It used to be said, that in places like this, nature eventually failed to support man, the truth is exactly the reverse, here man failed to support nature. Ten thousand years ago man regarded the natural world as divine, but as he domesticated animals and plants so nature lost some of its mystery and appeared to be little more than a larder that could be raided with impunity.david attenborough
But this same process of the old teaching the young can also cause errors and false conclusions to accumulate with the passage of time. One should therefore study ancient writings, not so much in the hope of finding lost wisdom as in the hope of locating the origin of errors that have been, and still are, accepted truths.carl eckart
Experience comprises illusions lost, rather than wisdom gained.joseph roux

We might win the first battle for Japan, but we won't win the second. The war is lost to us. Therefore we must forget about 'face,' we must surrender as quickly as we can, and we must begin to consider at once how best to preserve our country.mitsumasa yonai

He found oddly little regret in his heart for his own lost life. He'd seen more of the world than most men ever did, and he'd had his chances, though the gods knew he'd made little enough of them.

But in fact the way most fortunes are lost is not through excessive expenditure, but through bad investments.paul graham
The strongest natures, when they are influenced, submit the most unreservedly: it is perhaps a sign of their strength. But that Thoreau lost any of his own force in the process, or took on permanently any colours not natural to himself the readers of his books will certainly deny. The Transcendentalist movement, like most movements of vigour, represented the effort of one or two remarkable people to shake off the old clothes which had become uncomfortable to them and fit themselves more closely to what now appeared to them to be the realities.virginia woolf
It is only through a burning zeal for the salvation of the lost a zeal glowing in the heart, and flashing out in the look and action and utterance that the confidence of unbelief can be overcome, and the heedless travelers of the broad way won to the path of life and happiness.

We have really lost in our society the sense of the sacredness of life.
Without Jefferson the new nation might have lost its soul. Without Hamilton it would assuredly have been killed in body.james truslow adams
Atheism, Gay Marriage, Intermarriage, Non-Kosher Food, Partial-Birth Abortion - all of these are legitimate mainstream ideas within Reform 'Judaism.' Judaism has lost more Jews through the efforts of Reform than through Hitler's gas ovens.
Knowledge is discovered, when ignorance is lost.
And that is why I am anathema to certain kinds of Australian intellectual . I've lost interest in the theatre because you can't get what you want ever.
