A Quote by unknown on children, day, decisions, doubt, food, heart, jealousy, jobs, laws, life, order, rest, sex, suspicion, and time

You know, everyday I get out of bed and drag myself to the next cup of coffee. I take a sip and the caffeine kicks in. I can focus my eyes again. My brain starts to order the day. I'm up, I'm alive. I'm ready to rock. But the time is coming when I wake up and decide that I'm not getting out of bed. Not for coffee, or food, or sex. If it comes to me, fine. If it won't, fine. No more expectations. The longer I live the less I know. I should know more, I should know the coffee's killing me. You're suspicious of your suspicions? I'm jealous. I'm so jealous. You still have the heart to have doubts. Me? I'm going to lock up a 14 year old kid for what could be the rest of his natural life. I got to do this. This is my job. This is the deal. This is the law. This is my day. I have no doubts or suspicions about it. Heart has nothing to do with it anymore. It's all in the coffee.

A Quote by unknown on art, hope, life, order, and principles

Orlog, The Norns' Chant- In the midst of darkness, light; In the midst of death, life; In the midst of chaos, order. In the midst of order, chaos; In the midst of life, death; In the midst of light, darkness. Thus has it ever been, Thus is it now, and Thus shall it always be.

A Quote by Umberto Eco on behavior, doubt, imagination, mind, order, truth, understanding, universe, and world

"I have never doubted the truth of signs, Adso; they are the only things man has with which to orient himself in the world. What I did not understand is the relation among signs. . . . I behaved stubbornly, pursuing a semblance of order, when I should have known well that there is no order in the universe." "But in imagining an erroneous order you still found something. . . ." "What you say is very fine, Adso, and I thank you. The order that our mind imagines is like a net, or like a ladder, built to attain something. But afterward you must throw the ladder away, because you discover that, even if it was useful, it was meaningless. . . . The only truths that are useful are instruments to be thrown away."

Umberto Eco (1932 -)
