    David Rettig Hinojosahas quoted6 months ago
    The force itself that is manifested, the inner nature of the phenomena that appear in accordance with those laws, remain for it an eternal secret, something entirely strange and unknown, in the case of the simplest as well as of the most complicated phenomenon.
    David Rettig Hinojosahas quoted6 months ago
    Life and dreams are leaves of one and the same book.
    David Rettig Hinojosahas quoted6 months ago
    Past and future (apart from the consequences of their content) are as empty and unreal as any dream; but present is only the boundary between the two, having neither extension nor duration.
