feeling

A Quote by Albert Einstein on feeling, ideas, losing, play, violence, and words

Although words exist for the most part for the transmission of ideas, there are some which produce such violent disturbance in our feelings that the role they play in the transmission of ideas is lost in the background.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on beauty, existence, fear, feeling, knowledge, life, mystery, religion, and wisdom

The insight into the mystery of life, coupled though it be with fear, has also given rise to religion. To know what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty, which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their most primitive forms - this knowledge, this feeling is at the center of true religiousness.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on feeling, goals, humility, nature, purpose, religion, thinking, and understanding

I have never imputed to Nature a purpose or a goal, or anything that could be understood as anthropomorphic. What I see in Nature is a magnificent structure that we can comprehend only very imperfectly, and that must fill a thinking person with a feeling of humility. This is a genuinely religious feeling that has nothing to do with mysticism.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on feeling, laws, religion, science, spirit, superiority, and universe

Everyone who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the Universe - a spirit vastly superior to that of man. . . . In this way the pursuit of science leads to a religious feeling of a special sort, which is indeed quite different from the religiosity of someone more naive.

A Quote by Alan Shepherd on determination, feeling, and safety

It is a very sobering feeling to be up in space and realize that one's safety factor was determined by the lowest bidder on agovernment contract.

A Quote by A. A. Milne on feeling, justice, and worry

When late morning rolls around and you're feeling a bit out of sorts, don't worry; you're probably just a little eleven o'clockish.

A Quote by Abraham Lincoln on appreciation, children, divinity, failure, farewells, feeling, friendship, good, hope, kindness, life, people, success, and trust

My friends: No one, not in my situation, can appreciate my feeling of sadness at this parting. To this place, and the kindness of these people, I owe everything. Here I have lived a quarter of a century, and have passed from a young to an old man. Here my children have been born, and one is buried. I now leave, not knowing when or whether ever I may return, with a task before me greater than that which rested upon Washington. Without the assistance of that Divine Being who ever attended him, I cannot succeed. With that assistance I cannot fail. Trusting in Him who can go with me, and remain with you, and be everywhere for good- let us confidently hope that all will yet be well. To His care commending you, as I hope in your prayers you will commend me, I bid you an affectionate farewell.

A Quote by A. J. Gossip on church, emotion, feeling, imagination, religion, and trouble

A basic trouble is that most Churches limit themselves unnecessarily by addressing their message almost exclusively to those who are open to religious impression through the intellect, whereas . . . there are at least four other gateways - the emotions, the imagination, the aesthetic feeling, and the will - through which they can be reached.

A Quote by A. H. R. Fairchild on ability, culture, day, feeling, ideas, judgment, life, mind, problems, questions, and sympathy

The most distinctive mark of a cultured mind is the ability to take another's point of view; to put one's self in another's place, and see life and its problems from a point of view different from one's own. To be willing to test a new idea; to be able to live on the edge of difference in all matters intellectually; to examine without heat the burning question of the day; to have imaginative sympathy, openness and flexibility of mind, steadiness and poise of feeling, cool calmness of judgment, is to have culture.
