„Although we talk so much about coincidence we do not really believe in it. In our heart of hearts we think better of the universe, we are secretly convinced that it is not such a slipshod, haphazard affair, that everything in it has meaning.“

—  J.B. Priestley English writer 1894 - 1984

„I listen to people talking about this universal breakdown we are in and I marvel at their stupid cowardice.“

—  Eugene O'Neill American playwright, and Nobel laureate in Literature 1888 - 1953

John: Act 3, Scene 2.
Days Without End (1933)
Контексте: I listen to people talking about this universal breakdown we are in and I marvel at their stupid cowardice. It is so obvious that they deliberately cheat themselves because their fear of change won't let them face the truth. They don't want to understand what has happened to them. All they want is to start the merry-go-round of blind greed all over again. They no longer know what they want this country to be, what they want it to become, where they want it to go. It has lost all meaning for them except as pig-wallow. And so their lives as citizens have no beginnings, no ends. They have lost the ideal of the Land of the Free. Freedom demands initiative, courage, the need to decide what life must mean to oneself. To them, that is terror. They explain away their spiritual cowardice by whining that the time for individualism is past, when it is their courage to possess their own souls which is dead — and stinking! No, they don't want to be free. Slavery means security — of a kind, the only kind they have courage for. It means they need not to think. They have only to obey orders from owners who are, in turn, their slaves!

„Just as in the retina there are myriads of little nerve endings, we are the nerve endings of the universe.“

—  Alan Watts British philosopher, writer and speaker 1915 - 1973

Источник: Ways of Liberation: Essays and Lectures on the Transformation of Self (1983), p. 25
Контексте: We say in popular speech that we come into this world, but we do nothing of the kind. We come out of it. In the same way as the fruit comes out of the tree, the egg from the chicken, and the baby from the womb, we are symptomatic of the universe. Just as in the retina there are myriads of little nerve endings, we are the nerve endings of the universe.
