"Oh! then you loved the world. Eternal ones, love it eternally and evermore; and to woe too, you say: go, but return! For all joy wants-- eternity.” -- Friedrich Nietzche
"The universe is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper."
"God does not play dice with the universe; He plays an ineffable game of His own devising, which might be compared, from the perspective of the players, (ie everybody), to being involved in an obscure and complex version of poker in a pitch-dark room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a Dealer who won’t tell you the rules, and who smiles all the time."
