The one-eyed view of our universe says you must not look far afield for problems. Such problems may never arrive. Instead, tend to the wolf within your fences. The packs ranging outside may not even exist.
~ Children of Dune
by Frank Herbert
It is a narrow mind which cannot look at a subject from various points of view.
by George Eliot
"As for a title, a title is really rather a nuisance in these democratic days. As George Harford I had everything I wanted. Now I have merely everything that other people want, which isn't nearly so pleasant."
~ A Woman of No Importance
by Oscar Wilde
A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other.
~ A Tale of Two Cities
by Charles Dickens
"A man's fate is his own temper; and according to that will be his opinion as to the particular manner in which the course of events is regulated. A consistent man believes in Destiny, a capricious man in Chance."
~ Vivian Grey
by Benjamin Disraeli
Think you of the fact that a deaf person cannot hear. Then, what deafness may we not all possess? What senses do we lack that we cannot see and cannot hear another world all around us?
by Frank Herbert
Great and strange ideas transcending experience often have less effect upon men and women than smaller, more tangible considerations.
~ The Invisible Man
by H. G. Wells
Ah, happiness courts the light, so we deem the world is gay; but misery hides aloof, so we deem that misery there is none.
~ Bartleby, the Scrivener
by Herman Melville
Perhaps no man could appreciate his own world until he had seen it from space.
~ A Fall of Moondust
by Arthur C. Clarke
She felt very young; at the same time unspeakably aged. She sliced like a knife through everything; at the same time was outside, looking on. She had a perpetual sense, as she watched the taxi cabs, of being out, out, far out to sea and alone; she always had the feeling that it was very, very dangerous to live even one day.
~ Mrs. Dalloway
by Virginia Woolf
