Until we accept the fact that life itself is founded in mystery, we shall learn nothing.
Your heart's desire is to be told some mystery. The mystery is that there is no mystery.

Blood Meridian, or the Evening Redness in the West
Mystery has its own mysteries, and there are gods above gods. We have ours, they have theirs. That is what's known as infinity
The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science
That blessed mood,
In which the burden of the mystery,
In which the heavy and the weary weight
Of all this unintelligible world,
Is lightened.

Lines completed a few miles above Tintern Abbey
The uncontrollable mystery on the bestial floor.

Responsibilities. The Magi


On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
