Universal quotes by Francis Bacon
#1. Those experiments be not only esteemed which have an immediate and present use, but those principally which are of most universal consequence for invention of other experiments, and those which give more light to the invention of causes; for the invention of the mariner's needle, which giveth the direction, is of no less benefit for navigation than the invention of the sails, which give the motion. #Quote by Francis Bacon
Universal quotes by Pope John XXIII
#2. The Rosary is a magnificent and universal prayer for the needs of the Church, the nations and the entire world. #Quote by Pope John XXIII
Universal quotes by Jennifer Dunn
#3. As we have always seen here in the U.S. the universal truth about elections is that people vote their pocketbook. #Quote by Jennifer Dunn
Universal quotes by Henry Rollins
#4. Black Sabbath - one of the world's universal language of music. I felt proud, for three or four minutes of my life combining my voice with Tony Iommi's guitar sound. #Quote by Henry Rollins
Universal quotes by Pirkei Avot
#5. Compassion is the feeling of sympathy which the pain of one being awakens in another; and the higher and more human the beings are, the more keenly attuned they are to re-echo the note of suffering, which, like a voice from heaven, penetrates the heart, bringing all creatures a proof of their kinship in the universal God. And as for man, whose function it is to show respect and love for God's universe and all its creatures, his heart has been created so tender that it feels with the whole organic world ... mourning even for fading flowers; so that, if nothing else, the very nature of his heart must teach him that he is required above everything to fe the brother of all beings, and to recognize the claim of all beings to his love and his beneficence.
Horeb, Chapter 17, Verse 125 #Quote by Pirkei Avot
Universal quotes by Tahereh Mafi
#6. Selfish needs, wants, and desires needed to be obliterated. Greed, overindulgence, and gluttony had to be expunged from human behavior. The solution was in self-control, in minimalism, in sparse living conditions; one simple and a brand-new dictionary filled with words everyone would understand. #Quote by Tahereh Mafi
Universal quotes by Truth Devour
#7. Life is filled with expressions of emotion - tap into the universal energy and get what you need to feed you're soul. #Quote by Truth Devour
Universal quotes by Dan Groat
#8. Giants bleed like everybody else. #Quote by Dan Groat
Universal quotes by James Madison
#9. A universal peace, it is to be feared, is in the catalogue of events, which will never exist but in the imaginations of visionary philosophers, or in the breasts of benevolent enthusiasts. #Quote by James Madison
Universal quotes by Beth Houston
#10. Deists, not religious authoritarians, codified the clear separation of church from state in addition to the division of powers within the state. Deists, not the Continental philosophers, established our democratic republic upon uniquely radical interpretations of constitutional and procedural stability, representation, accountability, and transparency. Deists, not autocrats, formed a more perfect Union that preserved equally for each individual the universal civil liberties inscribed in the Bill of Rights. It was Deists who stood up for Everyman by instituting true equality and freedom for all. #Quote by Beth Houston
Universal quotes by Franco Bifo Berardi
#11. When dealing with a depression the problem is not to bring the depressed person back to his/her normality, to reintegrate behavior in the universal standards of normal social language. The goal is to change the focus of his/her depressive attention, to re-focalize, to deterritorialize the mind and the flow of expression. Depression is based on the stiffening of existential refrain, on the obsessive repetition of the stiffened refrain. The depressed person is unable to go out, to leave the repetitive refrain and s/he goes and goes again in the labyrinth. The goal of the schizoanalyst is to give him/her the possibility to see other landscapes, and to change the focus, to open some new ways of imagination. #Quote by Franco Bifo Berardi
Universal quotes by Galileo Galilei
#12. In time you may discover everything that can be discovered, and still your progress will only be progress away from humanity. The distance between you and them can one day become so great that your joyous cry over some new gain could be answered by an universal shriek of horror. #Quote by Galileo Galilei
Universal quotes by Andrea Speed
#13. There's bigots in every race, creed, and orientation. Idiocy is universal. #Quote by Andrea Speed
Universal quotes by J.M. Coetzee
#14. What would yield the greater benefit to mankind: if I spent the afternoon taking stock in my dispensary, or if I went to the beach and took off my clothes and lay in my underpants absorbing the benign spring sun, watching the children frolic in the water, later buying an ice-cream from the kiosk on the parking lot, if the kiosk is still there? What did Noël ultimately achieve labouring at his desk to balance the bodies out against the bodies in? Would he not be better off taking a nap? Maybe the universal sum of happiness would be increased if we declared this afternoon a holiday and went down to the beach, commandant, doctor, chaplain, PT instructors, guards, dog-handlers all together with the six hard cases from the detention block, leaving behind the concussion case to look after things. Perhaps we might meet some girls. For what reason were we waging the war, after all, but to augment the sum of happiness in the universe? Or was I misremembering, was that another war I was thinking of? #Quote by J.M. Coetzee
Universal quotes by Susan C. Young
#15. Love is the universal language that transcends countries, borders, barriers, and differences. #Quote by Susan C. Young
Universal quotes by James Gleick
#16. The Internet has taken shape with startlingly little planning? The most universal and indispensable network on the planet somehow burgeoned without so muchasa boardofdirectors, never minda mergers-and- acquisitions department. There is a paradoxical lesson here for strategists. In economic terms, the great corporations are acting like socialist planners, while old- fashioned free-market capitalism blossoms at their feet. #Quote by James Gleick
Universal quotes by Dalai Lama
#17. Each individual has a universal responsibility to shape institutions to serve human needs. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Universal quotes by Carre Otis
#18. But I would assert that despite the wide variety of yoga options and individual preferences, there is one universal element: the union of consciousness and movement, breath and awareness. #Quote by Carre Otis
Universal quotes by David Harvey
#19. The value-form of the product of labour is the most abstract, but also the most universal form of the bourgeois mode of production; by that fact it stamps the bourgeois mode of production as a particular kind of social production of a historical and transitory character. If then we make the mistake of treating it as the eternal natural form of social production, we necessarily overlook the specificity of the value-form, and consequently of the commodity-form together with its further developments, the money form, the capital form, etc. (174, #Quote by David Harvey
Universal quotes by Jack Weatherford
#20. Whether in their policy of religious tolerance, devising a universal alphabet, maintaining relay stations, playing games, or printing almanacs, money, or astronomy charts, the rulers of the Mongol Empire displayed a persistent universalism. #Quote by Jack Weatherford
Universal quotes by Henry Hazlitt
#21. The dilemma is this. In the modern world knowledge has been growing so fast and so enormously, in almost every field, that the probabilities are immensely against anybody, no matter how innately clever, being able to make a contribution in any one field unless he devotes all his time to it for years. If he tries to be the Rounded Universal Man, like Leonardo da Vinci, or to take all knowledge for his province, like Francis Bacon, he is most likely to become a mere dilettante and dabbler. But if he becomes too specialized, he is apt to become narrow and lopsided, ignorant on every subject but his own, and perhaps dull and sterile even on that because he lacks perspective and vision and has missed the cross-fertilization of ideas that can come from knowing something of other subjects. #Quote by Henry Hazlitt
Universal quotes by Katy Tackes
#22. ...once you express your will, the Universe will conspire with each and every atom to help you reach your destiny. #Quote by Katy Tackes
Universal quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#23. The axioms of physics translate the laws of ethics. Thus, "the whole is greater than its part;" "reaction is equal to action;" "the smallest weight may be made to lift the greatest, the difference of weight being compensated by time;" and many the like propositions, which have an ethical as well as physical sense. These propositions have a much more extensive and universal sense when applied to human life, than when confined to technical use. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Universal quotes by Charles-Francois Dupuis
#24. If there is one fable, which would seem entitled to escape the analysis, which we have undertaken of religious poems and sacred legends, by the laws of physical and astronomical science, it is doubtless that of Christ, or the legend, which under that name is really dedicated to the worship of the Sun. The hatred, which the sectarians of that religion, - jealous to make their form of worship dominant over all others, - have shown against those, who worshipped Nature, the Sun, the Moon and the Stars, against the Roman Deities, whose temples and altars they have upset, - would suscitate the idea, that their worship did not form a part of that otherwise universal religion. #Quote by Charles-Francois Dupuis
Universal quotes by Dalai Lama
#25. The essence of any religion is good heart. Sometimes I call love and compassion a universal religion. This is my religion. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Universal quotes by May Sarton
#26. I write poems, have always written them, to transcend the painfully personal and reach the universal. #Quote by May Sarton
Universal quotes by Franz Wright
#27. Poetry endures when it possesses passionate and primally sincere clarity in the service of articulating universal human concerns. #Quote by Franz Wright
Universal quotes by Aesop
#28. The beasts of the field and forest had a Lion as their king. He was neither wrathful, cruel, nor tyrannical, but just and gentle as a king could be. During his reign he made a royal proclamation for a general assembly of all the birds and beasts, and drew up conditions for a universal league, in which the Wolf and the Lamb, the Panther and the Kid, the Tiger and the Stag, the Dog and the Hare, should live together in perfect peace and amity. The Hare said, "Oh, how I have longed to see this day, in which the weak shall take their place with impunity by the side of the strong." And after the Hare said this, he ran for his life. #Quote by Aesop
Universal quotes by Dan Brown
#29. But faith by its very definition, requires placing your trust in something that unseeable and indefinable, accepting something of which there exists no empirical evidence. And so, understandably, we all end up placing our faith in different things because if there is no universal truth. - Edmond Kirsch #Quote by Dan Brown
Universal quotes by Doc Sanborn
#30. It seems to be a universal generality that while the old want to reminisce, the young are too busy living to bother. #Quote by Doc Sanborn
Universal quotes by Marquis De Sade
#31. Those laws, being forged for universal application, are in perpetual conflict with personal interest, just as personal interest is always in contradiction with the general interest. Good for society, our laws are very bad for the individuals whereof it is composed; for, if they one time protect the individual, they hinder, trouble, fetter him for three quarters of his life. #Quote by Marquis De Sade
Universal quotes by Susan Powter
