Ganesha the god-maker regarded the jungle about him. Though he walked through the realm of the phantom cats, he feared no evil. For the Lord of Chaos walked by his side, and the Trident of Destruction comforted him.
Chaos is the score upon which reality is written.
Think well about this, dear brothers and sisters, and you will see that we should have been in a state of terrible Chaos, in a fratricidal war, in a country which would no longer be Yugoslavia, but be only a group of petty little states fighting among themselves and destroying each other. But our people do not want that to happen.josip broz tito
Whoever lights the torch of war in Europe can wish for nothing but Chaos.Adolf Hitler
At one point consciousness-altering devices like the microscope and telescope were criminalized for exactly the same reasons that psychedelic plants were banned in later years. They allow us to peer into bits and zones of Chaos.timothy leary
Were it not for the mind change of Sai devotees the world would already have fallen into complete Chaos. The deterioration of mind and man has been very rapid and abrupt, even precipitous during the last fifteen years. That the world is not in total destruction is due to the change of mind of Sai devotees and to Sai's grace.sathya sai baba
Human history, like all great movements, was cyclical, and returned to the point of beginning. the idea of indefinite progress in a right line was a chimera of the imagination, with no analogue in nature. The parabola of a comet was perhaps a better illustration of the career of humanity. Tending upward and sunward from the aphelion of barbarism, the race attained the perihelion of civilization only to plunge downward once more to its nether goal in the regions of Chaos.edward bellamy
Unable to create a meaningful life for itself, the personality takes its own revenge: from the lower depths comes a regressive form of spontaneity: raw animality forms a counterpoise to the meaningless stimuli and the vicarious life to which the ordinary man is conditioned. Getting spiritual nourishment from this Chaos of events, sensations, and devious interpretations is the equivalent of trying to pick through a garbage pile for food.Lewis Mumford
I am convinced that the majority of the religious hierarchy today deplores the hardship inflicted on our people. I am referring not only to the martyrs but of the families who have been dispersed and terrified, who have no resources, and to the four million unemployed who are suffering from the economic Chaos of a country which only a year earlier was giving employment to a million foreigners. Those who have chosen to serve God must feel profoundly sad at seeing ridicule poured on the most sacred principles of our religion.muhammad reza pahlavi
What, after all, is a better example of Chaos theory than the harassment of a street vendor in Tunisia leading to a civil war in Syria?
Falling between order and Chaos, the moment of complexity is the point at which self-organizing systems emerge to create new patterns of coherence and structures of behaviour.
Note: Character is a vampire who in life had been a friend of Xander's. However, when a group of vampires, Jesse among them, attack a nightclub and kidnap the people there, Buffy and friends turn up and fight the vampires off, allowing the people to escape, and in the Chaos, Xander catches up with Jesse, who says the above line mockingly to Xander when Xander threatiningly holds a stake against his heart, right before a panic-stricken girl crashes into him from behind, knocking him forward onto Xander's stake and killing him.
Chaos, rudis indigestaque moles. Chaos, a rough unordered mass.
In Chaos Magic , beliefs are not seen as ends in themselves, but as tools for creating desired effects. To fully realize this is to face a terrible freedom in which nothing is true and everything is permitted, which is to say that everything is possible, there are no certainties , and the consequences can be ghastly.peter j. carroll
Poetry?is capable of saving us; it is a perfectly possible means of overcoming Chaos.I(vor) A(rmstrong) Richards
Progress everywhere today does seem to come so very heavily disguised as Chaos.joyce grenfell
To say that man has already achieved the ultimate and absolute truth is like a tribal taboo which says that a given river may never be crossed because the witch doctor proves beyond all reason that there is only Chaos beyond. The most puzzling of all contradictory concepts given me is the human will to set up such arbitrary limits to his comprehension.mark clifton
Now in all of us, however constituted, but to a degree the greater in proportion as we are intense and sensitive and subject to diversified temptations, and to the greatest possible degree if we are decidedly psychopathic, does the normal evolution of character chiefly consist in the straightening out and unifying of the inner self. The higher and the lower feelings, the useful and the erring impulses, begin by being a comparative Chaos within us they must end by forming a stable system of functions in right subordination. Unhappiness is apt to characterize the period of order-making and struggle.william james
The armed forces have acted today solely from the patriotic inspiration of saving the country from the tremendous Chaos into which it was being plunged by the Marxist government of Salvador Allende.… The Junta will maintain judicial power and consultantship of the Comptroller. The Chambers will remain in recess until further orders. That is all.augusto pinochet
[Bandleader Hartley] apparently believed that music could be more powerful that physical force in bringing order to Chaos.steve turner
Wherever in a home there is immaturity, lack of self-control, and anti-social stimuli, coercion may be necessary in order to safeguard the other members of the family, and to prevent remorse for irreparable wrongdoing. To say that restraint administered in love and with the welfare of all concerned vividly in mind is immoral, is to reduce society to anarchy and Chaos.
...the human being...Who has organized the Chaos of his passions, given style to his character, and become creative. Aware of life's terrors, he affirms life without resentment. Friedrich Nietzsche, in A Brief Introduction to the Genius of Nietzsche, p.49 Man has developed the peculiar concept that he is not an animal at all …:;He demarcates himself in all possible ways from the bad animal and points, in proof of his "being better," to culture and civilization which distinguish him from the animal. … The theory of the German Übermensch has this origin. ~ Wilhelm Reich
Why are you here?:; My city is in Chaos because of you!
