Love has reasons which reason cannot understand.
The wide world is all about you: you can fence yourselves in, but you cannot forever fence it out.
J. R. R. Tolkien
Racism oppresses its victims, but also binds the oppressors, who sear their consciences with more and more lies until they become prisoners of those lies. They cannot face the truth of human equality because it reveals the horror of the injustices they commit.
If you want to be a real human being - a real woman, a real man - you cannot tolerate things which put you to indignation, to outrage. You must stand up. I always say to people, 'Look around; look at what makes you unhappy, what makes you furious, and then engage yourself in some action.'
Horror is the future. And you cannot be afraid. You must push everything to the absolute limit, or else life will be boring. People will be boring. Horror is like a serpent: always shedding its skin, always changing. And it will always come back. It can't be hidden away like the guilty secrets we try to keep in our subconscious.
The white man's happiness cannot be purchased by the black man's misery.
The dead cannot cry out for justice. It is a duty of the living to do so for them.
Lois McMaster Bujold
One cannot comprehend Him through reason, even if one reasoned for ages.
It seems to be a law of nature, inflexible and inexorable, that those who will not risk cannot win.
John Paul Jones
If we have an atom that is in an excited state and so is going to emit a photon, we cannot say when it will emit the photon. It has a certain amplitude to emit the photon at any time, and we can predict only a probability for emission; we cannot predict the future exactly.
Richard P. Feynman
If you can, help others; if you cannot do that, at least do not harm them.
It is amazing that people who think we cannot afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, and medication somehow think that we can afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, medication and a government bureaucracy to administer it.
He who cannot give anything away cannot feel anything either.
Beauty and femininity are ageless and can't be contrived, and glamour, although the manufacturers won't like this, cannot be manufactured. Not real glamour; it's based on femininity.
The clear and present danger of climate change means we cannot burn our way to prosperity. We already rely too heavily on fossil fuels. We need to find a new, sustainable path to the future we want. We need a clean industrial revolution.
The work of an advertising agency is warmly and immediately human. It deals with human needs, wants, dreams and hopes. Its 'product' cannot be turned out on an assembly line.
Where the stakes are the highest, in the war on terror, we cannot possibly succeed without extraordinary international cooperation. Effective international police actions require the highest degree of intelligence sharing, planning and collaborative enforcement.
You cannot be lonely if you like the person you're alone with.
I cannot live without books.
That one plant should be sown and another be produced cannot happen; whatever seed is sown, a plant of that kind even comes forth.
If equal affection cannot be, let the more loving be me.
W. H. Auden
As long as we are persistence in our pursuit of our deepest destiny, we will continue to grow. We cannot choose the day or time when we will fully bloom. It happens in its own time.
Sooner or later, we will have to recognise that the Earth has rights, too, to live without pollution. What mankind must know is that human beings cannot live without Mother Earth, but the planet can live without humans.
You cannot create experience. You must undergo it.
History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again.
You cannot find peace by avoiding life.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