#32. There's a couple of universal principles in life. One is, don't ever open a restaurant. One out of every two fails. #Quote by Susan Powter
Universal quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#33. Universal abundance has been given to us by God to prosper on earth. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Universal quotes by Shaman Elizabeth Herrera
#34. Guilt - the universal punishment. For what? What have you done? Illusions of deeds gone wrong, misspoken words, actions that seemed to kill or harm others, all are dreams of injuries to ourselves and others, and yet they are only dreams. The spirit realm, where all the loved ones wait, is a much more accurate portrayal of yourself. Yet even this is incomplete. You are ultimately only love, extending itself for all of eternity. #Quote by Shaman Elizabeth Herrera
Universal quotes by Debasish Mridha
#35. Love is a divine and universal attraction, which hold the universe together and fills it with beauty, life, and happiness forever. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Universal quotes by Niall Ferguson
#36. Historians are not scientists. They cannot (and should not even trying to) establish universal laws of social or political "physics" with reliable predictive powers. Why? Because there is no possibility of repeating the single, multi-millennium experiment that constant to the past. The sample size of human history is one. #Quote by Niall Ferguson
Universal quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#37. Life had stepped into the place of theory and something quite different would work itself out in his mind. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Universal quotes by Lewis Thomas
#38. We tend to think of our selves as the only wholly unique creations in nature, but it is not so. Uniqueness is so commonplace a property of living things that there is really nothing at all unique about it. A phenomenon can't be unique and universal at the same time. #Quote by Lewis Thomas
Universal quotes by J.T. Geissinger
#39. One of the first shrinks I went to after Cass died told me that the brain has a hardwired need to find correlations, to make sense of nonsensical data by making connections between unrelated things. Humans have evolved a universal tendency to seek patterns in random information, hence the existence of fortune-tellers and dream interpreters and people who see the face of Jesus in a piece of toast. But the cold, hard truth is that there are no connections between anything. Life - all of existence - is totally random. Your lucky lottery numbers aren't really lucky, because there's no such thing as luck. The black cat that crosses your path isn't a bad omen, it's just a cat out for a walk. An eclipse doesn't mean that the gods are angry, just as a bus narrowly missing you as you cross the street doesn't mean there's a guardian angel looking out for you. There are no gods. There are no angels. Superstitions aren't real, and no amount of wishing, praying, or rationalizing can change the fact that life is just one long sequence of random events that ultimately have no meaning. I really hated that shrink. #Quote by J.T. Geissinger
Universal quotes by Wallace D. Wattles
#40. Hurry and fear will instantly cut your connect with the universal mind. #Quote by Wallace D. Wattles
Universal quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#41. The exercise of imagination is dangerous to those who profit from the way things are because it has the power to show that the way things are is not permanent, not universal, not necessary. Having that real though limited power to put established institutions into question, imaginative literature has also the responsibility of power. The storyteller is the truthteller. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Universal quotes by Timothy C.W. Blanning
#42. But the relationship between the between the two cultural paradigms has always been a dialectical, not cyclical. The romantics were not repeating their ancestors. On the contrary, they brought about a cultural revolution comparable in its radicalism and effects with the roughly contemporary American, French, and Industrial Revolutions.
By destroying natural law and by reorienting concern from the work to the artist they tore up the old regime's aesthetic rule book just as thoroughly as any Jacobin [a 18th century political French club] tore down social institutions. In the words of Ernst Troeltsch: "Romanticism too is a revolution, a thorough and genuine revolution: a revolution against the respectability of the bourgeois temper and against a universal equalitarian ethic: a revolution, above all, against the whole of the mathematico-mechanical spirit of science in western Europe, against a conception of Natural Law which sought to blend utility with morality, against the bare abstraction of a universal and equal Humanity." [Unquote Troeltsch]
As will be argued in the subsequent chapters, it was Hegel who captured the essence of this revolution in his pithy definition of romanticism as "absolute inwardness" [absloute Innerlichkeit - in German - אינערליכקייט]. It will also be argued that its prophet was Jean-Jacques Rousseau: if not the most consistent, then certainly the most influential of all the eighteenth-century thinkers.
Writing in 1907, Lytton Strachey ca #Quote by Timothy C.W. Blanning
Universal quotes by Letitia Elizabeth Landon
#43. There can be neither politically nor morally a good which is not universal ... we cannot reform for a time or for a class, but for all and for the whole, and our very interests will draw us together in one wide bond of sympathy. #Quote by Letitia Elizabeth Landon
Universal quotes by Raheel Farooq
#44. Time is conscience of the universe. #Quote by Raheel Farooq
Universal quotes by Edward L. Bernays
#45. The history of the industrial revolution
shows how that power passed from the king and the
aristocracy to the bourgeoisie. Universal suffrage
and universal schooling reinforced this tendency, and
at last even the bourgeoisie stood in fear of the com-
mon people. For the masses promised to become
king. #Quote by Edward L. Bernays
Universal quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#46. It's time that I stop referring to myself, thinking about myself, planning for myself, according to the gridlines and the timelines and the guidelines of people. I will expand in this universe, I will not stay on the lines nor within the lines written by this world. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Universal quotes by Alan Jacobs
#47. So let me conclude this chapter with a celebration of splitting--of the disciplined, principled preference for rejecting categories whenever we discern them at work. Again, this is not to say that we can live without them, but rather that we need to cultivate skepticism as a first response. The group solidarity matters to almost all of us in one way or another--it is the stuff of which both inner rings and genuine membership are made--on some fundamental level, as Dorothy Sayers once wrote, "What is repugnant to every human being is to be reckoned always as a member of a class and not as an individual person." The key word there is always: to be "reckoned...as a member of a class" Is sometimes useful, often necessary, but intolerably offensive as a universal practice. #Quote by Alan Jacobs
Universal quotes by Morten Tyldum
#48. Making a movie is universal. Directing a movie is universal; it's a universal language. #Quote by Morten Tyldum
Universal quotes by Alan Garner
#49. From my differing awareness, I sense something you may not yet. Especially among artists...resistance is growing. Conciousness is on the move. Something is at work in the world: a general recognition of the crisis of the spirit, of the banal and shoddy, in human affairs. It is universal and it must be met. Recently, an Australian Aboriginal shaman warned me: 'The Great Serpent has woken. Jarapiri stirs. The earth shakes. And the warriors are gathering. #Quote by Alan Garner
Universal quotes by Garth Stein
#50. But there is a point at which he is the instrument and someone or something is playing him. Something larger. Something outside of all of us. Call it the Universal Mind, if you like. But when he feels it, he knows that the people listening feel it as well. They are all tapping into the same thing. They all understand. #Quote by Garth Stein
Universal quotes by Edward Bellamy
#51. As for the comparatively small class of violent crimes against persons, unconnected with any idea of gain, they were almost wholly confined, even in your day, to the ignorant and bestial; and in these days, when education and good manners are not the monopoly of a few, but universal, such atrocities are scarcely ever heard of. #Quote by Edward Bellamy
Universal quotes by Rebecca Goldstein
#52. It has been claimed that Plato was an egalitarian; it has been claimed that he was a totalitarian. It has been claimed that he was the utopian, proposing a universal blueprint for the ideal state; it has been claimed that he was an anti-utopian, demonstrating that all political idealism is folly. It has been claimed that he was a populist, concerned with the best interests of all citizens; it has been claimed he was an elitist with disturbing eugenic tendencies. It has been claimed he was a romantic; it has been claimed that he was a prick. It has been claimed that he was a theorizer, with sweeping metaphysical doctrines; it has been claimed that he was the anti-theorizing skeptic, always intent on unsettling convictions. It has been claimed that he was full of humor and play; it has been claimed that he was as solemn as a sermon limining the torments of the damned. It has been claimed he loved his fellow man; it has been claimed he loves his fellow man. It has been claimed he was a philosopher who used his artistic gifts in the service of philosophy; it has been claimed he was an artist who used philosophy in the service of his art. #Quote by Rebecca Goldstein
Universal quotes by Voltaire
#53. Shall I not render a service to men in speaking to them only of morality? This morality is so pure, so holy, so universal, so clear, so ancient, that it seems to come from God himself, like the light which we regard as the first of his works. Has he not given men self-love to secure their preservation; benevolence, beneficence, and virtue to control their self-love; the natural need to form a society; pleasure to enjoy, pain to warn us to enjoy in moderation, passions to spur us to great deeds, and wisdom to curb our passions? #Quote by Voltaire
Universal quotes by Andrew Murray
#54. Our private and public prayer are our chief expression of our relation to God: it is in them chiefly that our waiting upon God must be exercised. If our waiting begin by quieting the activities of nature, and being still before God; if it bows and seeks to see God in His universal and almighty operation, alone able and always ready to work all good; if it yields itself to Him in the assurance that He is working and will work in us; if it maintains the place of humility and stillness, and surrenders until God's Spirit has quickened the faith that He will perfect His work: it will indeed become the strength and the joy of the soul. Life will become one deep blessed cry: "I have waited for Thy salvation, O Lord." "My soul, wait thou only upon God #Quote by Andrew Murray
Universal quotes by Alison Lurie
#55. Attempts to limit female mobility by hampering locomotion are ancient and almost universal. The foot-binding of upper-class Chinese girls and the Nigerian custom of loading women's legs with pounds of heavy brass wire are extreme examples, but all over the world similar stratagems have been employed to make sure that once you have caught a woman she cannot run away, and even if she stays around she cannot keep up with you ... Literally as well as figuratively modern women's shoes are what keeps Samantha from running as fast as Sammy. #Quote by Alison Lurie
Universal quotes by Edward Gibbon
#56. According to the maxims of universal toleration, the Romans protected a superstition which they despised. #Quote by Edward Gibbon
Universal quotes by P.D. James
