Johannes quotes by Johannes Stark

Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#4. Religious truth is captive in a small number of little manuscripts which guard the common treasures, instead of expanding them. Let us break the seal which binds these holy things; let us give wings to truth that it may fly with the Word, no longer prepared at vast expense, but multitudes everlastingly by a machine which never wearies to every soul which enters life. - Author: Johannes Gutenberg
Johannes quotes by Johannes Gutenberg
#5. Anger should be especially kept down in punishing, because he who comes to punishment in wrath will never hold that middle course which lies between the too much and the too little. It is also true that it would be desirable that they who hold the office of Judges should be like the laws, which approach punishment not in a spirit of anger but in one of equity. - Author: Johannes Voet
Johannes quotes by Johannes Voet

Johannes quotes by Johannes Brahms
#8. The malefactor is you. And so I would like to know who you are, what you are, where you are, whence you are, and what good you do, for you to possess so much power and to have challenged me so evilly without warning, desolated my bliss-covered meadow, undermined and brought down my tower of strength.

Ah God, Consoler of all afflicted hearts, console and compensate me, this poor, grieving, miserable, lone-sitting man! Send, Lord, plagues; undertake retaliation; shackle and eradicate abominable Death, Your enemy, and enemy to all! Truly, Lord, there is nothing in Your creation more heinous, nothing more hideous, nothing more cruel, nothing more unjust, than Death! He distresses and destroys Your entire earthly realm; he takes the upright away before the dishonest; the harmful, the old, the infirm, the useless, he often leaves here; the good and the useful, he carries all of them off. Pass judgement, Lord, just judgement on the false judge! - Author: Johannes Von Saaz
Johannes quotes by Johannes Von Saaz
#9. What am I? The modest narrator who accompanies your triumphs; the dancer who supports you when you rise in your lovely grace; the branch upon which you rest a moment when you are tired of flying; the bass that interposes itself below the soprano's fervour to let it climb even higher - what am I? I am the earthly gravity that keeps you on the ground. What am I, then? Body, mass, earth, dust and ashes. - You, my Cordelia, you are soul and spirit."

- Johannes the Seducer, from_Either/Or_ - Author: Søren Kierkegaard
Johannes quotes by Søren Kierkegaard
#10. To speak, therefore, of an electric current in the nerves, is to use quite as symbolic an expression as if we compared the action of the nervous principle with light or magnetism. - Author: Johannes P. Muller
Johannes quotes by Johannes P. Muller

Johannes quotes by Johannes Tauler
#14. Not entirely fair?" His voice became that of the inferno: a rushing, booming howl of icy evil that flew around the great cavern, as swift and cold as the Wendigo on skates. "I am Satan, also called Lucifer the Light Bearer ... "
Cabal winced. What was it about devils that they always had to give you their whole family history?
"I was cast down from the presence of God himself into this dark, sulfurous pit and condemned to spend eternity here-"
"Have you tried saying sorry?" interrupted Cabal.
"No, I haven't! I was sent down for a sin of pride. It rather undermines my position if I say 'sorry'! - Author: Jonathan L. Howard
Johannes quotes by Jonathan L. Howard
#15. We can in fact first place the beam of rays of moving positive atomic ions in a plane perpendicular to the axis in which we see the spectral lines emitted by them. - Author: Johannes Stark
Johannes quotes by Johannes Stark
#16. If the experimental physicist has already done a great deal of work in this field, nevertheless the theoretical physicist has still hardly begun to evaluate the experimental material which may lead him to conclusions about the structure of the atom. - Author: Johannes Stark
Johannes quotes by Johannes Stark
#17. If you want to be a good lair, tell people what they want to hear. (From Hot dogs under The Dakota) - Author: Johannes Gouws
Johannes quotes by Johannes Gouws
#18. Leonie Barrow's voice was quiet but clear. With Marechal's eyes on her, she said, "Cabal is more dangerous then you can believe, Count. Both the angels and the devils fear him. He's a monster, but an evenhanded one. I know he is capable of the most appalling acts of evil." Her glance moved to Cabal, who was listening dispassionately. "I believe he is also capable of great good. But to predict which he will do next isn't easy or safe."
Marechal grimaced. "What is your association with this man? Public relations or something?"
"I loathe him," she said with sudden venom. The, more quietly, "And I admire him. You're right; he didn't have to come back. He's taken a big risk, but I know he's taken bigger. I can't tell you whether he's a monster or playing the hero right now, but I know one thing. You made the biggest mistake of your life when you made an enemy of him. - Author: Jonathan L. Howard
Johannes quotes by Jonathan L. Howard
#19. Kepler's discovery would not have been possible without the doctrine of conics. Now contemporaries of Kepler - such penetrating minds as Descartes and Pascal - were abandoning the study of geometry ... because they said it was so UTTERLY USELESS. There was the future of the human race almost trembling in the balance; for had not the geometry of conic sections already been worked out in large measure, and had their opinion that only sciences apparently useful ought to be pursued, the nineteenth century would have had none of those characters which distinguish it from the ancien régime. - Author: Charles Sanders Peirce
Johannes quotes by Charles Sanders Peirce
#20. The Earth is round, and is inhabited on all sides, is insignificantly small, and is borne through the stars. - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#21. The cause of the six-sided shape of a snowflake is none other than that of the ordered shapes of plants and of numerical constants; and since in them nothing occurs without supreme reason-not, to be sure, such as discursive reasoning discovers, but such as existed from the first in the Creators's design and is preserved from that origin to this day in the wonderful nature of animal faculties, I do not believe that even in a snowflake this ordered pattern exists at random. - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#22. When ships to sail the void between the stars have been built, there will step forth men to sail these ships. - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler

Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#25. He's painted himself into a corner and a thousand lazy reporters and ever-so-sincere politicians had rendered the only word that he could use comically melodramatic. 'I think ... Johannes Cabal ... is evil. - Author: Jonathan L. Howard
Johannes quotes by Jonathan L. Howard

Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#28. It is a press, certainly, but a press from which shall flow in inexhaustible streamsThrough it, God will spread His Word. A spring of truth shall flow from it: like a new star it shall scatter the darkness of ignorance, and cause a light heretofore unknown to shine amongst men. - Author: Johannes Gutenberg
Johannes quotes by Johannes Gutenberg
#29. Priusquam autem ad creationem, hoc est ad finem omnis disputationis, veniamus: tentanda omnia existimo.
However, before we come to [special] creation, which puts an end to all discussion: I think we should try everything else. - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#30. I shall be your poet! I do not want to be a poet for others; make your appearance, and I shall be your poet. I shall eat my own poem, and that will be my food. Or do you find me unworthy? Just as a temple dancer dances to the honor of the god Gudutl, so I have consecrated myself to your service; light, thinly clad, limber, unarmed, I renounce everything. I own nothing; I desire to own nothing; I love nothing; I have nothing to lose-but have I not thereby become more worthy of you, you who long ago must have been tired of depriving people of what they love, tired of their craven sniveling and craven pleading. Surprise me-I am ready - Author: Soren Kierkegaard
Johannes quotes by Soren Kierkegaard
#31. Where there is matter, there is geometry. - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#32. Some of what these pamphlets [of astrological forecasts] say will turn out to be true, but most of it time and experience will expose as empty and worthless. The latter part will be forgotten literally: written on the winds while the former will be carefully entered in people's memories, as is usual with the crowd. - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#33. Straight-away the ideas flow in upon me, directly from God, and not only do I see distinct themes in my mind's eye, but they are clothed in the right forms, harmonies, and orchestration. - Author: Johannes Brahms
Johannes quotes by Johannes Brahms

