time

A Quote by Luis Daniel Maldonado Fonken on luis, daniel, maldonado, fonken, time, fractal, event, future, past, today, consciousness, perception, light, emotions, and energy

we live in the past
light is fast, but thoughts and emotions are faster
counsciousness and perception can be really fast
our body, and material world is too slow

today, is a sparkle of an event that did happend long time ago.
we live the past of our consciousness ,in our material world
we live the present of our body
we live the trip of light and perception, a continues change
our future have been  decided  already, right now

A Quote by Charles A. Lindbergh on awareness, body, consciousness, earth, light, moon, solitude, space, stars, time, and universe

On a long flight, after periods of crisis and many hours of fatigue, mind and body may become disunited until at times they seem completely different elements, as though the body were only a home with which the mind has been associated but by no means bound.  Consciousness grows independent of the ordinary senses.  You see without assistance from the eyes, over distances beyond the visual horizon.  There are moments when existence appears independent even of the mind.  The importance of physical desire and immediate surroundings is submerged in the apprehension of universal values.

For unmeasurable periods, I seem divorced from my body, as though I were an awareness spreading out through space, over the earth and into the heavens, unhampered by time or substance, free from the gravitation that binds to heavy human problems of the world.  My body requires no attention.  It's not hungry.  It's neither warm or cold.  It's resigned to being left undisturbed.  Why have I troubled to bring it here?  I might better have left it back at Long Island or St. Louis, while the weightless element that has lived within it flashes through the skies and views the planet.  This essential consciousness needs no body for its travels.  It needs no plane, no engine, no instruments, only the release from flesh which circumstances I've gone through make possible.


Then what am I - the body substance which I can see with my eyes and feel with my hands?  Or am I this realization, this greater understanding which dwells within it, yet expands through the universe outside; a part of all existence, powerless but without need for power; immersed in solitude, yet in contact with all creation?  There are moments when the two appear inseparable, and others when they could be cut apart by the merest flash of light.


While my hand is on the stick, my feet on the rudder, and my eyes on the compass, this consciousness, like a winged messenger, goes out to visit the waves below, testing the warmth of water, the speed of wind, the thickness of intervening clouds.  It goes north to the glacial coasts of Greenland, over the horizon to the edge of dawn, ahead to Ireland, England, and the continent of Europe, away through space to the moon and stars, always returning, unwillingly, to the mortal duty of seeing that the limbs and muscles have attended their routine while it was gone.

A Quote by Boris Leonidovich Pasternak on light, spirit, and time

Even so, one step from my grave,
I believe that cruelty, spite,
The powers of darkness will in time
Be crushed by the spirit of light.

A Quote by Herman Melville on life, time, and universe

There are certain queer times and occasions in this strange mixed affair we call life when a man takes this whole universe for a vast practical joke, though the wit thereof he but dimly discerns, and more than suspects that the joke is at nobody's expense but his own.

I am an ark in the swift flood of time, and my companions, a fellowship.
Who throws in with us sails into light.

Take these chances
Place them in a box until a quieter time
Lights down, you up and die

A Quote by Edwin Percy Whipple on books, light, sea, and time

Books, - lighthouses erected in the great sea of time, - books, the precious depositories of the thoughts and creations of genius, - books, by whose sorcery times past become time present, and the whole pageantry of the world's history moves in solemn procession before our eyes; - these were to visit the firesides of the humble, and lavish the treasures of the intellect upon the poor.

A Quote by Crowfoot on life, time, and winter

What is life?
It is the flash of a firefly in the night;
It is the breath of a buffalo in the winter time;
It is the little shadow which runs across the grass
And loses itself in the sunset.

A Quote by Ludwig Josef Johann Wittgenstein on eternity, infinity, life, and time

If we take eternity to mean not infinite temporal duration but timelessness, then eternal life belongs to those who live in the present.

A Quote by Mary Catherine Bateson on ancestors, illusion, life, place, and time

In many ways, constancy is an illusion.  After all, our ancestors were immigrants, many of them moving on every few years; today we are migrants in time.  Unless teachers can hold up a model of lifelong learning and adaptation, graduates are likely to find themselves trapped into obsolescence as the world changes around them.  Of any stopping place in life, it is good to ask whether it will be a good place from which to go on as well as a good place to remain.