#57. On the whole I'm glad; you can't mourn for unborn grandchildren when there never was a hope of them. This planet is doomed anyway. Eventually the sun will explode or cool and one small insignificant particle of the universe will disappear with only a tremble. If man is doomed to perish, then universal infertility is as painless a way as any. And there are, after all, personal compensations. For the last sixty years we have sycophantically pandered to the most ignorant, the most criminal and the most selfish section of society. Now, for the rest of our lives, we're going to be spared the intrusive barbarism of the young, their noise, their pounding, repetitive, computer-produced so-called music, their violence, their egotism disguised as idealism. My God, we might even succeed in getting rid of Christmas, that annual celebration of parental guilt and juvenile greed. I intend that my life shall be comfortable, and, when it no longer is, then I shall wash down my final pill with a bottle of claret. #Quote by P.D. James
Universal quotes by Halford Mackinder
#58. For the first time we can perceive something of the real proportion of features and events on the stage of the whole world, and may seek a formula which shall express certain aspects, at any rate, of geographical causation in universal history. #Quote by Halford Mackinder
Universal quotes by Ruth St. Denis
#59. As we rise higher in the understanding of ourselves, the national and racial dissonances will be forgotten in the universal rhythms of Truth and Love. #Quote by Ruth St. Denis
Universal quotes by Alain De Botton
#60. Solitary though we may have become, we haven't of course given up all hope of forming relationships. In the lonely canyons of the modern city, there is no more honoured emotion than love. However, this is not the love of which religions speak, not the expansive, universal brotherhood of mankind; it is a more jealous, restricted and ultimately meaner variety. It is a romantic love which sends us on a maniacal quest for a single person with whom we hope to achieve a life-long and complete communion, one person in particular who will spare us any need for people in general. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Universal quotes by Kodi Smit-McPhee
#61. In L.A., I live right across from Universal Studios. #Quote by Kodi Smit-McPhee
Universal quotes by Abbe Pierre
#62. When they are assailed by despair, young people should let universal concerns into their lives. #Quote by Abbe Pierre
Universal quotes by Don DeLillo
#63. How does a successful television commercial affect the viewer?"
"It makes him want to change the way he lives."
"In what way?" I said.
"It moves him from first person consciousness to third person. In this country there is a universal third person, the man we all want to be. Advertising has discovered this man. It uses him to express the possibilities open to the consumer. To consume in America is not to buy; it is to dream. Advertising is the suggestion that the dream of entering the third person singular might possibly be fulfilled. #Quote by Don DeLillo
Universal quotes by Marie Von Ebner-Eschenbach
#64. So soon as a fashion is universal, it is out of date. #Quote by Marie Von Ebner-Eschenbach
Universal quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#65. True patriotism springs from a belief in the dignity of the individual, freedom and equality not only for Americans but for all people on earth, universal brotherhood and good will, and a constant and earnest striving toward the principles and ideals on which this country was founded. #Quote by Eleanor Roosevelt
Universal quotes by Olaf Stapledon
#66. Myriads of individuals, each one unique, live out their lives in rapt intercourse with one another, contribute their heart's pulses to the universal music, and presently vanish, giving place to others. All this age-long sequence of private living, which is the actual tissue of humanity's flesh, I cannot describe. I can only trace, as it were, the disembodied form of its growth. #Quote by Olaf Stapledon
Universal quotes by Michio Kaku
#67. Instead of being overwhelmed by the universe, I think that perhaps one of the deepest experiences a scientist can have, almost approaching a religious awakening, is to realize that we are children of the stars, and that our minds are capable of understanding the universal laws that they obey. The atoms within our bodies were forged on the anvil of nucleo-synthesis within an exploding star aeons before the birth of the solar system. Our atoms are older than the mountains. We are literally made of star dust. Now these atoms, in turn, have coalesced into intelligent beings capable of understanding the universal laws governing that event. #Quote by Michio Kaku
Universal quotes by Peter Piot
#68. The era of implementation has started. The world is now committed to universal treatment. #Quote by Peter Piot
Universal quotes by John McAfee
#69. There will be an electronic currency, and it will be universal, and we must accept that fact. #Quote by John McAfee
Universal quotes by Penny Jordan
#70. The appeal of romance is love. And that's universal. #Quote by Penny Jordan
Universal quotes by Jeffrey D. Sachs
#71. it is the provision of public services, notably the universal access to affordable day care, even more than income support to families, that is key to the elimination of poverty among families with children. Sweden's public services, of uniformly high quality, ensure a decent start for all children. Sweden #Quote by Jeffrey D. Sachs
Universal quotes by Bruce Lee
#72. The stillness in stillness is not the real stillness; only when there is stillness in movement does the universal rhythm manifest. #Quote by Bruce Lee
Universal quotes by Mikhail Kalinin
#73. The national question is purely a peasant question ... the best way to eliminate nationality is a massive factory with thousands of workers ... , which like a millstone grinds up all nationalities and forges a new nationality. This nationality is the universal proletariat. #Quote by Mikhail Kalinin
Universal quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#74. Would to God I were rid of this nether millstone within me, this hateful body of death. Blessed be the name of the Lord, the disease is not incurable, the Saviour's precious blood is the universal solvent, and me, even me, it will effectually soften, till my heart melts as wax before the fire. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Universal quotes by Sri Chinmoy
#75. It is music that, being the universal language, has no need to learn any particular language of the world. #Quote by Sri Chinmoy
Universal quotes by Barbara Marx Hubbard
#76. By understanding evolution as the expression of universal intelligence, now becoming conscious of itself within us, and as us, we overcome the dichotomy between current evolutionists who see no design in evolution, and creationists who often propose and anthropomorphic God as creator. #Quote by Barbara Marx Hubbard
Universal quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#77. All men, in the abstract, are just and good; what hinders them, in the particular, is, the momentary predominance of the finite and individual over the general truth. The condition of our incarnation in a private self, seems to be, a perpetual tendency to prefer the private law, to obey the private impulse, to the exclusion of the law of the universal being. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Universal quotes by Bill Bryson
#78. In 1986, The Economist assembled a list of English terms that had become more or less universal. They were: airport, passport, hotel, telephone, bar, soda, cigarette, sport, golf, tennis, stop, O.K., weekend, jeans, know-how, sex appeal, and no problem. #Quote by Bill Bryson
Universal quotes by Chris DiSano Davenport
#79. If you say something over and over and over again you may just start to believe it. If you truly do believe it, you can be sure you will receive it."
Selkie Anne, The Little People Journey into the Mystic Sea #Quote by Chris DiSano Davenport
Universal quotes by Timothy Noah
#80. If we were to compile a list of the ways in which the United States has made both itself and the wider world a better place, then at or very near the top would be its commitment to universal education. #Quote by Timothy Noah
Universal quotes by Gina L. Maxwell
#81. Kyle held out his hand and Reid shook it like a good sport, but he made sure to add a little extra pressure and a meaningful stare in the universal male Don't-f**k-with-this-chick-or-I'll-eat-your-heart-for-breakfast-with-my-Wheaties look. #Quote by Gina L. Maxwell
Universal quotes by Walter Russell
#82. I have absolute faith that anything can come to one who trusts to the unlimited help of the Universal Intelligence that is within, so long as one works within the law, always gives more to others than they expect, and does it cheerfully and courteously. #Quote by Walter Russell
Universal quotes by Albert Camus
#83. The logic of the rebel is to want to serve justice so
as not to add to the injustice of the human condition, to insist on plain language so as not to increase the
universal falsehood, and to wager, in spite of human misery, for happiness. #Quote by Albert Camus
Universal quotes by Hans-Georg Gadamer
#84. The sensus communis plays no part in Kant - not even in the logical sense. What Kant treats in the transcendental doctrine of judgment - i.e., the doctrine of schematism and the principles - no longer has anything to do with the sensus communis.57 For here we are concerned with concepts that are supposed to refer to their objects a priori, and not with the subsumption of the particular under the universal. #Quote by Hans-Georg Gadamer
Universal quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#85. Beauty is in the ideal of perfect harmony which is in the Universal Being; Truth the perfect comprehension of the Universal Mind. #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore
Universal quotes by Marianne Williamson
#86. I am a student of universal spiritual principles, and I read theology and spiritual writings, so my grasp of basic spiritual principles is fairly good. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Universal quotes by Joseph Lovering
#87. The great problem of today is, how to subject all physical phenomena to dynamical laws. With all the experimental devices, and all the mathematical appliances of this generation, the human mind has been baffled in its attempts to construct a universal science of physics. #Quote by Joseph Lovering
Universal quotes by Charles Krauthammer
#88. Beyond infrastructure, the conservative sees the proper role of government as providing not European-style universal entitlements but a firm safety net, meaning Julia-like treatment for those who really cannot make it on their own--those too young or too old, too mentally or physically impaired, to provide for themselves.
Limited government so conceived has two indispensable advantages. It avoids inexorable European-style national insolvency. And it avoids breeding debilitating individual dependency. It encourages and celebrates character, independence, energy, hard work as the foundations of a free society and a thriving economy--precisely the virtues Obama discounts and devalues in his accounting of the wealth of nations. #Quote by Charles Krauthammer
Universal quotes by Zadie Smith
#89. He wanted to be in the world and take what came with it, endings local and universal, full stops, periods, looks of injured disappointment and the everyday war. He liked the everyday war. He was taking that with fries. To go. #Quote by Zadie Smith
Universal quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#90. Every step by which an individual substitutes concerted action for isolated action results in an immediate and recognizable improvement in his conditions. The advantages derived from peaceful cooperation and division of labor are universal. #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Universal quotes by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
#91. We do not need to be shoemakers to know if our shoes fit, and just as little have we any need to be professionals to acquire knowledge of matters of universal interest. #Quote by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

