We are for ourselves in large measure what we see and have seen of ourselves reflected back to us by our friends, our loves, and our enemies.

Carlo Rovelli

In the mountains, we see a valley covered by a sea of white clouds. The surface of the clouds gleams, immaculate. We start to walk toward the valley. The air becomes more humid, then less clear; the sky is no longer blue. We find ourselves in a fog. Where did the well-defined surface of the clouds go? It vanished. Its disappearance is gradual; there is no surface that separates the fog from the sparse air of the heights. Was it an illusion? No, it was a view from afar. Come to think of it, it`s like this with all surfaces. This dense marble table would look like a fog if I were shrunk to a small enough, atomic scale. Everything in the world becomes blurred when seen close up. Where exactly does the mountain end and where do the plains begin? Where does the savannah begin and the desert end? We cut the world into large slices. We think of it in terms of concepts that are meaningful for us, that emerge at a certain scale.

Carlo Rovelli

Where large sums of money are concerned, it is advisable to trust nobody.

Agatha Christie

There is a conventional or popular point of view. There is a personal point of view. There is a large point of view which the majority share. There is a small point of view which just a few share. But there is no right point of view. You are always right. You are always wrong. It just depends from which pole you are looked at. Advances in any field are built upon people with the small or personal point of view.

Paul Arden

The history of philosophy is in large measure the history of very smart people making very tempting mistakes, and if you don`t know the history, you are doomed to making the same darn mistakes all over again.

Daniel Dennett

There is no smallest among the small and no largest among the large; but always something still smaller and something still larger.

Anaxagoras

One of the biggest problems with the world today is that we have large groups of people who will accept whatever they hear on the grapevine, just because it suits their worldview - not because it is actually true or because they have evidence to support it.

Neil deGrasse Tyson

If only God would give me some clear sign! Like making a large deposit in my name at a Swiss Bank.

Woody Allen

You've got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it.

Steve Jobs

Do I contradict myself?
Very well, then, I contradict myself,
(I am large - I contain multitudes.)

Walt Whitman

Happiness is [...] Having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family; especially if they live in another city.

George Burns

A large income is the best recipe for happiness I ever heard of.

Jane Austen

The difference between the almost-right word and the right word is really a large matter - it`s the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning.

Mark Twain

A city is a large community where people are lonesome together.

Herbert V. Prochnow
