„There are no random acts… We are all connected… You can no more separate one life from another than you can separate a breeze from the wind…“

—  Mitch Albom, livro As Cinco Pessoas Que Encontramos no Céu

Variante: That there are no random acts. That we are all connected. That you can no more separate on life from another than you can separate a breeze from the wind.

Contexto: "All the people you meet here have one thing to teach you." Eddie was skeptical. His fists stayed clenched. "What?" he said. "That there are no random acts. That we are all connected. That you can no more separate one life from another than you can separate a breeze from the wind."

„In life's tragedy, separation is the only thing one sees.“

—  Henri Barbusse French novelist 1873 - 1935

The Inferno (1917), Ch. XVI
Contexto: A couple, a man and a woman — poor human beings almost always go in pairs — approached, and passed. I saw the empty space between them. In life's tragedy, separation is the only thing one sees. They had been happy, and they were no longer happy. They were almost old already. He did not care for her, although they were growing old together. What were they saying? In a moment of open-heartedness, trusting to the peacefulness reigning between them at that time, he owned up to an old transgression, to a betrayal scrupulously and religiously hidden until then. Alas, his words brought back an irreparable agony. The past, which had gently lain dead, rose to life again for suffering. Their former happiness was destroyed. The days gone by, which they had believed happy, were made sad; and that is the woe in everything.

„There is more than just grandeur in this view of life, bleak and cold though it can seem from under the security blanket of ignorance. There is deep refreshment to be had from standing up and facing straight into the strong keen wind of understanding: Yeats's 'Winds that blow through the starry ways.“

—  Richard Dawkins, livro A Devil's Chaplain
