Where is the subject that does not branch out into infinity? For every grain of sand is a mystery; so is every daisy in summer, and so is every snowflake in winter. Both upwards and downwards, and all around us, science and speculation pass into mystery at last.
To see a world in a grain of sand, And heaven in a wild flower, Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, And eternity in an hour.william blake
:;The life of the spirit is the expression of infinity and, as such, knows no artificial limits. True spirituality is not to be mistaken for an exclusive enthusiasm for some fad. It is not concerned with any “ism.” When people seek spirituality apart from life, as if it had nothing to do with the material world, their search is futile.meher baba
In the realm of science, all attempts to find any evidence of supernatural beings, of metaphysical concepts, as God, immortality, infinity, etc have thus far failed, and if we are honest, we must confess that in science there exists no God, no immortality, no soul or mind, as distinct from the body.Charles Proteus Steinmetz
Let us put aside resolutely that great fright, tenderly and without malice, daring to be wrong in something important rather than right in some meticulous banality, fearing no evil while the mind is free to search, imagine, and conclude, inviting our countrymen to try other instruments than coercion and suppression in the effort to meet destiny with triumph, genially suspecting that no creed yet calendared in the annals of politics mirrors the doomful possibilities of infinity.charles a. beard
Mystery has its own mysteries, and there are gods above gods. We have ours, they have theirs. That is what’s known as infinity.jean cocteau
First understand infinity then you will understand God and how evolution is intelligent design.e. lee spence
We must not suppose that, because a man is a rational animal, he will, therefore, always act rationally; or, because he has such or such a predominant passion, that he will act invariably and consequentially in pursuit of it. No, we are complicated machines; and though we have one main spring that gives motion to the whole, we have an infinity of little wheels, which, in their turns, retard, precipitate, and sometime stop that motion.stanhope, philip, 4th earl of chesterfield
The creator, if he should love his creature, would be loving only a part of himself; but the creature, praising the creator, praises an infinity beyond himself.Olaf Stapledon
A parabola is bound by one law which fixes its relations with two straight lines at every point; yet it has no end short of infinity, and it continually changes its direction. The Initiate who is aware Who he is can always check is conduct by reference to the determinants of his curve, and calculate his past, his future, his bearings, and his proper course at any assigned moment; he can even comprehend himself as a simple idea.aleister crowley
His own infinity becomes zero in relation to that of the least fragment of the solid. He hardly exists at all. Trillions multiplies by trillions of trillions of such as he could not cross the frontier even of breadth, the idea which he came to guess at only because he felt himself bound by some mysterious power.aleister crowley
I am incapable of conceiving infinity, and yet I do not accept finity. I want this adventure that is the context of my life to go on without end.Simone de Beauvoir
Where are the real sources of human dignity, freedom and modern democracy, if not in the concept of infinity to which all men are equal?Louis Pasteur
This vain presumption, of understanding everything, can have no other basis than never understanding anything . For anyone who had experienced just once the understanding of one single thing , thus truly tasting how knowledge is accomplished, would then recognize that of the infinity of other truths, he understands nothing .kim stanley robinson
What does infinity mean to you? Are you not infinity and yourself?
infinity is the end. End without infinity is but a new beginning.
I believe that there is no part of matter which is not I do not say divisible but actually divisible; and consequently the least particle ought to be considered as a world full of an infinity of different creatures.
The one infinite is perfect , in simplicity , of itself, absolutely, nor can aught be greater or better, This is the one Whole, God , universal Nature , occupying all space, of whom naught but infinity can give the perfect image or semblance.
I sleep and I unsleep. On the other side of me, beyond where I lie down, the silence of the house touches infinity. I hear time falling, drop by drop, and no falling drop is heard falling.
The whole time of my life may be divided into an infinity of parts, each of which is in no way dependent on any other; and, accordingly, because I was in existence a short time ago, it does not follow that I must now exist, unless in this moment some cause create me anew as it were, that is, conserve me.
They despise the immediate as trivial ; I know that it is trivial, but cherish rather than despise it because everything, including infinity itself, is trivial.
You and I are essentially infinite choice-makers. In every moment of our existence, we are in that field of all possibilities where we have access to an infinity of choices.deepak chopra
To see a World in a Grain of Sand And a Heaven in a Wild Flower , Hold infinity in the palm of your hand And Eternity in an hour.
