Where science and scholarship reach the limits beyond which they can not go...
There begins the realm of art which is able to express That which lies beyond all rational knowledge.
Anton Bruckner (1824–1896), Composer.
Until one is committed, there is a hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness concerning all acts of initiative (and creation).
There is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans:
That the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too.
All sorts of things occur to help one that would never have occurred.
A whole stream of events issue forth from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance which no person could have ever dreamed would come their way.
Whatever you can dream you can begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)
Our days are precious but we gladly see them going
If in their place, we find a thing more precious growing.
A rare exotic plant, our gardener's heart delighting;
A child whom we are teaching, a booklet we are writing.
Hermann Hesse (The Glass Bead Game)
"I´ve seen things you people wouldn't believe,
Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion
I watched C-Beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate
All those... moments... will be lost in time Like tears in the rain... Time to die"