#93. People all around the world look different, they wear different kinds of clothes, prepare their food differently, and speak different languages, but their hearts beat for the same emotions -- this is the one and only universal human connection. #Quote by Sanjay Madan
Universal quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#94. Cow-protection can only be secured by cultivating universal friendliness, i.e. ahimsa. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Universal quotes by Lord Kelvin
#95. Although mechanical energy is indestructible, there is a universal tendency to its dissipation, which produces throughout the system a gradual augmentation and diffusion of heat, cessation of motion and exhaustion of the potential energy of the material Universe #Quote by Lord Kelvin
Universal quotes by Albert Camus
#96. Human insurrection, in its exalted and tragic forms, is only, and can only be, a prolonged protest against
death, a violent accusation against the universal death penalty. In every case that we have come across,
the protest is always directed at everything in creation which is dissonant,
opaque, or promises the solution of continuity. Essentially, then, we are dealing with a perpetual demand for unity.
The rejection of death, the desire for immortality and for clarity, are the mainsprings of all these extravagances, whether sublime or puerile. Is it only a cowardly and personal refusal to die? No, for many of these rebels have paid the ultimate price in order to live up to their own demands. The rebel does not ask for life, but for reasons for living.
He rejects the consequences implied by death. If nothing lasts, then nothing is justified; everything that dies is
deprived of meaning. To fight against death amounts to claiming that life has a meaning, to fighting for order and for unity. #Quote by Albert Camus
Universal quotes by Judith Lynne Hanna
#97. Contrary to conventional wisdom, dance is not a universal 'language' but many languages and dialects. There are close to 6000 verbal languages, and probably that many dance languages. #Quote by Judith Lynne Hanna
Universal quotes by Jonathan Wells
#98. The many meanings of 'evolution' are frequently exploited by Darwinists to distract their critics. Eugenie Scott recommends: 'Define evolution as an issue of the history of the planet: as the way we try to understand change through time. The present is different from the past. Evolution happened, there is no debate within science as to whether it happened, and so on ... I have used this approach at the college level.'
Of course, no college student - indeed, no grade-school dropout - doubts that 'the present is different from the past.' Once Scott gets them nodding in agreement, she gradually introduces them to 'The Big Idea' that all species - including monkeys and humans - are related through descent from a common ancestor ... This tactic is called 'equivocation' - changing the meaning of a term in the middle of an argument. #Quote by Jonathan Wells
Universal quotes by Nicholas Roe
#99. Whereas Hunt recommended universal charity, Keats, feeling himself 'in a Mist', relied on a knowing passivity: 'Men should bear with each other - there lives not the Man who may not be cut up, aye hashed to pieces on his weakest side'. #Quote by Nicholas Roe
Universal quotes by Howard Schultz
#100. I've traveled around the world, and what's so revealing is that, despite the differences in culture, politics, language, how people dress, there is a universal feeling that we all want the same thing. We deeply want to be respected and appreciated for our differences. #Quote by Howard Schultz
Universal quotes by Emmy Kay
#101. I think loneliness is one of the greatest and realest things any of us can experience, because there is no one else there to corrupt it or interfere with our perception... which makes it extremely intimate and yet universal simultaneously. #Quote by Emmy Kay
Universal quotes by John Updike
#102. New York, like the Soviet Union, has this universal usefulness: It makes you glad you live elsewhere. #Quote by John Updike
Universal quotes by R.J. Palacio
#103. If every single person in this room made it a rule that wherever you are, whenever you can, you will try to act a little kinder than is necessary
the world really would be a better place. And if you do this, ... someone else, somewhere, someday, may recognize in you, in every single one of you, the face of God ... or whatever politically correct spiritual representation of universal goodness you happen to believe in. #Quote by R.J. Palacio
Universal quotes by Karl Marx
#104. If money is the bond binding me to human life, binding society to me, connecting me with nature and man, is not money the bond of all bonds? Can it not dissolve and bind all ties? Is it not, therefore, also the universal agent of separation? #Quote by Karl Marx
Universal quotes by Longchenpa
#105. in the universal womb that is boundless space
all forms of matter and energy occur
as flux of the four elements,
but all are empty forms, absent in reality:
all phenomena, arising in pure mind, are like that.

