Page 1 Page 2 Page 3
Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.
~ Plato

A broad margin of leisure is as beautiful in a man's life as in a book. Haste makes waste, no less in life than in housekeeping. Keep the time, observe the hours of the universe, not of the cars.
~ Henry David Thoreau

The whole theory of the universe is directed unerringly to one single individual.
~ Walt Whitman

There is no chance and anarchy in the universe. All is system and gradation. Every god is there sitting in his sphere.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
We can allow satellites, planets, suns, universe, nay whole systems of universes, to be governed by laws, but the smallest insect, we wish to be created at once by special act.
~ Charles Darwin

We will build new ships to carry man forward into the universe, to gain a new foothold on the moon and to prepare for new journeys to the worlds beyond our own.
~ George W. Bush

A universe with a God would look quite different from a universe without one. A physics, a biology where there is a God is bound to look different. So the most basic claims of religion are scientific. Religion is a scientific theory.
~ Richard Dawkins

Man must rise above the Earth - to the top of the atmosphere and beyond - for only thus will he fully understand the world in which he lives.
~ Socrates
Imagination is the real and eternal world of which this vegetable universe is but a faint shadow.
~ William Blake

The cosmos is all that is or ever was or ever will be. Our feeblest contemplatio...ns of the Cosmos stir us—there is a tingling in the spine, a catch in the voice, a faint sensation, as if a distant memory, or falling from a height. We know we are approaching the greatest of mysteries.
~ Carl Sagan
If we do discover a complete theory, it should be in time understandable in broad principle by everyone. Then we shall all, philosophers, scientists, and just ordinary people be able to take part in the discussion of why we and the universe exist.
~ Stephen Hawking

It is impossible to imagine the universe run by a wise, just and omnipotent God, but it is quite easy to imagine it run by a board of gods.
~ H. L. Mencken

The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be.
~ Douglas Adams

Things are as they are. Looking out into it the universe at night, we make no comparisons between right and wrong stars, nor between well and badly arranged constellations.
~ Alan Watts

Look out into the universe and contemplate the glory of God. Observe the stars, millions of them, twinkling in the night sky, all with a message of unity, part of the very nature of God.
~ Sai Baba

The human mind is not capable of grasping the Universe. We are like a little child entering a huge library. The walls are covered to the ceilings with books in many different tongues. The child knows that someone must have written these books. It does not know who or how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. But the child notes a definite plan in the arrangement of the books - a mysterious order which it does not comprehend, but only dimly suspects.
~ Albert Einstein
Look out into the universe and contemplate the glory of God. Observe the stars, millions of them, twinkling in the night sky, all with a message of unity, part of the very nature of God.
~ Sai Baba

The universe we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil, no good, nothing but blind, pitiless indifference.
~ Richard Dawkins

The universe is change; our life is what our thoughts make it.
~ Marcus Aurelius

When prayer removes distrust and doubt and enters the field of mental certainty, it becomes faith; and the universe is built on faith.
~ Ernest Holmes

There's only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that's your own self.
~ Aldous Huxley

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
~ Douglas Adams

Galileo Galilei
Galileo Galilei
He was, at his time, not only one of the world's foremost astrologers, but a philosopher, physicist, and mathematician as well. For his astrological theories and his true support of Copernicus, Galileo was many times criticized by the church. Galileo is considered one of the first true scientists because of his system of hypothesis and experimentation. He found that Jupiter did have moons that revolved around it. He also discovered lunar mountains and valleys, and added on to previous discoveries of sunspots, which displayed the 'imperfections' of what was thought to be a perfect universe. (1564 - 1642)
