Context: The Spartans weren't to be led and ordered around like precious servants. Besides, they wouldn't have thought a pan-Hellenic expedition without a Spartan king in command was to be taken very seriously. Of course, then, "except the Lacedaimonians." That's certainly one point of view. Quite understandable. " In The Year 200 B.C. http://cavafis.compupress.gr/kave_1.htm" (1931)

„It isn't always the middle-aged who refuse to listen, who will not even try to understand another point of view.“

—  Madeleine L'Engle American writer 1918 - 2007
Context: It isn't always the middle-aged who refuse to listen, who will not even try to understand another point of view.

Abraham Joshua Heschel Fotografia

„Awe is more than an emotion; it is a way of understanding, insight into a meaning greater than ourselves.“

—  Abraham Joshua Heschel Polish-American Conservative Judaism Rabbi 1907 - 1972
Context: Awe is more than an emotion; it is a way of understanding, insight into a meaning greater than ourselves. The beginning of awe is wonder, and the beginning of wisdom is awe. Awe is an intuition for the dignity of all things, a realization that things not only are what they are but also stand, however remotely, for something supreme. Awe is a sense for transcendence, for the reference everywhere to mystery beyond all things. It enables us to perceive in the world intimations of the divine, to sense in small things the beginning of infinite significance, to sense the ultimate in the common and the simple: to feel in the rush of the passing the stillness of the eternal. What we cannot comprehend by analysis, we become aware of in awe. Ch. 5<!-- The sense of the ineffable, p. 88 - 89 -->