just as dream is a part of sleep,
unreal in its arising,
so all and everything is pure mind,
never separated from it,
and without substance or attribute.

experience is neither mind nor anything but mind;
it is a vivid display of emptiness, like magical illusion,
in the very moment inconceivable and unutterable.
all experience arising in the mind,
at its inception, know it as emptiness! #Quote by Longchenpa
Universal quotes by Eric Ludy
#106. It seems to me that we spend most of our spiritual energies trying to explain why the God of Elijah, Samson, David, and Paul seems to have lost His muscle in our modern age. Did He grow tired of performing heroics? Did He wax feeble after all these years of running this whole universal show? Could it be true that God has really lost His muscle? Maybe it would be more accurate to say God lost His men. #Quote by Eric Ludy
Universal quotes by C.S. Lewis
#107. Bereavement is a universal and integral part of our experience of love. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Universal quotes by Plotinus

great that all his parts are infinite. Name any place, and he is already there. #Quote by Plotinus
Universal quotes by Neal Shusterman
#109. Picking locks was not a skill he had ever cultivated, but he persisted day after day, turning the tip of his talon into different ways of approaching a keyhole. He never tired, and he ever gave up ... because if there was any justice in the universe, he wouldn't be trapped here forever. #Quote by Neal Shusterman
Universal quotes by John Sandford
#110. he thought a bit about God, and whether He might be some kind of universal digital computer, subject to the occasional bug or hack. Was it possible that politicians and hedge-fund operators were some kind of garbled cosmic computer code? That the Opponent, instead of having horns and a forked tail, was a fat bearded guy drinking Big Gulps and eating anchovy pizzas and writing viruses down in a hellish basement? That prayers weren't answered because Satan was running denial-of-service attacks? #Quote by John Sandford
Universal quotes by Wayne Teasdale
#111. Interspirituality is essentially an agent of a universal mysticism and integral spirituality. We often walk the interspiritual or intermystical path in an intuitive attempt to reach a more complete truth. That final integration, a deep convergence, is an integral spirituality. Bringing together all the great systems of spiritual wisdom, practice, insight, reflection, experience, and science provides a truly integral understanding of spirituality in its practical application in our lives, regardless of our tradition. #Quote by Wayne Teasdale
Universal quotes by Zoe Marriott
#112. Aside from wanting to write cracking good books that turn children into lifelong readers, I really want to create stories that enable kids to LOOK at the world around them. To see it for what it is, with wide open, wondering eyes. Our mass media is so horribly skewed. It presents this idea of 'normalcy' which excludes and marginalises so many for an idea of commercial viability which is really nothing but blinkered prejudice. People who are black and Asian and Middle Eastern and Hispanic, people who are gay or transgendered or genderqueer, people who have disabilities, disfigurements or illnesses - all have this vision of a world which does not include them shoved down their throats almost 24-7, and they're told 'No one wants to see stories about people like you. Films and TV shows about people like you won't make money. Stories about straight, white, cisgendered, able-bodied people are universal and everyone likes them. You are small and useless and unattractive and you don't matter.'

My worry is that this warped version of 'normal' eventually forms those very same blinkers on children's eyes, depriving them of their ability to see anyone who isn't the same as them, preventing them from developing the ability to empathise with and appreciate and take joy in the lives and experiences of people who are different from them. If Shadows on the Moon - or anything I write - causes a young person to look at their own life, or the life of another, and think, 'Maybe being d #Quote by Zoe Marriott
Universal quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#113. General propositions – universal laws governing human thinking and human existence – leave room for many individualistic permutations. How shall I survive the specter of tomorrow, what is my life plan, and how will I come to terms with the finite lives of all humankind? How do I heal seeping internal wounds that lacerations weaken personal resolve? A person whom avoids seeking fame and fortune and engages in contemplative thought will enjoy a heightened state of existence. My survival hinges upon shedding the shackles of modern time's economic rigors; seeking penance through heartfelt contrition; accepting a vision quest devoid of wanting; rejoicing in my budding curiosity; loving nature; giving breath to living without fear and apprehension; and eliminating any form of want or angst from my cerebral being. Unshackling myself from the burdens of the past – guilt, remorse, anger, and petty resentments – is part of the healing process. The other part of a rehabilitation prescription is declaring free rein to live in the present one moment at a time. After all, humankind is the only member of the animal kingdom that walks this earth with the foreknowledge of its ultimate demise, but why would any person allow information pertaining to our personal fate ruin a perfectly good walk in nature's woodlands with our fellow creatures? #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster

