    Surrender to the unknown and trust that the universe will lead you home.

  • By Anonym

    The future is frightening, I know. The choice is the hardest of all.

  • By Anonym

    That illusion of a world so shaped that it echoes every groan, of human beings so tied together by common needs and fears that a twitch at one wrist jerks another, where however strange your experience other people have had it too, where however far you travel in your own mind someone has been there before you - - is all an illusion. We do not know our own souls, let alone the souls of others. Human beings do not go hand in hand the whole stretch of the way. There is a virgin forest in each; a snowfield where even the print of birds' feet is unknown. Here we go alone, and like it better so. Always to have sympathy, always to be accompanied, always to be understood would be intolerable.

  • By Anonym

    The future vibrated with uncertainty. I had failed. I had ignorance. I had hope.

  • By Anonym

    Taking trips tore all of us up inside, for they seemed, each journey away from home, something that might have been less selfishly undertaken, or something that would test us, or something that had better be momentous, to justify such a leap into the dark. The torment and guilt - the torment of having the loved one go, the guilt of being the loved one gone - comes into my fiction as it did and does in my life. And most of all the guilt then was because it was true: I had left to arrive at some future and secret joy, at what was unknown, and what was no in New York, waiting to be discovered. My joy was connected with my writing; that was as much as I knew.

  • By Anonym

    The known universe always feels easier even when it's miserable.

  • By Anonym

    The goals we pursue are always veiled. A girl who longs for marriage longs for something she knows nothing about. The boy who hankers after fame has no idea what fame is. The thing that gives our every move its meaning is always totally unknown to us. Sabina was unaware of the goal that lay behind her longing to betray. The unbearable lightness of being —was that the goal?

  • By Anonym

    …the known had been so long dwarfed by the unknown that confusion was an easy bedfellow.

  • By Anonym

    The mind was rarely a rational thing when it came to the dark or the unknown.

  • By Anonym

    The more I work with birds, the more I believe in the undreamt, the things we are not given to know.

  • By Anonym

    The life of an adoptee is like an ancient voyager who searches for the unknown. The stars guided their destiny. They had their sights on the wonders that lay ahead of them. An adoptee travels in the opposite direction.

  • By Anonym

    The people through which the Tradition of the Sun spoke were people just like anyone else, and who, one morning or one evening, looked at the world and felt the presence of something greater. They had unwittingly plunged into an unknown sea, and, for the most part, they did not do so again. Everyone, at least once in each incarnation, possessed the secret of the Universe.

  • By Anonym

  • By Anonym

    Then the one called Raltariki is really a demon?" asked Tak. "Yes—and no," said Yama, "If by 'demon' you mean a malefic, supernatural creature, possessed of great powers, life span and the ability to temporarily assume virtually any shape—then the answer is no. This is the generally accepted definition, but it is untrue in one respect." "Oh? And what may that be?" "It is not a supernatural creature." "But it is all those other things?" "Yes." "Then I fail to see what difference it makes whether it be supernatural or not—so long as it is malefic, possesses great powers and life span and has the ability to change its shape at will." "Ah, but it makes a great deal of difference, you see. It is the difference between the unknown and the unknowable, between science and fantasy—it is a matter of essence. The four points of the compass be logic, knowledge, wisdom and the unknown. Some do bow in that final direction. Others advance upon it. To bow before the one is to lose sight of the three. I may submit to the unknown, but never to the unknowable.

  • By Anonym

    There is an awkward silence that overcomes you when cross paths with the person that kisses your heart the second that you meet them. It balances on the edge of unknown but always desired.

  • By Anonym

    There is no greater fear than the fear of uncertainty because the unknown is something that can’t be looked in the face, challenged, overcome.

  • By Anonym

    There’s a kind of time travel in letters, isn’t there? I imagine you laughing at my small joke; I imagine you groaning; I imagine you throwing my words away. Do I have you still? Do I address empty air and the flies that will eat this carcass? You could leave me for five years, you could return never—and I have to write the rest of this not knowing.

  • By Anonym

    There was no unknown. He loved me and I loved him. There was no question, no doubt, no uncertainty, which perhaps caused us to lose ourselves indefinitely and enter a void so permanent. One where we stood with such confidence, which sounds lovely; but when you believe you have everything, you simply lose everything.

  • By Anonym

    The road home is tinged with regret and the road forward is full of the unknown.

  • By Anonym

    • unknown quotes
  • By Anonym

    There are varieties of life unknown to you. Their whole identity is: you can't find out.

  • By Anonym

  • By Anonym

    The uncertainty of the future is a great blessing for us humans! Let the road ahead of us be completely unknown for us so that we can have the marvellous joy of discovering it!

  • By Anonym

    The unknown grayish mystifying forest was benumbed into frost-covered cold, and the tremendous pines towering above the dark marshy soil resembled a gathering of severe mute brothers from a forbidden ancient order worshiping forgotten gods no one had ever heard of outside of the world of secret occult visions.

  • By Anonym

    The thing I like about scientific discovery is that you can truly change the world by uncovering the unknown.

  • By Anonym

    Time passes way too slow when you're waiting for the unknown

  • By Anonym

    The unthinking embrace of irrationality is literally madness. But embracing rationality while denying the existence of any mystery to life and its meaning — that is no less a form of madness than is eager devotion to unreason.

  • By Anonym

    To be in a long-term state of limbo, not knowing the outcome or length of time waiting, is utterly, shatteringly exhausting.

  • By Anonym

    We fail so easily to see the difference between fear of the unknown and respect for the unknown, thinking that those who do not hasten in with bright lights and knives are deterred by a holy and superstitious fear. Respect for the unknown is the attitude of those who, instead of raping nature, woo her until she gives herself. But what she gives, even then, is not the cold clarity of the surface but the warm inwardness of the body - a mysteriousness which is not merely a negation, a blank absence of knowledge, but that positive substance which we call wonderfull.

  • By Anonym

    We fear which we cannot see

  • By Anonym

    What is known and what is unknown is always relative because what is unexpected depends entirely upon what we expect (desire)-- on what we had previously planned and presumed. The unexpected constantly occurs because it is impossible, in the absence of omniscience, to formulate an entirely accurate model of what actually is happening or of what should happen.

  • By Anonym

    What we desire, more than a season or weather, is the comfort Of being strangers, at least to ourselves.

  • By Anonym

    What we essentially want is to draw something unknown to us in all its shadowiness, not something we know in all its illumination.

  • By Anonym

    When they find what they don't like , they destroy it. Because it scares them-and you girls would scare them as much as anything they've ever seen.' 'Why?' asked Isobel. 'Because . . . because of what they believe.

  • By Anonym

    When the unknown becomes known, we lose something very big: The beauty of mystery!

  • By Anonym

    When you perceive through your senses, the object may be, of the outside world, but you see the object, inside of you, in your awareness field.

  • By Anonym

    Where there is mystery, it is generally supposed there must be evil.

  • By Anonym

    With every dream and with every love, you have to die to the old, and be reborn to the new. You must leave what you know behind, and surrender to the unknown.

  • By Anonym

    With life, everything that’s needed to be known can be known by human. No mystery can be hidden from you if you really try to look into it.
