A Quote by unknown on blindness, darkness, fear, motherhood, vision, world, and path

[The Prajnaparmita, Mother of the Bodisattvas, Mother of the Buddhas . . . ] She is a source of light, and from everyone in the triple world. She removes darkness. . . . She brings light to the blind, She brings light, so that all fear and distress may be forsaken. She has gained the Five Eyes, and She shows the path to all beings. She Herself is an organ of vision.

A Quote by unknown on appreciation, blindness, elderly, kindness, people, and women

A blind man inched his way along the busy street during the rush hour until he felt the curb with his foot. He paused until he sensed a person standing next to him, then he said: "May I accompany you across the street?" "Yes, certainly" came the reply from an elderly woman as she took his arm. The two persons walked safely across the street as cars and pedestrians whirled about them. When they came to the sidewalk on the other side of the street, the blind man turned to thank his escort, but before he could phrase his appreciation she said, "Thanks for the safe crossing. Being blind is made bearable because of people's kindness."

A Quote by unknown on blindness, death, doubt, kiss, silence, and time

Crashing silent, broken down, falling into night Who gave up and who gave in, I'll go without a fight Cut me down or cut me dead, cut me in or out Kiss me blind time after time, take away my doubt.

America is a land of divine destiny. The almighty has every intention of keeping it so. But human blindness, human wickedness, human rebellion against God, can seriously interfere even with God's plan.

A Quote by Thomas Stearns Eliot on blindness and life

At the violet hour, when the eyes and back Turn upward from the desk, when the human engine waits Like a taxi throbbing waiting I Tiresias, though blind, throbbing between two lives.

A Quote by Thornton Niven Wilder on blindness, existence, feeling, happiness, ignorance, mercy, passion, and time

That's what it was to be alive. To move about in a cloud of ignorance; to go up and down trampling on the feelings of those about you. To spend and waste time as though you had a million years. To be always at the mercy of one self-centered passion, or another. Now you know - that's the happy existence you wanted to go back to. Ignorance and blindness.

Thornton Wilder (1897 - 1975)
