Say nothing of my religion. It is known to God and myself alone. Its evidence before the world is to be sought in my life: if it has been honest and dutiful to society the religion which has regulated it cannot be a bad one.

Thomas Jefferson

Saying we should keep the two-party political system simply because it is working is like saying the Titanic voyage was a success because a few people survived on life rafts.

Eugene McCarthy

Schrodinger's Cat is a classic example of Paradox, in my view. In actuality, it was a Gedankenexperiment or a Thought Experiment, created by Austrian Physicist Erwin Schrodinger in 1935. Not many folks are probably aware that Schrodinger himself called that experiment “a ridiculous case.” Here’s the "Schrodinger's Cat" in Schrodinger's own words: “A cat is penned up in a steel chamber, along with the following device (which must be secured against direct interference by the cat): In a Geiger Counter, there is a tiny bit of radioactive substance, so small, that perhaps in the course of the hour one of the atoms decays, but also, with equal probability, perhaps none. If it (i.e. decay) happens, the Geiger Counter discharges and through a relay releases a hammer that shatters a small flask of Hydrogen Cyanide. If one has left this entire system to itself for an hour, one would say that the cat still lives if meanwhile no atom has (undergone) radioactive decay.” So you see, the cat's life or death truly depends on the formation of a subatomic alpha particle that triggers off the avalanche of electrons in the Geiger Counter. There is an equal probability that it may not happen, and hence the cat should remain both alive and dead per Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics. Philosophically speaking, Human Life is full of paradoxes, and we often find that the uncertainties therein bear a startling resemblance with Schrodinger's Cat experiment. The total randomness of events that shape our human lives, and determinedly control the outcome (i.e. future) can be extremely perplexing and equally thought-provoking as Schrodinger's Cat experiment....a pre-written and pre-destined Reductio ad absurdum perhaps!

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Science is organized knowledge. Wisdom is organized life.

Immanuel Kant

Science is the most reliable guide in life.

M.K. Ataturk

Science is the only true guide in life.

Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, Founder of modern Turkey 22.09.1924

Science is the only truth and it is the great lie. It knows nothing, and people think it knows everything. It is misrepresented. People think that science is electricity, automobilism, and dirigible balloons. It is something very different. It is life devouring itself. It is the sensibility transformed into intelligence. It is the need to know stifling the need to live. It is the genius of knowledge vivisecting the vital genius.

Remy de Gourmont

Science says 'We must live,' and seeks the means of prolonging, increasing, facilitating and amplifying life, of making it tolerable and acceptable, wisdom says 'We must die,' and seeks how to make us die well.

Socrates

Science, which cuts its way through the muddy pond of daily life without mingling with it, casts its wealth to right and left, but the puny boatmen do not know how to fish for it.

Alexander Herzen

Security is an illusion. Life is either a daring adventure or it is nothing at all.

Keller

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature.... Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.

Helen Keller

Security is when everything is settled, when nothing can happen to you; security is the denial of life.

Germaine Greer

Security is when everything is settled. When nothing can happen to you. Security is the denial of life.

Germaine Greer

Seeing death as the end of life is like seeing the horizon as the end of the ocean.

David Searls

Seeing our Father in everything makes life one long thanksgiving and gives rest of the heart.

Hannah Whitall Smith

Seek for the endless life in the world, because with death, there remains neither the seeker nor the sought! The other world is altogether an illusion! Stop deceiving yourself; seek for the endless life in the world!

Mehmet Murat ildan

Seek not that the things which happen should happen as you wish but wish the things which happen to be as they are, and you will have a tranquil flow of life.

Epictetus

Seek not, my soul, the life of the immortals but enjoy to the full the resources that are within thy reach.

Pindar

Seek not, my soul, the life of the immortals; but enjoy to the full the resources that are within thy reach.

Pindar, 518-438 B.C.

Seek to cultivate a buoyant, joyous sense of the crowded kindnesses of God in your daily life.

Alexander MacLaren

Seizing the power of now is what will help you propel your life to where you need to be."

Steve Maraboli

Self-belief in the stressful life is the sole source of relief to the soul.

Anuj Somany

Self-centeredness is inhumane. Oh! Yes, life isn't meant to be all about you. And so, others ought to be among your priorities.

Emeasoba George

Self-immolation as a way to protest against the injustices or as a way to fight for freedom cannot be accepted! All the fights must be done in the dimension of existence! Your body is your road to everywhere; if you destroy it, you lose all the roads! Stay firm and fight alive; no cause is more valuable than a man’s life! Keep your body out of the fire! Don’t ever praise the self-immolations; condemn them! Suicide is a defeat! Power is to fight, to fight peacefully, and not to die in agony!

Mehmet Murat ildan

Self-respect permeates every aspect of your life.

Charles Joseph Joe Clark