Johannes quotes by Johannes Brahms
#37. B1U12B. Be One You Want To Be - Author: Johannes Masombuka
Johannes quotes by Johannes Masombuka
#38. Nothing which consists of corporeal matter is absolutely light, but that is comparatively lighter which is rarer, either by its own nature, or by accidental heat. And it is not to be thought that light bodies are escaping to the surface of the universe while they are carried upwards, or that they are not attracted by the earth. They are attracted, but in a less degree, and so are driven outwards by the heavy bodies; which being done, they stop, and are kept by the earth in their own place. - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#39. Every visible and invisible creature is an appearance of God. - Author: Johannes Scotus Eriugena
Johannes quotes by Johannes Scotus Eriugena
#40. Thus God himself was too kind to remain idle and began to play the game of signatures signing his likeness unto the world: therefore I chance to think that all nature and the graceful sky are symbolized in the art of Geometria. - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#41. It is not hard to compose but it is wonderfully hard to let the superfluous notes fall under the table ... So many melodies fly about, one must be careful not to tread on them. - Author: Johannes Brahms
Johannes quotes by Johannes Brahms
#42. In my view the structure of the whole atom was that of an individual, with all its parts interconnected, and the emission of a spectral line appeared to me to be the result of the coherence and co-operation of several electric quanta. - Author: Johannes Stark
Johannes quotes by Johannes Stark
#43. After the birth of printing books became widespread. Hence everyone throughout Europe devoted himself to the study of literature ... Every year, especially since 1563, the number of writings published in every field is greater than all those produced in the past thousand years. The Paracelsians have created medicine anew and the Copernicans have created astronomy anew. I really believe that at last the world is alive, indeed seething, and that the stimuli of these remarkable conjunctions did not act in vain. - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#44. My things really are written with an appalling lack of practicality! - Author: Johannes Brahms
Johannes quotes by Johannes Brahms

Johannes quotes by Johannes Tauler

Johannes quotes by Libba Bray
#54. … not my own opinion, but my wife's: Yesterday, when weary with writing, I was called to supper, and a salad I had asked for was set before me. 'It seems then,' I said, 'if pewter dishes, leaves of lettuce, grains of salt, drops of water, vinegar, oil and slices of eggs had been flying about in the air for all eternity, it might at last happen by chance that there would come a salad.' 'Yes,' responded my lovely, 'but not so nice as this one of mine. - Author: Johannes Kepler

Johannes quotes by Johannes Brahms
#58. You have both contested well: the one is forced by his sorrow to lament, the other by the plaintiff's attack to tell the truth. So plaintiff, yours is the honour! And Death, yours is the victory! Every man is obliged to give his life to Death, his body to the earth, and his soul to Us. - Author: Johannes Von Saaz
Johannes quotes by Johannes Von Saaz
#59. I read more books for research purposes, whether it's a fictionalized biography of Johannes Gutenberg or a stack of urban fantasies. - Author: Jim C. Hines
Johannes quotes by Jim C. Hines
#60. It is a right, yes a duty, to search in cautious manner for the numbers, sizes, and weights, the norms for everything [God] has created. For He himself has let man take part in the knowledge of these things ... For these secrets are not of the kind whose research should be forbidden; rather they are set before our eyes like a mirror so that by examining them we observe to some extent the goodness and wisdom of the Creator. - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#61. Physiology is the science which treats of the properties of organic bodies, animal and vegetable, of the phenomena they present, and of the laws which govern their actions. Inorganic substances are the objects of other sciences, - physics and chemistry. - Author: Johannes P. Muller

Johannes quotes by Johannes Rau
#65. We must prepare the ground for creativity. And if this also gives rise later to success in the economic sense, success in terms of Euros and Cents, this will by no means reduce my joy. - Author: Johannes Rau
Johannes quotes by Johannes Rau
#66. The sphere of the attractive virtue which is in the moon extends as far as the earth, and entices up the waters; but as the moon flies rapidly across the zenith, and the waters cannot follow so quickly, a flow of the ocean is occasioned in the torrid zone towards the westward. - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#67. Study Bach. There you will find everything. - Author: Johannes Brahms

Johannes quotes by Johannes Vilhelm Jensen
#72. My work is based on a tradition quite distinct from the Eckersberg tradition, a Nordic line of development that had never been clearly and consistently defined in the literature on art. This line is not a straight one; it has the strangest and most fascinating twists and curves, and includes such artists as Edvard Munch, Ernest Josephson, Hill , Hansen Jacobsen, Johannes Holbek, Jens Lund, and Emile Nolde. Not all of them equally well known. - Author: Asger Jorn
Johannes quotes by Asger Jorn
#73. Now, let us consider the life of Johannes Cabal, if briefly. He is closing on his thirtieth year and is ageing better than most, although this is a product of a lifestyle where sunlight is shunned rather than the assiduous use of moisturiser. He stands a little over six feet tall. He is blond, blue eyed, and, perforce, pale. These are not unusual characteristics; those are coming. - Author: Jonathan L. Howard
Johannes quotes by Jonathan L. Howard
#74. Never criticize the composition of a Royal Highness. You never know who may have written it. - Author: Johannes Brahms
Johannes quotes by Johannes Brahms

