O ka makapo wale no ka mea hapapa i ka pouli.

 

 

Only the blind gropes in the darkness.

If you have no direction in life, you’ll get nowhere or another way to put it is, “If you’re going nowhere, you’re guarenteed to get there.”

“I don’t think it had ever occurred to me that man’s supremacy is not primarily due to his brain, as most of the books would have one think. It is due to the brain’s capacity to make use of the information conveyed to it by a narrow band of visible light rays. His civilisation, all that he had achieved or might achieve, hung upon his ability to perceive that range of vibrations from red to violet. Without that, he was lost.”

― John Wyndham, The Day of the Triffids

Move beyond the fiery screen,  Between the seen and the unseen; Shed your anger and your fear,  Live anew in a new year!” –   Lore of the Door

You’re beautiful, but you’re empty…One couldn’t die for you. Of course, an ordinary passerby would think my rose looked just like you. But my rose, all on her own, is more important than all of you together, since she’s the one I’ve watered. Since she’s the one I put under glass, since she’s the one I sheltered behind the screen. Since she’s the one for whom I killed the caterpillars (except the two or three butterflies). Since she’s the one I listened to when she complained, or when she boasted, or even sometimes when she said nothing at all. Since she’s my rose.” 

Antoine de Saint-ExupéryThe Little Prince

The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”

“You have lost your reason and taken the wrong path. You have taken lies for truth, and hideousness for beauty. You would marvel if, owing to strange events of some sorts, frogs and lizards suddenly grew on apple and orange trees instead of fruit, or if roses began to smell like a sweating horse; so I marvel at you who exchange heaven for earth. I don’t want to understand you.”

― Anton Chekhov

Arrogance is blind to the stumbling block.

“I know it’s not clothes that make women beautiful or otherwise, nor beauty care, nor expensive creams, nor the distinction of costliness of their finery. I know the problem lies elsewhere. I don’t know where. I only know it isn’t where women think.”

― Marguerite Duras, The Lover
