"Everything is governed by one law. A human being is a microcosmos, i.e. the laws prevailing in the cosmos also operate in the minutest space of the human being."
I was brought up to believe that cricket is the most important activity in men's lives, the most important thread in the fabric of the cosmos.bernard hollowood
As the first human to land on any world outside the Earth, and probably the first living creature of any sort to come from the Earth and reach the Moon, his legacy will be safe as long as intelligent life survives in this corner of the cosmos.hugh downs
Our neighborhood - this solar system, the cosmos, actually - is so much more vast and amazing than the paltry headlines, insanity, and politics crammed at us daily as so-called news. The beauty of the hood and discoveries that await us are deserving of our attention and mandatory to our survival as a species.vanna bonta
It seemed to me that I now saw the Star Maker in two aspects: as the spirit's particular creative mood that had given rise to me, the cosmos; and also, most dreadfully, as something incomparably greater than creativity, namely as the eternally achieved perfection of the absolute spirit. Barren, barren and trivial are these words. But not barren the experience.Olaf Stapledon
The cosmos exploded, actualizing its potentiality of space and time. The centers of power, like fragments of a bursting bomb, were hurled apart. But each one retained in itself, as a memory and a longing, the single point of the whole; and each mirrored in itself aspects of all the others throughout all the cosmical space and time.Olaf Stapledon
To say that the cosmos was expanding is equally to say that its members were contracting. The ultimate centers of power, each at first coincident... themselves generated the cosmical space by their disengagement from each other.Olaf Stapledon
The expansion of the whole cosmos was but the shrinkage of all its physical units and of the wavelengths of light.Olaf Stapledon
I happen to prefer champagne to ditchwater, but there is no reason to suppose that the cosmos does.Holmes, Jr., Oliver Wendell
For the philosophy which is so important in each of us is not a technical matter; it is our more or less dumb sense of what life honestly and deeply means. It is only partly got from books; it is our individual way of just seeing and feeling the total push and pressure of the cosmos.william james
He was a stranger in a strange land: lost in the cosmos, a man with neither compass nor guide, sitting in a tomb in Egypt surrounded by the dead, with Giles a man his own age, but separated by class and sensibility and four hundred years looking to him for answers.stephen r. lawhead
We don't want to conquer the cosmos, we simply want to extend the boundaries of Earth to the frontiers of the cosmos.stanisław lem
I know that the molecules in my body are traceable to phenomena in the cosmos.neil degrasse tyson
When a man no longer confuses himself with the definition of himself that others have given him, he is at once universal and unique. He is universal by virtue of the inseparability of his organism from the cosmos. He is unique in that he is just this organism and not any stereotype of role, class, or identity assumed for the convenience of social communication.alan watts
For Nature while I supervise gives birth to moving and unmoving, and as this motive-force applies the cosmos is revolving.
There are two Beings (Purushas) in the cosmos, the destructible and the indestructible. The creatures are the destructible, the Kutastha is the indestructible. But there exists Another, the Highest Being, designated the "Supreme Spirit" the Eternal Lord who, permeating the three worlds, upholds them.
For all this diversity , the core of East Indian spirituality is Hinduism , especially as disclosed in the notion of leela (also spelled lila), or play. The entire cosmos is a leela, a dance of energy , a drama staged by Brahman , the Absolute . Leelas are also specific celebrations.
The arts of prophecy and of healing, which are part of the cosmos, come of the good providence of the Gods.
In the Craft the Goddess is not omnipotent. The cosmos is interesting rather than perfect , and everything is not part of some greater plan, nor is all necessarily under control. Understanding this keeps us humble, able to admit that we cannot know or control or define everything.
I felt like I'd been misplaced in the cosmos and I belonged in Maine.
The cosmology of scientific materialism ... considers the cosmos an absurd accident, and life within it to be no more than another accident.
The humorous look of children is perhaps the most endearing of all the bonds that hold the cosmos together. Their top-heavy dignity is more touching than any humility; their solemnity gives us more hope for all things than a thousand carnivals of optimism; their large and lustrous eyes seem to hold all the stars in their astonishment; their fascinating absence of nose seems to give to us the most perfect hint of the humour that awaits us in the kingdom of heaven.gilbert keith chesterton
In the vastness of the cosmos there must be other civilizations far older and more advanced than ours.carl sagan
