„The world's nature is a harmonious compound of infinite and finite elements“

— Filolau de Crotona, Context: Fragment 1. (Stob.21.7; Diog.#.8.85) The world's nature is a harmonious compound of infinite and finite elements; similar is the totality of the world in itself, and of all it contains. b. All beings are necessarily finite or infinite, or simultaneously finite and infinite; but they could not all be infinite only.

„When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.“

— John Muir Scottish-born American naturalist and author 1838 - 1914
Variant: Tug on anything at all and you'll find it connected to everything else in the universe. These are paraphrases of Muir's quote from My First Summer in the Sierra (1911) - the actual quote is listed above: "When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe."
