„Here is my secret. It is very simple. It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; What is essential is invisible to the eye.“

— Antoine de Saint-Exupéry French writer and aviator 1900 - 1944
Variant translations: Here is my secret. It is very simple: one sees well only with the heart. The essential is invisible to the eyes. The essential things in life are seen not with the eyes, but with the heart.

„The absolutist begins a work, others take it up and try to spread it. Our problems stem from our acceptance of this filthy, rotten system.“

— Dorothy Day Social activist 1897 - 1980
Context: What I want to bring out is how a pebble cast into a pond causes ripples that spread in all directions. And each one of our thoughts, words and deeds is like that. Going to jail for distributing leaflets advocating war tax refusal causes a ripple of thought, of conscience among us all. And of remembrance too. …. There may be ever improving standards of living in the U. S., with every worker eventually owning his own home and driving his own car; but our modern economy is based on preparation for war. … The absolutist begins a work, others take it up and try to spread it. Our problems stem from our acceptance of this filthy, rotten system. As quoted in Women on War : Essential Voices for the Nuclear Age (1988), by Daniela Gioseffi, p. 103 Variant: A pebble cast into a pond causes ripples that spread in all directions. Each one of our thoughts, words and deeds is like that. No one has a right to sit down and feel hopeless. There's too much work to do. As quoted in Singing the Living Tradition (1993) by the Unitarian Universalist Association, p. 560
