A Quote by Eric Dransfeldt on despair, fate, future, humility, life, salvation, soul, and universe

Life is but an unfair circle, intertwined among the ruins of my salvation as a soul of this universe. My humble despair deserves no such fate; perhaps sometime in the near distant future I may live to say 'this really sucks!'"

A Quote by Edward Morgan "E. M." Forster on failure, fighting, men, power, success, and universe

Failure or success seem to have been allotted to men by their stars. But they retain the power of wriggling, of fighting with their star or against it, and in the whole universe the only really interesting movement is this wriggle.

A Quote by Edward Morgan "E. M." Forster on art, belief, order, and universe

Works of art, in my opinion, are the only objects in the material universe to possess internal order, and that is why, though I don't believe that only art matters, I do believe in Art for Art's sake.

A Quote by Dr. Rory Coker on existence, facts, justice, and universe

[They] like to pretend they live in a universe where there are no facts, everything is a matter of opinion, and all opinions are equally valid. And, of course, they do live in just such a universe. Unfortunately, it exists entirely inside their own poorly-stocked minds.

Education is the process by which the individual relates himself to the universe, gives himself citizenship in the changing world, shares the race's mind and enfranchises his own soul.

A Quote by Douglas Noel Adams on theory and universe

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
