Quotes for: Infinity


Quotes for: Infinity

To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.

One thought, fills immensity.

Our knowledge can only be finite, while our ignorance must necessarily be infinite.

Death is not an event in life: we do not live to experience death. If we take eternity to mean not infinite temporal duration but timelessness, then eternal life belongs to those who live in the present.

The idea of the future, pregnant with an infinity of possibilities, is thus more fruitful than the future itself, and this is why we find more charm in hope than in possession, in dreams than in reality.

An infinity of passion can be contained in one minute, like a crowd in a small space.


Claude Debussy also said...

Art is the most beautiful of all lies.

I love music passionately. And because I love it I try to free it from barren traditions that stifle it.

Art is the most beautiful deception of all. And although people try to incorporate the everyday events of life in it, we must hope that it will remain a deception lest it become a utilitarian thing, sad as a factory.

Beauty must appeal to the senses, must provide us with immediate enjoyment, must impress us or insinuate itself into us without any effort on our part.
