A Quote by Wendell Berry on food, eating, pleasure, ignorance, connection, world, experience, gratitude, mystery, and power

Eating with the fullest pleasure - pleasure, that is, that does not depend on ignorance - is perhaps the profoundest enactment of our connection with the world. In this pleasure we experience and celebrate our dependence and our gratitude, for we are living from mystery, from creatures we did not make and powers we cannot comprehend.

Wendell Berry (1934 -)

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on connection, nature, and space

Shakespeare possesses the power of subordinating nature for the purposes of expression, beyond all poets.  His imperial muse tosses the creation like a bauble from hand to hand, and uses it to embody any caprice of thought that is uppermost in his mind.  The remotest spaces of nature are visited, and the farthest sundered things are brought together, by subtle spiritual connection.  We are made aware that magnitude of material things is relative, and all objects shrink and expand to serve the passion of the poet.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)

A Quote by Lakota Seer on life, spiritual journey, and connection

We are earth people on a spiritual journey to the stars. Our quest, our earth walk, is to look within, to know who we are, to see that we are connected to all things, that there is no separation, only in the mind.

A Quote by Abraham H. Maslow on connection, people, and self

Self-actualizing people have a deep feeling of identification, sympathy, and affection for human beings in general.  They feel kinship and connection, as if all people were members of a single family.

A Quote by Peter Gabriel on connection and life

To keeping silence I resigned
My friends would think I was a nut
Turning water into wine
Open doors would soon be shut
So I went from day to day
Though my life was in a rut
'Til I thought of what I'd say
Which connection I should cut

Peter Gabriel

Every time you opt in to kindness
Make one connection, used to divide us
It echoes all over the world

A Quote by Bob Dylan on connection and dream

Wasn't making any great connection
Wasn't falling for any intricate scheme
Nothing that would pass inspection
Just thinking of a series of dreams
