„The human mind loves the bondage of words and is apt, when freed from one form of their tyranny, to set up another more oppressive than the last.“

—  L. P. Jacks British educator, philosopher, and Unitarian minister 1860 - 1955

The Usurpation Of Language (1910)
Contexto: The human mind loves the bondage of words and is apt, when freed from one form of their tyranny, to set up another more oppressive than the last.
The highest function of philosophy is to enforce the attitude of meditation and therewithal restrain the excessive volubility of the tongue. To us it seems that the reflective thinker wins his greatest victories when by what he says he compels us to recognise the relative insignificance of anything he can say. His task is not to capture Reality, but to free it from captivity.

„It is by loving and not by being loved that one can come nearest to the soul of another.“

—  George MacDonald, livro Phantastes

Phantastes (1858)
Variante: It is by loving and not by being loved, that one can come nearest to the soul of another.
Contexto: I knew now, that it is by loving, and not by being loved, that one can come nearest the soul of another; yea, that, where two love, it is the loving of each other, and not the being loved by each other, that originates and perfects and assures their blessedness. I knew that love gives to him that loveth, power over any soul beloved, even if that soul know him not, bringing him inwardly close to that spirit; a power that cannot be but for good; for in proportion as selfishness intrudes, the love ceases, and the power which springs therefrom dies. Yet all love will, one day, meet with its return. All true love will, one day, behold its own image in the eyes of the beloved, and be humbly glad. This is possible in the realms of lofty Death.
