A Quote by Stuart Kauffman on achievement, beauty, death, life, secrets, simplicity, and world

Life emerged, I suggest, not simple, but complex and whole, and has remained complex and whole ever since - not because of a mysterious élan vital, but thanks to the simple, profound transformation of dead molecules into an organization by which each molecule's formation is catalyzed by some other molecule in the organization. The secret of life, the wellspring of reproduction, is not to be found in the beauty of Watson-Crick pairing, but in the achievement of collective catalytic closure. So, in another sense, life - complex, whole, emergent - is simple after all, a natural outgrowth of the world in which we live.

A Quote by Sir Walter Scott on body, death, desires, fantasy, gifts, god, heart, heaven, love, mind, secrets, soul, sympathy, and wishes

True love 's the gift which God has given To man alone beneath the heaven: It is not fantasy's hot fire, Whose wishes soon as granted fly; It liveth not in fierce desire, With dead desire it doth not die; It is the secret sympathy, The silver link, the silken tie, Which heart to heart and mind to mind In body and in soul can bind.

Sir Walter Scott (1771 - 1832)

A Quote by Sidney A. Weltmer on exercise, hope, love, money, reward, secrets, skill, success, time, and work

The secret of the true love of work is the hope of success in that work; not for the money reward, for the time spent, or for the skill exercised, but for the successful result in the accomplishment of the work itself.

A Quote by Lucius Annaeus Seneca on god, life, neighbors, secrets, and world

I will govern my life and thoughts as if the whole world were to see the one and to read the other, for what does it signify to make anything a secret to my neighbor, when to God, who is the searcher of our hearts, all our privacies are open?

Seneca (4 BC - 65 AD)

A Quote by Lucius Annaeus Seneca on charm, conversation, justice, kindness, love, and secrets

Conversation has a kind of charm about it, an insinuating and insidious something that elicits secrets from us just like love or liquor.
