Guru Nanak

Though we may never be able to comprehend human life, we know certainly that it is a movement, of whatever nature it be. The existence of movement unavoidably implies a body which is being moved and a force which is moving it. Hence, wherever there is life, there is a mass moved by a force. All mass possesses inertia; all force tends to persist.
Nikola Tesla

I believe though I do not comprehend, and I hold by faith what I cannot grasp with the mind.
