A Quote by George Washington Carver on love and secrets

Anything will give up its secrets if you love it enough. Not only have I found that when I talk to the little flower or to the little peanut they will give up their secrets, but I have found that when I silently commune with people they give up their secrets also  if you love them enough.

A Quote by Ayn Rand on truth, lies, and secrets

I think it's funny.  There was a time when men were afraid that somebody would reveal some secret of theirs that was unknown to their fellows.  Nowadays, they're afraid that somebody will name what everybody knows.  Have you practical people ever thought that that's all it would take to blast your whole, big, complex structure, with all your laws and guns --- just somebody naming the exact nature of what you're doing?

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on sleep, secrets, world, and dancing

Daylight, full of small dancing particles
and the one great turning, our souls
are dancing with you, without feet, they dance.
Can you see them when I whisper in your ear?

All day and night, music,
a quiet, bright
reedsong. If it
fades, we fade.

Mevlana Rumi (1207 - 1273)

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on desires, earth, garden, heart, prophets, secrets, and thought

When your heart becomes the grave of your secrets, that desire of yours will be gained more quickly. The prophet said that anyone who keeps secret his inmost thought will soon attain the object of his desire. When seeds are buried in the earth, their inward secrets become the flourishing garden.

A Quote by Carlos Castaneda on mystery, secrets, understanding, and world

The world is incomprehensible. We won't ever understand it; we won't ever unravel its secrets. Thus we must treat the world as it is: a sheer mystery.
