Sun

A Quote by Sir Isaac Newton on nature, circulatory, atmosphere, earth, sun, conserve, river, spirit, light, and ether

For nature is a perpetual circulatory worker, generating fluids out of solids, and solids out of fluids, fixed things out of volatile, & volatile out of fixed, subtle out of gross, & gross out of subtle, Some things to ascend & make the upper terrestrial juices, Rivers and the Atmosphere; & by consequence others to descend for a Requital to the former. And as the Earth, so perhaps may the Sun imbibe this spirit copiously to conserve his Shining, & keep the Planets from receding further from him. And they that will, may also suppose, that this Spirit affords or carries with it thither the solary fuel & material Principle of Light; And that the vast ethereal Spaces between us, & the stars are for a sufficient repository for this food of the Sun and Planets. 

Sir Isaac Newton (1642 - 1727)

A Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda on love, god, balance, rhythm, sun, moon, and dance

Love is the song of the soul singing to God.  It is the balanced rhythmic dance of planets - sun and moon lit

A Quote by Chellie Campbell on circumstances, freeway, gears, passion, prosperity, and sun

We recreate the circumstances we can't handle over and over until - finally - we choose a different way to behave that solves the problem...But you can't train yourself to do something new without attracting to yourself the circumstances in which to actually do it...From very humble beginnings, my life has exploded with passion, purpose, and prosperity.  I say yes when I want to and no when I must, without feeling guilty.  I was drifting on a gloomy highway to nowhere, and a book showed me how to shift gears, turn left, and speed up the freeway to success.  Now every day is a glorious ride in the sun.

A Quote by Thom Hartmann on plants, sun, light, sunlight, air, and earth

Many people I've met believe that plants are made up of soil--that the tree outside your house, for example, is mostly made from the soil in which it grew. That's a common mistake. That tree is mostly made up of one of the gases in our air (carbon dioxide) and water (hydrogen and oxygen). Trees are solidified air and sunlight.

A Quote by Thom Hartmann on sunlight, sun, energy, earth, and civilization

It all starts with sunlight.

Sunlight pours energy on the Earth, and the energy gets converted from one form to another, in an endless cycle of life, death, and renewal. Some of the sunlight got stored underground, which has provided us with a tremendous "savings account" of energy on which we can draw. Our civilization has developed a vast thirst for this energy, as we've built billions and billions of machines large and small that all depend on fuel and electricity.

A Quote by Thom Hartmann on sunlight, humanity, life, power, plants, animals, and sun

In a very real sense, we're all made out of sunlight.

Sunlight radiating heat, visible light, and ultraviolet light is the source of almost all life on Earth. Everything you see alive around you is there because a plant somewhere was able to capture sunlight and store it. All animals live from these plants, whether directly (as with herbivores) or indirectly (as with carnivores, which eat the herbivores). This is true of mammals, insects, birds, amphibians, reptiles, and bacteria . . . everything living. Every life-form on the surface of this planet is here because a plant was able to gather sunlight and store it, and something else was able to eat that plant and take that sunlight energy in to power its body.

A Quote by Robert M. Pirsig on confidence, dedication, sun, fanaticism, political, religious, dogma, and goals

"You are never dedicated to something that you have complete confidence in. No one is fanatically shouting that the sun is going to rise tomorrow. They know it's going to rise tomorrow. When people are fanatically dedicated to political or religious faiths or any other kind of dogmas or goals, it's always because these dogmas or goals are in doubt."

A Quote by G. K. Chesterton on philosophy, habit, weak, cosmos, religion, private, sun, and moon

"The modern habit of saying, 'Every man has a different philosophy; this is my philosophy and it suits me'--the habit of saying this is mere weak mindedness.  A cosmic philosophy is not constructed to fit a man; a cosmic philosophy is constructed to fit a cosmos.  A man can no more possess a private religion than he can possess a private sun and moon."
