Worlds - Quotes

You`re not ugly
The world`s standards are too high.

Epik High

Darwin`s idea of evolution by natural selection is, in my opinion, the single best idea that anybody has ever had, because in a single bold stroke it unites meaning with matter, two aspects of reality that appear to be worlds apart. On one side, we have the world of our minds and their meanings, our goals, our hopes, and our yearnings, and that most honored - and hackneyed - of all philosophical topics, the Meaning of Life. On the other side, we have galaxies ceaselessly wheeling, planets falling pointlessly into their orbits, lifeless chemical mechanisms doing what physics ordains, all without purpose or reason. Then Darwin comes along and shows us how the former arises from the latter, creating meaning as it goes, a bubble-up vision of the birth of importance to overthrow the trickle-down vision of tradition.

Daniel Dennett

Always remember: In an infinity of worlds, anything is not only possible, it`s mandatory.

Neil Gaiman

Short stories are tiny windows into other worlds and other minds and other dreams. They are journeys you can make to the far side of the universe and still be back in time for dinner.

Neil Gaiman

If you can approach the world's complexities, both its glories and its horrors, with an attitude of humble curiosity, acknowledging that however deeply you have seen, you have only scratched the surface, you will find worlds within worlds, beauties you could not heretofore imagine, and your own mundane preoccupations will shrink to proper size, not all that important in the greater scheme of things.

Daniel Dennett

Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were, but without it we go nowhere.

Carl Sagan

In books I have traveled, not only to other worlds, but into my own.

Anna Quindlen

We should not seek immortality in reproduction. But if you contribute to the world`s culture, if you have a good idea, compose a tune, invent a spark plug, write a poem, it may live on, intact, long after your genes have dissolved in the common pool.

Richard Dawkins

People think that a liar gains a victory over his victim. What I`ve learned is that a lie is an act of self-abdication, because one surrenders one`s reality to the person to whom one lies, making that person one`s master, condemning oneself from then on to faking the sort of reality that person`s view requires to be faked. [...] The man who lies to the world, is the world`s slave from then on.

Ayn Rand

At a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what`s happening to us, and our lives become controlled by fate. That`s the world`s greatest lie.

Paulo Coelho

Wandering between two worlds, one dead,
The other powerless to be born...

Matthew Arnold

Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world`s more full of weeping than you can understand.

William Butler Yeats