Johannes quotes by Johannes Tauler
#76. To discern what weaknesses and faults separate you from God, you must enter into your own inward ground and then confront yourself. - Author: Johannes Tauler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Tauler
#77. For under certain conditions the chemical atoms emit light waves of a specific length or oscillation frequency - their familiar characteristic spectra - and these can come in the form of electromagnetic waves only from accelerated electric quanta. - Author: Johannes Stark
Johannes quotes by Johannes Stark
#78. If there is anything that can bind the mind of man to this dreary exile of our earthly home and can reconcile us with our fate so that one can enjoy living, - then it is verily the enjoyment of the mathematical sciences and astronomy. - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#79. I too play with symbols ... but I play in such a way that I do not forget that I am playing. For nothing is proved by symbols ... unless by sure reasons it can be demonstrated that they are not merely symbolic but are descriptions of the ways in which the two things are connected and of the causes of this connection. - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#80. The grounding in natural sciences which I obtained in the course of my medical studies, including preliminary examinations in botany, zoology, physics, and chemistry, was to become decisive in determining the trend of my literary work. - Author: Johannes Vilhelm Jensen
Johannes quotes by Johannes Vilhelm Jensen

Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#83. If this [the Mysterium cosmographicum] is published, others will perhaps make discoveries I might have reserved for myself. But we are all ephemeral creatures (and none more so than I). I have, therefore, for the Glory of God, who wants to be recognized from the book of Nature, that these things may be published as quickly as possible. The more others build on my work the happier I shall be. - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#84. He who wishes to become a master of color must see, feel, and experience each individual color in its endless combinations with all other colors. - Author: Johannes Itten
Johannes quotes by Johannes Itten
#85. Repudiating the sensible world, which he neither sees himself nor believes from those who have, the Peripatetic joins combat by childish quibbling in a world on paper, and denies the Sun shines because he himself is blind. - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#86. The most common and most important result of them is that the nature and size of the effect on corresponding series of different elements are largely an expression of the peculiarity of their atomic structure - or, at least, of the structure of the surface. - Author: Johannes Stark
Johannes quotes by Johannes Stark
#87. Every corporeal substance, so far forth as it is corporeal, has a natural fitness for resting in every place where it may be situated by itself beyond the sphere of influence of a body cognate with it. - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#88. I have consummated the work to which I pledged myself, using all the abilities that You (God) gave me; I have shown the glory of Your works to men, but if I have pursued my own glory among men while engaged in a work intended for Your glory, be merciful, be compassionate, and forgive. - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler

Johannes quotes by Jessie Burton
#93. She's a bike. A tart. A slut. She'll be buried in a Y-shaped coffin. A baggage. A hussy. She's the good time that was had by all. A wanton floozy." She looked closely at him, but he still seemed to be stuck on cricket. "A nymphomaniac."
The use of a technical term shook him from his paralysis. Realisation flooded his face and a silent "Oh!" filled his mouth. - Author: Jonathan L. Howard
Johannes quotes by Jonathan L. Howard
#94. If the earth should cease to attract its waters to itself all the waters of the sea would be raised and would flow to the body of the moon. - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#95. Imagination is an abuse of power. - Author: Johannes Grenzfurthner
Johannes quotes by Johannes Grenzfurthner
#96. Geometry, which before the origin of things was coeternal with the divine mind and is God himself (for what could there be in God which would not be God himself?), supplied God with patterns for the creation of the world, and passed over to Man along with the image of God; and was not in fact taken in through the eyes. - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#97. The more love that fell your way, the more sorrow will befall you; if you had abstained from love, you would now be relieved of sorrow; the greater the love you enjoy, the greater the sorrow of life without love. Wife, child, wealth and all earthly goods must bring some measure of joy at first, and a greater of sorrow at last; all earthly love must turn to sorrow; sorrow is love's end, the end of joy is grief, sadness must follow pleasure, the enjoyment of one's will must end in disaffection – to such an end all living things must run. Learn a little more, if you wish to cackle with wisdom! - Author: Johannes Von Saaz
Johannes quotes by Johannes Von Saaz
#98. May your days be filled with minutes and your year be filled with days. - Author: S.R. Johannes

