„Only connect the prose and the passion, and both will be exalted, and human love will be seen at its highest. Live in fragments no longer.“

—  E.M. Forster, book Howards End
Howards End (1910), Context: Only connect! That was the whole of her sermon. Only connect the prose and the passion, and both will be exalted, and human love will be seen at its height. Live in fragments no longer. Only connect, and the beast and the monk, robbed of the isolation that is life to either, will die. Ch. 22

„It is where life is fundamental and free that men develop the vision needed to reveal the human soul in the blossoms it puts forth.“

—  Frank Lloyd Wright American architect (1867-1959) 1867 - 1959
Context: It is where life is fundamental and free that men develop the vision needed to reveal the human soul in the blossoms it puts forth. … In a great workshop like Chicago this creative power germinates, even though the brutality and selfish preoccupation of the place drive it elsewhere for bread. Men of this type have loved Chicago, have worked for her, and believed in her. The hardest thing they have to bear is her shame. These men could live and work here when to live and work in New York would stifle their genius and fill their purse.... New York still believes that art should be imported; brought over in ships; and is a quite contented market place. So while New York has reproduced much and produced nothing, Chicago’s achievements in architecture have gained world-wide recognition as a distinctively American architecture. Lecture to the Chicago Women’s Aid (1918); later published as "Chicago Culture" in On Architecture: Selected Writings (1894-1940) (1941)

„The soul of man is divided into three parts, intelligence, reason, and passion. Intelligence and passion are possessed by other animals, but reason by man alone.“

—  Pythagoras ancient Greek mathematician and philosopher -585 - -500 a.C.
Τὴν δ' ἀνθρώπου ψυχὴν διῃρῆσθαι τριχῆ, εἴς τε νοῦν καὶ φρένας καὶ θυμόν. νοῦν μὲν οὖν καὶ θυμὸν εἶναι καὶ ἐν τοῖς ἄλλοις ζῴοις, φρένας δὲ μόνον ἐν ἀνθρώπῳ. As reported by Alexander Polyhistor, and Diogenes Laërtius in Lives and Opinions of Eminent Philosophers, "Pythagoras", Sect. 30, in the translation of C. D. Yonge (1853)

„Sobriety is the strength of the soul, for it preserves its reason unclouded by passion.“

—  Pythagoras ancient Greek mathematician and philosopher -585 - -500 a.C.
As quoted in The History of Philosophy: From the Earliest Times to the Beginning of the Present Century (1819) by William Enfield Sobriety is the strength of the mind; for it preserves reason unclouded by passion. As quoted in Bible of Reason (1831) by Benjamin F. Powell, p. 157 Strength of mind rests in sobriety; for this keeps your reason unclouded by passion.
