Quotes

“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.” ~ Nietzsche

“We are apart of this universe, we are in this universe, but perhaps more importantly than both of those things, is that the universe is in us.” ~ Neil DeGrasse Tyson

“Nature loves courage. You make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles. Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up. This is the trick. This is what all these teachers and philosophers who really counted, who really touched the alchemical gold, this is what they understood. This is the shamanic dance in the waterfall. This is how magic is done. By hurling yourself into the abyss and discovering it’s a feather bed.” Terrence McKenna

“When I am, as it were, completely in myself, entirely alone, and of good cheer — say traveling in a carriage, or walking after a good meal, or during the night when I cannot sleep; it is on such occasions that my ideas flow best and most abundantly. Whence and how they come, I know not; nor can I force them. All this fires my soul, and, provided I am not disturbed, my subject enlarges itself, becomes methodized and defined…All this inventing, this producing, takes place in a pleasing lively dream.” ~ Mozart
