„The city offers certainly advantages, I agree. But I think that they do not outweigh the direct, unadulterated inspiration of the natural life that I find here [in the country, in Machelen].“

—  Roger Raveel painter 1921 - 2013
version in original Flemish (citaat van Roger Raveel, in het Vlaams): De stad biedt ongemene voordelen, accoord. Maar ik vind dat ze niet opwegen tegen de directe, onvervalste inspiratie van het natuurlijke leven dat ik hier [in Machelen] vindt. Quote of Raveel, in an interview with Hugo Claus, published in the Flemish magazine 'Vooruit' in 1957 (translation: Fons Heijnsbroek) Raveel lived his entire life in the Flemish village of Machelen, on the river De Leie

„It is not possible to enter into the nature of the Good by standing aloof from it — by merely speculating upon it.“

—  Felix Adler German American professor of political and social ethics, rationalist, and lecturer 1851 - 1933
Context: It is not possible to enter into the nature of the Good by standing aloof from it — by merely speculating upon it. Act the Good, and you will believe in it. Throw yourself into the stream of the world's good tendency and you will feel the force of the current and the direction in which it is setting. The conviction that the world is moving toward great ends of progress will come surely to him who is himself engaged in the work of progress. By ceaseless efforts to live the good life we maintain our moral sanity. Not from without, but from within, flow the divine waters that renew the soul.