Johannes quotes by Johannes Vilhelm Jensen

Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#101. Doing what's right is always simple. Not easy, perhaps, but simple. - Author: Helen C. Johannes

Johannes quotes by Johannes Tauler
#109. Composers in the old days used to keep strictly to the base of the theme, as their real subject. Beethoven varies the melody, harmony and rhythms so beautifully. - Author: Johannes Brahms
Johannes quotes by Johannes Brahms
#110. As we read through this small pile of correspondence, a curious duplicity gradually emerges. In their language, the letters are among Kierkegaard's most outstanding achievements so far as a writer. The pen no longer pauses with the ink bleeding onto the paper; the creaky Latin syntax that once could force Kierkegaard's language into lackluster constructions is here replaced by a beguiling suppleness that lifts the lines from the page. They steal gently around their subject and draw on well-known Danish writers, such as Johannes Ewald, Jens Baggesen, Adam Oehlenschläger, Christian Winter, and Poul Martin Møller. Far from being ordinary communication, these letters are art.
Therein lies the triumph and the tragedy. For the letters, by virtue of their undeniably aesthetic quality, almost cry out to the writer that a husband is not at all what he is to become, but an author. This makes them in effect letters of "farewell that try, with great discretion and an ingenious indirectness, to make the recipient understand that the man who celebrates her up and down the page has long ago vanished from her life because he has lost himself in recollection of her. His love is bound in artifice and imagination, and he has to accept the truth of the situation, that he is in real life unsuited to the married state. From the recollection that gives life to imagination there spreads also the death that parts the lovers. - Author: Joakim Garff
Johannes quotes by Joakim Garff
#111. With this in mind, for some twenty years I have set myself as my particular task the experimental investigation of the connexion between change in the structure and change in the spectra of chemical atoms. - Author: Johannes Stark
Johannes quotes by Johannes Stark
#112. We cling nervously to the melody, but we don't handle it freely, we don't really make anything new out of it, we merely overload it. - Author: Johannes Brahms
Johannes quotes by Johannes Brahms
#113. I myself, a professional mathematician, on re-reading my own work find it strains my mental powers to recall to mind from the figures the meanings of the demonstrations, meanings which I myself originally put into the figures and the text from my mind. But when I attempt to remedy the obscurity of the material by putting in extra words, I see myself falling into the opposite fault of becoming chatty in something mathematical. - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#114. We have learnt through experience that when an electrical ray strikes the surface of an atom, an electron, and in some circumstances a second and even a third electron, can be detached. - Author: Johannes Stark
Johannes quotes by Johannes Stark
#115. Don't lose your cool; it's harder to get it together than to keep it together. - Author: S.R. Johannes
Johannes quotes by S.R. Johannes
#116. The wisdom of the Lord is infinite as are also His glory and His power. Ye heavens, sing His praises; sun, moon, and planets, glorify Him in your ineffable language! Praise Him, celestial harmonies, and all ye who can comprehend them! And thou, my soul, praise thy Creator! It is by Him and in Him that all exist. - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#117. It is a real pleasure to see music so bright and spontaneous expressed with corresponding ease and grace. - Author: Johannes Brahms

