He commenced a systematic search of the cabin; but his attention was soon riveted by the books which seemed to exert a strange and powerful influence over him, so that he could scarce attend to aught else for the lure of the wondrous puzzle which their purpose presented to him.Among the other books were a primer, some child's readers, numerous picture books, and a great dictionary. All of these he examined, but the pictures caught his fancy most, though the strange little bugs which covered the pages where there were no pictures excited his wonder and deepest thought.
A very great vision is needed, and the man who has it must follow it as the eagle seeks the deepest blue of the sky.crazy horse
India of the ages is not dead nor has she spoken her last creative word; she lives and has still something to do for herself and the human peoples. And that which must seek now to awake is not an anglicised oriental people, docile pupil of the West and doomed to repeat the cycle of the occident's success and failure, but still the ancient immemorable Shakti recovering her deepest self, lifting her head higher towards the supreme source of light and strength and turning to discover the complete meaning and a vaster form of her Dharma.sri aurobindo
Your eyes, accustomed to semi-darkness, will soon open to more radiant visions of light. The shadows which we shall paint shall be more luminous than the high-lights of our predecessors, and our pictures, next to those of the museums, will shine like blinding daylight, compared with deepest night. We conclude that painting cannot exist today without divisionism… …Divisionism, for the modern painter, must be an innate complementariness which we declare to be essential and necessary.Umberto Boccioni
The belief that there is only one truth and that oneself is in possession of it, seems to me the deepest root of all that is evil in the world.Max Born
One of the deepest and strangest of all human moods is the mood which will suddenly strike us perhaps in a garden at night , or deep in sloping meadows, the feeling that every flower and leaf has just uttered something stupendously direct and important, and that we have by a prodigy of imbecility not heard or understood it. There is a certain poetic value , and that a genuine one, in this sense of having missed the full meaning of things. There is beauty , not only in wisdom , but in this dazed and dramatic ignorance .gilbert keith chesterton
The gods of the Disc have never bothered much about judging the souls of the dead, and so people only go to hell if that's where they believe, in their deepest heart, that they deserve to go. Which they won't do if they don't know about it. This explains why it is so important to shoot missionaries on sight.terry pratchett

Under floods that are deepest, which Neptune obey, over rocks that are steepest, Love will find out the way.Thomas Percy
The deepest thing I know is that I am living and dying at once, and my conviction is to report that dialogue.StanleyJasspon Kunitz
Chords that vibrate sweetest pleasureThrill the deepest notes of woe.Robert Burns
Where the streame runneth smoothest, the water is deepest.john lyly
She closed her eyes. And while her intellect wouldn’t let her realize her deepest fear, that all this might soon be gone forever, nevertheless she stood there for a time and worshipped the only way a person like her could worship in silence and solitude, under the temple of the sky.david brin
"The attitude to sexual love in the 'pop' song is so ugly and mechanical as to seem schizoid, and psychopathological. Exposed as they are to such powerful cultural statements, young people are being encouraged to forfeit genuine commitment in love in favour of depersonalised sexual activity, with an undercurrent of violence, and to take false solutions in which they must deny their deepest needs, by hate."
Far from poisoning the mind, pornography shows the deepest truth about sexuality, stripped of romantic veneer.camille paglia
But now, the sounds of infancy, always nearest the heart, and sure to come to the lips in our deepest emotion, returned in His anguish; and in words which He had learned at His mother's knee, His heart uttered its last wail "Eloi! Eloi! lama sabachthani?" "My God! My God! why hast Thou forsaken me?"
We can never really change other people . . . all we can change is ourselves. This process takes a lot of grace and strength that we don’t have apart from God . But in his compassionate, creative hands, our wounds and sins can become the source of our deepest growth.
I have ever gained the most profit, and the most pleasure also, from the books which have made me think the most: and, when the difficulties have once been overcome, these are the books which have struck the deepest root, not only in my memory and understanding, but likewise in my affections.
Enhance and intensify one's vision of that synthesis of truth and beauty which is the highest and deepest reality.
Be sure that your soul is never so intensely alive as when in the deepest abnegation it waits hushed before God .
Lao-tse may be regarded as the deepest thinker of Chinese antiquity.
