„I am no lover of disorder and doubt as such. Rather do I fear to lose truth by this pretension to possess it already wholly.“

—  William James, книга The Varieties of Religious Experience

Lectures XIV and XV, "The Value of Saintliness"

Контексте: I am well aware of how anarchic much of what I say may sound. Expressing myself thus abstractly and briefly, I may seem to despair of the very notion of truth. But I beseech you to reserve your judgment until we see it applied to the details which lie before us. I do indeed disbelieve that we or any other mortal men can attain on a given day to absolutely incorrigible and unimprovable truth about such matters of fact as those with which religions deal. But I reject this dogmatic ideal not out of a perverse delight in intellectual instability. I am no lover of disorder and doubt as such. Rather do I fear to lose truth by this pretension to possess it already wholly.

„p>When I was small,
Nostalgia was a tiny postage stamp,
I, on this side,
My mother, on the other.Later on,
Nostalgia was a low tomb,
I, outside.
My mother, inside.And now,
Nostalgia is the coastline, a shallow strait.
I, on this side,
The mainland, on the other.“

—  Yu Kwang-chung Taiwanese poet 1928 - 2017

Добавить примечание: (zh) 小时候,乡愁是一枚小小的邮票,我在这头,母亲在那头。
长大后,乡愁是一张窄窄的船票, 我在这头,新娘在那头。
后来啊,乡愁是一方矮矮的坟墓,我在外头,母亲在里头。
而现在,乡愁是一湾浅浅的海峡,我在这头,大陆在那头。

„Man should possess an infinite appetite for life. It should be self-evident to him, all the time, that life is superb, glorious, endlessly rich, infinitely desirable.“

—  Colin Wilson, книга The Philosopher's Stone

Источник: The Philosopher's Stone (1969), p. 317-318
Контексте: Man should possess an infinite appetite for life. It should be self-evident to him, all the time, that life is superb, glorious, endlessly rich, infinitely desirable. At present, because he is in a midway position between the brute and the truly human, he is always getting bored, depressed, weary of life. He has become so top-heavy with civilisation that he cannot contact the springs of pure vitality. Control of the prefrontal cortex will change all of this. He will cease to cast nostalgic glances towards the womb, for he will realise that death is no escape. Man is a creature of life and the daylight; his destiny lies in total objectivity.

Your coats wrapped,
Your hips a possession
Your shoes arched
Your walk is sharp
Your breasts
Pertain to lingerie“
