I love to travel, but I hate to arrive.
Les enfants n'ont ni passe ni avenir, et, ce qui ne nous arrive gue' re, ils jouissent du pre sent. Children have neither past nor future. They live in the present, something which rarely happens to us.
Who shall tempt with wand'ring feet The dark unbottomed infinite abyss And through the palpable obscure find out His uncouth way, or spread his aery flight Upborne with indefatigable wings Over the vast abrupt, ere he arrive The happy isle.john milton
And I will place within them as a guide My umpire conscience, whom if they will hear Light after light well used they shall attain, And to the end persisting, safe arrive.john milton
In order to arrive to a more realistic view of society, it must be recognized that there are individual differences that cannot be eradicated by the most rigid curriculum, and that various individuals will choose different educational curricula if allowed to do so.carl eckart
Elgar is not manic enough to be Russian, not witty or pointilliste enough to be French, not harmonically simple enough to be Italian and not stodgy enough to be German. We arrive at his Englishry by pure elimination.edward elgar
People almost invariably arrive at their beliefs not on the basis of proof but on the basis of what they find attractive.Blaise Pascal
The barber man was small and flash, as barbers mostly are,He wore a strike-your-fancy sash, he smoked a huge cigar;He was a humorist of note and keen at repartee,He laid the odds and kept a "tote", whatever that may be,And when he saw our friend arrive, he whispered, "Here's a lark!Just watch me catch him all alive, this man from Ironbark."andrew paterson
If in other sciences we should arrive at certainty without doubt and truth without error , it behooves us to place the foundations of knowledge in mathematics...roger bacon
Words like "freedom," "justice," "democracy" are not common concepts; on the contrary, they are rare. People are not born knowing what these are. It takes enormous and, above all, individual effort to arrive at the respect for other people that these words imply.james baldwin
The world should forget about cheap oil. [The price] will keep going up and some day arrive at US$100 per barrel.hugo chávez
The highest stage in moral culture at which we can arrive, is when we recognise that we ought to control our thoughts.charles darwin
I see the situation of man in the world of planetary technicity not as an inexitricable and inescapable destiny, but I see the task of thought precisely in this, that within its own limits it helps man as such achieve a satisfactory relationship to the essence of technicity. National Socialism did indeed go in this direction. Those people, however, were far too poorly equipped for thought to arrive at a really explicit relationship to what is happening today and has been underway for the past 300 years.Martin Heidegger
What we are most anxious about is our anxiety itself: the greatest of all sins, Auden learns from Kafka, is impatience and he decides that the hero “is, in fact, one who is not anxious.” But it was inevitable that Auden should arrive at this point. His anxiety is fundamental; and the one thing that anxiety cannot do is to accept itself, to do nothing about itself consequently it admires more than anything else in the world doing nothing, sitting still, waiting.Randall Jarrell
Simultaneous discovery is utterly commonplace, and it was only the rarity of scientists , not the inherent improbability of the phenomenon, that made it remarkable in the past. Scientists on the same road may be expected to arrive at the same destination, often not far apart.peter medawar
Comme on craint peu de choquer la vanité, on arrive fort vite en Italie au ton de l'intimité, et à dire des choses personnelles.stendhal
The Germans themselves I should regard as aboriginal, and not mixed at all with other races through immigration or intercourse. For in former times, it was not by land but on shipboard that those who sought to emigrate would arrive; and the boundless and, so to speak, hostile ocean beyond us,is seldom entered by a sail from our world.Tacitus
However, it is always nice to be expected, and not to arrive.oscar wilde
Though I may not be able to in the present instance to mark the limit at which further improvement will stop, I can very easily mention a point at which it will not arrive.
People ask the way to Cold Mountain Roads do not go through Summer arrives yet the ice has not melted Though the sun is out it’s foggy and dim How did I arrive here? My mind and yours are not the same When our minds are one You will be here too
The regular solids were studied so extensively by the Platonists that they received the name of "Platonic figures." The statement of Proclus that the whole aim of Euclid in writing the Elements was to arrive at the construction of the regular solids, is obviously wrong. The fourteenth and fifteenth books, treating of solid geometry, are apocryphal .
The mystic and the physicist arrive at the same conclusion; one starting from the inner realm, the other from the outer world. The harmony between their views confirms the ancient Indian wisdom that Brahman , the ultimate reality without, is identical to Atman , the reality within.
A person shall arrive on the Day of Judgement and shall be in possession of good deeds in the measure of vastly accumulated clouds or towering mountains. (Witnessing them) he shall ask: ‘Oh My Lord! How can these be for me when I have not performed them?’ God shall reply: ‘This is your knowledge that you had taught and conveyed to the people, and which was acted upon after you had died.’
