A Quote by Alexander Pope on bliss, death, hope, mortality, and pain

Vital spark of heav'nly flame! Quit, oh quit, this mortal frame: Trembling, hoping, ling'ring, flying, Oh the pain, the bliss of dying!

A Quote by Albert Einstein on admiration, art, hope, science, wishes, and world

Where the world ceases to be the scene of our personal hopes and wishes, where we face it as free beings admiring, asking and observing, there we enter the realm of Art and Science.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on behavior, death, education, ethics, fear, hope, punishment, religion, reward, and sympathy

A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.

A Quote by Albert Camus on despair, hope, lies, life, understanding, and words

There are some words that I have never really understood, such as sin. . . . For if there is sin against life, it lies perhaps less in despairing of it than in hoping for another life and evading the implacable grandeur of the one we have.

A Quote by Albert Camus on blindness, brothers, day, execution, happiness, hope, indifference, time, wishes, and world

As if that blind rage had washed me clean, rid me of hope; for the first time, in that night alive with signs and stars, I opened myself to the gentle indifference of the world. Finding it so much like myself - so like a brother, really - I felt that I had been happy and that I was happy again. For everything to be consummated, for me to feel less alone, I had only to wish that there be a large crowd of spectators the day of my execution and that they greet me with cries of hate.

A Quote by Akhnaton [Ikhnaton or Akhenaton] on boldness, delay, god, heart, hope, punishment, and secrets

O think not, bold man, because thy punishment is delayed, that the arm of God is weakened; neither flatter thyself with hopes that He winketh at thy doings. His eye pierceth the secrets of every heart, and He remembereth them for ever...
