A Quote by Paulo Coelho on life, living, intuition, connection, destiny, life path, soul, and universal

The boy was beginning to understand that intuition is really a sudden immersion of the soul into the universal current of life, where the histories of all people are connected, and we able to know everything, because it's all written there.

A Quote by Steven Paul (Steve) Jobs on time, life, dogma, thinking, opinions, inner voice, courage, heart, and intuition

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

Steve Jobs (1955 -)

A Quote by unknown on acceptance, belief, children, commitment, credulity, faith, god, intuition, lies, mistakes, quality, simplicity, spirit, thinking, trust, and vision

Faith is sometimes equated with credulity, but it can be so equated only when the profound mistake is made of thinking of faith as primarily a matter of intellectual assent. As the New Testament uses the word, faith is trust, acceptance, commitment, vision. It is not a belief in this or that creed, it is a quality which lies rather in the realm of intuition than the intellect. Faith has indeed an element of true simplicity; it is one of the qualities - perhaps the fundamental quality - of the child-like spirit without which no man can enter the Kingdom of God.

A Quote by Ray J. Solomonoff on ideas, intuition, and yielding

The strongest evidence that we can obtain for the validity of a proposed induction method, is that it yields results that are in accord with intuitive evaluations in many different kinds of situations in which we have strong intuitive ideas.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on duty, ideas, imagination, intelligence, intuition, life, senses, thought, and understanding

A man cannot utter two or three sentences without disclosing to intelligent ears precisely where he stands in life and thought, whether in the kingdom of the senses and the understanding, or in that of ideas and imagination, or in the realm of intuitions and duty.

A Quote by Plotinus on intuition, knowledge, and science

Knowledge has three degrees-opinion, science, illumination. The means or instrument of the first is sense; of the second, dialectic; of the third, intuition.

A Quote by Margery Allingham on intuition, logic, and quiet

He did not arrive at this conclusion by the decent process of quiet, logical deduction, nor yet by the blinding flash of glorious intuition, but by the shoddy, untidy process halfway between the two by which one usually gets to know things.

Margery Allingham (1904 - 1966)
