Clarity

Quote 2204

For now we see through a glass,darkly- but then face to face: now I know in part- but then shall I know even as also I am known - 1 Corinthians 13:12

Quote 2211

Through disappointment you can gain clarity, and with clarity comes conviction and true originality - Conan O'Brien http://j.mp/KXOsWy

Quote 2210

The scientists of today think deeply instead of clearly. One must be sane to think clearly, but one can think deeply and be quite insane - Nicola Tesla

Quote 2209

The great enemy of clear language is insincerity. When there is a gap between one's real and one's declared aims, one turns as it were instinctively to long words and exhausted idioms, like a cuttlefish spurting out ink - George Orwell

Quote 2207

Tell all the truth, but tell it slant. Success in circuit lies - Emily Dickinson

Quote 2205

If you can't say it clearly, you don't understand it yourself - John Searle

On Meaning

"To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never. In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common. This is to be my symphony" - William Henry Channing
