The feet of people walking home

The feet of people walking home
With gayer sandals go—
The Crocus— til she rises
The Vassal of the snow—
The lips at Hallelujah
Long years of practise bore
Til bye and bye these Bargemen
Walked singing on the shore.

Pearls are the Diver's farthings
Extorted from the Sea—
Pinions— the Seraph's wagon
Pedestrian once— as we—
Night is the morning's Canvas
Larceny— legacy—
Death, but our rapt attention
To Immortality.

My figures fail to tell me
How far the Village lies—
Whose peasants are the Angels—
Whose Cantons dot the skies—
My Classics veil their faces—
My faith that Dark adores—
Which from its solemn abbeys
Such ressurection pours.

When I heard the comment about how Everyone is learning to get good grades, I got goosebumps. I Have had the exact same thoughts…even the comment about Europe. I have said this over and over to so many people, and they look at me like i’m nuts. This is the reason I left school.

You ever feel such a deep connection to someone it makes your stomach hurt?

“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.”

 “I never think of the future. It comes soon enough.”

“Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.”

“God does not play dice with the universe.”

“Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age 18.”

“Where the world ceases to be the scene of our personal hopes and wishes, where we face it as free beings admiring, asking and observing, there we enter the realm of Art and Science.”

“Things should be made as simple as possible, but not any simpler.”

“Watch the stars, and from them learn. To the Master’s honor all must turn, each in its track, without a sound, forever tracing Newton’s ground.”

“Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.”

“Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former.”

“Equations are more important to me, because politics is for the present, but an equation is something for eternity.”

“Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them.”

“Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts.”

“Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through understanding.”

“Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.”

“The only real valuable thing is intuition.”

“A person starts to live when he can live outside himself.”

“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”

“The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.”

“The whole of science is nothing more than a refinement of everyday thinking.”

“Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he learned in school.”

“The fear of death is the most unjustified of all fears, for there’s no risk of accident for someone who’s dead.”

“No, this trick won’t work…How on earth are you ever going to explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love?”

“One had to cram all this stuff into one’s mind for the examinations, whether one liked it or not. This coercion had such a deterring effect on me that, after I had passed the final examination, I found the consideration of any scientific problems distasteful to me for an entire year.”

“He who joyfully marches to music rank and file, has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would surely suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action. It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder.”

“Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts.” (Sign hanging in Einstein’s office at Princeton)

“A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest… a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