Johannes quotes by Johannes Tauler
#119. The first type of captivity consists in man's dependence on creatures, animate or inanimate, when he loves them without reference to God. - Author: Johannes Tauler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Tauler
#120. My aim is to say that the machinery of the heavens is not like a divine animal but like a clock (and anyone who believes a clock has a soul gives the work the honour due to its maker) and that in it almost all the variety of motions is from one very simple magnetic force acting on bodies, as in the clock all motions are from a very simple weight. - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#121. My secret to a long, healthy life is to always keep working. It keeps me busy and happy and gives me a reason to stay alive. - Author: Johannes Heesters
Johannes quotes by Johannes Heesters
#122. I have always believed that it is the artist who creates a work, but a society that turns it into a work of art. - Johannes Cladders - Author: Hans Ulrich Obrist
Johannes quotes by Hans Ulrich Obrist
#123. You pathetic humans! It escapes me how you endure any trial long enough even to breed, yet here you are. And why do your kind persist at all? Because every now and then - once a century, perhaps - ONE of you understands this: Death is what you accept only when you have spent all that you are - to the very last drop of your sweat and blood - in order to save what you love. That, son of Koronolan, is what a hero, a true warrior, would do. - Author: Helen C. Johannes
Johannes quotes by Helen C. Johannes
#124. The Creator, the fountain of all wisdom, the approver of perpetual order, the eternal and superessential spring of geometry and harmonics. - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#125. Some of the greatest mathematical minds of all ages, from Pythagoras and Euclid in ancient Greece, through the medieval Italian mathematician Leonardo of Pisa and the Renaissance astronomer Johannes Kepler, to present-day scientific figures such as Oxford physicist Roger Penrose, have spent endless hours over this simple ratio and its properties. But the fascination with the Golden Ratio is not confined just to mathematicians. Biologists, artists, musicians, historians, architects, psychologists, and even mystics have pondered and debated the basis of its ubiquity and appeal. In fact, it is probably fair to say that the Golden Ratio has inspired thinkers of all disciplines like no other number in the history of mathematics. - Author: Mario Livio
Johannes quotes by Mario Livio
#126. The cooperation of the two retina in one field of vision, whatever is its cause, must rather be the source of all the ideas to which single or double vision may give rise. - Author: Johannes P. Muller

#131. A most unfailing experience ... of the excitement of sublunary (that is, human) natures by the conjunctions and aspects of the planets has instructed and compelled my unwilling belief. - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#132. I am stealing the golden vessels of the Egyptians to build a tabernacle to my God from them, far far away from the boundaries of Egypt. If you forgive me, I shall rejoice; if you are enraged with me, I shall bear it. See, I cast the die, and I write the book. Whether it is to be read by the people of the present or of the future makes no difference: let it await its reader for a hundred years, if God himself has stood ready for six thousand years for one to study him. - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#133. Let God and all his creation teach you what your sins are. - Author: Johannes Tauler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Tauler

Johannes quotes by Johannes Itten
#140. God touches and moves, warns and desires all equally, and He wants one quite as much as another. The inequality lies in the way in which His touch, His warnings, and His gifts are received. - Author: Johannes Tauler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Tauler
#141. An external electric field, meeting it and passing through it, affects the negative as much as the positive quanta of the atom, and pushes the former to one side, and the latter in the other direction. - Author: Johannes Stark

Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#150. Great is God our Lord, great is His power and there is no end to His wisdom. Praise Him you heavens, glorify Him, sun and moon and you planets. For out of Him and through Him, and in Him are all things ... We know, oh, so little. To Him be the praise, the honor and the glory from eternity to eternity. - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#151. In this book, you will encounter various interesting geometries that have been thought to hold the keys to the universe. Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) suggested that "Nature's great book is written in mathematical symbols." Johannes Kepler (1571-1630) modeled the solar system with Platonic solids such as the dodecahedron. In the 1960s, physicist Eugene Wigner (1902-1995) was impressed with the "unreasonable effectiveness of mathematics in the natural sciences." Large Lie groups, like E8-which is discussed in the entry "The Quest for Lie Group E8 (2007)"- may someday help us create a unified theory of physics. in 2007, Swedish American cosmologist Max Tegmark published both scientific and popular articles on the mathematical universe hypothesis, which states that our physical reality is a mathematical structure-in other words, our universe in not just described by mathematics-it is mathematics. - Author: Clifford A. Pickover
Johannes quotes by Clifford A. Pickover
#152. Authority is the source of knowledge, but the reason of mankind is the norm by which all authority is judged.

