A Quote by Archibald MacLeish on brothers, earth, eternity, and silence

To see the earth as we now see it, small and beautiful in that eternal silence where it floats, is to see ourselves as riders on the earth together, brothers on that bright loveliness in the unending night - brothers who see now they are truly brothers.

Archibald MacLeish (1892 - 1982)

A Quote by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov on earth, evil, good, justice, life, and play

To a chemist there is nothing impure on earth. The writer should be just as objective as the chemist; he should liberate himself from everyday subjectivity and acknowledge that manure piles play a highly respectable role in the landscape and that evil passions are every bit as much a part of life as good ones.

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860 - 1904)

Ever consider what they must think of us? I mean, here we come back from a grocery store with the most amazing haul- chicken, pork, half cow. They must think we're the greatest hunters on earth!

A Quote by Madame Anne Louise Germaine de Staël on earth, heaven, hope, imagination, immortality, love, and nature

When at eve, at the bounding of the landscape, the heavens appear to recline so slowly on the earth, imagination pictures beyond the horizon an asylum of hope, - a native land of love; and nature seems silently to repeat that man is immortal.

Anne Louise Germaine de Stael (1766 - 1817)

A Quote by Analee Skarin on achievement, destiny, divinity, earth, fulfillment, honor, individuality, life, people, soul, and women

There is a glorious pattern for every man's life, an individual, perfect patter. No two people are alike . . . No two leaves are alike-no two snowstorms-no two sets of fingerprints. No two lives are alike, yet each life holds a divine pattern of unfoldment, a great and holy destiny, rich in achievement and honor. As you live true to the pattern of yourself, that deep, inner self, you will unfold as perfect, as joyous, as naturally beautiful as the tree will reach its full measure of fulfillment. No one can keep you from reaching your highest destiny if you will follow your own true pattern of life. No one can live your life for you, for only you hold the key to your own pattern of sublime, glorious, complete fulfillment. Such is the destiny written in the soul of every man and woman who comes to earth. None are without it, that completely individual highway of full expression and glorious achievement.

A Quote by Ambrose Gwinett Bierce on earth, genius, god, manners, masculinity, originality, and women

Women of genius commonly have masculine faces, figures and manners. In transplanting brains to an alien soil God leaves a little of the original earth clinging to the roots.

A Quote by Alvin R. Dyer on conquest, day, earth, education, god, newspapers, science, scientists, and trust

When the Russians succeeded in putting the first satellite into orbit, one of their scientists is reported to have said, "Now that we have conquered space, our next conquest is that of man." An American anthropologist, Leslie A. White, of the University of Michigan, is reported in a Detroit newspaper as saying, "A cultural system which can launch earth satellites can dispense with Gods entirely." This is a great day for the false scientist-they who have left God out of their education. Of these the Apostle Paul even in his day warned his weakening convert, Timothy, to beware of: O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called. (I Timothy 6 :20.)

A Quote by Alvin R. Dyer on appreciation, atoms, deception, discovery, earth, facts, god, greatness, knowledge, life, philosophy, power, science, scientists, spirit, spirituality, truth, understanding, universe, and youth

The real scientist will realize that TRUTH has many avenues of approach to its many phases, and that spiritual truths are to be sought after even more determinedly than others which have to do with this life and earth only. It must be recognized when they do this that spiritual truths are not found on the drawing board or in test tubes. The pursuit of such prescribes that the things of man are understood by the spirit and perceptions of man while the things of God are made known by the revelations of God. Man in and of himself cannot find them out. Yet they are obtained by search-the search for truth, yes, spiritual truth. The youth in particular must not be deceived by the elementary discoveries that have been made by science in many fields. Rockets, missiles and their great potentiality are amazing to us all, but very minute when compared to the majesty of the universe. The real scientist would probably be the first to acknowledge the minor things that have been done thus far as a result of the discovery of atomic and hydrogen power. The fact that they have been able to draw on materials and sources of things already there is perhaps the best evidence of the greatness of God and the virtual nothingness of man thus far exhibited in his pursuits of knowledge. When we attempt to develop a true philosophy of life, one of the first things to do is to gain a full appreciation and understanding of God.