Universal quotes by William J. Bennett

Universal quotes by Stuart Wilde
#116. Now think about the Universal Law. It reflects to you exactly and precisely what you put out. If your thought-forms say, "I haven't got a clue about what I want," the Universal Law is going to say, "Listen, mate, if you haven't got a clue, neither have I. #Quote by Stuart Wilde
Universal quotes by Michael Wood
#117. Home is what we know we ought to want but can't really take. America is not so much a home for anyone as a universal dream of home, a wish whose attraction depends upon its remaining at the level of a wish. The movies bring the boys back but stop as soon as they get them back; for home, that vaunted, all-American ideal, is a sort of death, and an oblique justification for all the wandering that kept you away from it for so long. #Quote by Michael Wood
Universal quotes by Benjamin Rush
#118. The only foundation for a useful education in a republic is to be laid in religion. Without this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty; and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments ... We waste so much time and money in punishing crimes, and take so little pains to prevent them. We profess to be republicans, and yet we neglect the only means of establishing and perpetuating our republican forms of government, that is, the universal education of our youth in the principles of Christianity, by means of the Bible; for this divine book, above all others favors that equality among mankind, that respect for just laws. #Quote by Benjamin Rush
Universal quotes by Anais Nin
#119. The personal, if it is deep enough, becomes universal, mythical, symbolic. #Quote by Anais Nin
Universal quotes by Oscar Auliq-Ice
#120. We need to cultivate a sense of universal responsibility for one another and the planet we share. True happiness comes from a sense of brotherhood and sisterhood, but not from hatred and division. #Quote by Oscar Auliq-Ice
Universal quotes by Alaric Hutchinson
#121. Fairy tales and stories of fantasy bridge the gap and inspires the heart and mind wherever religious thought reaches its limits or meets a dead end. In other words, fairy tales are spiritual in nature, rising above set dogmas and traditions to provide a modern and universal spiritual nourishment for the human soul. #Quote by Alaric Hutchinson
Universal quotes by Bell Hooks
#122. Often their rage erupts because they believe that all ways of looking that highlight difference subvert the liberal belief in a universal subjectivity (we are all just people) that they think will make racism disappear. They have a deep emotional investment in the myth of sameness even as their actions reflect the primacy of whiteness as a sign informing who they are and how they think. #Quote by Bell Hooks
Universal quotes by Steve Maraboli
#123. Perfectly Imperfect

We have all heard that no two snowflakes are alike. Each snowflake takes the perfect form for the maximum efficiency and effectiveness for its journey. And while the universal force of gravity gives them a shared destination, the expansive space in the air gives each snowflake the opportunity to take their own path. They are on the same journey, but each takes a different path.
Along this gravity-driven journey, some snowflakes collide and damage each other, some collide and join together, some are influenced by wind... there are so many transitions and changes that take place along the journey of the snowflake. But, no matter what the transition, the snowflake always finds itself perfectly shaped for its journey.
I find parallels in nature to be a beautiful reflection of grand orchestration. One of these parallels is of snowflakes and us. We, too, are all headed in the same direction. We are being driven by a universal force to the same destination. We are all individuals taking different journeys and along our journey, we sometimes bump into each other, we cross paths, we become altered... we take different physical forms. But at all times we too are 100% perfectly imperfect. At every given moment we are absolutely perfect for what is required for our journey. I'm not perfect for your journey and you're not perfect for my journey, but I'm perfect for my journey and you're perfect for your journey. We're heading to the same place, we #Quote by Steve Maraboli
Universal quotes by Macrina Wiederkehr
#124. inevitably someone will ask me about the word mindfulness with a tone of caution, suggesting that this is a Buddhist concept. It is true that Buddhists have long been faithful to the practice of mindfulness, but striving to live mindfully is a universal quest and belongs to us all. Living mindfully is the art of living awake and ready to embrace the gift of the present moment. #Quote by Macrina Wiederkehr

Universal quotes by Frantz Fanon
#127. As I begin to recognise that the Negro is the symbol of sin, I catch myself hating the Negro. But then I recognise that I am a Negro. There are two ways out of this conflict. Either I ask others to pay no attention to my skin, or else I want them to be aware of it. I try then to find value for what is bad
since I have unthinkingly conceded that the black man is the colour of evil. In order to terminate this neurotic situation, in which I am compelled to choose an unhealthy, conflictual solution, fed on fantasies, hostile, inhuman in short, I have only one solution: to rise above this absurd drama that others have staged around me, to reject the two terms that are equally unacceptable, and through one human being, to reach out for the universal.
When the Negro dives
in other words, goes under
something remarkable occurs. #Quote by Frantz Fanon
Universal quotes by Rai Aren
#128. When I look into the eyes of our animal friends, I feel as if it's the universe itself looking back at me, a profoundly beautiful, deep, and knowing presence. I sense this universal spirit is waiting to see how I will treat them, judging my worthiness of the gift of their companionship. I feel their beauty and purity in the very depths of my soul, and in the process of caring for them and trying to protect them from harm, my heart fills with a love that feels infinite… #Quote by Rai Aren
Universal quotes by Juan Ramon Jimenez
#129. Dynamic ecstasy is absolute romanticism , absolute heroism . And here I return to my point. From my point of view, after the catastrophe which we feel and think is universal, a catastrophe resulting from an excess of useless dynamism of useless progress, of useless realism, of useless technology, after this an unattainable democracy is to be reached through the conception and realization of a new romanticism. #Quote by Juan Ramon Jimenez

Universal quotes by Anne Lamott
#133. If something inside of you is real, we will probably find it interesting, and it will probably be universal. So you must risk placing real emotion at the center of your work. Write straight into the emotional center of things. Write toward vulnerability. Risk being unliked. Tell the truth as you understand it. If you're a writer you have a moral obligation to do this. And it is a revolutionary act - truth is always subversive. #Quote by Anne Lamott
Universal quotes by Eckhart Tolle

Universal quotes by Renée Chae
#135. The radically phenomenal thing about the truth is once you find it, you can dig and dig and you're just going to reveal more and more. There is no end when one starts digging in the direction of the truth. It's the ultimate life adventure. #Quote by Renée Chae
Universal quotes by Alexander Schmemann
#136. On one side it seems there is faith in a Creator-God - and at the same time, the rejection of his creation; and on the other side there is an affirmation of the world, yet a world that is horrible in its meaninglessness, for the one who alone has the possibility of using and enjoying this world - man- is in this world an accidental guest, destined for total annihilation. And so this horrible and frightening dilemma brings us to the one question that each of us must pose: in the final analysis, how do *I* personally relate to this inescapable, universal, and relentless question about death? #Quote by Alexander Schmemann

Universal quotes by Jonathan Edwards
#138. A truly Christian love, either to God or men, is a humble broken-hearted love. The desires of the saints, however earnest, are humble desires. Their hope is a humble hope; and their joy, even when it is unspeakable and full of glory, is a humble broken-hearted joy, and leaves the Christian more poor in spirit, and more like a little child, and more disposed to a universal lowliness of behaviour. #Quote by Jonathan Edwards
Universal quotes by Baruch Spinoza
#139. Man can, indeed, act contrarily to the decrees of God, as far as they have been written like laws in the minds of ourselves or the prophets, but against that eternal decree of God, which is written in universal nature, and has regard to the course of nature as a whole, he can do nothing. #Quote by Baruch Spinoza
Universal quotes by Meir Soloveichik
#140. If God loves human beings and seeks to relate to them because he is drawn to something unique about them, then his love must be exclusive and cannot be universal. #Quote by Meir Soloveichik

#142. The great works belong to no one nation, no one cultural tradition even. They are universal. #Quote by George Brandis
Universal quotes by Samuel Johnson
#143. Religion informs us that misery and sin were produced together. The depravation of human will was followed by a disorder of the harmony of nature; and by that Providence which often places antidotes in the neighborhood of poisons, vice was checked by misery, lest it should swell to universal and unlimited dominion. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Universal quotes by Carol Vorvain
#144. And what if life, rather than being a glamorous stage filled with love and sunshine, was nothing more than a lesson in resilience? Or a universal "Lost and Found"? Lost enthusiasm, Found job; Lost job, Found Freedom; Lost freedom, Found love… #Quote by Carol Vorvain
Universal quotes by B.K.S. Iyengar
#145. In Savasana or in meditation, the light of the eyes is drawn towards the lotus of the heart, so that the seat of the intelligence of the head is brought into contact with the seat of the intelligence of the heart, which is called the mind. Thus one passes from the individualistic state of consciousness to the universal state of consciousness. It is the merging of the intellect of the brain with the intellect of the soul. #Quote by B.K.S. Iyengar
Universal quotes by Graham Greene
#146. I write about situations that are common, universal might be more correct, in which my characters are involved and from which only faith can redeem them, though often the actual manner of the redemption is not immediately clear. They sin, but there is no limit to God's mercy and because this is important, there is a difference between not confessing in fact, and the complacent and the pious may not realize it. #Quote by Graham Greene
Universal quotes by Geoffrey A. Moore
#147. Segways are a classic example of this phenomenon. You've seen them on occasion in malls or in airports, looking something like an old-fashioned lawn mower gone vertical, ridden around by someone in a security professional's uniform. Kind of dorky looking, but don't kid yourself. The gyroscopic balance control is fabulous, and the control movements once mastered are graceful. The hope was these devices would become a universal transport mechanism. Why didn't that happen? In a word: stairs. Stairs are pesky little devils that crop up everywhere, and Segways do not handle them well at all. That's what we call a showstopper. #Quote by Geoffrey A. Moore

