A Quote by Mark Hathaway on tao, wisdom, cosmos, harmony, and right relationship

The Tao of Liberation is a search for wisdom, the wisdom needed to effect profound transformations in our world. We have chosen to describe this wisdom using the ancient Chinese word Tao, meaning a way or path leading to harmony, peace, and right relationship. The Tao can be understood as a principle of order that constitutes the common ground of the cosmos; it is both the way that the universe works and the fl owing cosmic structure that cannot be described, only tasted. The Tao is the wisdom that lies at the very heart of the universe, encapsulating the essence of its purpose and direction.

A Quote by Carl Edward Sagan on carl sagan, cosmos, and life

The beauty of a living thing is not the atoms that go into it but the way the atoms are put together.  The cosmos is also within us.  We're made of star stuff, we are a way for the cosmos to know itself.

Carl Sagan (1934 - 1996)

A Quote by Carl Edward Sagan on cosmos, universe, and the world

Those afraid of the universe as it really is, those who pretend to nonexistent knowledge and envision a Cosmos centered on human beings will prefer the fleeting comforts of superstition. They avoid rather than confront the world. But those with the courage to explore the weave and structure of the Cosmos, even where it differs profoundly from their wishes and prejudices, will penetrate its deepest mysteries.

Carl Sagan (1934 - 1996)

A Quote by Erwin Schroedinger on reality, cosmos, universe, self, spirituality, enlightnment, experience, and life

Inconceivable as it seems to ordinary reason - you and all other conscious beings as such - are all in all. Hence this life of yours which you are living is not merely a piece of the entire existence, but is in a certain sense the whole.

Thus you can throw yourself flat on the ground, stretched out upon mother earth, with the certain conviction that you are one with her and she with you.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on world, cosmos, reality, emotions, life, and experience

Man tries to make for himself in the fashion that suits him best a simplified and intelligible picture of the world; he then tries to some extent to substitute this cosmos of his for the world of experience, and thus to overcome it. This is what the painter, the poet, the speculative philosopher, and the natural scientists do, each in his own fashion. Each makes this cosmos and its construction the pivot of his emotional life, in order to find in this way peace and security which he can not find in the narrow whirlpool of personal experience.

A Quote by G. K. Chesterton on philosophy, habit, weak, cosmos, religion, private, sun, and moon

"The modern habit of saying, 'Every man has a different philosophy; this is my philosophy and it suits me'--the habit of saying this is mere weak mindedness.  A cosmic philosophy is not constructed to fit a man; a cosmic philosophy is constructed to fit a cosmos.  A man can no more possess a private religion than he can possess a private sun and moon."

G. K. Chesterton

A Quote by Giuseppe Peano on cosmos, universe, infinity, numbers, and math

No number before zero. The numbers may go on forever, but like the cosmos,~ they have a beginning.
