Mysteries are not necessarily miracles.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

There are mysteries which men can only guess at, which age by age they may solve only in part.
Neutrinos alone, among all the known particles, have ethereal properties that are striking and romantic enough both to have inspired a poem by John Updike and to have sent teams of scientists deep underground for 50 years to build huge science-fiction-like contraptions to unravel their mysteries.
Lawrence M. Krauss
Mysteries once thought to be supernatural or paranormal happenings - such as astronomical or meteorological events - are incorporated into science once their causes are understood.

Sue Monk Kidd

The mother cannot expect her daughter to understand the mysteries of housekeeping without education. She should instruct them patiently, lovingly, and make the work as agreeable as she can by her cheerful countenance and encouraging words of approval.

Ellen G. White
Mysteries are feminine; they like to veil themselves but still want to be seen and divined.
Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel

Bereavement is the deepest initiation into the mysteries of human life, an initiation more searching and profound than even happy love.
You can approach 'The Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death' in a variety or combination of ways: as a startlingly eccentric hobby; as a series of unresolved murder mysteries; as the manifestation of one woman's peculiar psychic life; as a lesson in forensics; as a metaphor for the fate of women; as a photographic study.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
