„How old the world is! I walk between two eternities...“

—  Denis Diderot French Enlightenment philosopher and encyclopædist 1713 - 1784
Context: How old the world is! I walk between two eternities... What is my fleeting existence in comparison with that decaying rock, that valley digging its channel ever deeper, that forest that is tottering and those great masses above my head about to fall? I see the marble of tombs crumbling into dust; and yet I don’t want to die! Salon of 1767 (1798), Oeuvres esthétiques <!-- p. 644 -->

„If I could only have you near
To breathe a sigh or two
I would be happy just to hold the hands I love
On this winters night with you“

„I came into the world with two priceless advantages: good health and a love of learning.“

—  Louis L'Amour Novelist, short story writer 1908 - 1988
Context: My own education, which is the one I know most about, has been haphazard, a hit-and-miss affair that was and continues to be thoroughly delightful. I came into the world with two priceless advantages: good health and a love of learning. When I left school at the age of fifteen I was halfway through the tenth grade. I left for two reasons, economic necessity being the first of them. More important was that school was interfering with my education. Ch. 1

„Wisdom tells me I am nothing. Love tells me I am everything. And between the two my life flows.“

—  Nisargadatta Maharaj, I Am That
Context: "I find that somehow, by shifting the focus of attention, I become the very thing I look at, and experience the kind of consciousness it has; I become the inner witness of the thing. I call this capacity of entering other focal points of consciousness, love; you may give it any name you like. Love says 'I am everything'. Wisdom says "I am nothing'. Between the two, my life flows. Since at any point of time and space I can be both the subject and the object of experience, I express it by saying that I am both, and neither, and beyond both."
