A Quote by Frederick Buechner on gifts, god, grace, life, love, separation, universe, and world

The grace of God means something like: Here is your life. You might never have been, but you are because the party wouldn't have been complete without you. Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don't be afraid. I am with you. Nothing can ever separate us. It's for you I created the universe. I love you. . . . There's only one catch. Like any other gift, the gift of grace can be yours only if you'll reach out and take it. Maybe being able to reach out and take it is a gift too.

A Quote by Sir Francis Bacon on assumptions, caring, company, difficulty, earth, nature, and separation

Over a century after the publication of the Copernican system, one of England's most renowned intellectual luminaries was still unconvinced: "Nevertheless, in the system of Copernicus there are found many and great inconveniences; for both the loading of the earth with a triple motion is very incommodious, and the separation of the sun from the company of the planets, with which it has so many passions in common, is likewise a difficulty, and the introduction of so much immobility in nature, by representing the sun and stars as immovable, especially being of all bodies the highest and most radiant, and making the moon revolve about the earth in an epicycle, and some other assumptions of his, are the speculations of one who cares not what fictions he introduces into nature, provided his calculations answer."

A Quote by Edward de Bono on automobiles, intelligence, people, power, and separation

Many highly intelligent people are poor thinkers. Many people of average intelligence are skilled thinkers. The power of a car is separate from the way the car is driven.

In the field of public education the doctrine of "separate but equal" has no place. Separate educational facilities are inherently unequal.

A Quote by Chuang Chou, a.k.a. Chuang Tzu, Chuang Tse Chuang on separation and taoism

When there is no more separation between 'this' and 'that,' it is called the still-point of the Tao. At the still point in the center of the circle one can see the infinite in all things.

A Quote by Christmas Humphreys on appearance, buddhism, clarity, facts, illusions, life, mankind, separation, and suffering

Life is one, said the Buddha, and the Middle Way to the end of suffering in all its forms is that which leads to the end of the illusion of separation, which enables man to see, as a fact as clear as sunlight, that all mankind, and all other forms in manifestation, are one unit, the infinitely variable appearance of an indivisible Whole.

Christmas Humphreys (1901 - 1983)