Eóin, the Irish Gael AKA Johannes Scotus Eriugena (b.815 - d.877) - Author: Johannes Scottus Eriugena
Johannes quotes by Johannes Scottus Eriugena
#153. God is infinite and without end, but the soul's desire is an abyss which cannot be filled except by a Good which is infinite; and the more ardently the soul longeth after God, the more she wills to long after him; for God is a Good without drawback, and a well of living water without bottom, and the soul is made in the image of God, and therefore it is created to know and love God. - Author: Johannes Tauler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Tauler
#154. I had the intention of becoming a theologian ... but now I see how God is, by my endeavors, also glorified in astronomy, for 'the heavens declare the glory of God.' - Author: Johannes Kepler

#156. Eyesight should learn from reason. - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#157. The widespread inability to understand technological artifacts as fabricated entities, as social and cultural phenomena, derives from the fact that in retrospect only those technologies that prove functional for a culture and can be integrated into everyday life are 'left over.' However, the perception of what is functional, successful and useful is itself the product of social and cultural
and last but not least
political and economic processes. Selection processes and abandoned products and product forms are usually not discussed. - Author: Johannes Grenzfurthner
Johannes quotes by Johannes Grenzfurthner
#158. Judge yourself; if you do that you will not be judged by God, as St. Paul says. But it must be a real sense of your own sinfulness, not an artificial humility. - Author: Johannes Tauler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Tauler
#159. before the origin of things, geometry was coeternal with the Divine Mind - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#160. After a duration of a thousand years, the power of astrology broke down when, with Copernicus, Kepler, and Galileo, the progress of astronomy overthrew the false hypothesis upon which the entire structure rested, namely the geocentric system of the universe. The fact that the earth revolves in space intervened to upset the complicated play of planetary influences, and the silent stars, related to the unfathomable depths of the sky, no longer made their prophetic voices audible to mankind. Celestial mechanics and spectrum analysis finally robbed them of their mysterious prestige. - Author: Franz Cumont
Johannes quotes by Franz Cumont

Johannes quotes by Johannes Tauler
#162. This is Hell," he tried to explain for the third time. "Not a drop-in centre. You can't just turn up and say, 'Oh, I was just in the neighbourhood and thought I'd call by and have a bit of a chinwag with Lord Satan.' It simply isn't done."
"No," said the infuriating mortal. "It hasn't been done. There is a difference. May I pass now?"
"No, you may not. Satan's a very busy ... um, is very busy right now. He can't go interrupting his work for every Tom, Dick, and Johannes"
he paused for effect, but the human just looked at him with a faint air of what seemed to be pity

#166. In the most intimate, hidden and innermost ground of the soul, God is always essentially, actively, and substantially present. Here the soul possesses everything by grace which God possesses by nature. - Author: Johannes Tauler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Tauler
#167. I am poor - you are my riches; dark - you are my light; I own nothing, need nothing. And how could I own anything? After all, it is a contradiction that he can own something who does not own himself. I am happy as a child who is neither able to own anything nor allowed to. I own nothing, for I belong only to you; I am not, I have ceased to be, in order to be yours."

#171. Companies like Nike already use Graffiti as a standard variety in their marketing campaigns and the first people who read Naomi Klein's 'No Logo' were marketing gurus who wanted to know what they shouldn't do. - Author: Johannes Grenzfurthner
Johannes quotes by Johannes Grenzfurthner
#172. Such sins, even if they do not kill all grace in us, do harm, nevertheless; and though they are only venial in themselves, they make us apt, ready, and inclined to lose grace and to fall into mortal sin. - Author: Johannes Tauler

Johannes quotes by Johannes Rau
#175. Even Johannes Kepler, Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, Gregor Mendel, and Albert Einstein made serious mistakes. But the scientific enterprise arranges things so that teamwork prevails: What one of us, even the most brilliant among us, misses, another of us, even someone much less celebrated and capable, may detect and rectify. - Author: Carl Sagan
Johannes quotes by Carl Sagan
#176. If my false figures came near to the facts, this happened merely by chance ... These comments are not worth printing. Yet it gives me pleasure to remember how many detours I had to make, along how many walls I had to grope in the darkness of my ignorance until I found the door which lets in the light of the truth ... In such manner did I dream of the truth. - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler

