A Quote by Paracelsus on creativity, thoughts, energy, and birth

Thoughts give birth to a creative force that is neither elemental nor sidereal. Thoughts create a new heaven, a new firmament, a new source of energy, from which new arts flow. When a man undertakes to create something, he establishes a new heaven.

Paracelsus (1493 - 1541)

A Quote by Sol Luckman on consciousness, creation, creativity, manifestation, reality, biology, the secret, thought, mind, word, duality, division, fragmentation, fragmentary body, sound, intention, universe, birth, and cosmology

If consciousness creates, and reality including biology is a thought-form, and in the beginning was indeed the Word, then it is critical we realize that a divided consciousness employing some type of divisive sound combined with a separatist intention gave birth to our dualistic universe.

A Quote by Alexander Laing on birth, hope, revolution, change, and power

For My Grandson

Your blood runs muddled,
My polyglot,
From Dutch and English
And Welsh and Scot;
But to honor you
In this year of shame,
We have named you DAVID
A Jewish name.
Upon your hand--
A scant inch long--
We lay the sense
Of your brother’s wrong.
To this frail case
Of gristle and skin
We trust the fortunes
of all your kin--
Your Negro brother,
Your brother the Jew--
Of all who suffer
From being few.

In cruel times
For a child to share
Your mother has dropped you
Well aware
That flesh must carry
The mind’s high stake,
Since the world we have
Is the world we make.

Let nothing rob you
Of discontent.
Your thin, first protest
Was early spent--
A cradle tempest,
Not loud, not long--
But your puny anger
Will yet be strong;
And we bid you nurse it,
While we nurse you,
To turn on Gentiles
Who hate the Jew,
On gentlemen
Who in pride of race
Would burn black problems
They dare not face.
Poor and lucky,
We can ill afford
A silver spoon
Or a silver cord;
But your name is David--
We bring you, instead,
One smooth flat stone
From the clean brook bed,
And with this for a birthright
May you, at length,
Have little of comfort
Much of strength,
We could wish you homeless
Under a ledge
With a mind that burns
Through the skull’s thin edge--
Better so,
In the steely rain,
Than plump and cozy
In belly and brain.

For there’s work to be done
And all’s not well.
The giants we fostered
Are yours to fell.
The peace we squandered
Is yours to win,
By anger flashed outward
And hate held in.
Let these be single
When each is great;
Anger blown clear
Of the coals of hate--
Keep hate for ideas,
Anger for men,
Now the fools of evil
Are loose again.
And when metals cancel
And wits lock fast
One smooth flat stone
Can win at the last,
Through fear and the will
To master fear
With the sling of David.

The giants are here.

A Quote by Gaston Bachelard on reverie, substance, birth, life, and spirituality

The spoken reverie of substances calls matter to birth, to life, to spirituality.

A Quote by unknown on birth, birth control, motherhood, and children

When motherhood becomes the fruit of a deep yearning, not the result of ignorance or accident, its children will become the foundation of a new race.

A Quote by Elayne Boosler on birth, pool, delivery, pregnancy, and obstetrician

People are giving birth underwater now. They say it's less traumatic for the baby because it's in water. But certainly more traumatic for the other people in the pool.

A Quote by Sojourner Truth on aint i a woman, woman, female, christ, god, rights, race, ethnicty, plow, plant, born, birth, children, slavery, and civil war

Well, children, where there is so much racket there must be something out of kilter. I think that 'twixt the negroes of the South and the women at the North, all talking about rights, the white men will be in a fix pretty soon. But what's all this here talking about?

That man over there says that women need to be helped into carriages, and lifted over ditches, and to have the best place everywhere. Nobody ever helps me into carriages, or over mud-puddles, or gives me any best place! And ain't I a woman? Look at me! Look at my arm! I have ploughed and planted, and gathered into barns, and no man could head me! And ain't I a woman? I could work as much and eat as much as a man - when I could get it - and bear the lash as well! And ain't I a woman? I have borne thirteen children, and seen most all sold off to slavery, and when I cried out with my mother's grief, none but Jesus heard me! And ain't I a woman?

Then they talk about this thing in the head; what's this they call it? [member of audience whispers, "intellect"] That's it, honey. What's that got to do with women's rights or negroes' rights? If my cup won't hold but a pint, and yours holds a quart, wouldn't you be mean not to let me have my little half measure full?

Then that little man in black there, he says women can't have as much rights as men, 'cause Christ wasn't a woman! Where did your Christ come from? Where did your Christ come from? From God and a woman! Man had nothing to do with Him.

If the first woman God ever made was strong enough to turn the world upside down all alone, these women together ought to be able to turn it back , and get it right side up again! And now they is asking to do it, the men better let them.

Obliged to you for hearing me, and now old Sojourner ain't got nothing more to say.

A Quote by Tracy Phaup on purpose, self-expression, suffering, mourning, grief, grieving, frustrating, birth, and contribution

I suspect that if we could sum up in a single sentence what our purpose in life would be - it's that we were born to be "fully Self-expressive".  And we could put a big chunk of the world's suffering under the categories of "suffering because we know that we're not expressing our Selves fully, or mourning that we don't even know who that is, or that we lost touch with that Self somewhere along the way".  It's incredibly frustrating to know that you have something inside of you like that and to not be quite reaching the point of giving birth to it - to be bringing it out into the world.
