„When you have an emotion you are recruiting a variety of mechanisms that came in the long history of evolution, long before emotions arose, and those mechanisms all had to do with how an organism manages its life.“

Antonio Damasio, Brain and mind from medicine to society 2/2, Open University of Catalonia, 2005 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agxMmhHn5G4

„Live all you can — it's a mistake not to. It doesn't so much matter what you do in particular, so long as you have your life. If you haven't had that, what have you had?“

—  Henry James, livro The Ambassadors

Fonte: The Ambassadors (1903), book V, ch. II.
Contexto: Live all you can — it's a mistake not to. It doesn't so much matter what you do in particular, so long as you have your life. If you haven't had that, what have you had?.. What one loses one loses; make no mistake about that... The right time is any time that one is still so lucky as to have.. Live!

„Between the conception
And the creation
Between the emotion
And the response
Falls the Shadow
Life is very long.“

—  T.S. Eliot, livro The Hollow Men

Variante: Between the desire
And the spasm
Between the potency
And the existence
Between the essence
And the descent
Falls the Shadow

„War has changed little in principle from the beginning of recorded history. The mechanized warfare of today is only an evolution of the time when men fought with clubs and stones, and its machines are as nothing without the men who invent them, man them and give them life.“

—  Ernest King United States Navy admiral, Chief of Naval Operations 1878 - 1956

p. viii
Contexto: War has changed little in principle from the beginning of recorded history. The mechanized warfare of today is only an evolution of the time when men fought with clubs and stones, and its machines are as nothing without the men who invent them, man them and give them life. War is force- force to the utmost- force to make the enemy yield to our own will- to yield because they see their comrades killed and wounded- to yield because their own will to fight is broken. War is men against men. Mechanized war is still men against men, for machines are masses of inert metal without the men who control them- or destroy them.

„We have been troubled about the world, and had almost lost faith in man; it helps to think about the long history of the earth, and of how life came to be. And when we think in terms of millions of years, we are not so impatient that our own problems be solved tomorrow.“

Thou seest how few be the things, the which if a man has at his command his life flows gently on and is divine.
