A Quote by Albert Einstein on mystic, reality, science, wisdom, and wonder

The most beautiful and most profound emotion we can experience is the sensation of the mystical.  It is the sower of all true science.  He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead.  To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their most primitive forms - this knowledge, this feeling, is at the center of true religiousness.

Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

A Quote by Oscar Fingall O'Flahertie Wills Wilde on destiny, omen, and wisdom

There is no such thing such as an omen.  Destiny does not
send us heralds.  She is too wise or too cruel for that.

A Quote by Brenda Ueland on listening, creativity, laughter, wisdom, life, and attention

Listening is a magnetic and strange thing, a creative force...When we are listened to, it creates us, makes us unfold and expand. Ideas actually begin to grow within us and come to life...When we listen to people there is an alternating current, and this recharges us so that we never get tired of each other...and it is this little creative fountain inside us that begins to spring and cast up new thoughts and unexpected laughter and wisdom. ...Well, it is when people really listen to us, with quiet facinated attention, that the little fountain begins to work again, to accelerate in the most surprising way.