Universal quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#150. Socrates dies with honor, surrounded by his disciples listening to the most tender words -the easiest death that one could wish to die. Jesus dies in pain, dishonor, mockery, the object of universal cursing - the most horrible death that one could fear. At the receipt of the cup of poison, Socrates blesses him who could not give it to him without tears; Jesus, while suffering the sharpest pains, prays for His most bitter enemies. If Socrates lived and died like a philosopher, Jesus lived and died like a god. #Quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Universal quotes by Frank Wilczek
#154. Recapitulation

At the beginning of this chapter, I advertised key properties of the Grid, that ur-stuff that underlies physical reality:

The grid fills space and time.

Every fragment of Grid-each space-time element-has the same basic properties as every other fragment.

The Grid is alive with quantum activity. Quantum activity has special characteristics. It is spontaneous and unpredictable. And to observe quantum activity, you must disturb it.

The Grid also contains enduring , material components. The cosmos is a multilayered, multicolored superconductor.

The Grid contains a metric field that gives space-time rigidity and causes gravity.

The Grid weighs, with a universal density. #Quote by Frank Wilczek
Universal quotes by Albert Camus
#155. The more extensive the revolution, the more considerable the chances of the war that it
implies. The society born of the revolution of 1789 wanted to fight for Europe. The society born of the
1917 revolution is fighting for universal dominion. Total revolution ends by demanding - we shall see
why - the control of the world. While waiting for this to happen, if happen it must, the history of man, in
one sense, is the sum total of his successive rebellions. In other words, the movement of transition which
can be clearly expressed in terms of space is only an approximation in terms of time. What was devoutly
called, in the nineteenth century, the progressive emancipation of the human race appears, from the
outside, like an uninterrupted series of rebellions, which overreach themselves and try to find their
formulation in ideas, but which have not yet reached the point of definitive revolution where everything
in heaven and on earth would be stabilized. #Quote by Albert Camus
Universal quotes by Dean Koontz
#156. If emotions were universal, then in one sense he was not alone, never had been alone, and never could be alone....No pain or happiness was unique. All humanity drank from the same river of emotion; and by drinking, every race, religion, and nationality became one indivisible species. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Universal quotes by Arthur Penrhyn Stanley
#157. That is a true sentiment which makes us feel that we do not love our country less, but more, because we have laid up in our minds the knowledge of other lands and other institutions and other races, and have had enkindled afresh within us the instinct of a common humanity, and of the universal beneficence of the Creator. #Quote by Arthur Penrhyn Stanley
Universal quotes by Edmund Burke
#158. The proposition is peace. Not peace through the medium of war; not peace to be hunted through the labyrinth of intricate and endless negotiations; not peace to arise out of universal discord, fomented from principle, in all parts of the empire; not peace to depend on the juridical determination of perplexing questions, or the precise marking the shadowy boundaries of a complex government. It is simple peace, sought in its natural course and in its ordinary haunts. It is peace sought in the spirit of peace, and laid in principles purely pacific. #Quote by Edmund Burke
Universal quotes by Seyyed Hossein Nasr
#159. It must never be forgotten that for non-modern man - whether he be ancient or contemporary - the very stuff of the Universe has a sacred aspect. The cosmos speaks to man and all of its phenomena contain meaning. They are symbols of a higher degree of reality which the cosmic domain at once veils and reveals. The very structure of the cosmos contains a spiritual message for man and is thereby a revelation coming from the same source as religion itself. Both are the manifestations of the Universal Intellect, the Logos, and the cosmos itself is an integral part of that total Universe of meaning in which man lives and dies. #Quote by Seyyed Hossein Nasr
Universal quotes by Anwar Ibrahim
#160. If we in Asia want to speak credibly for Asian values, we must be prepared to also champion those ideals which are universal and belong to humanity as a whole ... It is altogether shameful, if ingenious, to cite 'Asian values' as an excuse for autocratic practices and the denial of basic rights and civil liberties. #Quote by Anwar Ibrahim
Universal quotes by Zbigniew Brzezinski

Universal quotes by Eliezer Yudkowsky
#163. The whole idea of a unified universe with mathematically regular laws, that was what had been flushed down the toilet; the whole notion of physics. Three thousand years of resolving big complicated things into smaller pieces, discovering that the music of the planets was the same tune as a falling apple, finding that the true laws were perfectly universal and had no exceptions anywhere and took the form of simple maths governing the smallest parts, not to mention that the mind was the brain and the brain was made of neurons, a brain was what a person was -

And then a woman turned into a cat, so much for all that. #Quote by Eliezer Yudkowsky
Universal quotes by Nikola Tesla
#164. The universal utilization of water power and its long-distance transmission will supply every household with cheap power and will dispense with the necessity of burning fuel. The struggle for existence being lessened, there should be development along ideal rather than material lines. #Quote by Nikola Tesla
Universal quotes by Daniel Gardner
#165. The rather uncomfortable feeling most of us have when we're around snakes is evidence of how this ancient experience continues to influence us today. Throughout the long prehistory of our species and those that preceded it, snakes were a mortal threat. And so we learned our lesson. Others didn't, but that had a nasty habit of dying. So natural selection did its work and the rule
beware of snakes
was ultimately hardwired into every human brain. It's universal. Go anywhere on the planet, examine any culture. People are wary of snakes. Even if
as in the Arctic
there are no snakes. Our primate cousins shared our long experience and they feel the same way: Even monkeys raised in laboratories who have never seen a snake will back away at the sight of one. #Quote by Daniel Gardner
Universal quotes by Ernest L. Boyer
#166. Art is humanity's most essential, most universal language. It is not a frill, but a necessary part of communication. The quality of civilization can be measured through its music, dance, drama, architecture, visual art and literature. We must give our children knowledge and understanding of civilization's most profound works. #Quote by Ernest L. Boyer

