"The hidden harmony is better than the obvious one." Heraclitus (6th-5th century B.C.E.) -- "Don't be confused by surfaces; in the depths everything becomes law." Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926) -- "Beyond a certain point there is no return.This point has to be reached." Franz Kafka (1883-1926) -- "Everything in nature contains all the powers of nature."

Novalis (1772-1801) -- "When the last red man has vanished from this earth, and his memory is only a story among whites, these shores will still swarm with the invisible dead of my people. And when your children's children think they are alone in the fields, the forests, the shops, the highways,or the quiet of the woods, they will not be alone." Chief Seattle (1786-1866) -- "When the moon shines in its exceeding beauty, who would care to look at a painted moon?" Shankara (686-718).
