There is a paradox in the growth of scientific knowledge. As information accumulates in ever more intimidating quantities, disconnected facts and impenetrable mysteries gives way to rational explanations, and simplicity emerges from chaos…

Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity.

“From my thirteenth year on, it was clear to me that I wanted to be either a poet or nothing at all.”

Hermann Hesse in his “Life Story Briefly Told

Wisdom is not communicable. The wisdom which a wise man tries to communicate always sounds foolish… Knowledge can be communicated, but not wisdom. One can find it, live it, do wonders through it, but one cannot communicate and teach it.

-Hermann Hesse

Poetry is what gets lost in translation.

– Robert Frost

Poetry is being, not doing.
– E.E. Cummings

——————————————————————————————————

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be
understood by everyone, something that no one ever
knew before. But in poetry, it’s the exact opposite.

-Paul Dirac

A drop
Melting into the sea,
Everyone can see.
But the sea
Absorped
In a drop–
A rare one
can follow !

Which is more difficult, to awaken one who sleeps or to awaken one who, awake, dreams that he is awake ?

Søren Kierkegaard

Where are there are two desires in a man’s heart he has no choice between the two but must obey the strongest, there being no such thing as free will in the composition of any human being that ever lived.

– Mark Twain in Eruption

————————————————————–
One can only become a philosopher, not be one.
As soon as one thinks one is a philosopher, one stops becoming one.

-Friendrich Von Schlegel

—————————————————————————

Reality cannot be found except in One single source, because of the interconnection of all things with one another. … I do not conceive of any reality at all as without genuine unity. … I maintain also that substances, whether material or immaterial, cannot be conceived in their bare essence without any activity, activity being of the essence of substance in general.

Gottfried Leibniz, 1646 – 1716

One day it will have to be officially admitted that what we have christened reality is an even greater illusion than the world of dreams.

The greater the artist, the greater the doubt. Perfect confidence is granted to the less talented as a consolation prize. – ::: Robert Hughes – Art Critic :::

Mirrors should reflect a little before throwing back images.-

“Each day, we’re given many opportunities to open up or shut down. The most precious opportunity presents itself when we come to the place where we think we can’t handle whatever is happening.”

I am looking at you,
You at him,
Kabir asks, how to solve
This puzzle —
You, he, and I ?

    BHai,

    I was particularly fascinated by the Couplet by Sant Kabir.

    It boggles one, how on earth can one think like that. I guess its beyond thinking.

    I wish i can find this couplet in its original language it was written. May be Max Guruji can be of help to us.

    Regards

    I love this all! Beautiful expansive imagery and I am in awe of trees also, as in your mindspace page. I am drawn to the Leibniz, Dali and Whitman quotes. Thank you . . .
