—  Norodom Sihanouk, Said during his exile in Peking, as quoted by Oriana Fallaci (June 1973), Intervista con la Storia (sixth edition, 2011). page 116.

„Yet what are seas and what is air? For all
Is God, and but a talisman are heaven and earth
To veil Divinity.“

—  Attar of Nishapur Persian Sufi poet 1142 - 1221
Context: Yet what are seas and what is air? For all Is God, and but a talisman are heaven and earth To veil Divinity.

"All Pervading Consciousness"