Universal quotes by Douglas Coupland

#171. Mysticism - Magic and Yoga - is the means, therefore, to a new universal life, richer, greater and more full of resource than ever before, as free as sunlight, as gracious as the unfolding of a rose. It is for man (and woman) to take. #Quote by Israel Regardie
Universal quotes by Ernst F. Schumacher
#172. All philosophers - and others - have always paid a great deal of attention to ideas seen as the result of thought and observation; but in modern times all too little attention has been paid to the study of the ideas which form the very instruments by which thought and observation proceed. On the basis of experience and conscious thought small ideas may easily be dislodged, but when it comes to bigger. more universal, or more subtle ideas it may not be so easy to change them. Indeed, it is often difficult to become aware of them, as they are the instruments and not the results of our thinking - just as you can see what is outside you, but cannot easily see that with which you see, the eye itself. #Quote by Ernst F. Schumacher
Universal quotes by Robert Kocharian
#173. For us, universal values such as justice, morality and peace cannot be disputed and it is for this reason that we pursue the restoration of historical truth. #Quote by Robert Kocharian
Universal quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#174. Weak or wicked, great or small, in men and in animal, resides the same omnipresent, omniscient soul. The difference is not in the soul, but in the manifestation. Between me and the smallest animal the difference is only of manifestation, but as a principle he is the same as I am, he is my brother, he has the same soul as I have. This is the principle of Universal Brotherhood of man with one another, with all life down to the little ants. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Universal quotes by Daniel Immerwahr
#175. Hoover's greatest challenge was one of the least visible: the humble screw thread. Screws, nuts, and bolts are universal fasteners. They function in industrial societies, as one writer put it, like salt and pepper "sprinkled on practically every conceivable kind of apparatus." Yet every such society encounters, early on, the vexing problem of incompatible screw threads. Different screws have different measurements, including the thread angles. If those don't line up between the males and the females, you are, so to speak, screwed. .... Screw thread incompatibilities grew even more worrisome with the advent of cars and planes - complex vibrating objects whose failure could mean death. The problem had hobbled the armed forces in the First World War, which led Congress to appoint a National Screw Thread Commission. Still, it took years, until 1924, before the first national screw thread standard was finally published. It wasn't a big-splash innovation like the Model T or the airplane, but that hard-won screw thread standard quietly accelerated the economy nonetheless. #Quote by Daniel Immerwahr
Universal quotes by Josh Kaufman
#176. Options are often an overlooked form of value - flexibility is one of the Three Universal Currencies (discussed later). Find a way to give people more flexibility, and you may discover a viable business model. #Quote by Josh Kaufman
Universal quotes by George Hickenlooper
#177. I'm fascinated by failure, and I'm fascinated by finality. Shakespeare's historical plays are more universal than his comedies because they relate to the finality of life. Without finality, life would not be beautiful. #Quote by George Hickenlooper
Universal quotes by Blaise Pascal
#178. For as old age is that period of life most remote from infancy, who does not see that old age in this universal man ought not to be sought in the times nearest his birth, but in those most
remote from it? #Quote by Blaise Pascal
Universal quotes by Dalai Lama
#179. I believe that to meet the challenge of our times, human beings will have to develop a greater sense of universal responsibility. We must all learn to work not just for our own self, family, or nation but for the benefit of all humankind. Universal responsibility is the key to human survival. It is the best foundation for world peace, the equitable use of natural resources, and through concern for future generations, the proper care of the environment. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Universal quotes by Karl Marx
#180. The state is based on this contradiction. It is based on the contradiction between public and private life, between universal and particular interests. For this reason, the state must confine itself to formal, negative activities. #Quote by Karl Marx
Universal quotes by Svetlana Boym
#181. What is crucial is that nostalgia was not merely an expression of local longing, but a result of a new understanding of time and space that made the division into "local" and "universal" possible. The nostalgic creature has internalized this division, but instead of aspiring for the universal and the progressive he looks backward and yearns for the particular. #Quote by Svetlana Boym
Universal quotes by Timothy M. Dolan
#182. The National Catholic Register's coverage of the Church universal, and the Church in our own country, is splendid. #Quote by Timothy M. Dolan
Universal quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#183. Silence is the universal refuge, the sequel to all dull discourses and all foolish acts, a balm to our every chagrin, as welcome after satiety as after disappointment; that background which the painter may not daub, be he master or bungler, and which, however awkward a figure we may have made in the foreground, remains ever our inviolable asylum, where no indignity can assail, no personality can disturb us. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Universal quotes by Anthony Marais
#184. When a scientist splits an atom, the event is locked away like a jewel in a castle, funneling down to the public through a myriad of institutions. But when an artist stumbles upon the key to unleashing universal evil, the forbidden fruit of his painstaking labor is packaged and sold at every corner store from Bangor to Bangkok. I'm still unsure whether this is the result of a lack of respect for artists (compared to scientists) or the moral corruption of artists (compared to scientists). #Quote by Anthony Marais
Universal quotes by James Clavell
#185. By universal custom, your enemy is never more polite than when he is planning or has planned your destruction. #Quote by James Clavell
Universal quotes by Vishal Chipkar
#186. Everyday is a new day, it is a morning dream as a day which we don't realize but the actual day starts when we fall asleep in our conciousness and report to the universal god, the Supreme Power. #Quote by Vishal Chipkar
Universal quotes by Suze Orman
#187. Money is a topic that touches all races, all religions, all sexes, all ages, all tax brackets. It's a universal language that truly has been held up to us in society as a thing that determines whether we are successful, worthy, whether we have contributed something to life or not. #Quote by Suze Orman
Universal quotes by Thomas Tull
#188. Whether a studio partner is 50/50 with us, or we do 100%, or we do 75% or 90% and for the most part they just distribute, whether that's Warner Brothers or now Universal, it's always a unique situation. Every movie is almost like a start up company. #Quote by Thomas Tull
Universal quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#189. As an old soldier, I admit the cowardice: it's as universal as seasickness, and matters just as little. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Universal quotes by David Brooks
#190. Bobos are uncomfortable with universal moral laws that purport to regulate pleasure. Bobos prefer more prosaic self-controlled regimes. The things that are forbidden are unhealthy or unsafe. The things that are encouraged are enriching or calorie burning. In other words, we regulate our carnal desires with health codes instead of moral codes. #Quote by David Brooks
Universal quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#191. I write so others might contemplate things that are out of the ordinary. I write to make people feel - to cause laughter and tears and anger at injustice. I write so the world will imagine and wonder at crazy, incredible truths. I write to have a tiny bit of influence on a universal conscience. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Universal quotes by Nicholas D. Kristof
#192. The single most important way to encourage women and girls to stand up for their rights is education, and we can do far more to promote universal education in poor countries. #Quote by Nicholas D. Kristof
Universal quotes by May Sarton
#193. One must believe that private dilemmas are, if deeply examined, universal, and so, if expressed, have a human value beyond the private, and one must also believe in the vehicle for expressing them, in the talent. #Quote by May Sarton
Universal quotes by Ned Vizzini
#194. Do you know about lock picking?"
"I'm sure it's like sex."
"I'm sure it's not like sex."
"How would you know? Everything's like sex. It's the universal metaphor. To pick a lock, let me guess, you have to go slow at first, but then you have to pull off some fancy moves, and you have to stay concentrated, and you have to stick something in something, right? #Quote by Ned Vizzini
Universal quotes by Norman Cousins
#195. The marvelous pharmacy that was designed by nature and placed into our being by the universal architect produces most of the medicines we need. #Quote by Norman Cousins
Universal quotes by Peter Høeg
#196. Time refuses to be simplified and reduced. You cannot say that it is found only in the mind or only in the universe, that it runs only in one direction, or in every one imaginable. That it exists only in biological substructure, or is only a social convention. That it is only individual or only collective, only cyclic, only linear, relative, absolute, determined, universal or only local, only indeterminate, illusory, totally true, immeasurable, measurable, explicable, or unapproachable. It is all of these things. #Quote by Peter Høeg
Universal quotes by Dean Koontz
#197. Books had shown me, however, that all people everywhere wanted their lives to have purpose and meaning. This longing was universal. Even I, in my terrible difference, wanted nothing less than purpose and meaning. Chapter 8, pgs 35-36 #Quote by Dean Koontz
Universal quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#198. The right to err, which means the freedom to try experiments, is the universal condition of all progress. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Universal quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#199. And so worship is bound up with all three dimensions of the circular movement: the personal, the social, and the universal. #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
Universal quotes by Amanda Palmer
#200. WHO'S GOT A TAMPON? I JUST GOT MY PERIOD, I will announce loudly to nobody in particular in a women's bathroom in a San Francisco restaurant, or to a co-ed dressing room of a music festival in Prague, or to the unsuspecting gatherers in a kitchen at a party in Sydney, Munich, or Cincinnati. Invariably, across the world, I have seen and heard the rustling of female hands through backpacks and purses, until the triumphant moment when a stranger fishes one out with a kind smile. No money is ever exchanged. The unspoken universal understanding is: Today, it is my turn to take the tampon. Tomorrow, it shall be yours. There is a constant, karmic tampon circle. It also exists, I've found, with Kleenex, cigarettes, and ballpoint pens. #Quote by Amanda Palmer
