„I realized that the future of aviation, to which I had devoted so much of my life, depended less on the perfection of aircraft than on preserving the epoch-evolved environment of life, and that this was true of all technological progress.“

„Let it be a dream, so be it, but that real life of which you make so much I had meant to extinguish by suicide, and my dream, my dream — oh, it revealed to me a different life, renewed, grand and full of power!“

—  Fyodor Dostoyevsky, livro The Dream of a Ridiculous Man

II
The Dream of a Ridiculous Man (1877)
Contexto: Yes, I dreamed a dream, my dream of the third of November. They tease me now, telling me it was only a dream. But does it matter whether it was a dream or reality, if the dream made known to me the truth? If once one has recognized the truth and seen it, you know that it is the truth and that there is no other and there cannot be, whether you are asleep or awake. Let it be a dream, so be it, but that real life of which you make so much I had meant to extinguish by suicide, and my dream, my dream — oh, it revealed to me a different life, renewed, grand and full of power!

„So what is true for life itself is no less true for the universe: knowing where you came from is no less important than knowing where you are going.“

—  Neil deGrasse Tyson American astrophysicist and science communicator 1958

2000s
Contexto: No matter who you are, engaging in the quest to discover where and how things began tends to induce emotional fervor—as if knowing the beginning bestows upon you some form of fellowship with, or perhaps governance over, all that comes later. So what is true for life itself is no less true for the universe: knowing where you came from is no less important than knowing where you are going.

—  Luciano Pavarotti Italian operatic tenor 1935 - 2007

Penso che una vita per la musica sia una vita spesa bene ed è a questo che mi sono dedicato.

„I cannot be content with less than heaven;
Living, and comprehensive of all life.“

—  Philip James Bailey, Festus

Festus (1839)
Contexto: I cannot be content with less than heaven;
Living, and comprehensive of all life.
Thee, universal heaven, celestial all;
Thee, sacred seat of intellective time;
Field of the soul's best wisdom: home of truth,
Star-throned.
