Is evolution a theory, a system, or an hypothesis? It is much more: it is a general condition to which all theories, all hypotheses, all systems must bow and which they must satisfy henceforward if they are to be thinkable and true.

From a purely positivist point of view, man is the most mysterious and disconcerting of all the objects met with by science.


Long before the awakening of thought on earth, manifestations of cosmic energy must have been produced which have no parallel today.

Historically, the stuff of the universe goes on becoming concentrated into ever more organized forms of matter.


The profoundly 'atomic' character of the universe is visible in everyday experience, in raindrops and grains of sand, in the hosts of the living, and the multitude of stars; even in the ashes of the dead.


Driven by the forces of love, the fragments of the world seek each other so that the world may come to being.


It doesn't matter if the water is cold or warm if you're going to have to wade through it anyway.


The universe as we know it is a joint product of the observer and the observed.


It is our duty as men and women to proceed as though the limits of our abilities do not exist.


Love is the affinity which links and draws together the elements of the world... Love, in fact, is the agent of universal synthesis.


The world is round so that friendship may encircle it.


Growing old is like being increasingly penalized for a crime you haven't committed.
