Faith is taking the first step even when you don`t see the whole staircase.

Martin Luther King

We need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals. Remote from universal nature and living by complicated artifice, man in civilization surveys the creatures through the glass of his knowledge and sees thereby a feather magnified and the whole image in distortion. We patronize them for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate of having taken form so far below ourselves. And therein we err, and greatly err. For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren; they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth.

Henry Beston

The whole word is watching now and I wish they could see what I can see. Sometimes you have to go up really high to see how small you are.

Felix Baumgartner

The Internet is this whole new world that allows everyone to communicate and exchange information and be a perfect marketplace and just accelerate everybody`s lives. So, for me, the Internet was the greatest invention of mankind so far.

Kim Dotcom

It`s a very brave thing to fall in love. You have to be willing to trust somebody else with your whole being, and that`s very difficult, really difficult and very brave.

Nicole Kidman

Only children tell the whole truth, you know. That`s what makes them children.

Stephen King

The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed.

Buddha

The common people, on the whole, are still living in the world of absolute good and evil from which the intellectuals have long since escaped.

George Orwell

You can never pinpoint the exact moment that a species came to be, because it never did. Just like how you used to be a baby and now you're older, but there was no single day when you went to bed young and woke up old. (...) There was no first human. It sounds like a paradox, it sounds like it breaks the whole theory of evolution, but it's really a key to truly understanding how evolution works. Evolution happens like a movie, with frames moving by both quickly and gradually, and we often can't see the change while it's occurring. Every time we find a fossil, it's a snapshot back in time, often with thousands of frames missing in between, and we're forced to reconstruct the whole film. Life is what happens in between the snapshots. Instead of a nice smooth road this is a journey on stepping stones and we give each one their own name.

Joe Hanson

In the early days of the Internet, this was one of the medium's great hopes - that it would finally offer a medium whereby whole towns - and indeed countries - could co-create their culture through discourse. Personalization has given us something very different: a public sphere sorted and manipulated by algorithms, fragmented by design, and hostile to dialogue.

Eli Pariser

Our bodies are programmed to consume fat and sugars because they're rare in nature... In the same way, we're biologically programmed to be attentive to things that stimulate: content that is gross, violent, or sexual and that gossip which is humiliating, embarrassing, or offensive. If we're not careful, we're going to develop the psychological equivalent of obesity. We'll find ourselves consuming content that is least beneficial for ourselves or society as a whole. Just as the factory farming system that produces and delivers our food shapes what we eat, the dynamics of our media shape what information we consume.

Danah Boyd

If the only prayer you ever say in your whole life is "thank you", that would suffice.

Eckhart Meister

Some things don`t matter much [...]. Like the color of a house. How big is that in the overall scheme of life? But lifting a person`s heart - now, that matters. The whole problem with people is [...] they know what matters, but they don`t choose it.

Sue Monk Kidd

The whole point of faith, in fact, is to believe regardless of the evidence, which is the very antithesis of science.

Michael Shermer

I like mathematics because it is not human and has nothing particular to do with this planet or with the whole accidental universe - because, like Spinoza`s God, it won`t love us in return.

Bertrand Russell
