was yesterday. To rest upon formula is a slumber that, prolonged, means death. #Quote by Hyman Rickover
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Julene Bair
#32. In the dry places, men begin to dream, wrote Wright Morris, who grew up north of here, in Nebraska. Where rivers run sand, something in man begins to flow. I thought I knew exactly what he meant. The sandy beds of dry creeks unfurl evocatively into the beckoning distance, inscribing their faint script over the land. They entice the exploring spirit. #Quote by Julene Bair
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Christian Boltanski
#33. In science we see progress. In art there is no progress. In art the questions have always been the same. From the beginning of time till now, we are always asking the same questions. There are very few. We are looking for God, we are asking why we die, we are contemplating sex and the beauty of nature. The only thing that changes is that, in each period of questioning, we speak with the language of our time. #Quote by Christian Boltanski
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#34. You can't walk lonely in nature because nature is full of friends! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Jerome K. Jerome
#35. I like idling when I ought not to be idling; not when it is the only thing I have to do. Thatis my pig-headed nature. The time when I like best to stand with my back to the fire, calculating how much I owe, is when my desk is heaped highest with letters that must be answered by the next post. When I like to dawdle longest over my dinner is when I have a heavy evening's work before me. And if, for some urgent reason, I ought to be up particularly early in the morning, it is then, more than at any other time, that I love to lie an extra half-hour in bed.
Ah! how delicious it is to turn over and go to sleep again: "just for
five minutes." Is there any human being, I wonder, besides the hero of
a Sunday-school "tale for boys," who ever gets up willingly? #Quote by Jerome K. Jerome
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Tara Estacaan
#36. The world is abounding with beauty. You are a demonstration of this. #Quote by Tara Estacaan
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Blaise Pascal
#37. For after all what is man in nature? A nothing in relation to infinity, all in relation to nothing, a central point between nothing and all and infinitely far from understanding either. The ends of things and their beginnings are impregnably concealed from him in an impenetrable secret. He is equally incapable of seeing the nothingness out of which he was drawn and the infinite in which he is engulfed. #Quote by Blaise Pascal
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Thomas Hobbes
#38. And because the condition of man . . . is a condition of war of every one against every one, in which case every one is governed by his own reason, and there is nothing he can make use of that may not be a help unto him in preserving his life against his enemies; it followeth that in such a condition every man has a right to every thing, even to one another's body. And therefore, as long as this natural right of every man to every thing endureth, there can be no security to any man, how strong or wise soever he be, of living out the time which nature ordinarily alloweth men to live. And consequently it is a precept, or general rule of reason: that every man ought to endeavour peace, as far as he has hope of obtaining it; and when he cannot obtain it, that he may seek and use all helps and advantages of war. The first branch of which rule containeth the first and fundamental law of nature, which is: to seek peace and follow it. The second, the sum of the right of nature, which is: by all means we can to defend ourselves. #Quote by Thomas Hobbes
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by George Bodenheimer
#39. Elegant in its simplicity and practicality, Lee has distilled many powerful leadership strategies into the lessons many of us learned as children. They are no less relevant to our working lives. At its core, Creating Magic is a collection of stories that reminds us to demonstrate care and respect for every member of the team and to focus our efforts not our ourselves but on the people we lead. #Quote by George Bodenheimer
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Anne Frank
#40. When looked outside, right into the depth of Nature and God, then I was happy, really happy. #Quote by Anne Frank
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Vanessa Winter
#41. Roses …the perfect examples of nature, that even the most beautiful things in life were able to inflict pain. #Quote by Vanessa Winter
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Colleen Boyd
#42. I'll never see Ivy alive again.
But she's still everywhere. In every drop of bubbling swamp water. In every leaf hanging from every tree. In every speck of swamp mud. In every blade of grass. In every gift she left behind for me: two sacks of miscellaneous objects, a grass bracelet, her home, her love, and my life.
A swamp angel named Ivy lived in my backyard. And now she doesn't.
But wherever she is, I know she's watching me.
Just like the angel she's always been. #Quote by Colleen Boyd
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Adoniram Judson
#43. We had never before seen a place where European influence had not contributed to smooth and soften the rough features of uncultivated nature. The prospect of Rangoon, as we approached, was quite disheartening. #Quote by Adoniram Judson
Simplicity Of Nature quotes by Michael Makai
#44. The Warrior Princess Submissive herself may be uncertain of her own submissive nature, so it is entirely understandable that the Dominant seeking to woo her might be somewhat tentative, himself. If the Dominant has even the tiniest iota of doubt about his own dominance or his D/s relationship skills, he is doomed. He will be eaten alive, and not in a good way. #Quote by Michael Makai
