A Quote by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin on limitation, duty, universe, manifestation, and creation

It is our duty  as men and women  to behave as though limits to our ability do not exist. We are collaborators in creation of the Universe.

A Quote by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin on god, mind, rest, and world

The end of the world: the wholesale internal introversion upon itself of the noosphere, which has simultaneously reached the uttermost limit of its complexity and its centrality . . . the overthrow of equilibrium, detaching the mind, furfilled at last, from its material matrix, so that it will henceforth rest with all its weight on God-Omega . . . critical point simultaneously of emergence and emersion, of maturation and evasion.

A Quote by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin on force, impossibility, love, and world

If there were no internal propensity to unite, even at a prodigiously rudimentary level-indeed in the molecule itself - it would be physically impossible for love to appear higher up, with us, in "hominized'' form. . . . Driven by the forces of love, the fragments of the world seek each other so that the world may come into being.

A Quote by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin on achievement, day, fulfillment, life, love, magic, and world

Love alone is capable of uniting living beings in such a way as to complete and fulfill them, for it alone takes them and joins them by what is deepest in themselves. . . . Does not love every instant achieve all around us, in the couple or the team, the magic feat . . . of "personalizing" by totalizing? And if that is what it can achieve daily on a small scale, why should it not repeat this one day on world-wide dimensions?

A Quote by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin on belief and reality

We have only to believe. And the more threatening and irreducible reality appears, the more firmly and desperately must we believe. Then, little by little, we shall see the universal horror unbend, and then smile upon us, and then take us in its more human arms.