#184. [God] is the kind Creator who brought forth nature out of nothing. - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#185. Abraham I cannot understand; in a way all I can learn from him is to be amazed. If one imagines one can be moved to faith by considering the outcome of this story, one deceives oneself, and is out to cheat God of faith's first movement, one is out to suck the life-wisdom out of the paradox. One or another may succeed, for our age does not stop with faith, with its miracle of turning water into wine; it goes further, it turns wine into water. - Author: Johannes De Silentio
Johannes quotes by Johannes De Silentio
#186. God suffers in the multitude of souls whom His word can not reach. Religious truth is imprisoned in a small number of manuscript books, which confine instead of spread the public treasure. Let us break the seal which seals up holy things and give wings to Truth in order that she may win every soul that comes into the world by her word no longer written at great expense by hands easily palsied, but multiplied like the wind by an untiring machine. - Author: Johannes Gutenberg
Johannes quotes by Johannes Gutenberg
#187. Geometry has two great treasures; one is the Theorem of Pythagoras; the other, the division of a line into extreme and mean ratio. The first we may compare to a measure of gold; the second we may name a precious jewel. - Author: Johannes Kepler
Johannes quotes by Johannes Kepler
#188. In my study I can lay my hand on the Bible in the pitch dark. All truly inspired ideas come from God. The powers from which all truly great composers like Mozart, Schubert, Bach and Beethoven drew their inspirations is the same power that enabled Jesus to do his miracles. - Author: Johannes Brahms
Johannes quotes by Johannes Brahms
#189. Those who enjoy their own emotionally bad health and who habitually fill their own minds with the rank poisons of suspicion, jealousy and hatred, as a rule take umbrage at those who refuse to do likewise, and they find a perverted relief in trying to denigrate them. - Author: Johannes Brahms
Johannes quotes by Johannes Brahms

#194. At noontime in midsummer, when the sun is at its highest and everything is in a state of embroiled repose, flashes may be seen in the southern sky. Into the radiance of daylight come bursts of light even more radiant. Exactly half a year later, when the fjord is frozen over and the land buried in snow, the very same spirit taunts creation. At night cracks in the ice race from one end of the fjord to the other, resounding like gunshots or like the roaring of a mad demon.
The peasants dig tunnels from their door through the drifts over to the cow shed. Where are the trolls and the elves now, and where are the sounds of nature? Even the Beast may well be dead and forgotten. Life itself hangs in suspension - existence has shrunk to nothingness. Now it is only a question of survival. The fox thrashes around in a blizzard in the oak thicket and fights his way out, mortally terrified.
It is a time of stillness. Hoarfrost lies in a timeless shroud over the fjord. All day long a strange, sighing sound is heard from out on the ice. It is a fisherman, standing alone at his hole and spearing eel.
One night it snows again. The air is sheer snow and the wind a frigid blast. No living creature is stirring. Then a rider comes to the crossing at Hvalpsund. There is no difficulty in getting over­ - he does not even slacken his speed, but rides at a brisk trot from the shore out onto the ice.
The hoofbeats thunder beneath him and the ice roars for miles around. He reaches th - Author: Johannes V. Jensen

Johannes quotes by Jonathan L. Howard
#196. Johannes had once said that violence and cruelty were just a stupid person's way of making himself felt, because it was easer to use your hands to strike a blow than to use your brain to find a logical and just solution to the problem. - Author: Anne Holm

Johannes quotes by Johannes Brahms
#199. The German astronomer Johannes Kepler coined the term "camera obscura" in the early seventeenth century, but by then the phenomenon had been known for millennia; in fact, it is perhaps the oldest known optical illusion. Some form of camera obscura was most likely behind a popular illusion performed in ancient Greece and Rome, in which spectral images were cast upon the smoke of burning incense by performers using concave metal mirrors - hence the expression "smoke and mirrors. - Author: Jennifer Ouellette
Johannes quotes by Jennifer Ouellette
#200. Christ wears "two shoes" in the world: scripture and nature. Both are necessary to understand the Lord, and at no stage can creation be seen as a separation of things from God. - Author: Johannes Scotus Eriugena
